Sorry forgot to put in the answers. Here is the answers I got:
s0 = 2
s1 = -1
s2 = 5
s3 = 4
s4 = 12
s5 = 13
Can anyone tell me if this is correct for this relation:
6.1 In the following sequences determine s5 if s0, s1, ... sn, ... is a sequence satisfying the given recurrence relation and initial condition.
b. sn = -sn-1 - n2 for n >= 1, s0 = 2
