1. Given:

To find:

The explicit formula for h(n).

Solution:

We have,

…(i)

It is the recursive formula of a geometric sequence. It is of the form

…(ii)

where r is the common ratio.

On comparing (i) and (ii), we get

We have, so the first term of the geometric sequence is .

The explicit formula for a geometric sequence is:

Substitute a=9 and r=-3 to get the explicit formula for the given sequence.

Therefore, the required explicit formula is .
