A350186 Numbers of multiplicative persistence 7 which are themselves the product of digits of a number. 7
338688, 826686, 2239488, 3188646, 6613488, 14224896, 3416267673274176, 6499837226778624 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The multiplicative persistence of a number mp(n) is the number of times the product of digits function p(n) must be applied to reach a single digit, i.e., A031346(n).

The product of digits function partitions all numbers into equivalence classes. There is a one-to-one correspondence between values in this sequence and equivalence classes of numbers with multiplicative persistence 8.

There are infinitely many numbers with mp of 1 to 11, but the classes of numbers (p(n)) are postulated to be finite for sequences A350181....


This sequence consists of the numbers A007954(k) such that A031346(k) = 8,

These are the numbers k in A002473 such that A031346(k) = 7,


- they factor into powers of 2, 3, 5 and 7 exclusively.

- p(n) goes to a single digit in 7 steps.

Postulated to be finite and complete.

a(9), if it exists, is > 10^20000, and likely > 10^119000.

338688 is in this sequence because:

- 338688 goes to a single digit in 7 steps: p(338688) = 27648, p(27648) = 2688, p(2688)=768, p(768)=336, p(336)=54, p(54)=20, p(20)=0.

- p(4478976) = p(13477889) = 338688, etc.
