Step 1

1 of 7a) To prove the result, we will use strong induction since during the induction step, we will need to rely on the results for several smaller numbers than the current one.

Start with the induction basis, i.e. the smallest natural number $1$ which can obviously be represented uniquely as a sum of powers of $2$ since $1=2^0$.
