FORMULA
a(n) = 2*n^4 - 11*n^3 + 23*n^2 - 21*n + 7.
G.f.: x^2*(1 + 11*x + 29*x^2 + 7*x^3)/(1 - x)^5. - Stefano Spezia, Jun 04 2021
EXAMPLE
a(3) = 16 as the five connected vertices form eleven polygons inside the regular pentagon while also forming five triangles outside the pentagon, giving sixteen polygons in total.
