# Problem #911

 911 Consider sequences of positive real numbers of the form $x, 2000, y, \dots$ in which every term after the first is 1 less than the product of its two immediate neighbors. For how many different values of $x$ does the term 2001 appear somewhere in the sequence? $\text{(A) }1 \qquad \text{(B) }2 \qquad \text{(C) }3 \qquad \text{(D) }4 \qquad \text{(E) more than }4$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.
