1 AnswerHomework Help8 years ago### Help with equivalence classes?

For the set X={m,n.p,q,r,s}, let R be the relation on P(X) (power set) given by A R B iff A and B have the same number of elements. List all the elements in {m}/R (equivalence class); in {m,n,p,q,r,s}/R. How many elements are in X/R? How many elements are in P(X)/R?

It certainly makes logical sense, I'm just not sure how to write it as a proof...

Thanks.

1 AnswerMathematics10 years ago### Prove that if p is a prime number and p is not equal to 3, then 3 divides p^2 + 2.?

Prove that if p is a prime number and p is not equal to 3, then 3 divides p^2 + 2. (Hint: When p is divided by 3, the remainder is either 0,1, or 2. That is, for some integer k, p = 3k or p = 3k + 1 or p = 3k + 2.)

I thought you might do three cases with the three values of p in the hint, plugging them into p^2+2. In two of the cases you get a p^2+2=3a (a some integer) form but for p=3k you do not. Am I approaching this wrong?

5 AnswersMathematics10 years ago### Prove that if x and y are nonnegative real numbers, then (x+y)/2 ≥ sqrt(xy).?

Prove that if x and y are nonnegative real numbers, then (x+y)/2 ≥ sqrt(xy).

Use the technique of working backward from the desired conclusion. Where in the proof do we use the fact that x and y are nonnegative?

2 AnswersPolitics1 decade ago### Calc III-find an equation of the plane?

The plane contains the lines given by (x-1)/-2 = y = z+1 and (x+1)/-2 = y-1 = z-2.

I'm confused. Do you need to take the cross product of the lines first? If so, how do you do that? Thanks.

2 AnswersOther - Social Science1 decade ago### Nietzsche and religion?

We're learning about Nietzsche. I know that he believes suffering improves us, and is therefore good. I have in my notes that one of the reasons he criticizes religion (and Christianity in particular) is that it tries to eliminate suffering. Which he would obviously consider bad.

But I'm confused as to how religion tries to eliminate suffering. Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks.

11 AnswersReligion & Spirituality1 decade ago### Calculus problem- integrals?

Solve for x: Integral from 0 to x (t^3 - 2t + 3)dt = 4

I thought you would just differentiate both sides (getting x^3 - 2x +3 = 0) and then just solve for x, but that is not the correct answer. The correct answers are x = 1.63052 and x = -3.09131. Can someone explain how to get those answers? Thanks.

2 AnswersMathematics1 decade ago### Do you think my idea for a college application essay is appropriate?

The essay question is to tell about a "lesson you have learned in your life that you will want to share with others."

My idea is that instead of looking at the whole picture and becoming overwhelmed, you should focus on the smaller steps you can take to reach your goal. That is a more effective strategy.

Do you think that sounds like a reasonable answer? If not, why not.

Thanks.

13 AnswersHigher Education (University +)1 decade ago### Are my answers correct? Please check.?

In the guinea pig, one locus involved in the control of coat color may be occupied by any of cour alleles: C(black), ck(sepia), cd(cream), and ca(albino). C>ck>cd>ca In the following cross, write the parental genotypes and predict the phenotypic ratios that would result.

sepia X cream, where the sepia pig had an albino parent and the cream pig had two sepia parents.

Is my answer correct? sepia parent= ckca, cream parent= cdcd or cdca, and the ratios are 1:1 and 2:1:1.

Or would there only be one ratio of 3:2:1?

Thank you so much.
