Non-linear Differential Equation Word Problem

Two chemicals A and B are combined to form a chemical C. The rate of the reaction is proportional to the product of the instantaneous amounts of A and B not converted to chemical C. Initially there are 40 grams of A and 50 grams of B, and for each gram of B, 2 grams of A are used. It is observed that 10 grams of C are formed

Numerical Linear Algebra/Norms

Based on the parallelogram law, show that the norms ||.||_1 (1-norm) and ||.||_infinity (infinity or maximum norm) in R^2 are not induced by any inner product. Parallelogram Law: ||u+v||^2 + ||u-v||^2 = 2||u||^2 + 2||v||^2. ||x||_1: = sum i = 1 to n of |x_i| ||x||_infinity := max ( 1 =< i =< n)|x_i|.
