%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A219708/b219708.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = (1/40320)*n^8 + (1/2016)*n^7 + (7/2880)*n^6 + (5/144)*n^5 + (167/5760)*n^4 + (259/288)*n^3 + (4723/10080)*n^2 - (73/168)*n + 3.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Jul 27 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: x*(4 - 23*x + 71*x^2 - 135*x^3 + 173*x^4 - 147*x^5 + 79*x^6 - 24*x^7 + 3*x^8) / (1 - x)^9.

%F a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 36*a(n-2) + 84*a(n-3) - 126*a(n-4) + 126*a(n-5) - 84*a(n-6) + 36*a(n-7) - 9*a(n-8) + a(n-9) for n>9.
