 OFFSET 1,7 COMMENTS a(n) gives the distance of the rightmost zero from the right hand end of factorial base representation of n (A007623), particularly, 1 when n is even, and 0 for those cases when there are no nonleading zeros present (terms of A227157). Sequence starts from n=1, to avoid ambiguities with case zero. LINKS Antti Karttunen, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10080 EXAMPLE For n = 1, with factorial base representation (A007623) "1", there are no nonleading zeros at all, thus a(1) = 0. For n = 6, with representation "100", the rightmost zero occurs at digit-position 1 (when the least significant digit has index 1, etc.), thus a(6) = 1. For n = 7, with representation "101", the rightmost zero occurs at position 2, thus a(7) = 2. PROG (Scheme) (define (A257260 n) (let loop ((n n) (i 2)) (cond ((zero? n) 0) ((zero? (modulo n i)) (- i 1)) (else (loop (floor->exact (/ n i)) (+ 1 i)))))) CROSSREFS Cf. A227157 (positions of zeros), A000012 (even bisection).
