- Last discussion (Friday 8): will go through this problem from the exercises: Frogs problem (Recursive Functions) .
(Answer to a frequently asked question about the form of the solution in Question 2:
the third term has a 'n' because the (-1) solution is multiple, that is recurrent:
at each iteration you add one more term so you can express it that way)
