 A118291 a(1) = 1. a(n) = number of terms among the sequence's first (n-1) terms which are divisible by the largest prime dividing a(n-1), or which are divisible by 1 if a(n-1)= 1. 2

 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS If a(n-1) = 1, then a(n) = n-1, obviously. LINKS EXAMPLE a(13)= 12. So a(14) = the number of terms among the first 13 terms which are divisible by the largest prime dividing 12 (which is 3). a(7)=3 and a(13) = 12 are the two terms each divisible by 3, so a(14) = 2.
