Table of n, a(n) for n=1..14.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=32 because 3^32(i.e. 1853020188851841) is the smallest power of 3 to contain a run of 3 consecutive eights in its decimal form.

MATHEMATICA

a = ""; Do[ a = StringJoin[a, "8"]; b = StringJoin[a, "8"]; k = 1; While[ StringPosition[ ToString[3^k], a] == {} || StringPosition[ ToString[3^k], b] != {}, k++ ]; Print[k], {n, 1, 10} ]
