Let Sue =S and Bob =B
S=2B−3
S=B+7
Since S=S, then
2B−3=B+7
Do some algebra to figure out that
2B−B=7+3
B=10
Since Sue is 7 years older than Bob, she is 17.

During some computations I came up with the following system of linear recurrences:
Bn+2=3Bn+An
An=An1+Bn1
Here I am trying to find the solution for B (hoping to get some sort of homogeneous equation, find it roots and get the closed form formula).
But I can't solve it. The only thing I can do is
Bn+2=3Bn+i=0n1Bi,
which will not help me to solve recurrence. So is there a way I can find B without the summation through n?

My book says the general form of a linear differential equation is:
y+P(x)y=Q(x)
But my teacher said that a linear differential equation has the general form:
y+P(x)y+Q(x)y=f(x)
Which is the correct form or they are both correct?
