In my maths textbook it asks to prove 2^n<=n! for all n>=4(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I could prove it no problems using induction but could show 2^n<n! without the equality inequality.

My question is why would the textbook ask for a weaker condition? Is it a misprint?

If I can show < then it automatically implies <= holds as well dosen't it?
