The question is:
Prove (by mathematical induction) that:
I've proved the equality for n=1 as my base step. For my induction step I said that S(1) is true. Suppose that S(n)=S(k). We need to prove that S(k+1) is true. So the LHS becomes:
And I used integration by parts to get the expression
However I'm not sure what the RHS expression becomes for S(k+1). I thought it might be:
But I don't think that's correct. Any help appreciated! Many thanks.
