From Artur Jasinski, Oct 14 2008: (Start)

a(n) = Number of numbers removed in first step of Eratosthenes's sieve for n!

a(5)=A145532(1), a(6)=A145533(1), a(7)=A145534(1), a(8)=A145535(1), a(9)=A145536(1), a(10)=A145537(1). (End)

Generally, for n >= m, the formula a(n) = n*(a(n-1) + 1) - 1 applies to all natural numbers of the form (n!-m)/m, m >= 2. - Bob Selcoe, Mar 28 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..floor(n/2)} s(n,n-2*k), where s(n,k) are Stirling numbers of the first kind, A048994. - Mircea Merca, Apr 07 2012

a(n) = n*(a(n-1) + 1) - 1. - Bob Selcoe, Mar 28 2015
