(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A161420 V-toothpick sequence starting from a V-toothpick whose central point touch a straight line, as a V. 2
0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 19, 25, 31, 39, 51, 59, 69, 79, 99, 117, 127, 143, 163, 171 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The sequence gives the number of V-toothpicks after n-th stages on hexagonal net. A161421 (the first differences) gives the number added at the n-th stage. See A161206 for more information.

Also, it appears this is a H-toothpick sequence in the first quadrant on the square grid, starting with a D-toothpick from the point (0,0). The sequence gives the number of toothpicks and D-toothpicks after n-th stage. A161421 (the first differences) gives the number added at the n-th stage. For more information see A182838.
