May we find the common term for recursive sequence? if yes that how to find the common term of recursive sequence such: 1 2 1 3 1 2 1 4 1 2 1 3 1 2 1 5 1 2 1 3 1 2 1 4 1 2 1 3 1 2 1 6 ...

  • in a pyramidal form:

                              4
                      3                3
                  2        2       2       2
                1   1    1   1   1   1   1   1

    $\begingroup$ It seems that the $n$-th term of your sequence is the largest $k$ such that $2^{k-1}$ divides $n$. $\endgroup$ – Andreas Blass Jul 29 '15 at 15:46
