C program to find Decagonal Number
A decagonal number is a figurate number that extends the concept of triangular and square numbers to the decagon (a ten-sided polygon). The nth decagonal numbers counts the number of dots in a pattern of n nested decagons, all sharing a common corner, where the ith decagon in the pattern has sides made of i dots spaced one unit apart from each other. The n-th decagonal number is given by the formula D(n)=4n2-3n;
The first few decagonal numbers are:
0, 1, 10, 27, 52, 85, 126, 175, 232, 297, 370, 451, 540, 637, 742, 855, 976, 1105, 1242……
Input : n = 2 Output : 10 Input : n = 5 Output : 85 Input : n = 7 Output: 175
Decagonal Number is = 370
