Q. 3

# Prove the followi

Let the given statement be P(n), as

Steps for Proving a statement using Mathematical Induction are:
Step 1: Verify that P(1) is true.
Step 2: If P(k) is true then P(k + 1) is also true.

Step 1:

First, we check if it is true for n = 1,

It is true for n = 1.

Step 2:

Now we assume that it is true for some positive integer k, such that

…………..(1)

We shall prove that P(k + 1)is true,

Solving the left hand side with n = k + 1

[From equation (1)]

Which is equal to the Right hand side for n = k + 1.We proved that P(k + 1) is true.

Hence by principle of mathematical induction it is true for all n ∈ N.
