Factor Group and Torsion Group

Heres my problem. Consider the group <R,+> (reals under addition) and its normal subgroups Z (integers) and Q (rationals0. (These are normal because R is abelian, of course.) (i) Find an element of Q/Z of order 350. (ii) Show that Q/Z is the torsion subgroup of R/Z. This problem is quite straightforward if you use the defini

Matrix Algebra - Definite vs. Indefinite

Let A be an nxn symmetric matrix such that det {see attachment}. We know from the matrix algebra that the associated quadratic form {see attachment}, where x = (x1,...xn), is either positive-definite, negative- definite or indefinite. Now assume the diagonal entries of A are all zero. Explain why q(x) is indefinite. (Hint:
