COMMENTS

If no base b gives any 4's then we take b=4.

a(n) > 4 for n >= 9 since 14 is n written in base n-4. - Chai Wah Wu, Feb 06 2016

Nathan Fox, First 10000 terms of A268236, A268237, A268238. Square brackets are used to separate the "digits" of A268236, since for n >= 66 these can be greater than 10.
