Change 1 hour and 25 minutes to the correct notation:
1 hour and 25 minutes = 60 minutes + 25 minutes = 85 minutes
Do
85 60 = x 100
So
x = 85 100 60
x = 141.67 minutes 1.42 hours
Add the total number of hours together:
1.75 hours + 2.33 hours + 1.42 hours = 5.5 hours
Doug earns $10.50 per hour, so for 5.5 hours, multiply 10.50 by 5.5:
$10.50⋅5.5=$57.75

I would like to find the closed form of the sequence given by
a n + 2 = 2 a n + 1 a n + 2 n + 2 ,         n > 0         a n d       a 1 = 1 ,         a 2 = 4
This task is in the topic of differential and difference equation. I don't know how to start solving this problem and what are we looking for? ( a n , a n + 2 )
I do know how to solve the following form
a n + 2 = 2 a n + 1 a n
using linear algebra as well. The actual problem I encountered the obstructionist term 2 n + 2
Are there some kind of variational constant method for recursive linear sequences,?
I only now this method for linear ODE with constant coefficient.
But I believe that such method could be doable here as well. Can any one provide me with a helpful hint or answer?.

The title might not be too descriptive; I'm not sure how to classify this question.
I have a set of linear equations of the form
ciAi+piBi=E
where Ai,Bi and E are 3 by 1 column vectors and ci and pi are scalars. As the subscripts indicate, I have n such linear equations, where all the scalars and vectors except E change with each one. Another limitation is that all I know for each set of linear equations is Ai and Bi, and I want to find E.
Is there a method for solving these equations?
The equation above is a simplification of the equation
RpTTD=ciAipiRDBi
where RpT is the inverse of a rotation matrix, TD is a translation vector and RD is another rotation matrix. I am interested in finding the rotation matrix Rp. Again, this equation describes the relationship between two homogenious points (Ai and Bi) in 3D space, where the z component is 1 (i.e., the c and p scalars project the points to somewhere in the 3D space other than (x, y, 1)). I have n point-pairs A and B.

I was reading Linear Algebra by Hoffman and Kunze and I encountered some concepts which were arguably not explained or expounded upon thoroughly. I will present my questions below, and I am looking for answers that do not invoke concepts like determinant, vector spaces etc. Note that this is an introductory chapter that assumes no knowledge of the above concepts.
Question 1: Consider a linear system A with k equations. If we form a new equation by taking a linear combination of these k equations, then any solution of A is also a solution of this new equation. Why is this so?
Question 2a: Consider two linear systems A and B. If each equation of A is a linear combination of the equations of B, then any solution of B is also a solution of A. Why is this so?
Question 2b: If each equation of A is a linear combination of the equations of B, then it is not necessary that any solution of A is also a solution of B. Why is this so?
