    I see no constant A in your attachment. Regardless of that, knowing p0 and p1 is enough to completely determine the solution.

    Just a matter of "practicality", it's almost certainly easiest here to simply apply the recurrence twice to find P2 and then P3. It's something a GCSE student could do, but it's also the least calculation.

    Edit: and to be clear, in that case you never need to work out the "correct" value for A.
