First, you want to write out what \(T_{n+1}\) and \(T_{n-1}\) are using the fact that \(\displaystyle T_n=\frac{n-1}{n}\). Can you tell me what \(T_{n+1}\) is?

n/n+1

Right, and \(T_{n-1}\)?

n-2/n-1

Bingo. So you have \[T_{n+1}-T_{n-1}=\frac{n}{n+1}-\frac{n-2}{n-1}\]Find a common denominator, and simplify.

yeh i did that and got to the answer 2/(1-n) which is wrong
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
Alright, to get a common denominator, you do the following, and simplify. \[\left(\frac{n}{n+1}\cdot\frac{n-1}{n-1}\right)-\left(\frac{n-2}{n-1}\cdot\frac{n+1}{n+1}\right)\] Does this help?
