    Post Recursive Formula

    If t1 = 6, t2 = 4, t3 = 2 and

    <br /> <br />
t_n = (t_{n-3} + t_{n-2}) \cdot t_{n-1}<br />

    Find t7.

    Find t7.
    Its a matter of applying the recursive forumula.

    When n=4, you have

    t_4=(t_1+t_2)\cdot t_3=(6+4)\cdot 2=24

    When n=5, you have

    t_5=(t_2+t_3)\cdot t_4=(4+2)\cdot 24=144

    Can you continue on with this process?
