328 Solutions to Exercises Solving for kl' we get kl = (3 - 2)k3 + (4 - 2)k4 + (5 - 2)k5 + ... + 2. This is exactly what we were asked to establish since (i - 2)k i is just 2]deg Vj - 2], tlte sum over all vertices of degree i. 21. [BB] There are no cycles in tlte subgraph since there are no cycles in CkH2k+2. Also, given any two C vertices, tltere is a patlt between tltem in CkH2k+2 (because CkH2k+2 is connected). Any H vertex on tltis patlt would have degree at least 2. Thus, tltere is none; tlte patlt consists entirely of C vertices and hence lies witltin tlte subgraph. The subgraph is connected, hence a tree. 22. (a) Let x be tlte number of H vertices adjoined. Since Thad k - 1 edges, and one new edge is added for each H, g has (k-1) +x edges. Therefore, E degvi = 2(k-1+x). But Edegvi = 4k+x since each C has degree 4 and each H has degree 1. Therefore, 4k + x = 2k - 2 + 2x and x = 2k+2. 23. (b) The above proof depends on T being a tree. The result is false otlterwise. H HH H Yj( c c Consider ~ which becomes C H H Here 2k + 2 = 8, but only six H's are needed.

    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.
