Please help, will medal! Give a recursive definition for the set Y of all positive multiples of 5. That is, Y = {5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, ... }. Your definition should have a base case and a recursive part. 5 is in Y. If y is in Y, so is ___ .

    multiple of what? your prof ask you start from n = 0 or n =1?, mine always start from n =0

    from that , I guess, you start at n =1

    \[a_1 = 5\] \[a_2 = 10 = 5 + 1*5 = a_1 + (2-1)1*5 =a_1 +1*5\] \[a_3= 15 = 5 + 2*5 = a_1 + (3-1)*5 = a_1 + 2*5\] ................................. \[a_n= 5 + ( n-1)*5\] so the base case is 5 the recursive part is (n-1)*5 or 5(n-1) that's all I know,
