FORMULA

a(n) = (15*n^2 - 15*n + 2)/2.

a(n) = 15*n+a(n-1)-15 (with a(1)=1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010

G.f.: -x*(1+13*x+x^2) / (x-1)^3. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 04 2011

Binomial transform of [1, 15, 15, 0, 0, 0, ...] and Narayana transform (A001263) of [1, 15, 0, 0, 0, ...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Jul 28 2011

a(n) = A194715(n-1) + 1. - Omar E. Pol, Oct 03 2011

EXAMPLE

a(5) = 151 because (15*5^2 - 15*5 + 2)/2 = (375 - 75 + 2)/2 = 302/2 = 151.

For n=2, a(2)=15*2+1-15=16; n=3, a(3)=15*3+16-15=46; n=4, a(4)=15*4+46-15=91. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 08 2010
