A(n) = m if 1/1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + ... + 1/(m1) < n < 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + ... + 1/(m) for example A(1) = 1 A(2) = 4 1/1 + 1/2 + 1/3 < 2 < 1/1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 A(3) = 11 A(4) = 31 A(5) = 83 A(6) = 227 A(7) = 614 conjecture lim A(n+1)/A(n) = e for example A(2)/A(1) = 4 A(3)/A(2) = 2.75 A(4)/A(3) = 2.82 A(5)/A(4) = 2.68 A(6)/A(5) = 2.73 A(7)/A(6) = 2.70

Yes that's a nice insight. Youngmath do you attempt proofs for your ideas? Or do you do all this by intuition and just seeing it?

Of course I have proofs for them. I got a formula for number of twin primes less than a given number that works well up to 100000, but for larger numbers that has an error and the error gets bigger. It's proof was like my proof for pi(n).
