I need a mathematical proofHi Character is who you are when no one is looking. #2 20060929 22:50:28
Re: I need a mathematical proofAre there any restrictions on what a, b and n can be? Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20061007 00:48:35
Re: I need a mathematical proofThe only condition is a,b belong to Natural numbers. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #4 20061007 05:33:11
Re: I need a mathematical proofhmm if a=2 and b=3 and n=2 then 49=5 which isnt divisible by ab=1 and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa im getting confused! *Gets dizzy* it would of worked if i knew if 5 was divisible by 1 lol Presenting the Prinny dance. Take this dood! Huh doood!!! HUH DOOOOD!?!? DOOD HUH!!!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #5 20061007 05:57:59
Re: I need a mathematical proofShould be a simple proof by induction. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #6 20061007 17:10:44
Re: I need a mathematical proofYes, but that doesn't need to be an induction. will do X'(yXβ)=0 #7 20061007 17:12:24
Re: I need a mathematical prooffor instance, X'(yXβ)=0 #8 20061007 18:05:19
Re: I need a mathematical proofThanks George and Ricky, I shall study the proof you have given. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #9 20061008 03:58:51
Re: I need a mathematical proof
You know better than anyone George that an instance does not make a proof. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #10 20061008 15:15:23
Re: I need a mathematical proofI am looking forward to a clear proof by mathematical induction, a flawless elegant proof. Ricky, George and mathsyperon, help me. Help from any other source is most welcome. Character is who you are when no one is looking. #11 20061009 15:35:17
Re: I need a mathematical proof
Sure, I shall illustrate Post #6 in detail. Hence and Using notation, the proof would be: Hence t and k are indexes representing integars, so we can equate them when we do the following algebra. X'(yXβ)=0
