Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A282033 An example of a collection of five sets (based on U.S. coinage) which is not an additive number system. 2
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 75, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000, 1100, 1200, 1300, 1400, 1500, 1600, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2000, 2100, 2200, 2300, 2400, 2500, 2600, 2700, 2800, 2900, 3000, 3100, 3200, 3300, 3400, 3500, 3600, 3700 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The five sets are the following:

1, 2, 3, 4;

5;

10, 20;

25, 50, 75;

100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000, 1100, 1200, ...

(the last set being infinite).

In contrast to A282032 this is not an additive number system because 26 for example can be represented in two ways as a sum of numbers from distinct sets (26 = 1+5+20 = 1+25).

FORMULA

From Colin Barker, Apr 16 2020: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1 + 4*x^5 + 5*x^6 - 5*x^7 + 20*x^8 + 75*x^11) / (1 - x)^2.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2) for n>12.
