A246426 Number of steps in base n after which all digits > 0 are present in x(i) where x(i) = x(i-1) + sum of missing digits of x(i-1) with x(0) = 0. 0

COMMENTS

Let x(i) = x(i-1) + A216407(x(i-1)), with x(0) = 0. a(n) is the smallest i such that A216407(x(i)) = 0.

EXAMPLE

154 + missingdigit(154, 10) = 154 + 2+3+6+7+8+9 = 189.

The sequence looks like this in bases 2, 3 and 10:

0 + missingdigit(0,2) = 0 + 1 = 1.

missingdigit(1,2) = 0. (1 step)

0 + missingdigit(0,3) = 0 + (1+2) = 10.

10 + missingdigit(10,3) = 10 + 2 = 12.

missingdigit(12,3) = 0. (2 steps)

0 + missingdigit(0,10) = 0 + 45 = 45.

45 + missingdigit(45) = 45 + 36 = 81.

81 + missingdigit(81) = 81 + 36 = 117.

117 + missingdigit(117) = 117 + 37 = 154.

154 + missingdigit(154) = 154 + 35 = 189.

After 6824303 steps, the sequence reaches 123456978 and stops, because missingdigit(123456978) = 0.

PROG
