    Invariant Subspace proof

    I am having some trouble with part (ii) of the following question, part (i) is fine; Let V be a finite dimensional vector space and let f, g : V -> V be linear maps such that f∘g = id_V. Prove: (i) g∘f = id_V (ii) a subspace of V is f-invariant if and only if it is g-invariant I've tried the...

    Why this equation is true? Can someone explain?

    Can someone explain why this equation is true? I came up with it some time ago and did not understand why it's true: Is there some specific rule for that? Maxima CAS could not tell if it's true, but it is.(Surprised) \frac{2 \tan{\left( \frac{\alpha }{2}\right) }}{\tan{\left( \alpha \right)...

    Finding solution for natural logarithm equation

    Hi, Can someone please explain to me why when solving for $2\ln{x} + \ln{x+2} - \ln{x^2 + 2x} = -\ln{2}$ the solutions for x are 0, 1/2, and -2,but when you substitute these values back into the equation, only x = 1/2 works? There may be some elementary concept relating to systems of...

    Demonstration by Induction

    Hi, I've been trying to demonstrate this(Worried): I know that $d_1=1, d_2=10, d_3=50, d_4=248$ and for $n \geq 5 ,d_n = 5d_{n-1} - 4d_{n-4} $. Demonstrate for all $n \in \mathbb{N} $ that: $$P(n): d_n < n \cdot 3^{n+1}. $$ I need to demostre this using the induction principle. My doubt is...

    Algebraic manipulations and solutions

    Hi, Can someone help clarify why the solution to this expression does not result in both solutions equating to 2 when substituted in for x? I'm referring to when x = 4, since (4) + (4)^(1/2) does not equal 2. What is going on here? Please let me know! - otownsend

    Adding a fraction to a whole number in an algebraic equation

    Hello! :) I am going over another answer for a question on an online test: The only question I have is, how did they get 9/2? The way I'd go about solving this is making the -4 a -4/1, and then adding -1/2 to get 4/2. Where am I going wrong? Thanks in advanced! :) -Neo
