a[1] = 2
a[2] = 4
a[3] = 8
a[n] = a[n - 1] + a[n - 2] + a[n - 3]

ozo, also, this a[n]=a[n-1]+a[n-2]+a[n-3] gives us the n-digit numbers which can be created using only digits 5 and 9, where no three ones stand side by side. (but this does not mentioned in OEIS)

Could you explain why this sequence solves my original question? For better understanding.
