i) As given terms are in HP, let (1/a), (1/H1), (1/H2), ---- (1/Hn), (1/b) are in AP 
[Total there are (n+2) terms and 'n' means] 

ii) ==> (1/b) = (1/a) + (n + 1)d, where d is the common difference of AP 
Solving d = (a - b)/(ab(n + 1)} 

iii) ==> 1/H1 = 1/a + d = (b*n + a)/{ab(n + 1)} 
==> H1 = ab(n + 1)/(b*n + a) 

==> H1/a = (b*n + b)/(b*n + a) 

Applying compenendo & dividendo property of ratios and simplifying, 
[If a/b = c/d, then (a+b)/(a-b) = (c+d)/(c-d)], 

(H1 + a)/(H1 - a) = (2b*n + a + b)/(b - a) 

iv) In similar process, taking 1/Hn = (1/b) - d 

we get, (Hn + b)/(Hn - b) = (2a*n + a + b)/(a - b) = -(2a*n + a + b)/(b - a) 

v) So from the above, adding (iii) & (iv), 

[(H1 + a)/(H1 - a)] + [(Hn + b)/(Hn - b)] = (2b*n + a + b - 2a*n - a - b)/(b - a) 

= 2n(b - a)/(b - a) = 2n 

Thus it is proved that [(H1 + a)/(H1 - a)] + [(Hn + b)/(Hn - b)] = 2n
