FORMULA

From Alois P. Heinz, May 02 2012: (Start)

G.f.: (1089*x^6+10934*x^5+26015*x^4+18500*x^3+3775*x^2+166*x+1) / (x-1)^10*x^3.

a(n) = (n^9 -16*n^8 +112*n^7 -448*n^6 +1120*n^5 -1791*n^4 +1786*n^3 -1012*n^2 +248*n)/6.  (End)

MAPLE

a:= n-> (248 +(-1012 +(1786 +(-1791 +(1120 +(-448 +(112 +(-16+n)*n) *n) *n) *n) *n) *n) *n) *n/6:

seq(a(n), n=3..40);  #  Alois P. Heinz, May 02 2012
