1.Express

as the product of 2 factors, where neither of them is 1.

2. Express as the product of 2 factors, where neither of them is 1. Do not express these 2 factors explicitly.

3. What does equal?

4. Find all integers where n! is a multiple of n^2.

5. If 3 numbers are chosen at random from first 1000 natural numbers,what is the probability that the three numbers are in G.P.? All numbers are distinct.

6. prove that is true for all non negative integers.

Thickhead, could you explain the process on the inequality? I used a bit of Cauchy Schwarz on this.

I just wrote offhand. I had an obvious flash about cubes.Unless n is specified it becomes difficult to make exhaustive list.

bobbym is right. I had not thought properly.After knowing it it looks very simple. A composite number means at least two factors which make up for one "n" the other n being provided by the number itself. Perhaps I tried 4 and seeing it not correct went for 8 and made it a cube. Very unscientific thinking on my part.

Why is Mathegocart silent ?Is he too busy with other problems? One more thing instead of G.P. if the 3 numbers are in A.P. what is the probability for first 1000 natural numbers or even first n natural numbers?

You are correct, further simplification is possible. Normally, I do not automatically simplify all the way. There are good reasons for this but in this case they do not apply, further simplification was called for.
