    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Proof that for n>2 and n is a natural number it holds that



    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    My best approach was to split the product over the fraction and then to arrive at a statement that looks like


    I then tried to prove by induction that this statement holds but that doesn't really work. The best result I got (for n+1) is then


    But I can't do anything usefuel with that...

    You could try writing the product as the exponential of a sum, and then bounding the sum by an integral.
