 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS The largest even integer which cannot be written as the sum of 2n composite odd integers, for n >= 1, is 18*n+20, proved by the Shippensburg University Mathematical Problem Solving Group (see Links). LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..55. Ronald E. Ruemmler, Problem 1328, Mathematics Magazine, Vol. 62, No. 4 (October 1989), p. 274; Sums of Composite Odd Numbers, Solution to problem 1328 by Garrett R. Vargas, ibid., Vol. 63, No. 4 (October 1990), pp. 276-277. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1). FORMULA a(n) = 18*n + 20.
