 A329249 Starting from n: as long as the decimal representation starts with an odd number, multiply the largest such prefix by 2; a(n) corresponds to the final value. 2

%N Starting from n: as long as the decimal representation starts with an odd number, multiply the largest such prefix by 2; a(n) corresponds to the final value.

%C As long as we have a number whose decimal representation is the concatenation of odd number, say u, and a possibly empty string of even digits allowing leading zeros, say v, we replace this number with the concatenation of u*2 and v; eventually only even digits remain.

%F a(n) >= n with equality iff n belongs to A014263.

%F a(2*n+1) = a(4*n+2).

%F a(10*k + v) = 10*a(k) + v for any k >= 0 and v in {0, 2, 4, 6, 8}.

%F a(5^k) = 2*10^k for any k >= 0 (the ratio a(n)/n is unbounded).

%e For n = 127:

%e - 127 gives 127*2 = 254,

%e - 254 gives 25*2 followed by 4 = 504,

%e - 504 gives 5*2 followed by 04 = 1004,

%e - 1004 gives 1*2 followed by 004 = 2004,

%e - 2004 has only even digits, so a(127) = 2004.
