Find the full definition of a
_{n} in terms of a
_{n1} given a
_{1}=1.
The first 7 terms are:
1, 3, 8, 9, 4, 5, 10 ...
How does it continue?
Taking the first three terms 1,3,8 as basis for the sequence:
a4 = a1 + a3 = 1+8 = 9
a5 = a1 + a2 = 1+3 = 4
a6 = a1 + a5 = 1+4 = 5
a7 = a1 + a4 = 1+9 = 10
Generalizing
a(n) = a1 + a((n2)+(1)^n))
for n>3
Accordingly next terms:
a8 = a1 + a7 = 11
a9 = a1 + a6 = 6
Is this is the intended solution?
