Assume the formula is true for n=m \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } + a_{2} + a_{3}+…+(\frac{ 2m - 3 }{ 2m })a_{m-1} < 1\] For n=m+1 \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } + a_{2} + a_{3}+…+(\frac{ 2m - 3 }{ 2m })a_{m-1}+(\frac{ 2(m+1) - 3 }{ 2(m+1) })a_{m+1-1} < 1\] LHS= \[1 + (\frac{ 2(m+1) - 3 }{ 2(m+1) })a_{m}\] \[=(\frac{ 2m-1 }{ 2m+2 })(\frac{ 2m - 3 }{ 2m })a_{m-1}\]
