A128537 a(n) = denominator of r(n): r(n) is such that, for every positive integer n, the continued fraction (of rational terms) [r(1);r(2),...,r(n)] equals n(n+1)/2, the n-th triangular number. 2

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..25.

FORMULA

For n >=4, r(n) = -(2n-1)*(2n-3)/(n(n-2) r(n-1)).

EXAMPLE

The 4th triangular number, 10, equals 1 +(1/2 +1/(-10/3 +16/21)).

The 5th triangular number, 15, equals 1 +(1/2 +1/(-10/3 +1/(21/16 -5/16))).
