Think of 3 rules, such that they generate 2,3,6 as the first 3 terms of a sequence.

    1/2 3/2 -4 i came up with this one:\[\frac{1}{2}\left(\frac{n-1.5}{|n-1.5|}+\frac{3n-7.5}{|n-2.5|}-\frac{8n-280}{|n-3.5|}\right)\]

    i was also considering coming up with something such that:\[\int_{0}^{n}f(x)dx=2,3,6~for~n=1,2,3\]

    if i could determine the slopes in that figure, i could integrate the function to get what im thinking of :)

    |dw:1346160036988:dw| at a, A=2, at (b-a)/2, A=0 so there has to be a sweet spot between a and the midpoint that satisfies my quandry

    if b= 3/4; and a = 1/4 \[\frac{4}{3/4}x=\frac{16}{3}x; \int\to\ \frac83 \left((\frac34)^2-(\frac14)^2\right)\]\[\frac83 \left(\frac{9-1}{16}\right)=1\frac13\] so its between 1/4 and 1/2 :)

    2,3,6 is my goal; and i wonder if alternating signs, and doubling would give me my needed slopes, making the next one 12 12x-2; 6x^2-2x = 4, not 3 it was a nice guess

    Why is interesting? I do not know. Here is my simple contribution. \[ a_1=2\\ a_2=3\\ a_n=a_{n-1}a_{n-2},\quad n>2 \] \[ a_1=2\\ a_2=3\\ a_n=a_{n-1}+a_{n-2}+1,\quad n>2 \] \[ a_1=2\\ a_2=3\\ a_n=a_{n-1}-a_{n-2}+5,\quad n>2 \]

    Here are two more. You can have infinite such rules. \[ a_1=2\\ a_2=3\\ a_n=2 a_{n-1} ,\quad n>2 \] \[ a_1=2\\ a_2=3\\ a_n=3 a_{n-2} ,\quad n>2 \]

    \[a_n=\Pi (n)-\Gamma (n) +2\] \(\Pi (n)=n!\) and \(\Gamma (n) =(n-1)!\) but it just looks so much cooler that way.
