%C Row 5 of A199898.

%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A199900/b199900.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..200</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = (11/12)*n^4 + (49/6)*n^3 + (193/12)*n^2 + (41/6)*n + 1.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, May 16 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: x*(33 - 6*x - 4*x^2 - 2*x^3 + x^4) / (1 - x)^5.

%F a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n>5.
