(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A185187 Smallest number for which it is necessary to violate the greedy algorithm to write it as a sum of n-th powers with at most A002804 terms 0
23, 50, 160, 466 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

2,1

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..5.

EXAMPLE

23 qualifies for a(2) because 23 as a sum of squares with the greedy algorithm is 16+4+1+1+1 (5 terms,) but A002804(2) = 4. 50 qualifies for a(3) because 50 as a sum of cubes with the greedy algorithm is 27+8+8+1+1+1+1+1+1+1 (10 terms,) but A002804(3) = 9.
