# Generating the Terms of a First Order Linear Recurrence Relation

Generating the Terms of a First Order Linear Recurrence Relation is a part of the VCE Further Maths topic Recursion and Financial Modelling. It is a part of the subtopic Depreciation of Assets. In this post, we look at the concept of a first-order linear recurrence relation and its use in generating the terms in a sequence. We also look at using a given first-order linear recurrence relation to generate the terms of a sequence.
