Prove by induction that for an integer n where n>1 , http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/5642/prob1q.jpg [Broken]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Prove P(2) is true

then prove P(x) = P(x+1) is true, then it's true for all x

That's all I really from proof by induction. It's just not very intuitive to me at all.
