MATH 135, Fall 2010 Assignment #6 Due at 4:00pm on Tuesday, November 2 Problem 1 . Most recent books are identified by their International Standard Book Number , or ISBN, which is a 10-digit number, separated into four blocks. The ISBN for our course text book is 0-13-184868-2. Here the first block of digits, 0, represents the language of the book (English), the second block, 13, represents the publisher (Pearson Prentice Hall), the third block, 184868, is the number assigned to the book by the publisher, and the last block, 2, is the check digit . If a 1 , a 2 , · · · , a 10 are the 10-digits of the ISBN then for 1 i 9 we have a i { 0 , 1 , 2 , · · · , 9 } while a 10 { 0 , 1 , 2 , · · · , 9 , X } , and X means “10”. The check digit a 10 is used to determine whether an error has been made when an ISBN is copied. It is chosen so that 10 i =1 i a i 0 (mod 11) . (a) Determine whether the number 5-22-390112-X is a valid ISBN.

Unformatted text preview: (b) Determine the value oF the digit a such that the number 2-17-8a2250-3 is a valid ISBN. (c) When an ISBN was copied, two adjacent digits were interchanged resulting in the number 1-18-397604-5. Determine the original ISBN. Problem 2 . A positive integer is divisible by 8 iF and only iF the three-digit integer Formed by its fnal three digits is divisible by 8. (You do not need to prove this.) Determine all pairs oF digits ( a, b ) such that 72 b 9 a 2 is divisible by 88. Problem 3 . Use mathematical induction to show that 3 n ≡ 1+2 n 2 (mod 8) For all integers n ≥ 0. Problem 4 . Suppose that a, b ∈ Z and m, n ∈ P . Prove that an ≡ bn (mod mn ) iF and only iF a ≡ b (mod m ). 1...

    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.

    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.
