0) 1
1) n(n+1)
2) binomial coefficients C(n, 4) ×2^ 3
3) binomial coefficients C(n, 6) ×2^ 5
4) binomial coefficients C(n, 8) ×2^ 7
5) binomial coefficients C(n,10) ×2^ 9
6) binomial coefficients C(n,12) ×2^11
...
N) binomial coefficients C(n,2N) ×2^(2N1)
[The nth term for each sequence of binomial coefficient C(n, x) as it relates to the polynomial begins with 1 for the Nth coefficient of each polynomial].
