%C Decimal expansion of 1/909.

%C Lexicographically earliest de Bruijn sequence for n = 2 and k = 2.

%C Except for first term, binary expansion of the decimal number 1/10 = 0.000110011001100110011... in base 2. - _Benoit Cloitre_, May 18 2002

%C Content of #2 binary placeholder when n is converted from decimal to binary. a(n) = n*(n-1)/2 mod 2. Example: a(7) = 1 since 7 in binary is 1 -1- 1 and (7*6/2) mod 2 = 1. - Anne M. Donovan (anned3005(AT)aol.com), Sep 15 2003

%C Expansion in any base b of 1/((b-1)*(b^2+1)) = 1/(b^3-b^2+b-1). E.g., 1/5 in base 2, 1/20 in base 3, 1/51 in base 4, etc. - _Franklin T. Adams-Watters_, Nov 07 2006

%C Except for first term, parity of the triangular numbers A000217. - _Omar E. Pol_, Jan 17 2012

%C Except for first term, more generally: 1) Parity of the k-polygonal numbers, if k is odd (Cf. A139600, A139601). 2) Parity of the generalized k-gonal numbers, for even k >= 6. - _Omar E. Pol_, Feb 05 2012
