%N Solution (a(n)) of the system of complementary equations defined in Comments.

%C Define sequences a(n), b(n), c(n) recursively, starting with a(0) = 1:

%C a(n) = least new,

%C b(n) = least new,

%C c(n) = 2*a(n) + b(n),

%C where "least new k" means the least positive integer not yet placed. The three sequences partition the positive integers. Empirically, for all n >= 0,

%C 1 <= 3*a(n) - 7*n <= 5,

%C 5 <= 3*b(n) - 7*n <= 8,

%C 3 <= c(n) - 7*n <= 6.

%e a(0) = 1, b(0) = 2; c(0) = 2*1 + 2 = 4, so that a(1) = 3, so that b(1) = 4, so that c(1) = 11.

%t z = 300;

%t mex[list_, start_] := (NestWhile[# + 1 &, start, MemberQ[list, #] &]);

%t a = {}; b = {}; c = {};

%t Do[AppendTo[a,

%t mex[Flatten[{a, b, c}], If[Length[a] == 0, 1, Last[a]]]];

%t AppendTo[b, mex[Flatten[{a, b, c}], Last[a]]];

%t AppendTo[c, 2 Last[a] + Last[b]], {z}];

%t Take[a, 100] (* A304497 *)

%t Take[b, 100] (* A304498 *)
