How many ways are of arranging the numbers 1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3,...,n,n,n so that there are zero numbers between the first and second 1's and zero numbers between the second and third 1's; one number between the first and second 2's and one number between the second and third 2's; ... n-1 numbers between the first and second n's and n-1 numbers between the second and third n's?

EXAMPLE

From Gheorghe Coserea, Jul 14 2017: (Start)

For n=9 the a(9)=9 solutions, up to reversal of the order, are:
