MATHEMATICAL INDUCTION 89 Which shows 5(n+ 1) + 5 (n+ 1)2.By the principle of mathematical induction it follows that 5n+ 5 n2 for all integers n 6. In a convex polygon with n vertices, the greatest number of diagonal that can be drawn is 1 2 n(n−3). stream The sum of the ﬁrst n positive integers (1,2,3,...)is1 2 n(n+1). (c) Plugging n = 20 in a calculator yields the answer quickly. Prove the (k+1)th case is true. The principle of mathematical induction states that if for some property P(n), we have thatP(0) is true and For any natural number n, P(n) → P(n + 1) Then For any natural number n, P(n) is true. So our property P P is: n3 + 2n n 3 + 2 n is divisible by 3 3. Induction step: Let n2Z+and suppose that 1 + :::+ n=n(n+1) 2.

Then 1 + :::+ n+ n+ 1 = (1 + :::+ n) + n+ 1IH=. Mathematical induction is a proof technique that can be applied to establish the veracity of mathematical statements. Recurrive formula [Second Principle of Mathematical Induction] Let {a n } be a sequence of real numbers satisfying a 1 = 2, a 2 = 3 and a n+2 = 3a n+1 – 2a n . G����b�!|C���@��)�?��x#�\$�Rk�_. Mathematical Induction Proof. Thus by the principle of mathematical induction, for all n 1, Pn holds. Proof (by mathematical induction): Suppose r is a particular but arbitrarily chosen real number that is not equal to 1, and let the property P(n) be the equation We must show that P(n) is true for all integers n ≥≥≥≥ 0. %PDF-1.4 H�\$��B�w#�j ���rp�7f~��|��3B�a���C�E`:�lsp�u!�]Wpd�����u8� ���Z= �\~�z�o'�I8s���܌���D�~D2�\:�d�8�J�˩a�����x-��";")0�s��n\���h�Zn��s�2c�W&�2'� �Y���u�12�w�>p2 NS�t�Vk{Kb������S���XA �Y@:#�e�DI����uE(�D�j����1@Eэ�# <> Proof: By induction.Let P(n) be “the sum of the first n powers of two is 2n – 1.” We will show P(n) is true for all n ∈ ℕ. Our goal is to rigorously prove something we observed experimentally in class, that every fth Fibonacci number is a multiple of 5. ���Q�#Z��i�|�����S�α2D��j�ҽ4q��nN����@\�x{Y}��4��Vq�P�Fh"�E%%�Ϋ�Շ]` *� C�z���EZ�=�o9� m��T ���? Go through the first two of your three steps: 4 CS 441 Discrete mathematics for CS M. Hauskrecht Mathematical induction Example: Prove n3 - n is divisible by 3 for all positive integers. 11 0 obj Then the set S of positive integers for which P(n) is false is nonempty. • Mathematical induction is valid because of the well ordering property. O�&��X�,����;��Ӊ ���y���x�v!�D;��� �����Yg� Proposition 1. The principle of mathematical induction states that if for some property P(n), we have thatP(0) is true and For any natural number n, P(n) → P(n + 1) Then For any natural number n, P(n) is true. Since the sum of the first zero powers of two is 0 = 20 – 1, we see You MUST at some point use your 2. Here is a more reasonable use of mathematical induction: Show that, given any positive integer n n, n3 + 2n n 3 + 2 n yields an answer divisible by 3 3.

Discussion In Example 3.4.1, the predicate, P(n), is 5n+5 n2, and the universe of discourse is the set of integers n6. We do this by mathematical induction on n. Example 3 – Solution cont’d Notice that the basis step is to prove P(6). For our base case, we need to show P(0) is true, meaning the sum of the first zero powers of two is 20 – 1.

Base case (n= 1): Indeed 1 =1(1+1) 2. By the principle of mathematical induction it follows that 5n+ 5 n2for all integers n6. State the claim you are proving. Discussion In Example 3.4.1, the predicate, P(n), is 5n+5 n2, and the universe of discourse is the set of integers n 6. Write (Base Case) and prove the base case holds for n=a. Theorem: The sum of the first n powers of two is 2n – 1. (Don’t use ghetto P(n) lingo). Write (Induction Hypothesis) say “Assume ___ for some ≥”.4. �OS���GiSVRI��/���tjH`�8u�©��#EHOpP��\$Tw%\$����\$&79\$*��@����_ć?�Tĥ%��>T5G#��>Exn�s\$��!9U�wyLs"-�i���렷�A�#1�˗) %PDF-1.3 %���� Proposition 2. 3. n(n+ 1) 2 + n+ 1 = n2+ n 2 + 2n+ 2 2 = n2+ 2n+ 3 2 = (n+ 1)(n+ 2) 2 = (n+ 1)((n+ 1) + 1) 2 : Here the letters \IH" signify that the induction hypothesis was used. �E7t�����-X�����>��@ �&D�Dn����@3?
