Lowest Common Multiple (Prime Factorizations)

Let a and b be integers. A common multiple of a and b is an integer n for which a|n and b|n. We call an integer m the least common multiple of n provided (1) m is positive, (2) m is a common multiple of a and b, and (3) if n is any other positive common multiple of a and b, then n [greater than or equal to] m. The notation fo

Induction Proof: Strings of Digits

If n >= 1, the number of strings using the digits 0,1, and 2 with no two consecutive places holding the same digit, is 3x2^n-1. For example, there are 12 such strings of length three: 010, 012, 020, 021, 101, 102, 120, 121, 201, 202, 210, and 212. Prove this claim by induction on the length of the strings. Is the formula tr

A system of two springs in series and parallel.

Prove that there is no bijection between any set A and its power set P(A) of A.

There is no bijection between any set A and its power set P(A) of A. For finite sets, proof is trivial since |A| = n and |P(A)| = 2^n. For finite sets, this is done by contradiction. Suppose there is a bijection $ between a set A and its power set P(A). Consider the set B={x|x is a member A where x is not a member $(x)}For e
