```If a coin and a bill of the same value cannot be used simultaneously, I get the following.

G.F.: (1+x)(1+2x^2)(1+x^3)(1+2x^4)(1+2x^8)(1+2x^16)(1+2x^32)(1+2x^64)

Subject: [seqfan] Currency puzzle

Frobenia has a currency based on the blatz, in the following denominations:

1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 8, 8, 16, 16, 32, 32, 64, 64, .

A value listed once is available only as a coin.

A value listed twice as a coin and a bill, counted as distinct denominations.

How many ways are there to make change for N blatz using distinct denominations?
