COMMENTS
Define sequences a(n), b(n), c(n) recursively, starting with a(0) = 1, b(0) = 2:
a(n) = least new;
b(n) = least new > = a(n) + n + 1;
c(n) = a(n) + b(n);
where "least new k" means the least positive integer not yet placed.
***
The sequences a,b,c partition the positive integers.

Let x = be the greatest solution of 1/x + 1/(x+1) + 1/(2x+1) = 1. Then
x = 1/3 + (2/3)*sqrt(7)*cos((1/3)*arctan((3*sqrt(111))/67))
x = 2.07816258732933084676..., and a(n)/n - > x, b(n)/n -> x+1, and c(n)/n - > 2x+1.
(The same limits occur in A298868 and A297469.)
