P(n): 2 + 4 + 8 + ... + 2n = 2(n + 1)  2 P(k): 2 + 4 + 8 + ... + 2k = 2(k + 1)  2 P(1): 2 + 4 + 8 + ... = 2n = 2(1 + 1)  2

P(k): 2 + 4 + 8 + ... + 2k = 2(k + 1)  2 replace k by k+1 P(k+1):2 +4+8+2(k+1)=2(k+1+1)2

So P(k + 1): 2 + 4 + 8 + 2(k + 1) = 2(k + 1 + 1)  2???

Where would that go? P(k + 1): 2 + 4 + 8 + ... + 2(k + 1) = 2(k + 1 + 1)  2 Is that right?
