Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A119486 Numbers of children for which there is a subset which cannot be generated by a counting-out game. 1
9, 12, 15, 18, 20, 21, 24, 25, 27, 28, 30, 33 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

1,1

COMMENTS

The numbers were generated by an exhaustive search via a C-program.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..12.

FORMULA

Conjecture (by J. Fricke and G. Woeginger): The sequence contains all numbers n with an odd prime divisor p satisfying n/p>2.

EXAMPLE

For 9 children 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, there is no possibility to select 3,4,6,7 (in any order) by a counting-out game, e.g. for selecting 3,4,6,7 the count-to number has to be 3 mod 9, 1 mod 8, 2 mod 7 and 1 mod 6, which is impossible.

CROSSREFS

Complement of A119485.

Sequence in context: A176656 A248903 A138945 * A235341 A161345 A102655

Adjacent sequences:  A119483 A119484 A119485 * A119487 A119488 A119489
