would it be like induction proof from first principle : assume \(a_k = a_{k1} + a_{k2} + a_{k3}\lt 2^k\) and prove \(a_{k+1} \lt 2^k\)

I would do three cases for the base case. For a1,a2,and a3. You want to assume your statement is true for every integer out to some chosen integer value k and then you want to show it is true for k+1. So let's consider the case of k+1 \[a_{k+1}=a_k+a_{k1}+a_{k2}\] we need to look at a_(k1) and a_k So we know a_k<2^k and a_(k1)<2^(k1) by our assumption

oops and a_(k2) so we have also a_(k2)<2^(k2)

oh that makes sense 3 base cases ! and yes using second principle we have : \(a_{k} \lt 2^{k} \) \(a_{k1} \lt 2^{k1}\) \(a_{k2} \lt 2^{k2} \)

\(a_{k+1}=a_k+a_{k1}+a_{k2} \lt 2^k + 2^{k1} + 2^{k2}\)

yep good so far do you want to try to figure out the trick into showing <2^(k+1)?

I'm trying at the moment lol, need to make the right hand side 2^{k+1}

I used what I wanted to show to help me start out I don't know if that helps you

im getting right hand side as : \(2^{k2}(2^2 + 2 + 1) = 2^{k2}(7)\)

not sure how to conclude... only if that 7 was 8... :o

nipunmalhotra93 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
use 7<8
 5 months ago

rational Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
it has to be \(\ge 8 \) i think

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
I liked factoring out 2^(k+1) instead of 2^(k2) but you should be able to proceed as you are

and nip is right we want <

nipunmalhotra93 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you have your term <2^(k2) (7)<2^(k2) (8)=2^(k+1)

rational Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so far i have this : \(a_{k+1}=a_k+a_{k1}+a_{k2} \lt 2^k + 2^{k1} + 2^{k2} = 2^{k2}(7)\)

rational Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ohhh yess !

nipunmalhotra93 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yeah factoring out 2^(k+1) will do too.

thanks a lot that was easier than it looked initally to start wid lol xD

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
or I liked: \[a_{k+1}<2^k+2^{k1}+2^{k2}=2^{k+1}(2^{1}+2^{2}+2^{3}) \] \[=2^{k+1}(\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{4}+\frac{1}{8})=2^{k+1}(\frac{4+2+1}{8})=2^{k+1}\frac{7}{8}<2^{k+1} \frac{8}{8}=2^{k+1}(1)=2^{k+1}\] Both ways are cute
 5 months ago

myininaya Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
both ways require you to know 7<8 that is interesting

hey rational here is another proof you can look at that has the same style we just worked with http://php.scripts.psu.edu/djh300/cmpsc360/exstronginduction.htm
