1 / 1.2.3 + 1 / 2.3.4 + 1 / 3.4.5 + …….. + 1 / n (n+1) (n+2) = n (n+3) / 4 (n+1) (n+2) ? using principle of mathematical induction prove the following for all n E N ?
Let the given statement be P( n ), i.e.,
For n = 1, we have
, which is true.
Let P(k) be true for some positive integer k, i.e.,
We shall now prove that P(k + 1) is true.
Thus, P(k + 1) is true whenever P(k) is true.
Hence, by the principle of mathematical induction, statement P(n) is true for all natural numbers i.e., n.
