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

I need to find the recursive and explicit formulas for the sequence 1,-2, 3, -4, 5

2. Relevant equations

Recursive Rule: Fn= Fn-1 + Fn-2

Explicit Rule: position of terms F1, F2, F3,....

3. The attempt at a solution

I have figured out explicit because its ((-1)^n+1)n

Recursive rule i am having trouble with because its around something like -(Fn-1 +1) or close to that
