    3. The attempt at a solution


    b) i've discovered there are |_ n/k _| + 1 terms on the RHS (|_ _| is the floor thing)
    but besides that i'm stuck. thinking of using induction but just can't see it

    c) i also think this is done by induction, i got the base case done but can't show inductive step.

    d+) help :(
