4a + 2b + c = 11

16a + 4b + c = -7

49a + 7b + c = -64

(a,b,c) = (-2,3,13)

So, Tn = -2n^2 + 3n + 13

just solved the system of equations. I used wolframalpha.com, but you can use elimination, determinants, substitution, or whatever you like to use for solving systems of equations.

Algebra I stuff. Dust off those skills.
