Consider the sequence defined recursively by a1 = 2 an+1 = 7an + 9n + 5n Prove by induction that for all n ≥ 1, an = 9n − 5n . 2 Question 3. Consider the sequence defined recursively by a1 = 1 a2 = 3 an+2 = 3an+1 − 2an Prove by induction that for all n ≥ 1, an = 2n − 1. Question 4. Consider the following 4 × 4 square grid from which one square has been removed: 1 2 HOMEWORK 5 Then it is easily checked that it can be covered without overlaps using L-shaped tiles of the following form: Prove that for any n ≥ 1, a 2n × 2n square grid with any one square removed can be covered without overlaps using such L-shaped tiles. ...
