It's not in the online encyclopedic integer sequences, so you will have to think a bit, then again, it's not quite challenging :)
 2021-01-12, 23:14 #2 TrojH   Jan 2021 1 Posts Hello. Newbie here. Looks pretty easy to me: (5-1)^2=16 (5+16-2)^2=361 (5+16+361-3)^2=143641 The (n+1)st term is the sum of the first n terms, minus n, all squared. Done. Actually, I'm guessing this wasn't what you had in mind at all. :-P I'm posting this mostly in the hope that you will spoil at this point, since you apparently have stumped everyone for a couple of months now. :-)
