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

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 3, since prime(1) = 2 and prime(3) = 5 are the only primes whose multiples cannot end in 1. - Ryan Propper, Jul 29 2005

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..63.

R. Stephan, Factors and Primes in Two Smarandache Sequences, Smar. Notions 9 (1998), pp. 4-10.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 2 as 21 is divisible by prime(4) = 7.

The smallest reverse concatenation of natural numbers k..1 that is divisible by prime(5) = 11 is 1413121110987654321, so a(5) = k = 14.

MATHEMATICA

Do[p = Prime[n]; k = 1; s = ToString[k]; While[Mod[ToExpression[s], p] > 0, k++; s = ToString[k] <> s]; Print[k], {n, 4, 50}] (* Ryan Propper *)
