%N Alternating sum of centered 25-gonal numbers.

%C The absolute value alternating sum of centered k-gonal numbers gives concentric k-gonal numbers.

%C More generally, the ordinary generating function for the alternating sum of centered k-gonal numbers is (1 - (k - 2)*x + x^2)/((1 - x)*(1 + x)^3).
