%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A250374/b250374.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = (7/2)*n^6 + 14*n^5 + (105/4)*n^4 + (161/6)*n^3 + (63/4)*n^2 + (17/3)*n + 1.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Nov 13 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: x*(93 + 731*x + 1243*x^2 + 404*x^3 + 55*x^4 - 7*x^5 + x^6) / (1 - x)^7.

%F a(n) = 7*a(n-1) - 21*a(n-2) + 35*a(n-3) - 35*a(n-4) + 21*a(n-5) - 7*a(n-6) + a(n-7) for n>7.
