Homework Help: Binomial theorem induction proof

  1. Apr 26, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Will someone be kind enough to check my proof (attached) of the following (also attached) theorem?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Oh, and as you might notice, I was beginning to run out of paper, but the binomial coefficients in the bracketed terms obviously simplify to ones in terms of r+1, as the problem statement clearly indicates.

    Look pretty ok to me. And sure, pointing out how the other terms are the r+1 coefficients would help.
