Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

FORMULA

a(n) = 1/4*(n^4+14n^3+69n^2+136n+80). G.f.: (20-25x+14x^2-3x^3)/(1-x)^5. - Ralf Stephan, Apr 23 2004

a(n) = binomial(n+4,2)^2 - binomial(n+4,1)^2. - Gary Detlefs, Nov 22 2011

Using two consecutive triangular numbers t(n) and t(n+1), starting at n=3, compute the determinant of a 2 X 2 matrix with the first row t(n), t(n+1) and the second row t(n+1), 2*t(n+1). This gives (n+1)^2*(n-2)*(n+2)/4 = a(n-3). - J. M. Bergot, May 17 2012
