COMMENTS

This sequence is suggested at the link given in point 7 at the bottom of the page, but it is given as: I, II, III, IIII, IIV, IIIIV, IVIIV, ... The 5th term seems to use the "number" followed by "frequency" method (one appears 4 times -> "I"//"IV") but the 6th and 7th terms use the usual "frequency"//"number" method.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..16.

FORMULA

We write the Roman numerals as I, II, III, IV, V and convert the letters into 1's and 5's for the inclusion in the encyclopedia.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=I=1; a(2)="one I"="II"=11; a(3)=111; a(4)=1111; a(5)="four Is"="IVI"=151; and so on.
