1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Got this recurrence relation when trying to solve for a series solution to a differential equation: [tex]a_n=\frac{a_{n5}}{n(n1)} , a_0,a_1=constant , a_2,a_3,a_4=0[/tex]
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
My attempt at a solution involved first writing out all the terms which led to the pattern [tex]a_5=\frac{a_0}{5\cdot4}[/tex] and [tex]a_6=\frac{a_1}{6\cdot5}[/tex] and [tex] a_{10}=\frac{a_0}{10\cdot9\cdot5\cdot4}...a_{15}=\frac{a_0}{15\cdot14\c dot10\cdot9\cdot5\cdot4}[/tex]
I ended up with [tex] a_n=\frac{a_0}{5^n \cdot n!}[/tex] missing something on the bottom which as far as I can tell is [tex](5(n)1)(5(n1)1)(5(n2)1)...[/tex]
The problem is that i can't figure out a more concise simple expression for this last part. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
