COMMENTS

It appears that if p is a prime with 2 as a primitive root (A001122), then a(p)=(p1)/2. This has been confirmed for primes up to 2000. See A136042 for the definition of the MRexpansion of a positive real number.

EXAMPLE

In A136042 it is shown that the base2 MRexpansion of 1/5 is {3,1,3,1,3,1,3,1,...}, with periodlength 2, so a(5)=2.
