Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's first calculate f(2). We use this formula: f(n) = f(n  1)  8; n > 1 In this formula we substitute n to 2, then we have f(2) = f(2  1)  8 = f(1) 8 Now since we know f(1) = 2, this gives us f(2) = 4  8 = 4 Do you understand how I computed f(2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, that's the correct answer. You can further check by calculating f(3) and f(4). They will be 12 and 20 respectively.
