Unformatted text preview: MATH 74 HOMEWORK 1: DUE MONDAY 1/29 1(a). Find all real numbers x satisfying x 4 6 x 2 +7 = 0. Write it up in any format that makes clear what you did. (For example, pretend youre writing an example for a high school precalculus textbook. A student reading it would probably want more than just a chain of equalities theyd want a word or two explaining where things are coming from.) You may assume basic arithmetic of real numbers and the quadratic formula (as it applies to finding real roots of quadratic equations with real coefficients). 1(b). Find all real numbers x satisfying x 4 2 x 2 1 = 0. Problems 25. The integers are the numbers { , 3 , 2 , 1 , , 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . } . For every integer x and y we have an integer x + y and an integer x y (you learned how to compute these operations a long time ago). In class we took the following facts about these operations as axioms (ie, we assumed they are true)....
