COMMENTS

Also, numbers providing record low values for the proportion of squarefree integers.
The proportion of nonsquarefree integers approaches 16/Pi^2. For low values of m the proportion in [1, m] tends to be lower, since squares appear late. But values of m for which the ratio in the interval [1, m] is larger than the limit value do exist. The first such one is 28. Therefore this sequence is finite and it can be proved that 176 is indeed its last term. The proportion of nonsquarefree numbers in [1, 176] is 70/176 = 0.397727272... and that of squarefree ones is 0.6022727...

EXAMPLE

Up to m = 9 there are 3 numbers which are divisible by some square: 4, 8 and 9, for a proportion of 3/9 = 1/3. No interval [1, k] for k < 9 has a ratio as high, so 9 is in the sequence.
