the cube has we get a total of 24 edges for the new solid. The correct answer is (e) . square Solution of problem 1.4: We have a stack of 14 dimensional spaces making- up the 15 dimensional space. In each of these 14-dimensional spaces we have a cross-section of B which is a hollow 3-dimensional octahedron, and so is 2-dimensional. In other words B is a stack of 2-dimensional objects. The only additional parameter in B is the thickness of the stack. So B is 2 + 1 = 3-dimensional. The correct answer is (a) . square 12

Solution of problem 1.5: D can not be distorted into T . Indeed, if there was such a distortion, then it will distort T with any point deleted into D with some point deleted. But if we delete the crossing point of T , we will be left with an object consisting of three connected pieces, while deleting any point from D leaves a single piece. Three connected pieces can not be distorted continuously into a single connected piece, so D can not be distorted into T . For the same reason D can not be distorted into Y . Similarly D can not be distorted into N . Indeed - removing any point from D leaves a single connected piece, while removing any point from N leaves two connected pieces. Also neither Y nor T can be distorted into N . Removing the cross- ing point from either Y or T will leave three connected pieces, while removing any point from N leaves two connected pieces. Finally Y can clearly be distorted into T by taking the two top portions of Y and pushing them continuously down until we get a horizontal cross bar. Therefore the correct answer is (e) . square Solution of problem 1.6: The pairs of pants has three boundary circles. A torus and a sphere have no boundary so they can not be topologically equivalent to a pair of pants. Similarly a hemisphere and a torus with one hole have one boundary circles, so they are not equivalent to a pair of pants. A cylinder has two boundary circles so it can not be topologically equivalent to a pair of pants. So the only possibility is the sphere with three holes which indeed has three boundary circles. The correct answer is (f) . square Solution of problem 1.7: A rectangular sheet of fabric with two parallel boundaries identified with a flip of orientation produces a M¨ obius band, and so has a single boundary. Our sheet of fabric has an additional circular hole and so after the identification we will get a M¨obius band with a hole: 13

    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.
