you are given the first two terms in the sequence -5,20,... so you can definitely eliminate one of those choices anyways to find the third replace n with 2

replacing n with 2

then using that f(0)=-5 and f(1)=20 to find f(2) (which is the third term)

I eliminated A and C. So I am left with B or D.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm not sure what the third term is.
freckles
  • freckles
it is f(2)
freckles
  • freckles
since f(0) is first term and f(1) is second so f(2) is the third

that is why I'm asking you to replace n with 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh okay.

Don't if I plug in the -5 and the 20 into the term won't I get -65? That is what I got at first but I'm not sure if that is right?

\[f(n) = -4•f(n -1) - 3•f(n - 2) \\ f(2)=-4 \cdot f(2-1)-3 \cdot f(2-2) \\ f(2)=-4 \cdot f(1)-3 \cdot f(0)\] remember f(1) is 20 and f(0) is -5 so you have \[f(2)=-4 \cdot 20-3 \cdot (-5)\] and yes -80+15=-65

oh okay, so that would mean if I continued with the process I would ghet 200 next right?
freckles
  • freckles
if you don't get 200 then none of the choices are correct :p
anonymous
  • anonymous
I did get 200, so it is D. Thanks so much! Can you help me with a few more?
