Inverse: a101545; a101546(n) = a(a(n)).

From Bernard Schott, Jun 30 2019: (Start)

The terms can also be written simply following this array with 3 columns:

   1st column       2nd column          3rd column

        1      +        2          =         3

        4      +        5          =         9

        6      +        7          =        13

        8      +       10          =        18

       11      +       12          =        23

       14      +       15          =        29

       16      +       17          =        33

       ...             ...                  ...

Question: in which column ends up the repdigit R_m(d) with m times the digit d?

Answer: R_m(d) will be in:

1) column 1 if d = 1, 4, 6, 8, or if d = 9 and m is even;

2) column 2 if d = 2, 5, 7;

3) column 3 if d = 3, or if d = 9 and m is odd.

Problem coming from Kruzemeyer et al. (End)
