    What is infinity?

    To answer the original question without all the hoo-hah...I believe that it was put to me as simply "infinity is a way to describe the behavior of certain sequence of numbers". Thus it should not be thought of as a number such as 1 or 2. I hope this is sufficient for generally grasping the...

    More primes

    Oh yeah...makes sense now... you da man how about.... gcd(r^s, s^r) = 1 same scenario... Could I say something like, r divides r^s, but s does not...and s dvides s^r but r does not..thus the gcd is 1?

    Well, I would never want to hire someone who made a career of the military..being a fellow Veternarian myself, I know them types. I would, however, not discriminate against someone based on where they were educated at. As far as I and the law are concerned, that is illegal. In fact, your...

    More primes

    Ok..I'm afraid I'm not following...d = 1 in this case. 1 divides anything. So how is that 1 dividing rs - r(r + s) and rs - s(r + s) show that the gcd(rs, r + s) = 1. Wouldn't we have to show that 2 isn't a divisor, then 3 isn't a divisor?

    More primes

    I saw this on a website. Prove that if r and s are positive integers with r > s and gcd(r,s)=1, then gcd(rs , r + s)= 1. I can think of two ways to show this. Using the Euclidean algorithm or by showing that 1 can be a linear combination of rs and r + s. Funny thing...I couldn't do either...

    I must say I'm ashamed at some of the responses of this post.. you say first year uni about telling us what class this for first (I didn't know linear algebra was supposed to be first year)? I doubt that the students need a pre-req of knowing what a linear combination is when...

    Graph theory (connectedness)

    Come on know what the typical C_n refers to...shall I change my example to the Wheel graph? or perhaps the path graph? I would like to know (using ordinal numbers) why exactly induction would absolutely be necessary if that's what you want to show me.

    Graph theory (connectedness)

    A cycle graph is a graph on n nodes containing a single cycle through all nodes. The reason I bring this up is because I think I saw something the other day that said if every vertex of a graph G had something like at least (n-1)/2 degrees then it was connected.

    Graph theory (connectedness)

    I remember when I was taking discrete analysis of data structures and we had to prove certain graph theory properties. I'll give a specific example, prove that the cycle graph, C_n, is connected for all n. From what I remember, it was induction we used to prove this...what I want to know...

    Wireless Antenna Strength

    So I wanted let's say a PCI card or USB. I could just look at the receiver sensitivity and find one in which the dBm is more negative and that card would essentially pick up my wireless network...let's on the other end of my house better than the PCMCIA card I gave a link to above?
