Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

A100832 Amenable numbers: n such that there exists a multiset of integers (s(1), ..., s(n)) whose size, sum and product are all n. 0

COMMENTS

Essentially the same as A042948.

The set {s(i)} is closed under multiplication. - Lekraj Beedassy, Jan 21 2005

FORMULA

Consists of the numbers n == 0 or 1 (mod 4), excluding n=4.

a(n)=a(n-1)+a(n-2)-a(n-3), n>4. G.f.: x*(1+3*x)*(1+x-x^2)/(1-x-x^2+x^3). [Colin Barker, Jan 26 2012]

EXAMPLE

5 and 8, for instance, are in the sequence because we have 5=1-1+1-1+5=1*(-1)*1*(-1)*5 and 8=1-1+1-1+1+1+2+4=1*(-1)*1*(-1)*1*1*2*4.
