 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Interleaving of A058481 and A100774 without initial term 0. Apparently a(n) = A062318(n+2)-1. The terms beginning with a(2) are the row numbers in Pascal’s Triangle where every 3rd element in those rows is divisible by 3 and none of the other elements in those rows are divisible by 3. - Thomas M. Green, Apr 03 2013 REFERENCES Thomas M. Green, Prime Patterns in Pascal's Triangle, paper in review process, 2013. LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,3,-3). FORMULA a(n) = A038754(n+1)-2. a(n) = A038754(n+2)-2. a(n) = 3*a(n-2)+4 for n > 2; a(1) = 1, a(2) = 4. a(n) = (5-(-1)^n)*3^(1/4*(2*n-1+(-1)^n))/2-2. G.f.: x*(1+3*x)/((1-x)*(1-3*x^2)). EXAMPLE For n = 3, a(3) = 7.  The binomial coefficients of the 7th row of Pascal's Triangle are 1 7 21 35 35 21 7 1 and every 3rd element is a multiple of 3. - Thomas M.
