I'm kind of confused by this post.
Here's my understanding of induction,
Your proving that it's true for when n = 2, then your assuming it's true for any number n, then you have to prove that if n is true, then n + 1 is true, and so on.
Your basically proving that it's true for all n > 1...
Thank's alot for your help Mark, you really steered me in the right direction here.
I proved that when n=2 the sum was rational using a/b + c/d etc etc etc, but after i assume that when n=n , for all natural numbers the sum is rational, isn't that as far as you'd think i would have to go? I...
