    Hi,

    I've been practising some proof by induction qs, particularly the ones with sequences. I understand how to do the ones where you are given Un+1 and have to prove Un. However there are some where you are given Un+2 in terms of Un+1 and Un and you have to prove Un. Please could someone explain how to approach these ones?

    Thanks
