## Homework Statement

[tex]a_n+3a_{n-1}-10a_{n-2}=2^n[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I missed the lectures that addressed how to solve these kinds of problems, and while studying my recommended textbook it only went as far as solving recurrence relations that are equal to 0 as opposed to 2

^{n}. I understand how to solve the simple recurrence relations but I have no clue as to what to do with these.

Also, if you may, can you please explain any special cases that I should be looking for?

For example,

[tex]a_n+2a_{n-1}+a_{n-2}=0[/tex] would need to be handled differently because of the double root associated with it.
