COMMENTS

The persistence of a number is the number of times you need to multiply the digits together before reaching a single digit. a(7)=1086400325525346, a(10)=2677889, a(11)=757074, a(8) and a(9) seem not to exist.

FORMULA

a(n) = 9*n-[n/40320] for n > 40319.

EXAMPLE

a(13) = 7577 because 7577 is the fewest number with persistence 8 in base 13.
