FORMULA

a(n+1) / A236436(n+1) =  A072045(n)/A072044(n) / A038110(n+1)/A060753(n+1) because 1+x = (1-x^2) / (1-x).

a(n) / A236436(n) = product_{k=1..n-1} (1 + 1/prime(k)) ~ (6/Pi^2)*exp(gamma)*log(n) as n -> infinity, by Mertens' theorem.

EXAMPLE

(1 + 1/2)*(1 + 1/3)*(1 + 1/5)*(1 + 1/7) = 96/35 has numerator a(5) = 96.
