COMMENTS

More sequences can be generated by replacing the digit 1 by any integers of the form 3x+1. However, the sequence won't be as interesting if the following digits (the 3's) are replaced by any other digits.

FORMULA

I have proved the following properties:

For n=12x+1, a(n)=7.

For n=12x+2, a(n)=7.

For n=12x+3, a(n)=11.

For n=12x+4, a(n)=9.

For n=12x+5, a(n)=7.

For n=12x+6, a(n)=17.

For n=12x+7, a(n)=7.

For n=12x+8, a(n)=7.

For n=12x+9, a(n)=11.

For n=12x+10, a(n)=9.

For n=12x+11, a(n)=7.

For n=12x, a(n) can be 17, 19, 23 or 25.

EXAMPLE

a(5)=7 because

133333 mod 2 = 1

133333 mod 3 = 1

133333 mod 4 = 1

133333 mod 5 = 3

133333 mod 6 = 1

133333 mod 7 = 4, which is the first time the result is even.

PROG

(Python)

n=1

a=13

while n<=1000:

    c=2

    while True:

        if (a%c)%2==1:

            c=c+1

        else:

            print(c, end=", ")

            break

    n=n+1

    a=10*a+3

(PARI) f(n) = (4*10^n-1)/3; \\ A097166

a(n) = my(k=2); while ((f(n) % k) % 2, k++); k; \\ Michel Marcus, Jul 05 2020
