Starting from n: as long as the decimal representation starts with a positive even number, divide the largest such prefix by 2; a(n) corresponds to the final value.

COMMENTS

For n > 0, as long as we have a number whose decimal representation is the concatenation of a positive even number, say u, and a possibly empty string of odd digits, say v, we replace this number with the concatenation of u/2 and v; eventually only odd digits remain.

FORMULA

a(n) <= n with equality iff n = 0 or n belongs to A014261.
a(2*n) = a(n).
a(10*k + v) = 10*a(k) + v for any k >= 0 and v in {1, 3, 5, 7, 9}.
a(n) = 1 iff n is a power of 2.
a(n) = a(n+1) iff n belongs to A215145.


EXAMPLE

For n = 10000:
 10000 gives 10000/2 = 5000,
 5000 gives 5000/2 = 2500,
 2500 gives 2500/2 = 1250,
 1250 gives 125/2 = 625,
 625 gives 62/2 followed by 5 = 315,
 315 has only odd digits, so a(10000) = 315.
