COMMENTS

In Math. Mag. 48 (1975) 301 one finds "C. W. Trigg, C. C. Oursler and R. Cormier and J. L. Selfridge have sent calculations on Problem 886 [Nov 1973] for which we had received only partial results [Jan 1975]. Cormier and Selfridge sent the following results: There appear to be five sequences beginning with integers less than 1000 which do not merge. These sequences were carried out to 10^8 or more." The five sequences are A003508, A105210-A105213.

EXAMPLE

a(2)=838 because a(1)=668, the distinct prime factors of a(1) are 2 and 167; finally, 1 + 668 + 2 + 167 = 838.
