    Question Solving recurrance relation using any technique

    Can anyone solve this recurrance relation ASAP, em desparate for solutions...

    1. An = A^(3) n - 1 A^(2) n - 2 if A0 = 0 and A1 = 2.

    Something is off here. Taking what you typed literally this reads
    A_n = (A_n)^3 - (A_n)^2 - 2
    which is not a recurrence.

    Did you mean A_n = (A_{n - 1})^3 \cdot (A_{n - 2})^2?

    The trouble is there that with A_0 = 0 the entire sequence is 0.
