COMMENTS
Define sequences aa(n), bb(n), cc(n) recursively, starting with aa(0) = 1, bb(0) = 2, cc(0) = 3:
aa(n) = least new;
bb(n) = aa(n) + cc(n-1);
cc(n) = least new;
where "least new k" means the least positive integer not yet placed.
***
The sequences aa,bb,cc partition the positive integers. It appears that cc = A047218 and that for every n >= 0,
(1) 5*n - 1 - 2*aa(n) is in {0,1,2},
(2) (aa(n) mod 5) is in {1,2,4},
(3) 5*n - 3 - bb(n) is in {0,1} for every n >= 0;
(4) (bb(n) mod 5) is in {1,2}.
From N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 05 2019: (Start)
Conjecture: For t >= 0, bb(2t) = 10t + 1 (+1 if binary expansion of t ends in an odd number of 0's), bb(2t+1) = 10t + 7.
The first part may also be written as bb(2t) = 10t + 1 + A328789(t-1).
