Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

FORMULA

A118411(n)/A118412(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} (1/A000389(n)).

A118411(n)/A118412(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} (1/C(n,5)).

A118411(n)/A118412(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} (1/(n*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3)*(n+4)/120)).

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1 = numerator of 1/1.

a(2) = 7 = numerator of 7/6 = 1/1 + 1/6.

a(3) = 17 = numerator of 17/14 = 1/1 + 1/6 + 1/21.

a(4) = 69 = numerator of 69/56 = 1/1 + 1/6 + 1/21 + 1/56.

a(5) = 55 = numerator of 55/42 = 1/1 + 1/6 + 1/21 + 1/56 + 1/126.

a(10) = 1250 = numerator of 1250/1001 = 1/1+ 1/6 + 1/21 + 1/56 + 1/126 + 1/252 + 1/462 + 1/792 + 1/1287 + 1/2002.

a(20) = 53125 = numerator of 53125/42504 = 1/1 + 1/6 + 1/21 + 1/56 + 1/126 + 1/252 + 1/462 + 1/792 + 1/1287 + 1/2002 + 1/3003 + 1/4368 + 1/6188 + 1/8568 + 1/11628 + 1/15504 + 1/20349 + 1/26334 + 1/33649 + 1/42504.
