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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Also the number of primes whose reciprocal is a repeating decimal of length n. The number of numbers in each row of table A046107.

By Zsigmondy's theorem, a(n) >= 1. When a(n)=1, the corresponding prime is called a unique prime (see A007498, A040017 and A051627).
