# The Proof is Trivial! Watch

1. (Original post by und)

The original method of cataloguing the problems and solutions was very time consuming. Someone at some point wrote a script to do this automatically but it needed improvement and I am not sure what happened with that.

Even if we were to collectively update the OP, which in theory shouldn't be too time consuming, bear in mind there is a strict character limit for posts, which does not play well with all those links. The first post is already out of space.

Anyway I hope you are having a nice summer!

I don't know why I didn't see this quote...

Aaaaah that makes sense.

Thanks I had an OK summer. I hope you've been having a nice summer too.

Jhust call it unit length, bung in some angles, and work out the length of each side.

The ratio is 2

My work was pretty scrappy (literally on the back of an envelope), so I'm not 100% it was right (now in the bin). May look again in a bit...
6. Man, this thread sure has deteriorated from what it once was.

I would've loved it back then

I would've loved it too, probably wouldn't have been able to do any of the questions though. We should make an effort to revive the thread! You've got all your tricky number theory questions.

Ive done it as well now (I used 'r' for the length of the squares) and got that the length is 3r+(rt3)r and the width is (rt3)r + r so the ratio is rt3:1
10. Problem 502

The independent normal variates X and Y have standard deviations a and b respectively. The variate Z=X+Y has standard deviation c. Prove that, if a, b and c are positive integers, it is impossible for all three variates to have odd variances.

11. Problem 503

Given integers and satisfying , find integers and such that

12. Problem 504

Evaluate
13. Problem 505

(a) Use to show that .

(b) By replacing the denominator of the above integral with two suitable integers, obtain a lower and upper bound for .

Massive hint for (b):

This is definitely wrong atm.

Finger slip = should be a +, fixed it, thanks for pointing it out!
16. Solution 504 (I think haha)

Let
Therefore

Substituting into our integral:

P.S. Does anybody know the LaTeX for hyperbolic and inverse hyperbolic functions?

Solution 504
Precisely the solution I wanted, most people don't think of replacing the whole integrand with a u-sub.

Quick note, you could have tidied your solution a slight bit by using implicit differentiation instead of re-arranging:

Edit: I don't think Latex has hyperbolic trig, you could always use though.
18. Can someone here tell me how to do those javascript equations? I really wanna know

Thanks for the LaTeX info.

I'll have to get thinking of some nice questions to post.

It's called Latex, and here's how you use it on TSR.
