Names of sequence progressions.

  1. May 13, 2012 #1
    If Un+1=Un + d defines an arithmetic progression, and Un+1 = kUn defines a geometric progression, is there a name for a progression defined by Un+1 =KUn + d? Thanks.

    Hi Aeneas! :smile:

    We can rewrite that as Un+1 - d/(1 - K) =K(Un - d/(1 - k)) …

    geometric. :wink:
