(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

5^n + 9 < 6^n for all integers n>=2.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Induction proof.

Base Case: 5^(2) + 9 < 6^(2)

34<36

P(k): 5^k + 9 < 6^k

P(k+1): 5^(k+1) + 9 < 6^(k+1)

how do i prove p(k) can equal p(k+1)?
