Example 3 For all n β₯ 1, prove that 1/1.2 + 1/2.3 + 1/3.4 +β¦β¦.+ 1/(π(π + 1)) = 1/(π + 1) Let P (n) : 1/1.2 + 1/2.3 + 1/3.4 +β¦β¦.+ 1/(π(π + 1)) = 1/(π + 1) For n=1, L.H.S = 1/1.2 = 1/2 R.H.S = 1/(1+1) = 1/2 Hence, L.H.S. = R.H.S , β΄ P(n) is true for n = 1 Assume P(k) is true 1/1.2 + 1/2.3 + 1/3.4 +β¦β¦.+ 1/(π(π+1)) = π/(π+1) We will prove that P(k + 1) is true. R.H.S = ((k + 1))/(((k + 1)+ 1) ) L.H.S =1/1.2 + 1/2.3 + 1/3.4 +β¦β¦.+ 1/((k + 1)((k + 1)+ 1)) β΄ By the principle of mathematical induction, P(n) is true for n, where n is a natural number
