2. How many odd Brazilian numbers are there below 100?

Instead of searching for a specific OEIS sequence, search for the word "Brazilian".

This finds many relevant sequences, including
A220570  Numbers that are not Brazilian.
This list starts with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 11, 17, 19, 23, 25, 29, 37, 41, 47, 49, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 79, 83, 89, 97.

There are 23 odd numbers below 100 that are not Brazilian, so there are 27 odd Brazilians below 100.

According to
A257521  Odd Brazilian numbers.
they are 7, 13, 15, 21, 27, 31, 33, 35, 39, 43, 45, 51, 55, 57, 63, 65, 69, 73, 75, 77, 81, 85, 87, 91, 93, 95, 99

I take no credit for this solution, since all I did was look it up and count
