SeveredCross2^1, 2^2, 3*5
JafetDuh, 24 of course.
aegray42
SeveredCrossI don't see it.
Jafets/24/42
actionaegray wins!
aegraywins!
SeveredCross3*n-n?
Nope.
Not right
Jafetf(n) => 2 if n = 1, 4 if n = 2, 15 if n = 3, 0 otherwise.
SeveredCrossBah
Okfdewqdcan't figure out what kind of pattern it is
SeveredCrossMe either.
Not geometric, not algebraic.
Maybe it's 3 times the previous term - the previous term?
Nope, not right.
15 fails.
Hmm.
_kmh_hi
SeveredCrossIsn't there a way to derive that using linear algebra?
multi_io(2+1)*(4+1)=15, (4+1)*(15+1)=80
such "exercises" are retarded anyway :P
whaleofconfusionit's probably 23
SeveredCrossWhy 23?
whaleofconfusionnah nm
SeveredCrossmulti_io has a good idea IMO.
_kmh_what's the problem ?
whaleofconfusiona ridiculous problem, a sequence with only 3 elts
SeveredCrossFind the next element
whaleofconfusionand you're supposed to guess from that what comes next
SeveredCrossie. find the generating function.
_kmh_hmmm one of those ?:)
generating function ?
whaleofconfusionOkfdewqd: where did you see this problem?
SeveredCrossI know that's not the proper usage
But I just call it that
_kmh_ah ok
SeveredCrossI 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 ?
