Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The persistence of a number is the number of times you need to multiply the digits together before reaching a single digit. a(3) and a(4) seem not to exist.

FORMULA

a(n) = 6*n-floor(n/120) for n > 119.

EXAMPLE

a(9)=394 because 394=[477]->[237]->[46]->[26]->[13]->[3] and no smaller n has persistence 5 in base 9.
