|SeveredCross||2^1, 2^2, 3*5|
|Jafet||Duh, 24 of course.|
|SeveredCross||I don't see it.|
|Jafet||f(n) => 2 if n = 1, 4 if n = 2, 15 if n = 3, 0 otherwise.|
|Okfdewqd||can't figure out what kind of pattern it is|
Not geometric, not algebraic.
Maybe it's 3 times the previous term - the previous term?
Nope, not right.
|SeveredCross||Isn't there a way to derive that using linear algebra?|
such "exercises" are retarded anyway :P
|whaleofconfusion||it's probably 23|
|SeveredCross||multi_io has a good idea IMO.|
|_kmh_||what's the problem ?|
|whaleofconfusion||a ridiculous problem, a sequence with only 3 elts|
|SeveredCross||Find the next element|
|whaleofconfusion||and you're supposed to guess from that what comes next|
|SeveredCross||ie. find the generating function.|
|_kmh_||hmmm one of those ?:)|
generating function ?
|whaleofconfusion||Okfdewqd: where did you see this problem?|
|SeveredCross||I know that's not the proper usage|
But I just call it that
|SeveredCross||I knew it was only a matter of time before someone called me on it.|
But I just look at those sequences as the outputs to a function
|_kmh_||sobasicaly you want to continue the sequence ?|
