    Induction



    P(0) is true.

    Assume true for a fixed by arbitrary integer k\geq n.









    Not sure what to do now. Sorry about not using Latex, but since it is having problems, this is the best way I can convey it to you.

    Multiply numerator and denominator of the last expression by (2k+2).
