A117817 Let T_n be the infinite sequence formed by starting with 1 and repeatedly reversing the digits and adding n to get the next term. If T_n eventually reaches a cycle, sequence gives length of that cycle, otherwise -1. 72

COMMENTS

a(multiple of 10) = -1 (see A117816). a(15) = -1 (see A118532). a(n) is a multiple of 9/gcd(9,n) unless it is -1. - Martin Fuller, May 12 2006

For a discussion of the -1 entries see A117816.
