COMMENTS

The printed reference given shows in a table on p. 10 that Volume is "2.18170a^3" (a is edge). Both PARI (see Example here) and a handheld calculator show that 2.18169 is correct for a 5-decimal-place approximation.

FORMULA

a(n) = round(n^3 * (3+sqrt(5)) * 5/12).

EXAMPLE

a(6)=471 because round(6^3*(3 + sqrt(5))*5/12) = round(216*2.181694990...) = round(471.24...) = 471.
