Find the values for the following problem:
f(X)= 2X-1 + f(X-1) if X is not equal to zeroandiff(X=0)=0
9. Value of f(5)
10. Value of f(f(2))
11. Value of f(16)- f(15)
12. Value of f(16)+f(15)-480
13. If f(f(X))=81 then the value of X=?
14. If f(X)=4f(X-1) then the value of X=?
15.If f(X)= f(X-1)+f(X-2) for X>1 then X= ?
16. If f(X)-f(X-1)=f(X-8) for X>5 then X=?
