Maths Problem + Olympiad Comments

Another #problem! This is question 11 from #AIME I 2008. I'm british, but I've been doing these problems as practice for the British #maths #competitions including the #math #olympiad. Last year I got to round two of the #BrMO, can't wait for this year's competition! Any one else interested in Olympiad math?

Give it a go!

Hint: recurrence relations

It's my 200th toot! I love maths, and am applying to #Cambridge #university to study it there π±

In the meantime, have a go at this fun and reasonably easy maths question from the UKMT #mathschallenge.

Anyone from the olympiad community around on mastodon?
