Problem 197. Recurrence relation

Created by Tomasz

A recurrence relation is given by

P(1)   := 1
P(n+1) := exp(1) - (n+1)*P(n)

Write a function that, given an integer n, returns P(n). The n will be smaller than 100 in all test-suite problems and an absolute precision of 10*eps (~2e-15, i.e. almost machine precision) is required.
