Problem 1. Let G be a group and let H, K be two subgroups of G such that H K
is also a subgroup. Prove that either H K or K H.
Solution: Suppose that neither H K nor K H. Then there is h H,
h 6 K and there is k K, k 6 H. Since H K is a subgroup, we have h

Section 5.2 Compound Interest
With annual simple interest, you earn interest each year on your original investment. With
annual compound interest, however, you earn interest both on your original investment and
on any previously earned interest.
There are four standard arithmetic operations: addition, subtraction,
multiplication, and division.
Just as we took differences of natural numbers to represent integers, here the
essence of the process is to use ordered pairs representi

We consider two cases.
(i) Let b 0. Then |b| = b and we have: |b| a b a a b a (it is
obvious that a b since b 0, a 0).
(ii) Let b < 0. Then |b| = b, and we have |b| a b a a b
