Clark Kimberling, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

EXAMPLE

Let s(n) = n(n+1)/2 = A000217(n).  Then

a(1) = 4; s(4) = 10 = 6 + 3 + 1;

a(2) = 6; s(6) = 21 = 15 + 6;

a(3) = 7; s(7) = 28 = 21 + 6 + 1;

a(4) = 9; s(9) = 45 = 36 + 6 + 3.

MATHEMATICA

z = 200;  s = Table[n (n + 1)/2, {n, 1, z}]; t = Table[{s[[n]], #, Total[#] == s[[n]]} &[DeleteCases[-Differences[FoldList[If[#1 - #2 >= 0, #1 - #2, #1] &, s[[n]], Reverse[Select[s, # < s[[n]] &]]]], 0]], {n, z}]

r[n_] := s[[n]] - Total[t[[n]][[2]]];

tr = Table[r[n], {n, 2, z}]  (* A242284 *)

c = Table[Length[t[[n]][[2]]], {n, 2, z}] (* A242285 *)

f = 1 + Flatten[Position[tr, 0]]  (* A242286 *)

f (f + 1)/2  (* A242287 *) (* Peter J. C. Moses, May 06 2014 *)
