Unformatted text preview: Massachusetts Institute of Technology 6.042J/18.062J, Spring 10 : Mathematics for Computer Science April 23 Prof. Albert R. Meyer revised April 21, 2010, 763 minutes Solutions to In-Class Problems Week 11, Fri. Problem 1. We are interested in generating functions for the number of different ways to compose a bag of n donuts subject to various restrictions. For each of the restrictions in (a)-(e) below, find a closed form for the corresponding generating function. (a) All the donuts are chocolate and there are at least 3. Solution. 3 x , , , 1 , 1 ,..., 1 ,... 1 x (b) All the donuts are glazed and there are at most 2. Solution. 1 , 1 , 1 , , ,..., ,... 1 + x + x 2 (c) All the donuts are coconut and there are exactly 2 or there are none. Solution. 1 , , 1 , , ,..., ,... 1 + x 2 (d) All the donuts are plain and their number is a multiple of 4. Solution. 1 1 , , , , 1 , , , ,..., 1 , , , ,... 1 x 4 (e) The donuts must be chocolate, glazed, coconut, or plain and: there must be at least 3 chocolate donuts, and there must be at most 2 glazed, and there must be exactly 0 or 2 coconut, and there must be a multiple of 4 plain.
