COMMENTS

Golomb shows that solutions exist for each n>1.

For all known terms, we have 2.4*a(n) < a(n+1) < 2.7*a(n) + 7. A038627(n) gives number of natural solutions of the equation m = pi(n*m). - Farideh Firoozbakht, Jan 09 2005

a(n) grows as exp(n)/n. Thus, a(n+1)/a(n) tends to e=exp(1) as n grows. - Max Alekseyev, Oct 15 2017

FORMULA

a(n) = limit of f^(k)(1) as k grows, where f(x)=A000720(n*x). Also, a(n) = f^(A293529(n))(1). - Max Alekseyev, Oct 11 2017

EXAMPLE

pi(3059) = 437 and 3059/437 = 7, so a(7)=437.
