Sigma, , stands for SUM where as Pi, stands for product.
Prove that
for integers
I want to know - what does the mean? Can I do this question through induction? And how does the affect my working - as opposed to or ?
I did attempt this, but I haven't got anywhere near close enough. I, sort of, treated the sign as a - so the term to add on to both sides was . So no doubt I was completely wrong there.
Help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Yes, of course. But I was confused what the i=2 meant.
Yes. So under the pi sign, if it's i=3, does that mean that n=3 is the first
term? (Sorry, I know it's probably very simple to understand, but I'm not quite grasping it).
As for the question, I was able to prove it. Thanks.

If is true, then is also true. But since is true, is true, is true...etc. Hence proved.
