Suggested Solutions
1. (a) Let 𝑃(𝑛) be a proposition for 𝑛 ∈ ℕ. Let 𝑘, 𝑙 ∈ ℕ. If the following two
propositions hold:
1. 𝑃(𝑘) is true.
2. 𝑃(𝑘) ∨ 𝑃(𝑘 + 1) … ∨ 𝑃(𝑙) is true implies 𝑃(𝑙 + 1) is true
Then 𝑃(𝑛) is true for all natural numbers 𝑛 ≥ 𝑘.

## (i) Let 𝑛 be the amount of postage of stamps, 𝑛 ∈ ℕ. Open statement:

𝑝(𝑛): ∀𝑛 ≥ 30, ∃𝑠, 𝑡 ∈ ℕ ∪ {0} such that 𝑛 = 4𝑠 + 11𝑡.

(ii) Basis step: 𝑝(𝑛) is true for 𝑛 = 30, 31, 32, 33.
𝑝(30): 30 = 4(2) + 11(2), hence 𝑝(30) is true.
𝑝(31): 31 = 4(5) + 11(1), hence 𝑝(31) is true.
𝑝(32): 32 = 4(8) + 11(0), hence 𝑝(32) is true.
𝑝(33): 33 = 4(0) + 11(3), hence 𝑝(33) is true.

## Proof: Assume that ∃𝑠, 𝑡 ∈ ℕ ∪ {0} such that 𝑛 = 4𝑠 + 11𝑡. Then

𝑝(𝑛 + 4) = 𝑛 + 4 = 4𝑠 + 4 + 11𝑡 = 4(𝑠 + 1) + 11𝑡
Since 𝑠 ∈ ℕ ∪ {0}, 𝑠 + 1 ∈ ℕ ∪ {0} and thus 𝑝(𝑛 + 4) is true.

## (b) 𝑆 is a relation on 𝐴 if 𝑆 is a subset of the Cartesian product 𝐴×𝐴.

Since (3)(3) = 9, 3 /𝑆 3, so 𝑆 is not reflexive.
𝑥𝑦 = 𝑦𝑥 for 𝑥, 𝑦 ∈ ℝ. If 𝑥𝑦 is even, then 𝑦𝑥 is also even.
Since 𝑥 𝑆 𝑦 implies 𝑦 𝑆 𝑥, 𝑆 is symmetric.
3(2) = 6, (2)(5) = 10, (3)(5) = 15.
Since 3 𝑆 2 and 2 𝑆 5 but 3 /𝑆 5, 𝑆 is not transitive.
(c) 𝑝(𝑥) = 𝑥 5 + 5𝑥 4 + 8𝑥 3 + 40𝑥 2 + 16𝑥 + 80
Possible values of 𝑎: ± 1
Possible values of 𝑏: ± 1, ±2, ±4, ±5, ±8, ±10, ±16, ±20, ±40, ±80
Hence by rational root theorem, possible rational roots are
±1, ±2, ±4, ±5, ±8, ±10, ±16, ±20, ±40, ±80.
𝑝(−5) = 0, hence 𝑥 + 5 is a factor.
𝑝(𝑥) = (𝑥 + 5)(𝑥 4 + 8𝑥 2 + 16) = (𝑥 + 5)(𝑥 2 + 4)2

## Applying the law of cosines on the triangle above:

|𝑧 + 𝑤|2 = |𝑧|2 + |𝑤|2 − 2|𝑧||𝑤| cos 𝜃
Since cos 𝜃 ≥ −1 and |𝑧|, |𝑤| ≥ 0:
−2|𝑧||𝑤| cos 𝜃 ≤ 2|𝑧||𝑤|
|𝑧 + 𝑤|2 − |𝑧|2 − |𝑤|2 ≤ 2|𝑧||𝑤|
|𝑧 + 𝑤|2 ≤ |𝑧|2 + |𝑤|2 + 2|𝑧||𝑤|
|𝑧 + 𝑤|2 ≤ (|𝑧| + |𝑤|)2
Since |𝑧 + 𝑤|, |𝑧| + |𝑤| ≥ 0, square rooting both sides give:
|𝑧 + 𝑤| ≤ |𝑧| + |𝑤|
Replacing 𝑤 with 𝑤 − 𝑧 in the above equation yields:
|𝑧 + 𝑤 − 𝑧| ≤ |𝑧| + |𝑤 − 𝑧|
|𝑤| − |𝑧| ≤ |𝑤 − 𝑧|
Since |𝑎| = | − 𝑎| for 𝑎 ∈ ℂ, |𝑤 − 𝑧| = |𝑧 − 𝑤|;
|𝑤| − |𝑧| ≤ |𝑧 − 𝑤|

3. (a) Assume that the inverse of 𝐴 is not unique. Hence let 𝐵 and 𝐶 both be
inverses of 𝐴. Then we have
𝐴𝐵 = 𝐵𝐴 = 𝐼𝑛 and 𝐴𝐶 = 𝐶𝐴 = 𝐼𝑛
𝐵 = 𝐵𝐼𝑛 = 𝐵(𝐴𝐶) = (𝐵𝐴)𝐶 = 𝐼𝑛 (𝐶) = 𝐶
Since 𝐵 = 𝐶, if 𝐴 is invertible then its inverse is unique.

(b) 𝐴𝐵 = 𝐵𝐴

(i) There exist constants 𝑐1 , 𝑐2 , 𝑐3 , … , 𝑐𝑛 ∈ ℝ such that 𝑣 can be expressed as
𝑐1 𝑣1 + 𝑐2 𝑣2 + 𝑐3 𝑣3 + ⋯ + 𝑐𝑛 𝑣𝑛

## (ii) The only solution to the system of equations

## (d) (−1, −4,5) = 𝑐1 (1,4, −1) + 𝑐2 (0,3, −4) + 𝑐3 (−1,2, −3)

= (𝑐1 − 𝑐3 , 4𝑐1 + 3𝑐2 + 2𝑐3 , −𝑐1 − 4𝑐2 − 3𝑐3 )
Equating each component,
𝑐1 − 𝑐3 = −1 − (1)
4𝑐1 + 3𝑐2 + 2𝑐3 = −4 − (2)
−𝑐1 − 4𝑐2 − 3𝑐3 = 5 − (3)
(2) − 4(1): 3𝑐2 + 6𝑐3 = 0 − (4)
(1) + (3): −4𝑐2 − 4𝑐3 = −4 − (5)
Solving (4) and (5) yields 𝑐2 = −2, 𝑐3 = 1,
hence 𝑐1 = 𝑐3 − 1 = 0.
Therefore
(−1, −4,5) = 0(1,4, −1) − 2(0,3, −4) + (−1,2, −3).

= −(1 + 𝜆)(𝜆2 − 2𝜆 − 3)
Characteristic polynomial, 𝑝(𝜆) = −𝜆3 − 𝜆2 + 5𝜆 + 3

(ii)
When 𝑝(𝜆) = 0, (1 + 𝜆)(𝜆2 − 2𝜆 − 3) = 0
(1 + 𝜆)(𝜆 + 1)(𝜆 − 3) = 0
