%N Number of subsets of {1..n} that contain three odd numbers.

%C 2*a(n-1) for n > 1 is the number of subsets of {1..n} that contain three even numbers. For example, for n=6, 2*a(5)=8 and the 8 subsets are {2,4,6}, {1,2,4,6}, {2,3,4,6}, {2,4,5,6}, {1,2,3,4,6}, {1,2,4,5,6}, {2,3,4,5,6}, {1,2,3,4,5,6}.

%F a(n) = binomial(n/2,3) * 2^(n/2), n even.

%F From _Colin Barker_, Jan 17 2020: (Start)

%F G.f.: 4*x^5*(1 + 2*x) / (1 - 2*x^2)^4.

%F a(n) = 8*a(n-2) - 24*a(n-4) + 32*a(n-6) - 16*a(n-8) for n>8.

%F (End)

%e For n = 6, a(6) = 8 and the 8 subsets are {1,3,5}, {1,2,3,5}, {1,3,4,5}, {1,3,5,6}, {1,2,3,4,5}, {1,2,3,5,6}, {1,3,4,5,6}, {1,2,3,4,5,6}.
