A136273 a(0) = 0; for n>0, a(n) = period length of the decimal expansion of the number Sum_{i>=1} 2^(-n*i). Also period length of the fractions 1/b(n), where b(n) = 2*b(n-1) + 1, with b(1)=1. 0

COMMENTS

In base 2 consider the numbers 0.1111111..., 0.01010101...., 0.001001001..., 0.000100010001.... where the period [0 k times, 1], where k=0,1,2,3,.... Then convert to base 10. The sequence gives the length of each period.

The period length of the fraction 1/A000225(n) = 1/(2^n-1) for n>0. - Robert G. Wilson v, Mar 30 2008
