FORMULA

a(n+1) = 4*A115004(n).

EXAMPLE

a(2)=4 because 4 (isosceles right) triangles with area 1/2 can be placed on a 2 X 2 grid.

MATHEMATICA

z[n_] := Sum[(n - i + 1)(n - j + 1) Boole[GCD[i, j] == 1], {i, n}, {j, n}];

a[n_] := 4 z[n - 1];

The following eight sequences are all essentially the same. The simplest is A115004(n), which we denote by z(n). Then A088658(n) = 4*z(n-1); A114043(n) = 2*z(n-1)+2*n^2-2*n+1; A114146(n) = 2*A114043(n); A115005(n) = z(n-1)+n*(n-1); A141255(n) = 2*z(n-1)+2*n*(n-1); A290131(n) = z(n-1)+(n-1)^2; A306302(n) = z(n)+n^2+2*n. - N.
