EXAMPLE

After the terms 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, we can get 8 from 2*5 - 2, but not 9 (11 is not a product of two distinct terms from {1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7}), so a(7) = 9. - N. J. A. Sloane, Aug 06 2021

MATHEMATICA

a = {1, 2}; used = {a[[1]]*a[[2]] - 2}; Do[k = a[[-1]] + 1; While[MemberQ[used, k], k++]; used = Union[used, k*a - 2]; AppendTo[a, k], {n, 3, 60}]; a (* Ivan Neretin, Mar 06 2016 *)
