{a[itex]_{n}[/itex]]}n>=0 when a[itex]_{n}[/itex] is given by

a[itex]_{n}[/itex] = 6 * 5^n - 5 * 3^n.

My question is how do you find the recurrence relation a[itex]_{n}[/itex] = 6 * 5^n - 5 * 3^n.

I don't know were to start.

Why bother with finding a recurrence relation? Your sequence looks like a combination of two geometric sequences. What is the the generating function for each one? What do you get when you add the two generating functions together?
