Solve the recurrence relations for these two questions I just posted this http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...-sequence.html - it might help. Added note. In the case of repeated roots of the characteristic equation, solutions are of the form

Yeah I thought it might have had something to do with using the general form, but im not 100 percent sure where or how to use it.!

Substitute into gives or which gives or so So, the general solution to the difference equation is Now the initial condition Two equations for . SOlving gives leading to the solution
