COMMENTS
a(n) = (n!)^2 * Sum_{i=0..n} (binomial(n,i)^(-2)).
Consider a triangle ABC with area p. Let points X, Y, Z be randomly and uniformly chosen on sides BC, CA, BA. Let r = area of XYZ. Then the average or expected value of (r/p)^n = a(n)/(n!^2 * (n+1)^3).
a(n) = (3*(n+1)^4 *(n!)^4 /(2n+3)!) * Sum_{i=1..n+1} ((1/i)* binomial(2i, i)), see Sprugnoli Formula 5.2 as noted by Markus Scheuer.
