Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@ strobe, so i am supposed to plug in a 2 instead of a 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sum_{i = 2}^{2} = 2(2)^{2} = 8\]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so add that to the first summation and i get 10 on the LHS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2after step one (show p(1) is true: step 2 is assume p(k) is true and then show p(k) implies p(k+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Cant quite see how i can make that happen at the moment, heres what I have:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[p(k) : \sum_{i=1}^{k+1}i2^{i} = k2^{k+2}+2\]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[p(k+1): \sum_{i=1}^{k+2}i2^{i}=(k+1)2^{k+3}+2\]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2RHS simplifies to \[k2^{k+3}+2^{k+3}+2\]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So now I need to add something to p(k) to make it match p(k+1)

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and if after adding that to p(k) the RHS of p(k) = the RHS of p(k+1), that is sufficient proof

strobe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I wouldn't bother expanding the RHS. I would expand the LHS, then put it in terms of p(k) + something, replace p(k) with the LHS, then rearrange that result so it looks like the LHS of p(k+1)

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[p(k)+(k+1)2^{k+1}: \sum_{i=1}^{k+1}i2^{i}+(k+1)2^{k+1}=k2^{k+2}+2+(k+1)2^{k+1}\]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hmm, i was always taught to modify add to p(k) then modify p(k)+ whateverRHS to make it the same as RHS of p(k+1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This is so freakin complicated

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2"I would calculate the RHS for k + 1 and then leave it alone. Then try and change the LHS to the same form as the RHS but substituting in the the RHS of p(k) into the LHS."

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So first I should calculate the right hand side of p(k+1)?

strobe
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0p(k+1), but dont expand or simplify it, leave it as it is. This is what you're aiming for with the LHS.

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2RHS of p(k+1): \[(k+1)2^{(k+1)+2}+2\]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2isnt much calculation to do really, just plug in

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Then I want to make LHS of P(k+1) the same as that:

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2RHS of p(k+1): \[\sum_{i=1}^{(k+1)+1}i2^{i}\]

strobe
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup, so that equals the LHS of p(k) + something, find that something

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So I should expand the LHS of p(k+1) first?

strobe
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Expand so it looks like LHS of p(k) + something

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I would need to add (k+1)2^(k+1) to LHS of p(k) for them to be equal

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I just have to show that...

strobe
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so LHS p(k+1) = LHS p(k) + (k+2)2^(k+2) (you almost got it) but we know LHS = RHS of p(k), so substitute the LHS with the RHS

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[(p(k)LHS)+(k+1)2 ^{k+1}> (k2^{k+2}+2)+(k+1)2 ^{k+1}\]

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The substitution into (p(k)LHS) is p(k)RHS

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now I need to make that = the RHS or p(k+1)?

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If so, that's the method I am familiar with

strobe

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup, you'll find it all factorises nicely

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, I must have bliped up somewhere before then, cause the Q i asked making the sides equal was my next step from here attempted

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so im trying to make \[(k2^{k+2}+2)+(k+1)2^{k+1} = (k+1)2^{(k+1)+2}+2 \]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2expanding everything out isnt the way to go?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have to be very careful with the indices with this problem. We can show the expression works for n=1. Now assume it is true for n=m. Can we show it is true for m+1?

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Thats what i tried to show

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Did i make an arithmetic error somewhere or is my methodology wrong or what

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\sum_{i=1}^{m+2}i2^i= \sum_{i=1}^{m+1}i2^i + (m+2)w^{m+2}\]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not sure where you went wrong. See how we start: We increased m by 1, and then break the sum into two parts.

phi
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the first sum on the right hand side "works" because we assume it works for n=m. so we can replace it with \[ m 2^{m+2} +2 \]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that "w" in the first formula is a 2 ! \[ \sum_{i=1}^{m+2}i2^i= \sum_{i=1}^{m+1}i2^i + (m+2)2^{m+2}\] \[ = 2+ m 2^{m+2} +(m+2)2^{m+2} \]

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so now I need to set that equal to the right hand side of m+1

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2or make it equal that at least

phi
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm still working on it. we want the right hand side equal to what the formula says if we use n= m+1

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2RHS of m+1:\[(m+1)2^{m+3}+2 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok i must have messed that up somewhere

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you see how to get the "new" version? (with m+2), it's the next term we are adding, with i= (m+2)

phi
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's confusing because we go to n+1 instead of n, so going up one term means n+2. Anyways... can you simplify what we have?

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2making it m made it less tho

phi
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we get \[ 2+ m 2^{m+2}+m2^{m+2} + 2^{m+3} \]

mwmnj

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2thats \[2+2m ^{m+2}+2^{m+3}\]

phi
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1add the two m2^(m+2) to get m*2*2^(m+2) = m*2^(m+3)

mwmnj
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2RHS is \[2+m2^{m+3}+2^{m+3}+2\]

phi
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have an extra 2 in there. But factor out 2^(m+3) to get \[ 2+ (m+1) 2^{m+3} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hopefully fully see where i bliped up

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would tweak it a bit. Your statement showing that the formula works for p(1) is not clear. It is better to state: by definition \[ p(1)=\sum_{1}^{2} i2^i= 1\cdot2^1+2\cdot 2^2= 10\] From the formula, p(1) is \[ p(1)= 1 \cdot 2^{(1+2)}+2=10 \] therefore the formula holds for n=1 Also add a short explanation of what you are doing in part 2b. For example, The formula gives p(k+1) as .... and for the second part: By definition, p(k+1)= .... Finally, point out where you are making use of the assumption that the formula is assumed to be true for p(k). This is where you replace the summation with the results of the formula.
