I know that the Fibonnaci equation, Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2, allows you to calculate (If you are using rabbits) each rabbit giving offspring to one other pair or rabbits. How does one create an equation for three offspring for each rabbit, instead of one? Instead of 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13..you have 0, 1, 1, 4, 7, 19, 38. I've been trying to create a formula that matches this, but I'm not sure if I'm doing more work than I need to. If(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); krepresents the number of offspring, the closest I have come up with is X_{n}= X(_{n-1)}+ X_{(n-2)}+k+ n with n being the generation number, Xn being the number of rabbits. It works for the first few generations but falls apart eventually.
