A323596 Number of (positive) iterations of f to reach an integer when starting from n/1. If no integer is ever reached then a(n) = -1. f(p/q) = (p + q) / (A000120(p) + A000120(q)). 0

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..79.

EXAMPLE

8/1 -> 9/2 -> 11/3 -> 14/5 -> 19/5 -> 24/5 -> 29/4 -> 33/5 -> 38/4=19/2 -> 21/4 -> 25/4 -> 29/4 and the 5-cycle repeats, so a(8) = -1.

13/1 -> 14/4=7/2 -> 9/4 -> 13/3 -> 16/5 -> 21/3=7 so a(13) = 5.

MATHEMATICA
