Table of n, a(n) for n=1..16.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=119 because 3^119 (i.e., 599003433304810403471059943169868346577158542512617035467) is the smallest power of 3 to contain a run of 3 consecutive threes in its decimal form.

MATHEMATICA

a = ""; Do[ a = StringJoin[a, "3"]; b = StringJoin[a, "3"]; k = 1; While[ StringPosition[ ToString[3^k], a] == {} || StringPosition[ ToString[3^k], b] != {}, k++ ]; Print[k], {n, 1, 10} ]
