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.

COMMENTS

This is to A136117 as A000384 is to A000326. Duke and Schulze-Pillot (1990) proved that every sufficiently large integer (and hence every sufficiently large hexagonal number) can be written as the sum of three hexagonal numbers.

FORMULA

{x: x>0 and x in A000384 and x = A000384(i) + A000384(j) for i>0 and j>0}, where A000384 = {n*(2*n-1) for n > 0}.

EXAMPLE

hex(19) = 703 = 378 + 325 = hex(14) + hex(13).

hex(21) = 861 = 630 + 231 = hex(18) + hex(11).

hex(25) = 1225 = 1035 + 190 = hex(23) + hex(10).

hex(38) = 2850 = 2415 + 435 = hex(35) + hex(15).

hex(39) = 3003 = 2850 + 153 = hex(38) + hex(9) = 2415 + 435 + 153 = hex(35) + hex(15) + hex(9).

hex(48) = 4560 = 2415 + 2145 = hex(35) + hex(33).
