Answer

a) $\{15,11.25,8.4375, 6.328125\}$ b) $0.75^n(20)$

Work Step by Step

a) $h_n = rh_{n-1}$ $h_1 = 0.75h_0 = 15$ $h_2 = 0.75h_1 = 11.25$ $h_3 = 0.75h_2 = 8.4375$ $h_4 = 0.75h_3 = 6.328125$ b) We have to multiply the initial value $h_0$ by $r$, $n$ number of times. $h_n = r^nh_{0} = 0.75^n(20)$
