Mathematical induction “For all integers n >= a, P(n).” Base case - push first domino Inductive step – n th domino pushes the n+1 th Wednesday, May 13, 15
Mathematical induction “For all integers n >= a, P(n).” Base case - Prove that P(a) is true. Induction Hypothesis: Assume P(k-1) is true for some k>a. Inductive step: Prove P(k) is true. No need to prove P(k-1) is actually true. Just assume!! Using induction hypothesis, recursive relation between P(k-1) and P(k), and more .... Induction: If P(k-1) is true for some k>a, then P(k) is true. Wednesday, May 13, 15

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
