Now here is an interesting idea I have never explored. Can we get Mathematical Induction purely out of geometry? Now dull people reading this are going to misunderstand the question completely. The question concerns whether Euclid in his book of geometry could have discovered mathematical induction, rather than have to wait for Algebra to do it in the 1800s.
