B Question about properties of sums and products

  1. May 15, 2016 #1
    Hi and sorry for bad english.


    I want to know if these properties are true

    and

    I did not find these properties in any place.
    so I guess it will be obvious or are incorrect,
    if incorrect I would like to see counterexamples.
    thanks

    Can you write these properties using an "if ... then" structure and not use the word "so"?

    Also, can you write basic definitions of ##a##, ##b##, ##f## and so on? Are we working in the real numbers? Or a general vector space? Or?

    a and b are any whole numbers (or infinity) , f(i), g(i),t(i),b(i) are any functions of i

    For the first case, it isn't always true.
    The Sum of x between 1 and 0 is 1, and the sum of x^2 between 1 and 0 is also one. We can generalise this to x^n where n is real and not equal to 0, this would produce the same answer between [0,1]
