Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Gennady Eremin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..500

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (20,-140,430,-579,270).

FORMULA

a(n) = 9^n - 5^n - 3^n - 2^n + 2.

G.f.: -x*(291*x^3-189*x^2+25*x+1)/((x-1)*(2*x-1)*(3*x-1)*(5*x-1)*(9*x-1)). [Colin Barker, Sep 04 2012]

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 45 because in 2D the lines have slope 0, 1/8, 3/8, 5/8, 7/8, 1/7, 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, 5/7, 6/7, 1/6, 5/6, 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 1/4, 3/4, 1/3, 2/3, 1/2, 1 and their reciprocals.
