 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS This sequence answers the question: "How many sellers can each be provided with a distinct set of n-part 'feasible' weights described in A254296?" It counts all the n-part "feasible" partitions of all the natural numbers from (3^(n-1)+1)/2 to (3^n-1)/2. Here n resembles m in A254296. LINKS Md Towhidul Islam & Md Shahidul Islam, Number of Partitions of an n-kilogram Stone into Minimum Number of Weights to Weigh All Integral Weights from 1 to n kg(s) on a Two-pan Balance, arXiv:1502.07730 [math.CO], 2015. FORMULA a(n) = Sum_{p=(3^(n-1)+1)/2..(3^n-1)/2} A254296(p). EXAMPLE For n=2, we count 2nd through 4th values of A254296. So a(2)=1+1+1=3. For n=3, we count 5th through 13th values from A254296. So a(3)= 2+2+3+2+2+2+1+1+1 = 16. For n=4, a(4)= Sum of 14th through 40th terms of A254296, that is, 183.
