Definition of a metric space.
Let X be a set, X 6= . Elements of X will be called points.
1. Let a = 0.1 and b = 1. Show that at least 27 steps of bisection method are needed to determine
the root of a function f (x), with an error of at most 12 108 .
Hint: Recall that error
2. For the bisection method, show that
Let a positive sequence cfw_an converge to 0 and satisfy the condition
for some C 0.
Condition () implies that C 1. Indeed, since an 0, there exist infinitely many
indices n such that

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
