FORMULA

a(n) = 6*A077289(n).

G.f.: -6*x*(x^2+5*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-10*x+1)*(x^2+10*x+1)). - Colin Barker, Jul 02 2013

a(n) = 98*a(n-2) - a(n-1) + 42. - Vladimir Pletser, Feb 20 2021

EXAMPLE

The k-th triangular number is T(k) = k*(k+1)/2, so T(35)/T(14) = (35*36/2)/(14*15/2) = 630/105 = 6, so T(35)=630 is a term. - Jon E. Schoenfield, Feb 20 2021

MAPLE

f := gfun:-rectoproc({a(-2) = 6, a(-1) = 0, a(0) = 0, a(1) = 6, a(n) = 98*a(n-2)-a(n-4)+42}, a(n), remember); map(f, [`$`(0 .. 1000)])[]; # Vladimir Pletser, Feb 20 2021
