Adventures in Mathematics by Martin A Moskowitz

By Martin A Moskowitz

Although trouble-free in nature, this e-book bargains with primary matters in arithmetic — quantity, algebra, geometry (both Euclidean and non-Euclidean) and topology. those topics, on a sophisticated point, are a similar ones with which a lot of present mathematical study is worried and have been themselves examine subject matters of prior sessions. the fabric is especially appropriate either for complicated highschool scholars and for students drawn to trouble-free arithmetic from the next point of view. it's going to even be very beneficial to highschool academics looking an outline in their subject material.

8. M cannot be enumerated. Proof. This will be proved by contradiction. Suppose [0,1] can be enumerated. Let each real number between 0 and 1 be represented by a decimal. 0000... ) we select the terminating one. Let •%n,lZn,2%n,3 • • • %n,j • • • be the nth one. Chose a number between 0 and 9 which is different from x\\ and from 9 to be the first decimal of a real number in [0,1] we are in the process of constructing. Similarly, chose a number between 0 and 9 which is different from 22,2 a n d from 9 to be the second decimal.

Let k = x2 and I = y2. So our previous equation reads c + a = 2x2 and c — a = 2y2. By solving for c and a we have c = x2 + y2 and a = x2 — y2, and so b = 2xy. 17. -, an) contains all the primes that are involved in all aj's with the minimal exponent. ,an) =p\lpe22 •••pekk where ej = mm(eji:ej2,---ejn). Similarly the prime factorization of the 1cm is given by taking the maximal exponent. We can now prove the following generalization of the fact that y/2 is irrational. 32 Chapter 1 What is a Number?

To reiterate the situation, described earlier, a set R with an addition + and a multiplication • satisfying the above conditions and which also satisfies the distributive law is called a commutative ring with identity. In such a ring, we shall call an element x invertible if there is an element of the ring y in the ring such that xy = 1. It is easy to see that y is uniquely determined by x. For this reason we can write y = x _ 1 . Thus Z12 is a commutative ring with identity. The same may be said for Z n , where n > 2 as well as Z itself.
