%N Sums of three consecutive hexagonal numbers.

%C Arises in hexagonal number analog to A129803 Triangular numbers which are the sum of three consecutive triangular numbers. What are the hexagonal numbers which are the sum of three consecutive hexagonal numbers? Prime for a(0) = 7, a(4) = 139, a(6) = 277, a(8) = 463, a(18) = 2113, a(22) = 3109, a(26) = 4297, a(38) = 9013, a(40) = 9967.

%F a(n) = H(n) + H(n+1) + H(n+2) where H(n) = A000384(n) = n(2n-1). a(n) = 6*n^2 + 9*n + 7.

%F From _Colin Barker_, Feb 20 2012: (Start)

%F a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3).

%F G.f.: (7+x+4*x^2)/(1-x)^3. (End)

%e a(0) = H(0) + H(1) + H(2) = 0 + 1 + 6 = 7 = 6*0^2 + 9*0 + 7.

%e a(1) = H(1) + H(2) + H(3) = 1 + 6 + 15 = 22 = 6*1^2 + 9*1 + 7.

%e a(2) = H(2) + H(3) + H(4) = 6 + 15 + 28 = 49 = 6*2^2 + 9*2 + 7.
