COMMENTS

The k are the "semidivisors" or nondivisor regular numbers of n as counted by A243822(n).
All nonzero terms k are composite and pertain to composite rows n. This is because prime k must either divide or be coprime to n, and k = 1 is both a divisor of and coprime to n.
Row n for prime p contains zero, since numbers 1 <= k < p must either divide or be coprime to prime p.
Row n for prime powers p^e contains zero, since there is only one prime divisor p of p^e and every power 1 <= m <= e of p divides p^e.
Row n = 4 is a special case of composite n that contains zero. This is because 4 is the smallest composite number; there are no composites k < n.
Thus rows n for composite n > 4 contain at least 1 nonzero value.
In base n, 1/a(n) has a terminating expansion with at least 2 places.

EXAMPLE

For n = 12, the numbers 1 <= k < n such that the prime divisors p of k also divide n are {2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9}; {2, 3, 4, 6} divide n = 12, thus row n = 12 is {8, 9}.

CROSSREFS

Union of A027750 and nonzero terms of a(n) = A162306, thus A000005(n) + A243822(n) = A010846(n).
The union of nonzero terms of a(n) and A272619 = A133995, thus A243822(n) + A243823(n) = A045763(n).
