COMMENTS

More sequences can be generated by replacing the digit 1 by any integers of the form 3x+1. However, the sequence won't be as interesting if the following digits (the 3's) are replaced by any other digits.

FORMULA

I have proved the following properties:
For n=12x+1, a(n)=7.
For n=12x+2, a(n)=7.
For n=12x+3, a(n)=11.
For n=12x+4, a(n)=9.
For n=12x+5, a(n)=7.
For n=12x+6, a(n)=17.
For n=12x+7, a(n)=7.
For n=12x+8, a(n)=7.
For n=12x+9, a(n)=11.
For n=12x+10, a(n)=9.
For n=12x+11, a(n)=7.
For n=12x, a(n) can be 17, 19, 23 or 25.


EXAMPLE

a(5)=7 because
133333 mod 2 = 1
133333 mod 3 = 1
133333 mod 4 = 1
133333 mod 5 = 3
133333 mod 6 = 1
133333 mod 7 = 4, which is the first time the result is even.
