Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

See A118081 for numbers not representable as the sum of two odd composite numbers. Roberts shows that every even number greater than 38 is the sum of an odd composite number and one of the five composite numbers 9, 15, 21, 27, 33. - T. D. Noe, Jun 01 2008, Jun 05 2008
