COMMENTS

(n-1)/(d(n)-1) is an integer if and only if n is in sequence A096738.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..80.

EXAMPLE

The positive divisors of 12 are 1,2,3,4,6,12. The differences between the pairs of consecutive divisors are 2-1=1, 3-2=1, 4-3=1, 6-4=2, 12-6=6. The average of these differences is (1+1+1+2+6)/5 = 11/5. So a(12) = floor(11/5) = 2.

MAPLE
