I'm trying to solve a third order recurrence relation but not sure how. I wrote the characterisitc polynomial and factored it into \(\displaystyle (x-1)^3\). Now what?

Re: Solving third order reccurence relation

You have the characteristic root $r=1$ of multiplicity 3, so can you state what form the solution will have?
