(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let S_{1}=1 and inductively define the sequence S_{n}so that S_{n+1}= [tex]\sqrt{Sn + 1}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure what it means to "inductively define".

I think it wants me to come up with an equation for S_{n}by using S_{n+1}.

Does it want me to define S_{n}in terms of S_{n+1}or just in terms of n?

How should I go about starting this?
