Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from lyn, a student:

can you give me a basic example of a mathematical induction

Hi Lyn,

I suggest that you go to the Quandaries and Queries page on Math Central and type the word induction into the Quick Search. There are a number of examples that will result from this search. Two in particular example to look at are

n^3/3 + n^5/5 + 7n/15 is an integer

and Victoria's comments in

The Principle of Mathematical Induction

but others may be helpful also.
