The following function defines a recursive sequence:


f(0) = -2

f(1) = 8

f(n) = -4•f(n -1) - 3•f(n - 2); for n > 1

what sequence is defined by this recursive function?

  f(2) =  -4 x f(1) -3 x f(0)

     =   -4 x 8  -3 x -2

    = -32 +6

     = -26

f(3) = -4 x f(2) - 3 x f(1)

      = -4 x -26 -3 x 8

      = 104 - 24

      = 80

No particular pattern - just continue like this
