    This proof cannot be a perfect square, correct?

    All right, I have to prove that $$ 8-3x_1 ^2 $$ can not be a perfect square given that x\in \mathbb Q. x is rational is the key point. So, here goes my proof Let 8-3x_1 ^2 be a perfect square and therefore , let $$ 8 -3x_1 ^2 = \frac{p^2}{q^2}~~~~~~~~~(\textrm{such that p and q doesn't have...

    functions, relations, injective,...

    Hello there, I'm new to the kind of math you have to prove, so be patient ^^ Are there any improvements I could make here? In the following, I will talk about $Z$ as a ring. More specifically I consider $(Z,+,\times)$ a commutative and unitary ring, where $Z = \{...,-2,-1,0,1,2,...\}$. I...

    Proof of sample variance formula

    This formula should be checked for i+1: s_{i}^2= \frac{1}{i-1}\sum\limits_{k=1}^{i} (x_k-\bar{x}_i)^2 The result should be this: s_{i+1}^2=\left(1-\frac{1}{i}\right)s_{i}^2+(i+1)(\bar{x}_{i+1}-\bar{x}_{i})^2 Assumed as known, this is...

    Easy proof of 22/7>pi

    Let x=22/7-\pi\; and suppose 22/7<\pi or x<0. Since x is negative then sgn(x)=-1+2H(x)<0. sgn(x)=-1+2\lim_{s\rightarrow \infty} \frac{1}{1+e^{-sx}}=-1+2\lim_{t_s \rightarrow \infty} \frac{1}{1+e^{t_s x}}. Since the limit of 1+e^{-sx} converges then : sgn(x)=-1+2=1 which is a contradiction...

    Help with a proof

    Hey guys. I found out that a Σ2n n=1 EQUALS [a^2 - a] However, although I can see that it works, I can't figure out why this is true. Can anyone figure this out?

    Proof of e^x, lnx and e as limit without circular dependency?

    People prove the derivative of e^x, \ln(x) using either the formula of e = \lim_{x \to 0} (1+x) ^ \frac{1}{x} or if they know one of the derivatives e^x, \ln(x) they use it to prove the other. My textbook first gave me without proof that \frac{d}{dx}e^x = e^x Then it found the limit of \ln(x)...

    Proof of goldbach's conjecture

    PROOF OF GOLDBACH’S CONJECTURE Goldbach’s conjecture states that every even integer > 2 is the sum of 2 primes. An example is 100 = 3 + 97 = 11 + 89 = 17 + 83 = 29 + 71 = 41 + 59 = 47 + 53. An alternative statement of the conjecture is as follows. Every integer > 3 is the arithmetic mean of...
