Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n. In other words, any nonnegative integer can be expressed as the sum of two hexagonal numbers and two second hexagonal numbers.

(ii) Each nonnegative integer can be written as the sum of two pentagonal numbers and two second pentagonal numbers.

We have verified parts (i) and (ii) of the conjecture for n up to 10^7 and 10^6 respectively.

EXAMPLE

a(23) = 1 since 23 = 1*(2*1-1) + 1*(2*1-1) + 0*(2*0+1) + 3*(2*3+1).

a(68) = 1 since 68 = 1*(2*1-1) + 4*(2*4-1) + 1*(2*1+1) + 4*(2*4+1).
