    Question 4

    substitute rn for an
    we get rn = 6rn-1 - 8rn-2‚Äč
    so r2 = 6r -8 or (r-4)(r-2)=0 so r = 4 or 2

    A general solution is thus of the form an = A+ B

    Now use a0 = 2 and a1 = 72 = A + B and 7 = 2A + 4B solving these gives = 0.5 and B = 1.5

    The formula is thus an = 0.5(2n) + 1.5(4n)

    Welcome to the forum, ffdude!

    Please take some time to read the forum rules. In particular, rule #8 recommends asking just one or at most two questions in one thread. Also, it would be much easier to understand your work if you typed it instead of taking a photo of it. It does not seem to have complicated formulas, so it can be typed even without the powerful formula editor on the right of the edit box. Finally, problem 1(a) refers to the description of an ice-cream palour, which is missing in the picture.
