a(n) = 7 for n == 8 (mod 15) (provided n != 53 (mod 105)).

a(n) = 9 for n == 53 (mod 105). - Jon E. Schoenfield, Mar 14 2014

EXAMPLE
1*2/(1+2) = 2/3 is not an integer. 1*2*3/(1+2+3) = 1 is an integer. Thus a(1) = 3.
2*3/(2+3) = 6/5 is not an integer. 2*3*4/(2+3+4) = 24/9 is not an integer. 2*3*4*5/(2+3+4+5) = 120/14 is not an integer. 2*3*4*5*6/(2+3+4+5+6) = 720/20 = 36 is an integer. Thus a(2) = 5.
