Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[a_1=3 \\ a_n=2 \cdot a_{n1} \\ \text{ replacing } n \text{ with } 2 \\ a_2=2 \cdot a_{21} \\ a_2=2 \cdot a_1 \text {since 21=1} \\ \text{ now recall } a_1=3 \\ \text{ replace } a_1 \text{ with 3 } \\ a_2=2 (3)=6 \text{, 6 is the second term }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1checking... \[a_3=2 \cdot a_{31} \\ a_3=2 \cdot a_2 \\ \text{ but remember } a_2=6 \\ a_3=2(6)=12\] your third term is right anyways we are just multiplying previous term by 2 so we started with 3 3(2)=6 6(2)=12 12(2)=24 24(2)=48 48(2)=96 yep seems great
