 A254717 a(n) is the smallest nonnegative integer such that a(n)! contains a string of exactly n consecutive 9's. 11

 OFFSET 0,2 LINKS EXAMPLE a(1) = 12 since 12! = 479001600 contains '9' and 12 is the smallest integer for which the condition is met, a(2) = 11 since 11! = 39916800 contains '99' and 11 is the smallest integer for which the condition is met.
