FORMULA

a(n) = A180414(n)  A180414(n1).
a(n) = A051389(n) for n <= 5, a(n) > A051389(n) otherwise.


EXAMPLE

a(6) = 44 because the resistances 11/13 and 13/11 (in units of resistor value) are representable in addition to the A051389(6)=42 resistances that can be achieved by only serial and parallel configurations with exactly 6 resistors and not by a network with fewer than 6 resistors.
