Hello! Fn+4 + Fn = 3Fn+2 for n = 0,1,2, . . . Would the formula, necessarily remain true if the sequence Fn is replaced by a sequence with the same recurrence relation as the Fibonacci sequence but different initial terms? Justify your answer briefly. any ideas? thanks

Yes, the derivation of the given formula relies solely on the recurrence definition.
