Number of ordered ways to write n as x^2*pen(x) + pen(y) + pen(z) with pen(x) = x*(3x+1)/2 and pen(y) <= pen(z), where x, y and z are integers ("pen" stands for "pentagonal").

COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) Any natural number can be written as a*x^2*pen(x) + b*pen(y) + c*pen(z) with x, y and z integers, provided that (a,b,c) is among the following ordered triples: (j,1,k) (j = 1,2; k = 1,2,3,4), (1,2,3), (3,1,4) and (4,1,3).
(ii) Every n = 0,1,2,... can be expressed as x^2*pen(x) + T(y) + T(z) with x, y and z integers, where T(m) denotes the triangular number m*(m+1)/2. Also, for each (a,b) = (1,2),(1,4),(2,2), any natural number can be written as a*x^2*T(x) + b*T(y) + T(z) with x, y and z integers.
(iii) Each natural number can be written as x^2*P(x) + pen(y) + pen(z) with x, y and z integers, where P(x) is either of the following polynomials: a*T(x) (a = 1,2,3,4,5), x*(5x+3)/2, x*(3x+1), x*(3x+2), x*(7x+1)/2, x*(4x+1), x*(4x+3), x*(9x+5)/2, x*(5x+3), x*(11x+9)/2, x*(13x+5)/2, x*(17x+9)/2, 3x*(3x+2), x*(11x+2).

EXAMPLE

a(88) = 1 since 88 = 1^2*pen(1) + pen(5) + pen(6).
