COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n > 3, since prime(1) = 2 and prime(3) = 5 are the only primes whose multiples cannot end in 1.  Ryan Propper, Jul 29 2005

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 2 as 21 is divisible by prime(4) = 7.
The smallest reverse concatenation of natural numbers k..1 that is divisible by prime(5) = 11 is 1413121110987654321, so a(5) = k = 14.


MATHEMATICA

Do[p = Prime[n]; k = 1; s = ToString[k]; While[Mod[ToExpression[s], p] > 0, k++; s = ToString[k] <> s]; Print[k], {n, 4, 50}] (* Ryan Propper *)
