One single number, such as 634413087 does not define a sequence.

Assuming each term is 3 MORE than the previous term t(n) = -13 + 3*n where n = 1, 2, 3, ...

It is often possible to find an explicit formula that gives the same answer as a given recursive formula - and vice versa. I don't think you can always find an explicit formula that gives the same answer.

what is the recursive formula for this geometric sequence?

A sequence cannot be defined by one number. At least, not a sequence of any value.

In order to answer the question is is necessary to know what the explicit formula was. But, since you have not bothered to provide that information, the answer is .

Good Question! After 6 years of math classes in college, and 30+ years of teaching (during which I took many summer classes) I've never seen an explicit formula for the nth term of the Fibonacci sequence. Study more math and maybe you can discover the explicit formula that you want.

The simplest formula isUn = (-8611*n^2 + 34477*n - 25082)/2 for n = 1, 2, 3.
