%N The c coefficients of the transform ax^2 + (4a/k - b)x + 4a/k^2 + 2b/k + c= 0 for a,b,c = 1,-1,-1, k = 1,2,3...

%C The positive/negative roots of ax^2 + bx + c = 0 combine with the negative/positive roots of (ck^2 - bk + c)x^2 +(2ck - b)x + c = 0 to define a point on the hyperbola kxy + x + y = 0. To shift such points (roots) to the hyperbola’s other line, put the coefficients of these equations into the formula ax^2 + (4a/k - b)x + 4a/k^2 + 2b/k + c = 0. Let a,b,c = 1,-1,-1 and k = 1,2,3... Then the coefficients given by this last equation are the sequence 1,5,5; 1,3,1; 1,7/3,1/9... Clearing fractions, the c coefficients are the sequence above.

%C The n-th term = the (positive) n-4th term of A229525.
