A253298 Digital root for the following sequences, F(4*n)/F(4); F(12*n)/F(12); F(20*n)/F(20), where the pattern increases by 8, ad infinitum, with the Fibonacci numbers F = A000045. 2
1, 7, 3, 5, 5, 3, 7, 1, 9, 8, 2, 6, 4, 4, 6, 2, 8, 9, 1, 7, 3, 5, 5, 3, 7, 1, 9, 8, 2, 6, 4, 4, 6, 2, 8, 9, 1, 7, 3, 5, 5, 3, 7, 1, 9, 8, 2, 6, 4, 4, 6, 2, 8, 9, 1, 7, 3, 5, 5, 3, 7, 1, 9, 8, 2, 6, 4, 4, 6, 2, 8, 9 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

Cyclical and palindromic in two parts with periodicity 18: {1, 7, 3, 5, 5, 3, 7, 1, 9, 8, 2, 6, 4, 4, 6, 2, 8, 9}.

Digital root of the period is 9, its mean and median is 5, and its product is (9!)^2.

See A253368 for the initial motivation for this sequence.

From Peter M. Chema, Jul 04 2016: (Start)

A composite of three respective digital root sequences in alternation: a "halving sequence" of 1, 5, 7, 8, 4, 2, a "doubling sequence" of 7, 5, 1, 2, 4, 8, and a three-six-nine circuit of 3, 3, 9, 6, 6, 9.

Also the digital root of A000045(4n)/3 or A004187(n).  In general terms, sequences defined by Fib(x*n)/ Fib(x) where x=(8*a-4) all share the same digital root (e.g., F(4*n)/F(4); F(12*n)/F(12); F(20*n)/F(20); F(28*n)/F(28); F(36*n)/F(36), etc.) (End)
