A101391 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of compositions of n into k parts x_1, x_2, ..., x_k such that gcd(x_1,x_2,...,x_k) = 1 (2<=k<=n). 6

COMMENTS

If instead we require that the individual parts (x_i,x_j) be relatively prime, we get A282748. This is the question studied by Shonhiwa (2006). - N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 05 2017.

FORMULA

T(n, k) = Sum_{d|n}(binomial(d-1, k-1)*mobius(n/d).

EXAMPLE

T(6,3)=9 because we have 411,141,114 and the six permutations of 123 (222 does not qualify).

T(8,3)=18 because binomial(0,2)*mobius(8/1)+binomial(1,2)*mobius(8/2)+binomial(3,2)*mobius(8/4)+binomial(7,2)*mobius(8/8)=0+0+(-3)+21=18.
