FORMULA

a(n+7) = 2*a(n) for n >= 21. - Rick L. Shepherd, Apr 06 2006

G.f.: (15*x^27 + 9*x^22 + 15*x^20 + 5*x^16 + 9*x^15 + 15*x^13 + 3*x^11 + 5*x^9 + 9*x^8 - 15*x^6 - 5*x^5 - 3*x^4 - 4*x^3 - 5*x^2 - 9*x - 1) / (2*x^7 - 1). - Colin Barker, Feb 14 2014

EXAMPLE

The ratios are 1 (c), 9/8 (d), 5/4 (e), 4/3 (f), 3/2 (g), 5/3 (a), 15/8 (b); followed by these 7 numbers multiplied by successive powers of 2.
