COMMENTS

The shapes can be constructed using compass and straightedge. a(n) identical circles must be drawn to create a truncated triangle whose shortest side is n radius lengths. See illustrations of the initial terms in the links.

FORMULA

a(n) = (13*n^2 + 9*n + 2)/2.

a(n) = A000217(4*n+1) - 3*A000217(n). - Andrew Howroyd, Apr 01 2021

G.f.: (1 + 9*x + 3*x^2)/(1 - x)^3. - Stefano Spezia, Apr 01 2021
