 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Replace "3" with "x" and extend the definition of a to positive rationals and a becomes an isomorphism between positive rationals under multiplication and polynomials over Z under addition. This remark generalizes A001222, A048675 and A054841: evaluate said polynomial at x=1, x=2 and x=10, respectively. For examples of such evaluations at x=3, see "Other identities" in the Formula section. - Antti Karttunen, Jul 31 2015 REFERENCES Joseph J. Rotman, The Theory of Groups: An Introduction, 2nd ed.
