COMMENTS

a(n+1) = number of Mancala numbers <= n, see A007952; n occurs A028913(n-1) times consecutively. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jun 21 2008

a(n) = number of ones <= n in A130747; see also A002491. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 01 2009

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) = sqrt(Pi*n) + O(1)

a(n) = A073047(n) - 1.

EXAMPLE

If n=6 : s(0)=6, s(1)=6-6 mod 2=6, s(2)=6-6 mod 3=6, s(3)=6-6 mod 4=6-2=4, s(4)=4-4 mod 5=0, hence a(6)=4.

If s(0)=4, 4 ->4-4 mod 1=4 ->4-4 mod 2=4 ->4-4 mod 3=3 ->3-3 mod 4=0, hence s(4)=0 and a(4)=4.
