Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..300

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1443,-1443,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 5*((7-2*sqrt(10))*(721+228*sqrt(10))^(-n) + (7+2*sqrt(10))*(721+228*sqrt(10))^n - 14)/192.

a(n) = 1443*a(n-1) - 1443*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>3.

G.f.: 25*x*(20 + x) / ((1 - x)*(1 - 1442*x + x^2)).

EXAMPLE

500 is in the sequence because 2*500+1 = 1001 and 5*500+1 = 2501 are both pentagonal numbers.
