Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea, but me him decide to eliminate the worst possible answers and we got rid of A and B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so your left with C and D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, f(0) = 3 , first term = 3 f(1) = 6, 2nd term = 6 so, as of now our sequence is 3,6 to find nect term, we will use f(n) = 2•f(n 1)  f(n  2) put n= 2 here, what do u get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you just replace "n" by "2" there, to get f(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1f(2) = 2 f(1)  f(0) and you already know f(1) =6, f(0) = 3 just plug in values!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you need to find f(3) too! f(3) =  2f(2)  f(1) =  2(9) 6 = 186 = 12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its the only one close to matching what me and my teacher got but to sure try to find other possible solutions
