Prove equality

  1. Aug 24, 2010 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I'm studying an exercise and I got stuck. Indeed, I was asked to prove that:

    E((1+sqrt(3))(2n+1))=(1+sqrt(3))(2n+1)-(sqrt(3)-1)(2n+1)

    and I admit I haven't got a clue how to do it.

    Any indication is welcome!!

    This is a probability question? What distribution is involved?

    No, it's not a probability question actually. E is the integer part of a number.
