i havent done p6 but proof by induction i think is proving something works with a number, n, then proving it works with the next number n+1 you can say that it will work for all other numbers.

or something like that
3. And can someone tell me what the hell is 'proof by inducation'?

Proof by induction:
(1)Assume the statement is true for n = k .
(2) Use this assumption to show that it logically follows that the statement will be true for n = k + 1.
(3) {Important as this step is often omitted}. Show that statement is true for n = 1. => true for all n.

Sometimes, but not always, you have to start at n > 1.
For example, prove, by induction that 2^n > n^3. Well this is obviously not true for n=1, or n=2,... It doesn't become true until n=10.
So you have to start by showing that it is true for n=10, then do the n=k and n=k+1 bit

does anyone have p6??
6. P6 (Edexcel/MEI) is not offered in January.
7. Sometimes, but not always, you have to start at n > 1.
Yes, I should have added that we have to be on the lookout for the domain of n. n is usually a natural number in P6 Edexcel.
