%F From _Chai Wah Wu_, Aug 09 2016: (Start)

%F a(n) = 121*a(n-1) - 3630*a(n-2) + 32670*a(n-3) - 88209*a(n-4) + 59049*a(n-5) for n > 4.

%F G.f.: x^2*(10692*x^2 - 684*x - 24)/((x - 1)*(3*x - 1)*(9*x - 1)*(27*x - 1)*(81*x - 1)). (End)

%F a(n) = (-36+5*3^(2+n)-5*9^n-5*27^n+81^n)/120. - _Colin Barker_, Aug 10 2016
