• if u add 1 to both n and k, shouldn't u add 1 to 2?

• You are not adding 1. You are taking N' and K' to be your new N and K. You just want to make sure that $N'$ and $K'$ to be bigger than 2 so you can use the stated results.

• and what's the reason behind making n' = k' it was N>= K >= 2

• If you just replace $N$ by $N+1$ and $K$ by $N+1$ in (1.3) and (1.4) we get (1.5) and (1.6). I will edit the answer in a minute.

• Done.

• can u explain the reason why u made N' = K' >=2. It was initially N>= K >= 2

• N and K are just two general variables, and they can be replaced by any other variables.

• Also note that you still have N'>=K'>=2. We just know that N'=K' which also implies N'>=K'>=2.

The answer is accepted.
