Unformatted text preview: MATH 239 Quiz No calculators or other aids may be used. Show all your work. 1. Let S = V Y Z where V is the set of all positive odd integers Y is the set { 4 , 8 , 12 , 16 , . . . , 200 } Z is the set of all non-negative even integers. Find the generating function for S with respect to the weight function w dened by w ( v, y, z ) = v + y + ( z/ 2). Express your answer in the form p ( x ) q ( x ) where p ( x ) and q ( x ) are polynomials in x . Solution: the generating function for V with respect to the weight function w ( v ) = v is x + x 3 + x 5 + . . . = x (1-x 2 )-1 . the generating function for Y with respect to the weight function w ( y ) = y is x 4 + x 8 + x 12 + . . . + x 200 = x 4 (1 + x 4 + x 8 + . . . + x 196 ) = x 4 1-x 200 1-x 4 . the generating function for Z with respect to the weight function w ( z ) = z/ 2 is 1 + x + x 2 + x 3 + . . . = (1-x )-1 ....
