 A357272 a(n) is the number of ways n can be calculated with expressions of the form "d1 o1 d2 o2 d3 o3 d4" where d1-d4 are decimal digits (0-9) and o1-o3 are chosen from the four basic arithmetic operators (+, -, *, /). 2

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS This sequence is an extension of the "four fours" puzzle. Expressions follow operator precedence (*/) then (+-), and left to right within the same level of precedence: "5/6/7/8" is ((5/6)/7)/8, "3-4+5*8" is 3-4+(5*8) = (3-4)+40 = -1+40 = 39. Expressions are treated as ordered, so that 1+2+3+4 is distinct from 1+3+2+4 (but has the same value). If negative n is allowed, the first nonzero a(n) is n = -729 (0-9*9*9). The last nonzero a(n) is n = 6561 (9*9*9*9). There are 671 nonzero terms. - Michael S. Branicky, Sep 24 2022 LINKS Michael S.
