hi there,

I'm struggling with the last bit of this induction question...

Q: Let x>-1. Prove by induction that:

(1+x)^n>1+nx

for every integer n>1

--------

So far I've got:

Let P(n) be the statement (1+x)^n>1+nx

(1+x)^1>1+nx = 1+x

Therefore P(1) is true.

Assume true for some n+1

I cannot figure out where to go from here..... could you possibly help me?

Cheers
