Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A118522 Define sequence S_n by: initial term = n, reverse digits and add 3 to get next term. It is conjectured that S_n always reaches a cycle. Sequence gives number of steps for S_n to reach a cycle. 3

Initial cycles have length 3 or 6.

From Lars Blomberg, Jan 15 2018: (Start)

For n < 10^8, the only cycles found are the following:

  [4,7,10]

  [18,84,51]

  [29,95,62]

  [11,14,44,47,77,80]

  [12,24,45,57,78,90]

  [15,54,48,87,81,21]

  [16,64,49,97,82,31]

  [19,94,52,28,85,61]

  [22,25,55,58,88,91]

  [26,65,59,98,92,32]

The union of all of them has 51 terms (= 3*3 + 7*6): [4, 7, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 31, 32, 44, 45, 47, 48, 49, 51, 52, 54, 55, 57, 58, 59, 61, 62, 64, 65, 77, 78, 80, 81, 82, 84, 85, 87, 88, 90, 91, 92, 94, 95, 97, 98] (End)
