Question

7. Prove that for all n ∈ N, if n ≥ 12 then there are k, ` ∈ N such that 4k + 5` = n. (Hint: use strong induction on the set {n ∈ N : n ≥ 12}, but first prove the result directly for n = 12, 13, 14, and 15.

Answer #1

By induction if n 12 then there are k, y such that n= 4k+5y

(10) Use mathematical induction to prove that
7n – 2n is divisible by 5
for all n >= 0.

Without using the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, use strong
induction to prove that for all positive integers n with n ≥ 2, n
has a prime factor.

Use Mathematical Induction to prove that 3 | (n^3 + 2n) for all
integers n = 0, 1, 2, ....

Prove directly from the definition of the limit
(b) lim (n−2)/(n+12)=1
c) lim n√8 = 1. (Hint: recall the formula for x^n − 1).

Prove that for all n ∈ Z, there exists a k ∈ Z such that n^3 =
9k, n^3 = 9k + 1, or n^3 = 9k − 1.

Use the Strong Principle of Mathematical Induction to prove that
for each integer n ≥28, there are nonnegative integers x and y such
that n= 5x+ 8y

Solution.The Fibonacci numbers are defined by the recurrence
relation is defined F1 = 1, F2 = 1 and for n > 1, Fn+1 = Fn +
Fn−1. So the first few Fibonacci Numbers are: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13,
21, 34, 55, 89, 144, . . . There are numerous curious properties of
the Fibonacci Numbers Use the method of mathematical induction to
verify a: For all integers n > 1 and m > 0 Fn−1Fm + FnFm+1...

Use strong induction to prove that every natural number n ≥ 2
can be written as n = 2x + 3y, where x and y are integers greater
than or equal to 0. Show the induction step and hypothesis along
with any cases

prove (by induction) that (1+a)n >1+na for all
nonzero real numbers a > -1 and all integers n>1

Show all the steps...
Prove by induction that 3n < 2n for all
n ≥ ______. (You should figure out what number goes in the
blank.)
