FORMULA
a(n) = -(7/8)+3^n*(2*n^2-(9/4)*n-10)+3^(2*n)*(4*n^2-(41/4)*n+(87/8)).
G.f.: x*(243*x^4+3807*x^3-369*x^2-87*x-10) / ((x-1)*(3*x-1)^3*(9*x-1)^3). [Colin Barker, Jan 01 2013]
MAPLE
a := proc (n) options operator, arrow: -7/8+3^n*(2*n^2-(9/4)*n-10)+3^(2*n)*(4*n^2-(41/4)*n+87/8) end proc: seq(a(n), n = 1 .. 18);
