One easy way to begin your solution would be to write the term for n, noting that 3^{(2n)} = 9^{n}. Note that the given expression for n+1 is just 9 times the expression for n plus something. It is your job to determine that something. Chris Fisher.
Jerry, At the induction step write 3^{(2n+4)}  8(n+1) 9 as
and if you collect terms carefully you'll see the next
step.
