Homework Help: Non-linear difference equation transformation

  1. Jul 21, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The problem is tough to type out correctly. Pasting problem statement image



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I just need to know how to proceed with the problem. Not the answer. This is the scan of my attempt.


    I stuck about how i eliminate the x and y terms. I thought replacing it with GP series sum would help but it unnecessarily introduces a restriction on x and y.

    Is the initial process in my worked out solution correct?
    if not what direction do you suggest ?

    I suggest posting this in the 'calculus & beyond' section. This definitely does not belong under the rubric 'introductory physics'.

    I have to say that every time somebody links to an image which contains the problem statement and solution, I ignore the post.

    Well not everyone is comfortable with latex and well some equations are just easier to write out. Each to his own I guess. Ill type them out if i can
