Theory of Numbers : Fibonacci Number

Suppose that F1 = 1, F2 = 1, F3 =1, F4 = 3, F5 = 5, and in general Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2 for n ≥ 3 ( Fn is called the nth Fibonacci number.) Prove that F1 + F2 + F3 +...+ Fn = F(n + 2) - 1

Theory of Numbers - Primitive Root

Legendre Polynomials

17. The first three Legendre polynomials are P0(x) =1 , P1(x) = x and P2(x)=1/2(3x^2-1). If x = cos &#952;, then P0(cos &#952;)=1 and P1(cos &#952;)= cos &#952;. Show that p2(cos &#952;)= 1/4(3 cos 2&#952; +1). Book:- Differential Equations, by Dennis G Zill, page ,number 17.

Abstract Algebra (4 year College)

I had to prove 4 theorems two of them dealt with Abelian elements, automorphism of R2 under compontentwise addition. I want to keep my original work in tack as possble BUT I would like the follwing corrections made based on the following comments. THESE ARE THE ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED The paper needs to provide

Synthetic Division, Functions, and Interest

A geologist you spoke with is concerned about the rate of land erosion around the base of a dam. Another geologist is studying the magma activity within the earth in an area of New Zealand known for its volcanic activity. One of the shortcuts they apply when doing calculations in the field is to use synthetic division. After t
