Table of n, a(n) for n=1..20.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{d|n} phi(d)*6^(n/d)/(2*n);

a(n) = 6^((n+1)/2)/2 for n odd,

       (7/4)*6^(n/2) for n even.

G.f.: (1 - Sum_{n>=1} phi(n)*log(1 - 6*x^n)/n + (1+6*x+15*x^2)/(1-6*x^2))/2. - Herbert Kociemba, Nov 02 2016

EXAMPLE

For n=2, the 21 bracelets are AA, AB, AC, AD, AE, AF, BB, BC, BD, BE, BF, CC, CD, CE, CF, DD, DE, DF, EE, EF, and FF. - Robert A. Russell, Sep 24 2018
