COMMENTS

General form: (q*n-1)*q, cf. A017233 (q=3), A098502 (q=4). - Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Feb 16 2009

Numbers whose digital root is 6; that is, A010888(a(n)) = 6. (Ball essentially says that Iamblichus (circa 350) announced that a number equal to the sum of three integers 3n, 3n - 1, and 3n - 2 has 6 as what is now called the number's digital root.) - Rick L. Shepherd, Apr 01 2014
