(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A219241 Distribution of letters in the name of the days of the week (English). 1
8, 0, 0, 8, 3, 1, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 3, 1, 0, 0, 3, 5, 3, 4, 0, 1, 0, 7, 0 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Each of the 26 letters of the (English) alphabet, encoded as a->1, b->2, ... , z->26, appears a(n) times in the string of all the (English) names of the days of the week. The letters are taken case insensitive.


Table of n, a(n) for n=1..26.


a(n) = number of times the letter with standard code n (for the code see a comment above), appears in all the seven English names for the days of the week.


a(1) = 8 because the letter a (or 'A'), encoded as 1, appears 8 times in the names of the seven days, namely 7 times in '...day' and once in 'Satur...'. Similarly for the letter 'd' with a(4) = 8, which appears, besides 7 times in '...day', once in 'Wednes...'.

The letter 'y' appears a(25) = 7 times in '...day'.

There is no letter 'b' (or 'B') in the names of the days, hence a(2)=0.


Cf. A049005.
