FORMULA

A118411(n)/A118412(n) = SUM[i=1..n] (1/A000332(n)). A118411(n)/A118412(n) = SUM[i=1..n] (1/C(n+2,4)). A118411(n)/A118412(n) = SUM[i=1..n] (1/(n*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3)/24)).

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 1 = numerator of 1/1.

a(2) = 6 = numerator of 6/5 = 1/1 + 1/5.

a(3) = 19 = numerator of 19/15 = 1/1 + 1/5 + 1/15.

a(4) = 136 = numerator of 136/105 = 1/1 + 1/5 + 1/15 + 1/35.

a(5) = 55 = numerator of 55/42 = 1/1 + 1/5 + 1/15 + 1/35 + 1/70.

a(10) = 190 = numerator of 190/143 = 1/1 + 1/5 + 1/15 + 1/35 + 1/70 + 1/126 + 1/210 + 1/330 + 1/495 + 1/715.

a(20) = 2360 = numerator of 2360/1771 = 1/1 + 1/5 + 1/15 + 1/35 + 1/70 + 1/126 + 1/210 + 1/330 + 1/495 + 1/715 + 1/1001 + 1/1365 + 1/1820 + 1/2380 + 1/3060 + 1/3876 + 1/4845 + 1/5985 + 1/7315 + 1/8855.
