A254716 a(n) is the smallest nonnegative integer m such that m! contains a string of exactly n consecutive 8's, or -1 if no such m exists. 10

EXAMPLE
a(1) = 11 since 11! = 39916800 contains '8' and 11 is the smallest integer for which the condition is met. (In 9! the '8's occur in a substring of length 2.)
a(2) = 9 since 9! = 362880 contains '88' and 9 is the smallest integer for which this condition is met.
MATHEMATICA
