Very interesting. Would never have got the answer. I am going to pass this to a couple of family members, who think they are "so smart". If you do not mind, that is. Thanks :wink:

What about 101 as a start number? (one hundred And one)

Very nice teaser! I tried to work it out mathematically, and was leaning toward 1 being the answer using a convoluted logarithmic function. I finally resorted to searching OEIS for the sequence 3, 9, 27, 2, 0 and came up with http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/ A114181 which is [log10(n)] of http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/ A029722, which is your sequence. :P
