    Showing a Prime exists

    Professor decided to give more "optional" homework. Let A = {4k +1 | k ∈ Z^+ }. Show that there exists a prime p of A, and elements j, k, of A, such that p | (jk), but p does not divide j or k. In words: "Let A equal the set of elements of 4k+1, where k is an element of all positive integers...

    Why Do You Divide Bottom Denominator of Limit by -X When it Approach -Infinity?

    Hi everyone! I was doing a homework assignment involving limits today, and something came up that didn't make any sense at all to me. In the example for finding the lim (x-> -Infinity) (3x-2)/sqrt(2x^2+1), the examples says to divide both the numerator and denominator by x. It does this in a...

    Prove that n! does not divide n^n for n>2

    Dividing both sides by n, I get that (n-1)! | n^(n-1) => (n-1) | n^(n-1) but I'm stuck as to where to go next. Any help would be appreciated.

    Why can't I divide 2 to the other side in y+1=2square root/y+1?

    Why can't I divide 2 to the other side in y+1=2square root/y+1? I would like to get rid of the square root in y+1 by squaring it, but my answer sheet say I can't divide the 2 out but I just have to square it with the SR/y+1 to get y. Original problem: sr/2y+3-sr/y+1=1 I don't know where to find...
