%N Position of n^6 in the ordered union of {h^6, h >= 1} and {32*k^6, k >= 1}.

%C Let S = {h^6, h >= 1} and T = {32*k^6, k >= 1}. Then S and T are disjoint. The position of n^6 in the ordered union of S and T is A249117(n), and the position of 32*n^6 is A249118(n). Equivalently, the latter two give the positions of n*2^(2/3) and n*2^(3/2), respectively, when all the numbers h*2^(2/3) and k*2^(3/2) are jointly ranked.

%H Robert Israel, <a href="/A249117/b249117.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000</a>

%e {h^6, h >= 1} = {1, 64, 729, 4096, 15625, 46656, 117649, ...};

%e {32*k^6, k >= 1} = {32, 2048, 23328, 131072, 500000, ...};

%e so the ordered union is {1, 32, 64, 729, 2048, 4096, 15625, ...}, and a(2) = 3

%e because 2^6 is in position 3 of the ordered union.
