"Prove each of the following using Mathematical induction;" show all steps

pleasee someone help.. i have a test on this tommorow and i just need some examples.. could you also try to show all steps including the words so i understand how you got there? thakns so much in advance~!

1. -1/2, -1/4, -1/8... -1/2^n = (1/(2^n))-1

2. a + (a+d)+(a+2d)+...+[a+(n-1)d] = (n/2)[2a+(n-1)d]

3. 1^3 + 2^3 + 3^3... + n^3 = (n^2(n+1)^2)/(4)

4. show that (3^(4n))-1 is dividislbe by 80 for all positive integral values of n
