 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Create a triangle with first column T(n,1)=A000045(n) for n=0,1,2... The remaining terms T(r,c)=T(r,c-1)+T(r-1,c-1). The sum of all terms for the first n+1 rows of this triangle=a(n+2).  The sum of the terms in row(n+1)= 0, 2, 6, 18, 50, 136, 364...with partial sums of these sums duplicating this sequence 0, 2, 8, 26, 76, 212, 576... - J.
