Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (23,-90)

FORMULA

a(n) = (108*18^n + 48*5^n)/13.

a(n) = 18*a(n-1) - 48*5^(n - 1);

a(n) = 23*a(n-1) - 90*a(n-2), with a(0) = 12 and a(1) = 168.

G.f.: - 12*(9*x - 1)/((5*x - 1)*(18*x - 1)).

E.g.f.: (108*exp(18*x) + 48*exp(5*x))/13.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 168 because 108 business cards are needed for the squeleton and 60 more for the panels (see guide in links).
