COMMENTS

The reference gives the sequence without the initial 1 and then it is "alternate 3n+2 and 2n+3".
An alternative solution for this sequence is to consider the first second differences repeat giving 2, 3, 5, 5, 8, 7, 11, 12, 14, 14, 17, 16, 20, 21.  Lorraine Gregory, Ed.D. (lgregory(AT)lssu.edu), Jan 19 2009
