SeqFans,

Since the name of A057290, 0, 3, 15, 42, ..., is “Numbers which are both 
the sum of n+1 consecutive integers and the sum of the n immediately 
higher consecutive integers,” would it not be more accurate to omit 0 
from the sequence?

     Alternatively, since first entry of A059270 is 0, would it not be 
more accurate for its name to be a formula like “n*(n+1)*(2*n+1)/2”?

Thanks.

Charlie
