COMMENTS

For n >= 3: a(n) = the smallest number > a(n-1) such that ((a(n-2)+a(n-1)) * (a(n-2) + a(n)) * (a(n-1) + a(n))) / (a(n-2) * a(n-1) * a(n)) is integer (= 10 for n >= 4).

LINKS

FORMULA

a(n) = A038754(n) for n >= 2.

a(2n) = 3/2 * a(2n-1) for n>=2, a(2n+1) = 2 * a(2n).

EXAMPLE

For n = 5; a(3) = 6, a(4) = 9, a(5) = 18 before [(6+9)*(6+18)*(9+18)]  / (6*9*18) = 10.
