 Base Case:(n = 1) by substituting a 1 for every n on the left side by expanding the summation its one term =================== 31 − 1 by sustituting a 1 for every n on the right side = 3 − 1 = 2 Inductive Hypothesis:(n = k) Inductive Step :(n = k + 1) Show: Proof: the left hand side of the equality we want to prove by splitting the sum by expanding the sum on the right its one term by the induction hypothesis by combining like terms by adding exponents on the 3’s QED
