Prove by induction. The sum from 1 to n of [tex]\frac{1}{\sqrt{i}}[/tex] [tex]\geq[/tex] [tex]\sqrt{n}[/tex].

2. Relevant equations

none.

3. The attempt at a solution

I verified the base case, and all of that, I just can't get to anything useful. I tried expanding the sum and adding the [tex]\frac{1}{\sqrt{n+1}}[/tex] but it didn't come to anything useful.

Thanks
