Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so now it is not so bad replace \(n=1\) on the right hand side to get \(a_2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you get \[a_2=\frac{1^2+1}{1}\times \frac{3}{2}\] \[a_2=2\times\frac{3}{2}\] \[a_2=3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now replace \(n\) by 2 on the right hand side to get \[a_3=\frac{2^2+1}{2}\times 3\] \[a_3=\frac{5}{2}\times 3\] \[a_3=\frac{15}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1one more? \[a_4=\frac{3^2+1}{3}\times \frac{15}{2}\] \[a_4=\frac{10}{3}\times \frac{15}{2}\] \[a_4=25\]
