 A086836 On a 3 X 3 board, number of distinct positions of n digits (modulo rotation/reflection)). 0
 3, 12, 66, 378, 1890, 7560, 22680, 45360, 45360 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Sequence is finite by definition. Last two numbers are naturally 8 times less than 9!, the total number of 3 X 3 squares (not taking into account symmetries). LINKS FORMULA a(n) = 1/8*([9]_n+4*[3]_n+3*[1]_n) = 3/8*(967680-1145424*n+705596*n^2-256796*n^3+59649*n^4-8936*n^5+834*n^6-44*n^7+n^8)/GAMMA(10-n), where [m]_n=m*(m-1)*...*(m-n+1) is falling factorial. - Vladeta Jovovic, Aug 10 2003 EXAMPLE a(1)=3 because there are 3 distinct (corner, side or central ) cells which can be occupied by 1 digit CROSSREFS Cf.
