Quiz #8 for Math 55, Nov. 21 2002 1. Find the probability that when four numbers from 1 to 100, inclusive, are picked at random {em with no repetitions allowed}, either all are odd, all are divisible by 3, or all are divisible by 5. This is not exclusive-or; (9,15,21,33) should be counted even though all are odd and all are divisible by 3. A. Call these sets O, T, F. Then |O| = 50^4, |T| = 33^4, |F| = 20^4, |O intersect T| = 17^4, |O intersect F| = 10^4, |F intersect T| = 6^4, |O intersect F intersect T| = 3^4. So the answer is (|O| + |T| + |F| - |OT| - |OF| - |FT| + |OFT|) / 100^4. 2. How many cubefree integers are there less than 500? (You may be interested to know that 7^3 = 343.) A number is cubefree if it's not divsible by any n^3 for n more than 1.

Unformatted text preview: (500 isn't cubefree, so it doesn't matter if we say less than 500 or less than or equal to 500, by the way.) A. To get the cubefree ones, we throw away the ones divisible by 2^3, 3^3, 5^3, and 7^3. Then we have to add one thing back: the one number less than 500 that's divisible by two of these, 2^3 and 3^3. So it's 499 - floor(499/2^3) - floor(499/3^3) - floor(499/5^3) - floor(499/7^3) + 1. (If you want, that's 499 - 62 - 55 - 3 - 1 + 1.) 3. How many ways can 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 be rearranged so that no even digit is in its final position? A. We basically follow the derangement derivation, and get 10! - (5 choose 1) 9! + (5 choose 2) 8! - (5 choose 3) 7! + (5 choose 4) 6! - (5 choose 5) 5!....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
