COMMENTS

In looking at the Fibonacci sequence I happened to notice that after each pair of terms >1 the product of terms divided by the sum of terms produced an integral quotient every other time. Example 240/20=12, integral.

FORMULA

a(1)=240 because in the Fibonacci sequence up to 8 : 1 1 2 3 5 8, the product is 240 1*1*2*3*5*8. The sum is 1+1+2+3+5+8=20 (see A003481). The integral quotient is 12. From then on, every other pair produces an integral quotient.

EXAMPLE

This table illustrates the alternating nature of the first three integral quotients: 1 1 2 3 -- 6/7=.85+ 5 8 -- 240/20=12 Integral 13 21 -- 65520/54=1213.33+ 34 55 -- 122522400/143=856800 Integral 89 144 -- 1570247078400/376=4176189038.29+ 233 377 -- 137932073613734400/986=139890541190400 Integral etc.
