Let p1 <= p2 <= ... <= pk be the prime factors of n, with repetition; let s = 1/p1 + 1/(p1*p2) + 1/(p1*p2*p3) + ... + 1/(p1*p2*...*pk); a(n) = numerator of s. a(1)=0 by convention.

COMMENTS

Note that s < 1 for all n (compare A322036). This follows easily by induction, since when when we increase n by multiplying it by a new (notsmaller) prime, we increase s by less than 1s.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..72.


EXAMPLE

If n=12 we get the prime factors 2,2,3, and s = 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/12 = 5/6. So a(12) = 5.
The fractions s for n >= 2 are 1/2, 1/3, 3/4, 1/5, 2/3, 1/7, 7/8, 4/9, 3/5, 1/11, 5/6, 1/13, 4/7, 2/5, 15/16, 1/17, 13/18, 1/19, 4/5, 8/21, ...
