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.

FORMULA

a(2*i) = 2 sum_{j=0}^{i-1}5^j =  string "2"^i read in base 5.

a(2*i+1) = 5^i +  2 sum_{j=0}^{i-1}5^j = string "1"*"2"^i read in base 5.

a(n) <= A218554(n). - Jason Kimberley, Dec 21 2012

a(n) = a(n-1)+5*a(n-2)-5*a(n-3). G.f.: -x^3*(10*x^2-5*x-7) / ((x-1)*(5*x^2-1)). - Colin Barker, Feb 01 2013

From Colin Barker, Nov 25 2016: (Start)

a(n) = (5^(n/2) - 1)/2 for n>2 and even.

a(n) = (3*5^((n-1)/2) - 1)/2 for n>2 and odd.
