COMMENTS

Numerators of the sequence of fractions f(n) is A165425(n+1), hence sum(A165425(i+1)/a(i),i=1..n) = product(A165425(i+1)/a(i),i=1..n) = A165425(n+2)/A225166(n).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..8.

FORMULA

a(n) = 7^(2^(n-2)) - product(a(i),i=1..n-1), n > 1 and a(1) = 1.

a(n) = 7^(2^(n-2)) - p(n) with a(1) = 1 and p(n) = p(n-1)*a(n-1) with p(1) = 1.

EXAMPLE

f(n) = 7, 7/6, 49/43, 2401/2143, ...

7 + 7/6 = 7 * 7/6 = 49/6; 7 + 7/6 + 49/43 = 7 * 7/6 * 49/43 = 2401/258; ...

MAPLE

b:=n->7^(2^(n-2)); # n > 1

b(1):=7;

p:=proc(n) option remember; p(n-1)*a(n-1); end;

p(1):=1;

a:=proc(n) option remember; b(n)-p(n); end;

a(1):=1;

seq(a(i), i=1..9);
