Name: S.S.N: MAS 3300 – FINAL EXAM Fall 1994 In giving proofs make sure your reasoning is clear. The questions have equal value. Write on ONE side of your paper. 1. PROVE If a,b R then a ( - b ) = - ( ab ). 2. Use mathematical induction to prove that 1 1 · 2 + 1 2 · 3 + ··· + 1 n ( n + 1) = 1 - 1 n + 1 for all integers n 1. 3. PROVE If a,b,c Z , a | b and b | c then a | c . 4. PROVE that there are infinitely many primes. 5. Use uniqueness of prime factorizations to prove that 18 is irrational. 6. PROVE that if Z n is a field then n must be prime. 7. Find integers x and y such that
