    Induction Help

    Hello,

    I think I went wrong somewhere here.
    Particularly in the last 2 lines.
    Here is a pic of my attempt:

    Your posting is totally useless because to is unreadable.
    If you are serious then learn to post your questions in LaTeX code.

    Not a useless question, just hard to read.

    We have a LaTeX system on site. Check out the LaTeX help forum.

    Re: Induction Help

    Verify that for n>=1 [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed]
    My attempt:
    1. Proved for n
    2. Assumed for k:
    [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed]
    3. prove for k+1
    [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed]

    [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed]

    [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed]
    [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed]

    factoring out 3 - 1/k
    never mind i figured out my mistake, i didn't realize to leave a 1 when factoring something from itself.

    Thanks,

    Re: Induction Help

    one advice, just below your message there is a "Go advanced/preview post" - inthat way ou would be able to check your post before posting it , it takes some time from the beginning but it's really helpful,
