6-112.

For the recursively defined sequence: Homework Help ✎

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!

*a*_{2}= −2 ·*a*_{2−1}*a*_{2}= −2 ·*a*_{1}*a*_{2}= −2 · 5*a*_{2}= −10Repeat 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?
