Problem 4E

Let P(n) be the statement that 13 + 23+ ???+n3(n + 1)/2)2 for the positive integer n.a) What is the statement P(1)?________________b) Show that P(1) is true, completing the basis step of the proof.________________c) What is the inductive hypothesis?________________d) What do you need to prove in the inductive step?________________e) Complete the inductive step, identifying where you use the inductive hypothesis.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 6

The statement P(1)

We have 1 cubed plus 2 cubed plus..... plus n cubed equals open parentheses fraction numerator n open parentheses n plus 1 close parentheses over denominator 2 end fraction close parentheses squared

Substitute n=1 in the above equation

To get 1 cubed equals open parentheses fraction numerator 1 open parentheses 1 plus 1 close parentheses over denominator 2 end fraction close parentheses squared
P open parentheses 1 close parentheses colon 1 cubed equals open parentheses fraction numerator 1 open parentheses 1 plus 1 close parentheses over denominator 2 end fraction close parentheses squared
