    Naah, these bits are the boring bits in fact I don't even have ti do recurrence relationships...

    My Username is really Poisson Distribution :mmm:
    the sequence u1, u2, u3 is defined by un=2^n + kn
    where k is a constant
    given that u1=u3
    A) find the value of k
    b) find the value of u5

    Guidance please u1=u3 makes no sense to me atm

    If someone.said you were a cross between raj and Sheldon... Is that a good thing never watched it...

    Lol it's a good thing and a bad thing.

    1) Shows you obssessed in having everything perfect. EG:

    In the winter that seat is close enough to the radiator to remain warm, and yet not so close as to cause perspiration. In the summer, it's directly in the path of a cross-breeze created by opening windows there and there. It faces the television at an angle that is neither direct, thus discouraging conversation, nor so far wide as to create a parallax distortion. I could go on, but I think I've made my point.

    2) Shows your innocent yet funny. In my opinion Raj is the beloved character since he's from India and cracks jokes. But he can't talk to hot girls hence no girlfriend.

    I have a stalker. :eek:
    This guy who gets the same bus as me has started messaging me on Facebook - baring in mind this is a public bus, he goes to a different college and he's never even spoken to me before! I have absolutely no idea how he found me - he doesn't even know my first name, let alone my last. Well, so I thought...
    And I was on the bus the other day, I turned around and he was just staring at me. He keeps sending me messages on Facebook but won't say anything in real. :eek:
    Aww, someone's got a crush

    OK people, if you've asked me a question, I'll reply in a bit. I have so many to answer now (including loads of PMs ) so I need a bit of a break I will answer them though
    :rofl: I would help answer, but I don't need recurrence relationships... So I didn't look at them properly...

    I understood that but how would you prove k=2
    It say it didn't need to bproven but I wrote this anyway
    -2^2 + 2^4 -12 = 0
    -4 + 16-12=0

    or slightly more complicated

    x^2-x-12=(x-4)(x+3) K^2=x (key) (K^2 -4)(k^2+3)=(k+2)(k-2)(k+3)^2
    obviously the middle one is positive

    :rofl: well, I haven't learnt them... So... If you're saying u = 1.. And that u3 is equal to u1..

    Un = 2^n + kn

    U1 = 1

    U1 = 2 + kn

    U3 = U1

    U3 = 2^3 + kn

    But it doesn't worj

    I'd wait till usy sorry! Ask anything that's not this

    Even.things I'm terrible with like arithmetic series
