Exam Review 3 UPDATE

UDPATE 2 (11/5): The proof of #10 had a typo.
Near the end, after the line “Subtracting 504 from both sides”, the right side should end with a “-504” rather than “+504”. ¬†Similarly, in the next line, the final parentheses should end with “-56” rather than “+56”.

UPDATE: The answer key has been added to the review sheet – let me know if you find an error!

Hi everyone,

Be aware, there was typo in problem number #9. ¬†The left side of the equation should end in “n(n+2)” instead of “n(n+1)”. ¬†Apologies for this error!

Exam 2 Review UPDATE

Hi everyone,

Two things about the review sheet:

1. ¬†There is a typo in problem #5c — it should read |X|=3, instead of |A|=3.

2. As I told a number of you in my office today, I will NOT put a problem like #12 (There is no largest prime number) on the exam.

Best of luck with your studying,

Mr. Reitz

Exam Review 2 UPDATE – review of division and remainders

Hi everyone,

First, the answer key for the Exam 2 review is now complete (it follows the questions in the Review document).  Second, you will notice that there are a few places (especially in problems 8 and 12) that I use basic facts about remainders when one number is divided by another.  These are facts that you understand intuitively from working with dividing numbers, but it might help to have them stated explicitly.  This is the basic fact about dividing and remainders:

Fact (The Division Algorithm).  Given two integers a and b with b>0, there exist unique integers q and r for which a=qb+r and 0\leq r <b.

What does this mean?  It expresses the fact that when we divide one integer a by another integer b, and it will go in some number of times q with a remainder of r.  The remainder r must be less than the number b that we are dividing by.  If the remainder is zero, then b divides a (because r=0 means a=qb), and if the remainder is not zero, then b does not divide a.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment here.  Best of luck with your studying!

The review sheet is too darn long

This review sheet is rather long – because of this, I’ve marked certain problems ¬†as optional (denoted with a double asterisk **). ¬†If you have only a limited time for review, do the other problems first. ¬†If you have a little extra time, the ** problems are good practice.

Optional Problems:  1b, 2d, 4bf, 5efij, 6ae, 7c, 8d, 10a, 12b
