Still getting ahead of yourself but that is correct. The recurrence is the meat of this problem and the
thing you go to first. This will all hopefully be clearer when the bafflers thread is not so baffling.

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.

Let me see.

Do you mean the discussion about your programming and Base 3 or about the problem you posed?

### Re: Find the general term!!!

Of course there is. But you cannot make me do it experimenrally. I would have to agree with that.

But what do you have in mind? How is the discussion in the other thread related to this?
