## Pentagonal Number

 intpentagonal_number( int n )[inline]
This function computes the pentagonal number of order n. The pentagonal number counts the number of dots in a figure of nested pentagons. The pentagonal numbers are defined for both positive and negative orders.

## Example:

```#include <codecogs/maths/combinatorics/sequences/pentagonal_number.h>
#include <iostream>
int main()
{
std::cout << "Pentagonal numbers for 0 <= n < 10" << std::endl;
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
std::cout << i << "  " << Maths::Combinatorics::Sequences::pentagonal_number(i) << std::endl;
return 0;
}```

## Output:

```Pentagonal numbers for 0 <= n < 10
0  0
1  1
2  5
3  12
4  22
5  35
6  51
7  70
8  92
9  117```
