Unformatted text preview: following simultaneous equations available: a + b + c + d = 1 16 a + 8 b + 4 c + 2 d = 9 81 a + 27 b + 9 c + 3 d = 36 256 a + 64 b + 16 c + 4 d = 100 Solving this set, we get a = 1 / 4 , b = 1 / 2 , c = 1 / 4 , and d = 0 . Thus, the closed form formula is n 4 + 2 n 3 + n 2 4 . The student should verify by induction. 88...
