%C Partial Sums of A049820 - _Omar E. Pol_, Jun 18 2009.

%C The original definition was: Safe periods for the emergence of cicada species on prime number cycles.

%C See Table 9 in reference, page 75, which together with the chart on page 73 (see link) provide a mathematical basis for the emergence of cicada species on prime number cycles.

%C Also the number of 2-element nondividing subsets of {1, ..., n}. The a(6)=7 subsets of {1,2,3,4,5,6} with two elements where no element divides the other are: {2,3}, {2,5}, {3,4}, {3,5}, {4,5}, {4,6}, {5,6}. - _Alois P. Heinz_, Mar 08 2011

%C Sum of the number of proper nondivisors of all positive integers <= n. - _Omar E. Pol_, Feb 13 2014

%F a(n) = A000217(n) - A006218(n).

%e a(8) in A000217 minus a(8) in A006218 = a(7) above (28-16=12).

%e Referring to the chart referenced, when n-th year = 7 there are 16 x-markers.

%e These represent unsafe periods for cicada emergence: 28-16=12 safe periods.

%e The percent of safe periods for the entire 7 years is 12/28=~42.86%; for year 7 alone the calculation is 5/7 = 71.43%, a relatively good time to emerge.
