 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Sorted Pentanacci Numbers, a.k.a. Sorted Fibonacci 5-step Sequence. Corrected and extended by T. D. Noe, who also found that Max = 334566999 occurs at a(67701). However, this is the only time that the maximum occurs. The cycle period has length 251784 and begins at a(1183787). Primes include: a(3) = 2, a(7) = 13, a(20) = 1499, a(22) = 1129, a(24) = 4789, a(30) = 4789, a(34) = 35899, a(36) = 1699, a(41) = 127, a(52) = 124577, a(62) = 33889, a(66) = 1579, a(67) = 25667, a(71) = 2789, a(80) = 4567, a(82) = 57899, a(87) = 23399, a(89) = 245899, a(90) = 349, a(93) = 346669.
