# erdos decrepency conjecture

## Question

heres an alternate version that i came up with,

place the digits 1-n where n is 4 such that no consecutive digit of any step value, starting at step value, repeats.

here's an example where n is 2.

0 1 0 2 1 0 2 1 2   0   1   ?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12

here starting from 1 and going a step of 1, there are no repeats. starting from 2 and going a step of 2, no repeats, and so on. However there is no way to get 12 without repeating.

I think the example in the OP has a mistake in it?

Anyways, here's a length 120 sequence.
