Table of n, a(n) for n=1..100.


FORMULA

If n contains a 1 or 0, then a(n) = 0
Otherwise, if d=number of digits in n, then a(n)=3^d.


EXAMPLE

If any digit in n is 1 or 0, then a(n) = 0 because telephone keys 1 and 0 represent no letters
a(2)=3 because "3" on a keypad can represent "d", "e", or "f".
a(23)=9 because "2" on a keypad represents the letters "abc" and "3" represents "def", and there are 9 possible combinations taking one letter from each of these sets in this order.
