(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A238088 a(n) is the smallest k > 0 such that the first n multiples of k have the same sum of digits, but (n+1)k has a different one. a(n)=0 if no such k exists. 2

COMMENTS

a(10*t-1) = 0 for t > 0, because if the first 10*t-1 multiples of a number k have the same sum of digits, then 10*t*k also has the same sum, since sod(10*t*k) = sod(t*k).

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 135 since 1*135 = 135, 2*135 = 270, 3*135 = 405 and 4*135 = 540 all have the same sum of digits (9) while 5*135 = 675 has a different sum of digits.

MATHEMATICA

sod[n_] := Plus @@ IntegerDigits@n; okQ[n_, k_] := Catch@Block[{s = sod@k}, Do[If[ sod[j*k] != s, Throw@ False], {j, 2, n}]; sod[k*(n + 1)] != s]; a[n_] := If[ Mod[n, 10] == 9, 0, Block[{k = 1}, While[! okQ[n, k], k++]; k]]; Array[a, 20]

PROG
