COMMENTS

Powers of 2 need 1 term or 2 terms parenthesized, whereas powers of 3 need 2 or 3 terms parenthesized, when 3 then the middle term is a power of 2. See A227928. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 09 2013

.  a(12) + a(13)          =  109 + 147        =  256 =  2^8

.  a(14)                                      =  512 =  2^9
