Hide it,please!And let me check if it is correct.

They are all correct. The problem is they are sometime shifted.

May I ask how you derived the general formula?

Wow,you explained it to such detail! I understand it perfectly.

Joke aside,what do you mean-square root if 2?

We had this discussion in another thread. I tried to explain it then but I do not think I did. Remember the difference between a hand problem and a computer one?

Yes,I do.

I would like you to explain what that swquence has with sthat aquare root of 12.

There are methods to derive them but they are tedious and error prone.
The rule is whenever you learn a technique you immediately teach your computer
how to do it too. Then from that point on you get perfect answers at much higher speeds.
Those are all one line commands in M.

I got the answer by using GFs.

Could you maybe show me next weekend how to write a program for something like this in Maxima?

Did you write down your algorithm?

No,there is only one bobbym. Otherwise the world would crumble to pieces. So you didn't write down the algorithm yet.
