Homework Help: Discrete Math

Posted by Francesca on Tuesday, April 5, 2011 at 4:11pm.

Solve the recurrence relation a_n = -6a_n - 1 + 7a_n-2, n ≥ 2, given a₀ = 32, a₁ = -17.

This is what I have figured out so far:

polynomial: x² + 6x - 7
distinct roots: 1 and -7

I do not understand how to find C₁ and C₂. How do I complete this problem? Thank you for any helpful replies.
