2 (i –1) 3. The calculation of the cell in row i for the function column is given by f (i –1) + Diff. 1(i –1) In other words, to calculate the value of a particular cell, all that is required is to add the value in the cell immediately above it to the value of the cell immediately to its right. Therefore, in the second row, the calculations 6 + 9 yields 15, and 9 + 4 yields 13, and, since the last column is always a constant it is just repeated. Therefore, the second row is 15, 13 and 4 and f (2) is 15.
