In mathematical Induction, sometimes two variables are given, such as:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"All positive integers n and all real numbers x >= -1."

My question is do you solve this normally and just keep x as itself or do you have to expand it like you do with n, making it k + 1 etc etc.

Thanks in advanced
