# solution for recurrence relation, characteristic roots method.

For my characteristic roots method for solving a homogeneous recurrence relation, I got the roots for the equation as $2,2,3,3$.

for satisfying the boundary conditions, will the general solution be

$2^n(c_1+c_2\cdot n)+3^n(c_3+c_4\cdot n)$?

This looks right - it would help clarity if you gave the actual recurrence you are working with - I assume it is $a_{n+4}=10a_{n+3}-37a_{n+2}+60a_{n+1}-36a_n$
Have you tried checking that your proposed solution works? Since four items determine the whole thing, you need the four coefficients, but since this is linear you could check $2^n, n2^n, 3^n$ and $n3^n$ separately.
