The list below contains problems of different levels of difficulty. Extra hard (in my opinion) problems are marked by (!). 1. (!) Prove that, for any positive integer n , 2 n summationdisplay k =1 (- 1) k +1 k = 2 n summationdisplay j = n +1 1 j . 2. (!) Suppose p is a polynomial of degree n , and x R . Prove that there exist a , a 1 , . . . , a n R s.t. p ( x ) = n k =0 a k ( x- x )...
