Table of n, a(n) for n=1..36.

FORMULA

a(n) = A185128(n) - A185129(n). - Michel Marcus, Jan 08 2015

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 66, since the pair of triangular numbers 171 = 18*(18+1)/2 and 105 = 14*(14+1)/2 produce the sum 276 = 23*(23+1)/2 and the difference 66 = 11*(11+1)/2 which are both triangular numbers.

PROG

(PARI) lista(nn) = {v = vector(nn, n, n*(n+1)/2); for (n=2, nn, for (k=1, n-1, if (ispolygonal(v[n]+v[k], 3) && ispolygonal(v[n]-v[k], 3), print1(v[n]-v[k], ", ")); ); ); } \\ Michel Marcus, Jan 08 2015
