    do you want the whole steps or just a result? the final result is an = -7 *6^n

    a(n+1) -6 a(n) =0 characteristic equation is x -6 =0 x =6 the equation has the form an= C*6^n replace a1 = C *6^1 = -42 ---->C = -7 replace C into an form to get an= -7 *6^n Hope this help. are you in discrete math course?If so, you will understand what i mean

    I think we can do this using the geometric sequence formula.

    \(a_1 = -42\) and \(r = -6\). Now use the following formula:\[a_n = a_1 \times r^{n - 1}\]

    how to get r?

    Strictly speaking, if you have:\[a_{n + 1} = {\rm some ~number} \times a_n \]For all \(n\), then the "some number" is the common ratio denoted by \(r\).

    my problem is: find the coefficient of x^10 in the power series of (x^2 +x^4 +....) (x^3 +x^6 +x^9 +....)(x^4 +x^8 +x^12 +....)
