```> Table[f[n], {n, 1, 30}]

Hi.  I see you have a solution with Set, and not Equal.

Just to mention an alternative to using Table.

data = {1 ,1 ,1 ,5 ,4 ,3 ,25 ,23 ,22 ,149 ,130 ,110};

k = {0 ,0 ,-1 ,0 ,0 ,21 ,0 ,0 ,69 ,0 ,0 ,64};

LinearRecurrence[k , data , 30]

{1 ,1 ,1 ,5 ,4 ,3 ,25 ,23 ,22 ,149 ,130 ,110 ,
785 ,693 ,623 ,4389 ,3880 ,3397 ,23977 ,
21115 ,18684 ,131893 ,116502 ,102680 ,
724705 ,638985 ,563949 ,3980357 ,3512812 ,3098935}
