 Hints (Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
 A171617 a(n)=k is the smallest exponent of N=2^k of first prime(1)=2 where at least 5 equal decimal digits "n n n n n" appear in the decimal representation of N (n=0,1,...9). 1
 1491, 485, 314, 221, 315, 973, 220, 317, 316, 422 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS If we change the definition to allow for not just the digits but for the numbers, say "10" then this sequence can be extended. a(10) would become 263528 and a(11) would equal 165742. - Robert G.
