If I understand the question.....look at the following pattern :

 

1, 2, 4, 8, 16  = not sweet

2 ,4,8,16  = not sweet

3, 6,12, 24,(48,36,24)....the (48,36,24) repeats   = sweet

4,8,16 = not sweet

5,10,20,40,28,16 = not sweet

6, 12, 24, (48,36, 24) = sweet

7, 14, 28, 16   = not sweet

8, 16   = not sweet

9, 18, 36, 24, (48, 36, 24)  = sweet

10, 20, 40, 28, 16  =  not sweet

11, 22, 44, 32, 20, 40, 28, 16  = not sweet

12,24,(48,36,24) = sweet

 

 

It appears that the multiples of 3 will only generate  "sweet" numbers

 

There will  be     integer ( 50/3)   =    16  such "sweet" numbers from 1 - 50

 

 

cool cool cool

These types of problems are actually secretly easy... the difficult part is understanding it.
