Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

%N Numbers which are both 9-gonal (nonagonal) and 10-gonal (decagonal).

%C As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim(n->Infinity, a(n)/a(n-1)) = (2*sqrt(2)+sqrt(7))^8 = 403201+107760*sqrt(14).

%F G.f.: x*(1+406348*x+451*x^2) / ((1-x)*(1-806402*x+x^2)).

%F a(n) = 806402*a(n-1)-a(n-2)+406800.

%F a(n) = 806403*a(n-1)-806403*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

%F a(n) = 1/448*((15+2*sqrt(14))*(2*sqrt(2)+sqrt(7))^(8*n-6)+(15-2*sqrt(14))*(2*sqrt(2)-sqrt(7))^(8*n-6)-226).

%F a(n) = floor(1/448*(15+2*sqrt(14))*(2*sqrt(2)+sqrt(7))^(8*n-6)).

%e The second number that is both nonagonal and decagonal is A001106(589) = A001107(551) = 1212751. Hence a(2) = 1212751.
