# Mathematical induction – Further Maths Paper 1

Candidates should be able to:

• use the method of mathematical induction to establish a given result (questions set may involve divisibility tests and inequalities, for example);
• recognise situations where conjecture based on a limited trial followed by inductive proof is a useful strategy, and carry this out in simple cases e.g. find the $$n$$th derivative of $$xe^x$$.
