    use induction...prove for n=1...assume true of n...show true for n+1

    \[\sum _{k=1}^n \text{ln}\left[\frac{k(k+2)}{(k+1)^2}\right]\] \[=\text{ln}\left[\prod _{k=1}^n \frac{k(k+2)}{(k+1)^2}\right]\] then show \[\prod _{k=1}^n \frac{k(k+2)}{(k+1)^2}=\frac{n+2}{2(n+1)}\]

    \[\prod _{k=1}^n \frac{k(k+2)}{(k+1)^2}\] \[=\frac{(1\cdot2\cdot3\cdot4\cdots n)(3\cdot4\cdot5\cdots n\cdot (n+1)\cdot(n+2)}{2^2\cdot3^2\cdot4^2\cdots n^2\cdot(n+1)^2}\]

    \[=\frac{(1\cdot2\cdot\cancel{3}\cdot\cancel{4}\cdots \cancel{n})(\cancel{3}\cdot\cancel{4}\cdot\cancel{5}\cdots \cancel{n}\cdot (n+1)\cdot(n+2)}{2^2\cdot\cancel{3^2}\cdot\cancel{4^2}\cdots \cancel{n^2}\cdot(n+1)^2}\] \[=\frac{2(n+1)(n+2)}{2^2(n+1)^2}=\frac{n+2}{2(n+1)}\]
