Strong Induction

Main post link -> https://brilliant.org/assessment/techniques-trainer/strong-induction/

This week, we learn about a type of induction technique called Strong Induction (also known as the second principle of finite induction).

In case you missed it, our post on Mathematical Induction two weeks ago generated a discussion on different types of induction. Stay tuned as we learn about these induction techniques in future weeks!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Sir, 1.Where did the "Geometric inequalities" posted on the discussion page some days ago go? Why it isn't in the practice section? 2.Why do the posts of practice section not have any "test yourselves" ? Won't there be any in future? 3. Thanks a lot for posting excellent posts.
