EXAMPLE

From Omar E. Pol, Mar 01 2015: (Start)
Written as an irregular triangle in which the row lengths are the terms of A011782, the sequence begins:
1;
3;
3,7;
3,9,7,13;
3,9,9,19,7,21,13,27;
3,9,9,21,9,27,19,35,7,21,21,41,13,39,27,55;
3,9,9,21,9,27,21,39,9,27,27,55,19,57,35,73,7,21,21,49,21,63,41,75,13,39,39,79,27,81,55,109;
3,9,9,21,9,27,21,39,9,27,27,57,21,63,39...
...
Note that in each row a fraction of the first terms are equal to 3 times the beginning of the sequence itself. For rows 06 the fractions are: 0, 1, 1/2, 1/2, 3/8, 3/8, 11/32. Apparently the fractions converge to a constant.
