Mathematics OpenStudy (anonymous):

Estudier, here's my question. OpenStudy (anonymous): OpenStudy (anonymous):

i want to just point to the picture and say, "you did the work for me" OpenStudy (anonymous):

Pythagorus? OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh, it doesnt say it in the problem, but t_n are the triangular numbers, where: $t_n = \sum_{i=1}^{n}\space i$ OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yup, I got that...:-) OpenStudy (anonymous):

i just dont see what to write formally as an answer. I mean, the problem tells you how to solve it <.< all the work is there. OpenStudy (anonymous):

I suppose just use the formula for a proof, lol OpenStudy (anonymous):

lolol, i guess. OpenStudy (anonymous):

T_n-1 + Tn = n^2 OpenStudy (anonymous):

maybe i can use that. had to prove that for an earlier problem. OpenStudy (anonymous):

2 triangular numbers make a square number..... OpenStudy (anonymous):

Do u have to prove T_n? OpenStudy (anonymous):

right right. i dont think ive run into a problem that tells you how to solve it lol <.< I didnt have to prove what t_n was, that was done in the section as an example. OpenStudy (anonymous):

This question (im guessing) wants you to prove the formula for t_n in a different manner, by making that array of dots. OpenStudy (anonymous):

it just seems too......trivial though. i hate using that word =/ but it really is. OpenStudy (anonymous):

So T_n-1 + T_n = 1/2(n-1)n + 1/2(n+1)n = n^2 OpenStudy (anonymous):

i have class tomorrow, homework isnt due till monday. I'll voice my concerns to the professor. OpenStudy (anonymous):

There isn't much to do but this is typical number theory intro stuff, get u into proof mode.... OpenStudy (anonymous):

I suspect it will get harder quite quickly.. OpenStudy (anonymous):

There was another problem i was having trouble doing too. Prove that:$(x-y)|x^n-y^n$ by Mathematical Induction. Now, using the geometric formula its easy because: $x^n-y^n = (x-y)(x^{n-1}+x^{n-2}y+\ldots+y^{n-1})$so x-y always divides x^n-y^n. But how (or WHY?!?!) would you do it by induction? o.O its like making a mountain out of a mole hill >.> OpenStudy (anonymous):

Just to practice induction, I guess...:-) They use a lot in number theory. OpenStudy (anonymous):

*sigh* i guess. well, im gonna get back to work on this then. i'll ask about it during class as well lol. thanks :) OpenStudy (anonymous):

Here is a harder one, get a formula for the k'th polygonal number. OpenStudy (anonymous):

oo, that sounds interesting lol OpenStudy (anonymous): OpenStudy (anonymous):

kth n-gon number? OpenStudy (anonymous):

Get P(k,n) the nth k-gonal number. OpenStudy (anonymous):

or that lolol OpenStudy (anonymous):

I knew what I wanted to say and mouth got into gear before brain.... OpenStudy (anonymous):

i understood it as well lol. im gonna think about that. need to finish the homeworks first though.
