You are given a number n, the task is to find nth octagonal number. Also, find the Octagonal series till n.
An octagonal number is the figure number that represent octagonal. Octagonal numbers can be formed by placing triangular numbers on the four sides of a square. Octagonal number is calculated by using the formula (3n2 – 2n)
Examples :

```Input : 5
Output : 65

Input : 10
Output : 280

Input : 15
Output : 645```

`10th octagonal number : 280`

#### Given number n, find the octagonal series till n.

We can also find the octagonal series. Octagonal series contains the points on octagonal.

`Octagonal series 1, 8, 21, 40, 65, 96, 133, 176, 225, 280, . . .`
