Unformatted text preview: 21-127, Concepts of Mathematics, Review ProblemsPlease note that the Principle of Inclusion-Exclusion is NOT on this exam.1. Prove that for everyk≥1 there exists some powernsuch that 7nhasktrailing zerosfollowed by a 1. For example, fork= 2 we have 720= 79792266297612001. (Hint:there are an infinite number of powers of seven, but only a finite number of possibleremainders).2. A derrangement, denoteddn, is a permutation of [n] such that no point is fixed. Forexample, 231 and 312 are the only derrangements of [3]. Use the principle of inclusion-exclusion to find an expression fordn.3. Prove that the probability that a permutation ofNbeing a derrangement is exactly1e,where a permutation ofNis a permutation of all the natural numbers.4. Find the number of eight-letter words using letters from the set{a,b,c}, if each lettermust occur at least once in each word.5. Find the number of quadratics of the formx2+ax+bthat do not have a root modulopwherepis any prime. (Hint: use the principle of inclusion-exclusion withis any prime....
