Adamson, Mar 01 2009 Numbers k such that k+1 is a square and k+5 is divisible by 8. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 27 2017 The concatenation of 8*A000217(n) and 99 is a term of the sequence. Example: for A000217(5) = 15, 8*15 = 120 and 12099 = a(27). In general, a(5*n+2) = 800*A000217(n) + 99. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 29 2017 LINKS T. D.
