For the recursively defined sequence:
List the first five terms of the sequence.
Start by finding the second term in the sequence. Don't forget that the first term of the sequence is 5!
a2 = −2 · a2−1
a2 = −2 · a1
a2 = −2 · 5
a2 = −10
Repeat the above process for the next three terms of the sequence.
Write an explicit equation for the sequence.
What is the zeroth term?
What is the multiplier?
