Without using Theorem 4.2.2, use mathematical induction to prove that
P(n): 1 + 5 + 9 + ... + (4n - 3) = n(2n - 1) for all integers n >= 1
Proof: n=1, P(1)=1=n(2n-1), so the statement is true for n=1.
Assume that the statement ...
This solution provides proof of the statement provided through mathematical induction.
