 P: 920 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Let m be a natural number. Find the flaw in the statement below. Explain why the statement is not valid, and change one symbol to correct it. "If T is a set of natural numbers such that 1) m $$\in$$ T and 2) n $$\in$$ T implies n+1 $$\in$$ T, then T = {n $$\in$$ N : n ≥ m} 2. Relevant equations Dunno. 3. The attempt at a solution Part 2) of the if statement tells us that T is an infinite set. I'm not sure exactly how 1) and 2) are connected. Hmmmm ... Help me get started.

Hmmm ...

T is going to look something like {k, k+1, k+2, ...}, where k≥1 is an integer. That's basically what the second condition tells me.

m is some element in T. That's all I know about m. Could m-1 be in T? As long as m>k.

 Emeritus Sci Advisor PF Gold P: 4,500 Let m be a natural number ... So is their equation for T correct?
