Determining Correlation and Distribution

6) Suppose we have a building with a floor shaped like an isosceles right triangle. The two sides adjacent to the right triangle have length 100 feet. Think of the right angle being at the origin, and other two corners at (100, 0) and (0, 100). The overhead crane is located at the origin and needs to travel to a point (X, Y), w

Functions: Proof by Induction

Let n be a natural number, and let f(x) = x^n for all x are members of R. 1) If n is even, then f is strictly increasing hence one-to-one, on [0,infinity) and f([0,infinity)) = [0,infinity). 2) If n is odd, then f is strictly increasing, hence one-to-one, on R and f(R) = R. "This needs to be a proof by induction, provin

Central Extension Problem
