 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS This sequence takes into account the numbers written as words; for example, "fifty-seven" contains three vowels, so 3 is added to 57 to create the next term. The word "and" is not included in US English (cf. A158352), so 115 is written as "one hundred fifteen". This sequence is puzzling as it shares its first 6 terms with the odd numbers before jumping to 14, then 18. When only given the first 8 terms it can be very difficult to spot the rule. Assumes "y" in e.g. "fifty" is not a vowel. - Chai Wah Wu, Dec 17 2018 LINKS FORMULA a(n) = A139282(n) for n >= 2. - Chai Wah Wu, Dec 17 2018 MATHEMATICA vowelCount[n_] := StringCount[IntegerName[n, "Words"], {"a", "e", "i", "o", "u"}]; f[n_] := n + vowelCount[n]; NestList[f, 1, 100] (* Amiram Eldar, Dec 10 2018 *) PROG (Python 3.3) from itertools import accumulate, repeat from num2words import num2words A321676_list = list(accumulate(repeat(1, 100), lambda x, _ : x+sum(num2words(x).count(d) for d in 'aeiou'))) # Chai Wah Wu, Dec 17 2018 CROSSREFS Cf.
