Induction on n

    In the attached file it says that the formula for when n=2 implies the next one but I don't understand why it suddenly became (s-t0)^2 inside the integral instead of (s-t0) in the next one and keeps this pattern, it doesn't seem to be implied anywhere for me.

    Your first image was posted sideways, so I deleted it, and edited your post accordingly. Many members will not bother responding if an image is of poor quality or upside-down or sideways.

    Please start a new thread with your question about the first image, and try to post the image so that it is oriented correctly.

    You get the second step in the inequality you ask about if you integrate the LHS and RHS of the previous inequality.
