Hey Everyone,

Just so you know I am in an Intro to Discrete Math class so this stuff should be pretty simple to the rest of you, but I'm not very good at it. This is an example question that is up to me if i want to do it or not, the professor does not care. Any help would be appreciated.

Given that $\displaystyle A_n=5n+3$ for any $\displaystyle n>=1$, is it true that $\displaystyle A_n=5*A_{(n-1)} -3$?
