    Induction problem

    I need to prove with induction on n that every natural number with 3^n number of digits, is divided in 3^n.

    I'm very new in this subject, I don't know even how to start.

    Thanks for any kind of help

    You need to double check your question!
    221 has 3^1 digits but 221 is not divisible by 3^1!
    So it appears not to be true as posted.
