    Ok, say I have an inequality...

    x_2n+1 < x_2n+3 < x_2n+4 < x_2n+2

    If I prove that x_2n+1 < x_2n+2 is true, is that the same as proving the entire inequality in four terms is true? Ie if I prove

    x_2n+1 < x_2n+2

    I have also proven

    x_2n+1 < x_2n+3 < x_2n+4 < x_2n+2

    Cheers

    k+1<k+3<k+4<k+2 isnt true

    They are sequences. It is true, but it doesnt matter what the inequality is...

    Say you had..

    a < b < c < d

    If I prove a < d do I consequentially prove a < b < c < d

    No, why would you? If you had a = 4 and d = 6, you could have b = \pi and c = 20349230940234, which obviously wouldn't satisfy the inequality.
