Give an example of a statement P(n)
Question:

Give an example of a statement P(n) which is true for all n ≥ 4 but P(1), P(2) and P(3) are not true. Justify your answer.

Solution:

According to the question,

P(n) which is true for all n ≥ 4 but P(1), P(2) and P(3) are not true

Let P(n) be 2n < n!

So, the examples of the given statements are,

P(0) ⇒ 20 < 0!

i.e 1 < 1 ⇒ not true

P(1) ⇒ 21 < 1!

i.e 2 < 1 ⇒ not true

P(2) ⇒ 22 < 2!

i.e 4 < 2 ⇒ not true

P(3) ⇒ 23 < 3!

i.e 8 < 6 ⇒ not true

P(4) ⇒ 24 < 4!

i.e 16 < 24 ⇒ true

P(5) ⇒ 25 < 5!

i.e 32 < 60 ⇒ true, etc.
