Row 2 of A219939.
FORMULA
Empirical: a(n) = (1/15)*n^5 - (3/4)*n^4 + (32/3)*n^3 - (135/4)*n^2 + (1583/30)*n - 34 for n>2.
Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jul 29 2018: (Start)
G.f.: x*(10 - 37*x + 76*x^2 - 43*x^3 - 67*x^4 + 109*x^5 - 51*x^6 + 11*x^7) / (1 - x)^6.
a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 15*a(n-2) + 20*a(n-3) - 15*a(n-4) + 6*a(n-5) - a(n-6) for n>8.
