Oh, and how should I have written this in Laytex?

Can anyone give this a go? I am expecting to solve it by induction. But I can see no way of making the leap from numbers like F_n all the way up to F_2n.

The inductive hypothesis doesn't apply to F_(2n+1) so I can see no way to proceed. - September 16th 2008, 01:23 AMMoo
Hello,

Try strong induction Mathematical induction - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And it's Fibonacci, not Fibronachi :p - September 16th 2008, 05:08 PMNonCommAlg
