Sequences

Like the Fibonacci sequence, a certain sequence satisfies the recurrence relation an=an−1+an−2. Unlike the Fibonacci sequence, however, the first two terms are a1=4 and a2=1.

Find a32.

asked by Daniel
  1. Heck, just start listing the terms:

    4,1,5,6,11,17,28,...

    It's not a big job to find the 32nd term.
