5-87.

Write the first five terms of of each recursively-defined sequence. Homework Help ✎

*t*(1) = −3

*t*(*n*+ 1) = −2 ·*t*(*n*)*t*(1) = 8

*t*(*n*+ 1) =*t*(*n*) − 5*t*(1) = 2

*t*(*n*+ 1) = (*t*(*n*))^{−1}

−3, 6, −12, 24, −48

Substitute 8 for *t*(*n*) in the second equation to find *t*(*n* + 1), which is *t*(2).*t*(2) = (8) − 5*t*(2) = 3

8, 3, −2, −7, −12
