Re: Finding a_2012
Have you tried just calculating \$\displaystyle a_1\$, \$\displaystyle a_2\$, \$\displaystyle a_3\$, ...?

Re: Finding a_2012
I mean exactly what I said! Calculate as many of \$\displaystyle a_1\$, \$\displaystyle a_2\$, \$\displaystyle a_3\$,... as required until it dawns on you!
