%N Solution of the complementary equation a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) + b(n) + 1, where a(0) = 3, a(1) = 4, b(0) = 1, b(1) = 2, b(2) = 5, and (a(n)) and (b(n)) are increasing complementary sequences.

%C The increasing complementary sequences a() and b() are uniquely determined by the titular equation and initial values. a(n)/a(n-1) -> (1 + sqrt(5))/2 = golden ratio (A001622).
