Hi, Could someone help me solve this, please. Show by Induction that for n >= 1: (3^(3n)) + (2^(n+2)) is divisible by 5 Thanks.

Show that under the assumption it's true for n = k + 1: and it should be clear how to finish things off.
Oh I see. Then we let the last bracket equal a number divisible by 5. Thanks.
