    part b is definitely induction ... this property could be used to show that 2<e<3

    for n=1 we have 1/1!=1 and 1/2^(1-1)=1/1=1 \(1\le 1\) so the basis step holds assume \[\frac{1}{k!}\le\frac{1}{2^{k-1}}\] is true for some \(k\) then \[\frac{1}{(k+1)!}=\frac{1}{k!}\frac{1}{k+1}\le\frac{1}{2^{k-1}}\frac{1}{k+1}\] since \(\frac{1}{2}\ge\frac{1}{n+1}\) for \(n\ge1\) we have \[\frac{1}{2^{k-1}}\frac{1}{k+1}\le\frac{1}{2^{k-1}}\frac{1}{2}=\frac{1}{2^{k}}\] QED
