Prove the well-ordering Axiom by strong induction.

I know the formula Rate x Time = Distance. However, I have a question where I am asked to find the time and not the distance? Can you give me some basic information about how to calculate the time using this formula or is there a different formula that I should be using? Thanks.

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

At Very Long Hotel in Florida, there are n rooms located along a very long corridor and numbered consecutively from 1 to n. One night after a party, n people, who have been likewise numbered from 1 to n, arrived at this hotel and proceeded as follows: Guest 1 opened all the doors. Then Guest 2 closed every second door beginnin

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
