FORMULA

a(n) = round((7*7^n-24*n-16)/54).

a(n) = floor((7*7^n-24*n-7)/54).

a(n) = ceil((7*7^n-24*n-25)/54).

a(n) = round((7*7^n-24*n-7)/54).

a(n) = a(n-3)+(19*7^(n-2)-4)/3 , n>3.

a(n) = 8*a(n-1)-7*a(n-2)+a(n-3)-8*a(n-4)+7*a(n-5), n>5.

G.f.: -x^2*(5+3*x) / ( (7*x-1)*(1+x+x^2)*(x-1)^2 ).

EXAMPLE

a(4)=0+5+38+266=309.
