COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of partitions of n into parts 1, 5, and 10.  Joerg Arndt, Feb 02 2017
From Gerhard Kirchner, Jan 25 2017: (Start)
There is a simple recurrence for solving such problems given coin values 1 = c(1) < c(2) < ... < c(k).
Let f(n, j), 1 < j <= k, be the number of ways of making change for n cents with coin values c(i), 1 <= i <= j. Then any number m of c(j)coins with 0 <= m <= floor(n/c(j)) can be used, and the remaining amount of change to be made using coins of values smaller than c(j) will be n  m*c(j) cents. This leads directly to the recurrence formula with a(n) = f(n, k).
For k = 3 with c(1) = 1, c(2) = 5, c(3) = 10, the recurrence can be reduced to an explicit formula; see link "Derivation of formulas".
By the way, a(n) is also the number of ways of making change for n cents using coins of 2, 5, 10 cents and at most one 1cent coin. That is because any coin combination is, as in the original problem, fixed by the numbers of 5cent and 10cent coins.

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/((1x)*(1x^5)*(1x^10)).
From Gerhard Kirchner, Jan 25 2017: (Start)
General recurrence: f(n, 1) = 1; j > 1: f(0, j) = 1 or
f(n, j) = Sum_{m=0..floor(n/c(j))} f(nm*c(j), j1);
a(n) = f(n, k).
Note: f(n, j) = f(n, j1) for n < c(j) => f(1, j) = 1.
Explicit formula:
a(n) = (q+1)*(q+1+s) with q = floor(n/10) and s = floor((n mod 10)/5).
(End)


EXAMPLE

From Gerhard Kirchner, Jan 25 2017: (Start)
Recurrence:
a(11) = f(11, 3) = f(11  0, 2) + f(11  10, 2)
= f(11  0, 1) + f(11  5, 1) + f(11  10, 1) + f(1, 2)
= 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4.
Explicitly: a(79) = (7 + 1)*(7 + 1 + 1) = 72.
(End)
