Kurres exercises

Okey so here are my random exercises:
Solve the equations:
1.

2.

3. Give all solutions for x

where k is any integer

4.Find a function that satisfies

enjoy!

Re: Kurres exercises

Interesting property of this one, Kurre...

Given

When X = -1, then:

When X = 1, then:

If you substitute for f(-1), using the right-most side from f(x), x=-1, then:

So:

I like it.

Re: Kurres exercises

Actually i wasnt sure about the mathematics invloved in nr 4, it may need the condition |x|>1 (or |x|>p where p is somewhere between 1 and 2), but I decided to not post it at first because i wasnt sure

Re: Kurres exercises

Actually, with a bit of afterthought, I'm perfectly happy with f(1) - 1 = f(1) + 1.

#4 doesn't hold up to that, unfortunately, unless you say:
f(x) = √1
For f(-x) < 0, x = √0.5
For f(-x) > 0, x = √z (such that 1/z = 0)

But that means making up crazy new Maths where we define the inputs for functions based on the output and 0z = 1.

And what kind of oddball would want to do that...?
