%N Denominators of r-Egyptian fraction expansion for log(2), where r = (1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, ...)

%C Suppose that r is a sequence of rational numbers r(k) <= 1 for k >= 1, and that x is an irrational number in (0,1). Let f(0) = x, n(k) = floor(r(k)/f(k-1)), and f(k) = f(k-1) - r(k)/n(k). Then x = r(1)/n(1) + r(2)/n(2) + r(3)/n(3) + ..., the r-Egyptian fraction for x.

%C See A269993 for a guide to related sequences.
