Analysis 1: Exercises 5 1. Prove that (a) ( n N ) [( n > 10) (2 n > n 3 )]. (b) ( n N ) [( n > 9) (2 n > 4 n 2 + 1)]. 2. The notation ‘( ! x S ) P ( x )’ is often used to mean that there is a unique element x of S for which P ( x ) is true (i.e., there is exactly one element for which P ( x ) is true). Write the statement using the usual quantifiers. 3. Let b, d, q be positive integers and c d < p q < a b . Show that one can find positive integers m, n such that p q = ma + nc mb + nd . Construct a numerical example. 4. (a) Prove that no rational has its cube equal 16. (b) Prove that a rational number p/q in its lowest terms is the cube of a rational number iff there exist integers m and n such that p = m 3 and q = n 3 . 5. (a) Let a, b, c be rational and

(c) Let a, b, c, d be rational and x be irrational. In what circumstances is ax + b cx + d rational? 6. Using the axioms of real numbers show that (a) ( a R )( b R )( c R )[(( ac = ab ) ( a 6 = 0)) = ( b = c )]; (b) ( a R )( b R )[(-a )(-b ) = ab ]; (c) ( a R )( b R )( c R )[(( a &gt; b ) ( c &lt; 0)) = ( ac &lt; bc )]....
