Re: Sequence questionHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130309 14:23:30
Re: Sequence questionHi, Subtracting again, you get You could find the quadratic. However, another way is to realize that , which, after solving, gives Last edited by Stormtangent (20130309 14:25:26) "Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real?
