COMMENTS
a(n) is the n-th smallest positive integer with the property that, when spelled out in American English, has n+2 letters (or 0 if fewer than n such numbers exists).
The sequence is labeled "finite" because there is no widely accepted naming convention for arbitrarily large numbers.
The table {and length of each row} begins:
3..|.1..2..6.10.........{4}
4..|.4..5..9............{3}
5..|.3..7..8.40.50.60...{6}
6..|11.12.20.30.80.90...{6}

FORMULA
a(n) = A(n+2,n) where A(k,n) = n-th positive integer requiring exactly k letters (not including "and" or hyphens) in its English name, or 0 if no such integer.
EXAMPLE
a(1) = 1 because "one" is the first positive integer with 3 letters in its name.
a(2) = 5 because "five" is the second positive integer with 4 letters.
a(3) = 8 because "eight" is the third positive integer with 5 letters.
a(4) = 30 because "thirty" is the fourth positive integer with 6 letters.
a(5) = 0 because there are only three 7-letter positive integers: {15, 16, 70}.
