Integer Sequences, Vol. 14 (2011), Article 11.9.1. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (8,-6,-8,7). FORMULA 6*a(n) = round((7*7^n - 24*n - 16)/48). 6*a(n) = floor((7*7^n - 24*n - 7)/48). 6*a(n) = ceiling((7*7^n - 24*n - 25)/48). 6*a(n) = round((7*7^n - 24*n - 7)/48). a(n) = a(n-2) + (7^(n-1) - 1)/6, n > 2. a(n) = 8*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) - 8*a(n-3) + 7*a(n-4), n > 4.
