Hello

I can't figure out how to define a recursive sequence in CAS on the HP prime.

I want to define:

u(1)=3/2

u(2)=5/3

u(n)=2003-6002/u(n-1)+4000/(u(n-1)u(n-2))

Of course, I can define this sequence in the sequence app in HOME mode but it gives wrong answers (the sequence is made for that purpose ) so I want to have exact values in CAS.

I made a CAS program with a FOR loop and it works fine but I'm looking for a more straightforward way to do this.

In XCAS, I can type in

and it works.

I am looking for a similar syntax working on the prime too.

thank you for your help.
