COMMENTS
These are all divisible by 6, as J(2,m) = +1 if m = 1 or 7 mod 8 and -1 if m = 3 or 5 mod 8 and J(3,m) = +1 if m = 1 or 11 mod 12, -1 if m = 5 or 7 mod 12 and 0 if m = 3 or 9 mod 12 (where Jacobi symbol J(i,m) returns +1 if i is quadratic residue modulo odd number m), it follows that only when i=24*n it holds that J(2,i-1)=J(2,i+1)=J(3,i-1)=J(3,i+1)=+1 and thus only then the function A112046 (and A112053) depends on values of J(k>3,m).
