EXAMPLE

For example, a(12)=14 because of {9, 3, 6, 12, 4, 8, 2, 10, 5, 1, 7, 14} and the fact that no sequence of 12 distinct positive integers < 14 has this division property.

a(32) = 40 because of {22, 11, 33, 3, 39, 13, 26, 2, 34, 17, 1, 10, 20, 40, 8, 16, 32, 4, 28, 14, 7, 35, 5, 15, 30, 6, 24, 12, 36, 18, 9, 27};

a(34) = 42 because of {22, 11, 33, 3, 39, 13, 26, 2, 34, 17, 1, 10, 20, 40, 8, 16, 32, 4, 28, 14, 42, 21, 7, 35, 5, 15, 30, 6, 24, 12, 36, 18, 9, 27};

a(37) = 45 because of {17, 34, 2, 38, 19, 1, 26, 13, 39, 3, 33, 11, 22, 44, 4, 16, 32, 8, 24, 6, 12, 36, 18, 9, 45, 15, 30, 10, 20, 40, 5, 35, 7, 21, 42, 14, 28}.
