COMMENTS

Sequence A137994 could be defined as "least positive integer such that this one (without rounding) is increasing".
The term a(1)=7 is not surprising (3 + 1/7 = 3.14...) but it comes as a funny surprise that the next term, a(2)=159, matches the next 3 digits of Pi and a(3) just differs by 5 from the next 3 digits!
