EXAMPLE
Starting from n = 12, the derived sequence is A203639(12) = 4, A203639(4) = 4, A203639(4) = 4, etc, and the sequence 12, 4, 4, 4, 4, ... has cycle length 1. Therefore a(12) = 1.
From Antti Karttunen, Sep 13 2017: (Start)
Starting from n = 16, the derived sequence is A203639(16) = 32, A203639(32) = 80, A203639(80) = 32, etc, and the sequence 16, 32, 80, 32, 80, ... has cycle length 2. Therefore a(16) = 2.
Starting from n = 2916, the derived sequence is A203639(2916) = 5832, A203639(5832) = 17496, A203639(17496) = 61236, A203639(61236) = 20412, A203639(20412) = 5832, etc, and the sequence 2916, 5832, 17496, 61236, 20412, 5832, 17496, 61236, 20412, ... has cycle length 4. Therefore a(2916) = 4. This is also the first point where the sequence attains a value larger than 2. (End)
