Induction is a specific technique that's most useful when you're trying to prove a result for positive integers and you're actually given the result that you're trying to prove.

Are you studying for UK A levels or some other course? If induction isn't covered in your textbook, google "principle of induction" or "mathematical induction" to get a start.
