Abstract

Summary In this note we examine a well-studied problem concerning the terms of a certain linear recurrence modulo prime numbers. We present three solutions to this problem and examine the similarities and differences between them. In particular, despite using primality in different ways, all three proofs yield the same generalization of the original problem.
