Identify the smallest in relation to so that the proposition can be proved using mathematical induction (over n).
Fiddling around with the numbers is a least condition for the inequality, but how can I find out the relationship between k and n for all n?
Just as a beginning:
re-write the hypothesis:
but from this we see that:
Is it possible to conclude that:
which is just nonsense. I think? Can someone please help?!
