Hi, all.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm working on some proof by induction problems. While I understand the concept, this one threw me for a loop.

Let [tex]x_1=\sqrt{2}[/tex] and [tex]x_{n+1}=\sqrt{2+x_n}[/tex]

Show that [tex]x_n < x_{n+1}[/tex]

I'd greatly appreciate help with this.

Thanks,

bailey
