FORMULA

Position of 1/2^n: n + floor(n log(2)/log(3)) + floor((n + 1) log(2)/log(3))

Position of 1/3^n: 2n - 2 + floor(n log(3)/log(2))

Position of 2/3^n: 2n + floor(n log(3)/log(2))

EXAMPLE

In the decreasing sequence 2/3, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/9, 1/8, 1/9, 2/27, 1/16, ..., the positions of 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/6, are 2,4,6,9; the positions of 1/3, 1/9, 1/27,... are 3,7,10,14,...; the positions of 2/3, 2/9,2/27,... are 1,5,8,12,...

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := n + Floor[n Log[2]/Log[3]] + Floor[(n + 1) Log[2]/Log[3]];

b[n_] := 2 n - 2 + Floor[n Log[3]/Log[2]];

c[n_] := 2 n + Floor[n Log[3]/Log[2]];

Table[a[n], {n, 1, 120}] (* A322532 *)
