EXAMPLE

The first 10 values of A140122(n)/a(n) = -1/4, -1/12, -7/36, -17/180, -209/1260, -25/252, -37/252, -281/2772, -9797/69300, -92711/900900. The 10th term of the sum is (-1/4)+(1/6)-(1/9)+(1/10)-(1/14)+(1/15)-(1/21)+(1/22)-(1/25)+(1/26) = -92711/900900 hence a(10) = 900900. The 20th term of the alternating sum is (-1/4)+(1/6)-(1/9)+(1/10)-(1/14)+(1/15)-(1/21)+(1/22)-(1/25)+(1/26)-(1/33)+(1/34)-(1/35)+(1/38)-(1/39)+(1/46)-(1/49)+(1/51)-(1/55)+(1/57) = -5218865543/46849502700, hence a(20) = 46849502700.
