Examples of sequences defined by recurrence equations are given and solved. Then, we provide the general method for solving all first-order recurrence equations. The Fibonacci sequence is explored in some depth, followed by the general method for solving second-order recurrence equations. This chapter ends with Zeno’s paradoxes and the formal definition of convergence of infinite series.
