.For example if the first two terms are 2 and 5 then the next term is (1+5)/2=3 and the sequence is
2, 5, 3, 4/5, 3/5, 2, 5, … etc.
Investigate the sequences you get when you choose your own first two terms. What happens to your sequences?
Make a conjecture about the behaviour of sequences given by this rule.
Can you prove your conjecture?
