Problems in books that say "Show that" or "Derive this" does that qualify as a "Proof"? I spend most of my study time working on the "Show that" problems. Are these the types of problems similar to the problems found in upper level classes(like Analysis)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks.
