I was trying to show that since the $n$ equality happens at $n=\frac{1}{2}$ the inequality doesn't "swap". Namely, the greater one at $n=0$ remains the greater one for $n>0$. Similarly, the greater one at $n=1$ remains the greater one for $n<1$. This just gives definite information on which number is greater for some $n$. So it means $(1)^{i} > (1)^{i}$ for the sheets where $n \geq 0$
