Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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.
