A171827 Nonnegative integers that can be made by using exactly four fours (4 4's) and the four basic operators {+, -, *, /}. 13
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 15, 16, 17, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 48, 60, 64, 68, 80, 128, 256 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

1,3

COMMENTS

Every integer can be made if other operators are allowed (e.g., 14 = 4!/4 + 4 + 4). The sequence is finite: a(26) = 4*4*4*4=256 is the last term.

LINKS

EXAMPLE

Example: a(11) = 12 since 12 = (4 - 4/4) * 4.

PROG

(PARI) A171827(n=4, S=Vec([[n]], n))={for(n=2, n, S[n]=Set(concat(vector(n\2, k, concat([concat([[T+U, T-U, U-T, if(U, T/U), if(T, U/T), T*U] | T <- S[n-k]]) | U <- S[k]]))))); [t|t <- S[n], t>=0 && type(t)=="t_INT"]} \\ A171827() yields this sequence, use optional arg to compute variants. - M.
