True (T) or False (F)?
Q1. Mathematical induction is used to prove statements about all real numbers. ?
Q2. Mathematical induction differs form the kind of induction used in the experimental
sciences because it is actually a form of deductive reasoning.
Q3. A proof by mathematical induction involves an inductive step, where it is
shown that a statement P(k) about a natural number k is true only if the
statement P(k+1) about its successor k+1 is true.
Q4. For a proof by mathematical induction, it is sufficient to check one base case
explicitly.

I'm not absolutely sure about Q3  that statement must also be true for K = 1 so I think this is false.

yes I think it is false but looking at my notes and its all worded differently

you must prove that if the statement is true for a number kthen it is also true for k + 1 so if it is shown to be true for k = 1 then it must be tur for k = 2, 3 and so on
