Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A188529 Numbers which contain only the digit 3 in their base-4 representation, with at most one exception. If the exception is the most-significant digit, it must be the digit 1 or 2, otherwise the exception must be the digit 2. 6

EXAMPLE

(767)_10 = (23333)_4 contains only digits 3, with the exception the leading digit which is 2. Therefore 767 is in the sequence.

(4091)_10 = (333323)_4 contains only digits 3, with the exception a digit 2.
