I can usually solve second order ones fine but this one has me stumped!

a(n) = 6a(n-1) - 9a(n-2) a(0) = 1 a(1) = 1

Using t^2 = 6t^(n-1) - 9t^(n-2)

I get t = 3 and only 3

When I try to plug in S(n) = 3^n and T(n) = 3^n and solve for

U(n) = bS(n) + dT^n with b3^n + d3^n and use my initial values of 1 for U(0) and for U(1) I can not find a solution for the values of b and d that meet both of these!!!!!! PLease give me a clue or two or three.....
