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

After the 57th terms all the numbers have some digits equal to zero thus the persistence is equal to 1.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..100.

EXAMPLE

Catalan number 429 -> 4*2*9=72 -> 7*2=14 -> 1*4=4 thus persistence is 3

MAPLE

P:=proc(n) local i, k, w, ok, cont; for i from 0 by 1 to n do k:=(2*i)!/(i!*(i+1)!); w:=1; ok:=1; if k<10 then print(0); else cont:=1; while ok=1 do while k>0 do w:=w*(k-(trunc(k/10)*10)); k:=trunc(k/10); od; if w<10 then ok:=0; print(cont); else cont:=cont+1; k:=w; w:=1; fi; od; fi; od; end: P(100);
