a(n) = number of natural number m such that number of steps of iterations of {r - (largest divisor d < r)} needed to reach 1 starting at r = m is equal to n.

Example (a(4)=5): There are five numbers (7,9,10,12,16) with 4 steps of defined iteration: 7-1=6, 6-3=3, 3-1=2, 2-1=1; 9-3=6, 6-3=3, 3-1=2, 2-1=1; 10-5=5, 5-1=4, 4-2=2, 2-1=1; 12-6=6, 6-3=3, 3-1=2, 2-1=1; 16-8=8, 8-4=4, 4-2=2, 2-1=1.
