TClllplntl' for Proofs /;y NJl7tllL'IIW/iclllllltilictlOll

1. Express the statement that is to be proved in the form "for all n :::: b, P(n)" for a fixed

integer b.

2. Write out the words "Basis Step." Then show that P (b) is true, taking care that the correct

value of b is used. This completes the first part of the proof.

3. Write out the words "Inductive Step."

4. State, and clearly identify, the inductive hypothesis, in the form "assume that P(k) is true

for an arbitrary fixed integer k :::: b."

S. State what needs to be proved under the assumption that the inductive hypothesis is true.

That is, write out what P (k + 1) says.

6. Prove the statement P(k + 1) making use the assumption P(k). Be sure that your proof

is valid for all integers k with k :::: b, taking care that the proof works for small values

of k, including k = b.

7. Clearly identify the conclusion of the inductive step, such as by saying "this completes

the inductive step." .

8. After completing the basis step and the inductive step, state the conclusion, namely that

by mathematical induction, Pen) is true for all integers n with n :::: b.

It is worthwhile to revisit each of the mathematical induction proofs in Examples 1-14 to see

how these steps are completed. It will be helpful to follow these guidelines in the solutions of the

exercises that ask for proofs by mathematical induction. The guidelines that we presented can

be adapted for each of the variants of mathematical induction that we introduce in the exercises

and later in this chapter.
