FORMULA

Numerator(1/18 - 1/(3*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3))) (from the generic formula Sum_{k=1..n} 1/Pochhammer(k, m) = 1/((m-1)*(m-1)!) - 1/((m-1)*Pochhammer(n+1, m-1)) with m = 4).

G.f. for the rationals r(n) = (1/18)*n*(11+n^2+6*n)/((1+n)*(n+2)*(n+3)) = a(n)/A230340(n): (1/18)*(1 - hypergeometric([1, 3], [4], -x/(1-x)))/(1-x) = (6*x - 15*x^2 + 11*x^3 + 6*(1 - 3*x + 3*x^2 - x^3)*log(1-x))/(36*x^3*(1-x)). - Wolfdieter Lang, Mar 08 2018

a(n) = numerator(1/18 - 1/(3*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3))). - Colin Barker, Jul 30 2019

EXAMPLE

1/(1*2*3*4) + 1/(2*3*4*5) + 1/(3*4*5*6) = 19/360, so a(3) = 19.

The rationals r(n) = a(n)/A230340(n) begin: 0, 1/24, 1/20, 19/360, 17/315, 55/1008, 83/1512, 119/2160, 82/1485, 73/1320, 95/1716, 121/2184, 227/4095, 559/10080, 679/12240, 815/14688, ... - Wolfdieter Lang, Mar 08 2018
