A111233 Number of nonempty subsets of {1, 1/2, 1/3, ..., 1/n} that sum to an integer. 2

COMMENTS

If the subset was {1/2, 1/3, 1/4, ..., 1/n}, that is the subset is lacking the element 1, than the sequence would be (A111233(n)-1)/2. - Robert G. Wilson v, Sep 23 2006

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..43.

FORMULA

a(p^e) = a(p^e-1). - Robert G. Wilson v, Sep 23 2006

EXAMPLE

1, 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/6 = 1 and 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/6 = 2 are integers, so a(6)=3.
