A060852 Sum of number of pips on dice in shape of Platonic solids. 3
10, 21, 36, 78, 210 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
OFFSET

1,1

COMMENTS

This is obviously a finite sequence, since there are only five Platonic solids.

LINKS

EXAMPLE

The third number in the sequence is 36 because the third Platonic solid has eight faces and the pips on an eight-faced die add up to 36 [by sum_1^n(n) = 1/2 * n * (n+1), so 1/2 * 8 * 9 = 36 for n = 8].

MATHEMATICA

# (# + 1)/2 & /@ {4, 6, 8, 12, 20} (* Robert G. Wilson v, Apr 18 2008 *)
