Problem Set 7 (partial) Due: 10/27/2017. Board presentation: 11/??/2017

  1. Prove the corollary to Prop. 6.25: Let $a,b\in\Z$, $n\in\N$ and $k\geq 0$. If $a \equiv b \pmod{n}$ then $a^k \equiv b^k \pmod{n}$. (Hint: induction on $k$)
  2. Prove Prop. 8.6

Problem Set 6 (complete) Due: 10/13/2017. Board presentation: 10/20/2017

  1. Let $f_n$ be the $n$-th Fibonacci number. Prove by induction on $n$ that \[ \sum_{j=1}^n f_{2j} = f_{2n+1}-1 \]
  2. Find and write down all the partitions on a 4-element set $A=\{a,b,c,d\}$. How many equivalence relations are there on $A$?
  3. Prove Prop. 6.15
  4. Prove Prop. 6.16
