CSE20 - Solutions HW 3 Fall 2011 Problem 1 (8 pts) (a) 1. x . H(x) → B(x) 2.  x . B(x) ¬ H(x) 3. x . H(x) B(x) → E(x) (b) Literally: “For every historical essay x there is a book y that is not expensive and is more interesting than x” Elaborating: “You can always find a non-expensive book that is more interesting than a historical essay” (c) ¬ (  x . [H(x) → y . ( ¬E(y) M(y,x))] )  x . ¬ [H(x) → y . ( ¬E(y) M(y,x))] As a rule (negation of implication), ¬ (p → q) p ¬ q  x . [ H(x) ¬ ( y . ( ¬E(y) M(y,x)) ) ]  x . [ H(x) ( y . ¬ ( ¬E(y) M(y,x)))] applying De Morgan's Law:  x . [ H(x) y . ( E(y) ¬M(y,x))] (translated into english [not required] would be: there is always a book that is either expensive or less interesting than a historical essay) Problem 2 (8 pts) 1. For any a, b, x, if x divides both a and b, then x also divides (a+b) Proof: a/x=c, c integer, by definition of “x divides a”, x|a. Hence a=cx. Equally, b=dx, d integer. Thus for any integer x, a ,b, we can write (a+b) as (cx+dx)= (c+d)x (c+d) is integer since c and d are both integers and we can use the closure property of integers under addition.

### What students are saying

• 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.
