Table of n, a(n) for n=0..104.

EXAMPLE

a(21)=2 because "deux-un" has two syllables, which is shorter than "vingt-et-un";

a(41)=2 and not 3 because in french "quatre-un" is said "quatr'un", two syllables ("e" mute followed by a vowel is not pronounced);

a(42)=3 because "quatre-deux" has three syllables;

a(102)=2 because it is pronounced "cent-deux" and not "cent-et-deux".
