FORMULA

a(n) = numerator of x(n) where x(0)=1, x(2n+1) = x(2n) (4n+1)/(4n+2), x(2n+2) = x(2n+1)(4n+4)/(4n+3). - Matthew Conroy Jun 26 2006

EXAMPLE

1, 1/2, 2/3, 5/9, 40/63, 4/7, ...

MATHEMATICA

a[0] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = a[n - 1] If[OddQ[n], (2 n - 1)/(2 n), (2 n)/(2 n - 1)]; A120031[n_] := Numerator[a[n]]; Array[A120031, 26] (* JungHwan Min, Nov 08 2016 *)
