Great mathematician, I hail o.
We have this little problem that has been bothering us
for sometime;

Take any positive integer n. If n is even, divide it by 2 to get n / 2. If n is odd, multiply it by 3 and add 1 to obtain 3n + 1. Repeat the process.

For example let's take 6, an even number, 6/2 =3, 3 is odd so we multiply it by 3 and add 1 to obtain 10,
10/2=5, 5 is odd, multiply it by 3 and add 1 to obtain 16, 16/2=8, 8/2=4, 4/2=2, 2/2=1.
We ended up with 1.

Now let's start with 3, an odd number,(3 * 3)+1 =10, 10/2=5, (5 * 3)+1 =16, 16/2=8, 8/2=4, 4/2=2, 2/2=1.
We also ended up with 1.

The problem is can you help us find a starting number that will not end up with 1
after going through the process. You can use a proof or something, or you can
give a mathematical proof that any starting number will always yield 1 in the end.

Thank you.
See this wicked person oh...

You went to bring Collatz conjecture that even the greats havent proven grin

No solution exists when x,y,z are all real numbers.

That is my conclusion.

Don't assume too much, there are solutions to that system above. You can solve it using the method of symmetric polynomials.

.sir can you pls help me with this...
vector space had our first class on the topic 2dae
1.show dat the set of all other n-turple forms a vector space over a field f.
2.show that the set of all mxn matrixes with their element as a real numbers is a vector space over the field f,with respect to addition of matrix nd multiplication of matrix by a scalar as scalar multiplication
3.let v be the set of other pair numbers,show dat v is not a vector space with respect to the following,in respect to addition nd scalar multiplication...linear algebra...nd sir what textbook can you reconmend for me to study under this topic

He is not qualified to be a lecturer if that's the case.

Good evening gurus in the house.

Please, which good book on Real Analysis would you recommend for self-study? Assume no previous knowledge on the subject. Thus, it must be explanatory enough for a novice to understand.

Thanks as I await your responses.

Bosses in the house please assist me on these questions





1. If tan 2θ = 5. a) find tan θ b) Solve cos2θ + sinθ for 0≤θ≤360
2. Resolve into partial fractions
a) X2 +x+2/x2 (x2 +3)2
b) x +a/x2(x-a) (x2 –a2)
3. find the binomial expansion of √(1+x) in increasing power of x up to the term in x4
4. prove that the trigonometric identity 1/ (1 +tan2x)2 + (cot2 x)/ (1+cot2 x)2 = cos2 x
5. find all the values of z = 6413
