%e The divisors of 20 are 1,2,4,5,10,20. There are 2 pairs of consecutive divisors whose product divides 20: 1*2=2, 4*5 = 20. Likewise, there are 2 such products that are divisible by 20: 4*5=20, 10*20=200. So a(20) = 2.

%o (PARI)

%o \\ Two implementations, after the two different interpretations given by the author of the sequence:

%o A140774v1(n) = { my(ds = divisors(n),s=0); if(1==n,0,for(i=1,(#ds)-1,if(!(n%(ds[i]*ds[1+i])),s=s+1))); s; }

%o A140774v2(n) = { my(ds = divisors(n),s=0); if(1==n,0,for(i=1,(#ds)-1,if(!((ds[i]*ds[1+i])%n),s=s+1))); s; }

%Y Cf. A140773.

%Y Differs from A099042 for the first time at n=32, where a(32) = 3, while A099042(32) = 2.
