Re: Kurre's Exercises

Hmm. Maybe the software has changed then. I'm certain it used to be possible that way.
(It's how I changed the title, but I probably follow different rules)

Good point about my answer, I forgot about that detail. I can tweak it though!

You can edit a thread title for something like the first five minutes after you start the thread; after that period, you cant edit the title any more (except for moderators).

I know, its hard for moderators to know all the problems that non-moderators go through. neutral

#12
Let n be an integer with m prime factors (not necessarily distinct). suppose d|n and define

where
and
are the multiplicities for p in the prime factorization for n and d respectively. Show that:

and determine when equality occurs.

Re: Kurre's Exercises

Hi Kurre;

  I have been working very hard on your #7. I will continue to work on it, but in case I don't get there after a couple of weeks more. I would very much like to see your method.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

divides the determinant of a
matrix in which each positive integer less than and coprime with
appears exactly once in each row and in each column.
