**Lesson 10.4: Mathematical Induction**

Mathematical Induction is a form of mathematical proof. Principle of Mathematical Induction: Let Pn be a statement involving a positive integer, n. If P1 is true, and The truth of Pk implies the truth of Pk+1, for every positive integer k, then Pn is true for all integers n. [p 688] To apply Mathematical Induction you need to Show the statement is true when n=1 Assume the statement is true for n=k, and then use it to show the statement is true for n=k+1.

**1. Let n = , show the statement is true. 1**

Use Mathematical Induction to prove the statement is true positive integer. 1. Let n = , show the statement is true. 1 2a. Let n = , assume the statement below is true. k 2b. Let n = , show the statement is true, using 2a. k+1 Must show that = Sk
