COMMENTS

a(n+1) is, for n >= 0, also the numerator of the partial sums of the reciprocals of twice the pentagonal numbers {A049450(k+1)}_{k>=0} with the denominators given in A294513(n) (assuming that A250327(n+1)/(n+1) = A294513(n)/2). - Wolfdieter Lang, Nov 02 2017

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 77 because the pentagonal numbers A000326(n), for n = 1,2,3 are 1, 5, 12 and 3/(1/1+1/5+1/12) = 180/77.
