 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Extension of A210483 with negative values, and subset of A224360. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..74. EXAMPLE The 2nd row [4, 5, 7, 6] gives the number of iterations of -k/5 (the first element is not counted): k=1 => -1/5 ->2/5 -> 1/5 -> 8/5 -> 4/5 with 4 iterations; k=2 => -2/5 -> -1/5 -> 2/5 -> 1/5 -> 8/5 -> 4/5 with 5 iterations; k=3 => -3/5 -> -4/5 -> -2/5 -> -1/5 -> 2/5 -> 1/5 -> 8/5 -> 4/5 with 7 iterations; k=4 => -4/5 -> -2/5 -> -1/5 -> 2/5 -> 1/5 -> 8/5 -> 4/5 with 6 iterations. The array starts: [0]; [1, 2]; [4, 5, 7, 6]; [9, 10, 11, 11, 13, 12]; [4, 5, 1, 6, 3, 2, 4, 7]; ...
