%N Least power of 3 having exactly n consecutive 4's in its decimal representation.

%C No more terms < 2*10^7.

%e a(3)=55 because 3^55(i.e. 174449211009120179071170507) is the smallest power of 3 to contain a run of 3 consecutive fours in its decimal form.

%t a = ""; Do[ a = StringJoin[a, "4"]; b = StringJoin[a, "4"]; k = 1; While[ StringPosition[ ToString[3^k], a] == {} || StringPosition[ ToString[3^k], b] != {}, k++ ]; Print[k], {n, 1, 10} ]
