PROG

(This was in the formula section but is clearly a program in some language. - N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 18 2017)

f=1\n=n+1:a=n\x=n/3\ (Case 1) if int(x)=x then o=o+1:n=x:s=s+n: if n=1 then print s+t+a:e=0:o=0:s=0:t=0:n=a:return to n=n+1\if n<>1 then return to x=n/3\ (Case 2) if int(x)<>x then e=e+1\if f=1 then y=n*2+2:f=0:n=y:t=t+n:else y=n*2+1:f=1\n=y:t=t+n\if n=1 then print s+t+a:return to n=n+1:else return to x=n/3
