So far I've done the following:
which turns into
and now I don't understand how I can turn the last 2 terms into
EDIT: In your argument above, the indices i<j and i<j<k run only upto a, NOT upto a+1, so you actually need to show something more complicated than that the last two terms turn into (which I imagine is probably false in general).
A good idea is to note that is a union of events so you can use the inductive hypothesis again.Last edited by theOldBean; 06-10-2017 at 14:54.
