Solving for a, b, and c is easy:
Off[Solve::"ifun"]
Clear[a, b, c]
a[n] = a[n] /. First@RSolve[{a[n] ==
4*a[n - 1]*(1 - a[n - 1]), a[1] == k1}, a[n], n]
b[n] = b[n] /. First@RSolve[{b[n] == 4*b[n - 1]*(1 - b[n - 1]), b[1] == k2},
b[n], n]
c[n] = (a[n] + b[n])/2 // Simplify
(1/2)*(1 - Cos[2^(-1 + n)*ArcCos[1 - 2*k1]])
(1/2)*(1 - Cos[2^(-1 + n)*ArcCos[1 - 2*k2]])
(1/4)*(2 - Cos[2^(-1 + n)*ArcCos[1 - 2*k1]] -
Cos[2^(-1 + n)*ArcCos[1 - 2*k2]])
Set k1 and k2 equal to 1/10 and 8/10.

I doubt that's possible, or... if it is, it won't be anything you'll like.
