(b) Give a recursive definition of the sequence {a n }, where n = 1,2,3,.. if a n = 5n + 1. [Be very careful of the quantification used in the induction step.] Basis Step: Induction Step: (c) Give a recursive definition of the set S of positive integers that are multiples of 4. Basis Step: Induction Step: 4. (10 pts.) Let {a n } be defined by the formula a n = 3n + 2 for n = 1,2,3, .... Define the sequence {b n } recursively by b 1 = 5 and b n+1 = b n + 3 for n = 1,2,3, .... Give a proof by induction that a n = b n for n = 1,2,3, ....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
