Hi

Have a look to the LATEX tutorial in the LATEX forum

Let P(n) be

Check that P(1) is true

Suppose that P(k) is true and show that P(k+1) is true - Mar 5th 2009, 09:25 AMtokio
Thanks for the help, but i need help on the induction stage, when i do n+1. Here is what i have.

Hello tokioThat's correct. I thought it was just the manipulation of the RHS that you couldn't do. The complete proof is:

Let be the propositional function:

Then

(as in my previous posting)

is , which is true. Hence .

PS If you want to see the LaTeX that's been used to generate any of the expressions, just click on them and a little window will open showing you the code.
