ello ello! I ran into this problem and i went in circles trying to figure it out. Anyone have any suggestions? Here is what i have: Find the solution to the following lhcc recurrence: with initial conditions The solution is of the form: or suitable constants with Find these constants. [tex]r_1 = r_2 = \alpha_1 = \alpha_2 =[/tex] Okay so I plugged the 2 inital conditions in for the solution form and got: 1 = [tex]\alpha_1[/tex] + [tex]\alpha_2[/tex] 4 = [tex]\alpha_1[/tex]*r1 + [tex]\alpha_2[/tex]*r2 I can't solve t hat, too many unkowns and not enough equations. I also tried to find a2,a3,a4, then putting it all in terms of a0 and a1, then i was like urnt, what now? THanks!
