# The Proof is Trivial! watch

1. Since this one hasn't been answered yet:

Solution 16

Note, applying to the former and to the latter:

Observe now that

, by applying the above result in the case .

Problem 14**

Prove that is divisible by 61.
2 to the power of 60 - 1 = 1152921504606846795
1152921504606846795 / 61 = 18900352534538475
Therefore it's divisible by 61. Problem solved

Solution 20
Integral
Let

We have and

Let and

So the integral is as required.

The funny thing is... my method of using FLT also only takes 2 lines of work

Hmm I'm really tempted to ask problems that are well-known theorems under disguise (as I think they serve to educate interesting points) but it's hard to judge the difficulty

Not fair, FLT isn't part of the A Level syllabus is it?

We were having trouble proving that 2^700^70^7-1 is divisible by 101. Show us your ways.

Spoiler:

It is, and it's a proof you need to know. FLT, by the way, is short for Fermat's Last Theorem, there's a section on it in C4

In the context Noble uses it, FLT means Fermat's Little Theorem here (which you don't need to know at A-Level ).

You managed to mess with me in the process.

I can see this thread becoming prime procrastination material for my revision...

I know, I was going to say the same. It's sad when you have to class doing 'other' maths as procrastination
17. Problem 25**/***

1. Show that for any (potentially infinite) set , there is no surjection , where is the powerset of .

If only I could understand groups by doing integrals, then I'd be on to something...

Out of interest, are questions on things like groups etc. suitable for this thread?

If we're going to procrastinate, I don't see the harm in combining a bit of revision

It's fine as long as it's marked accordingly. If possible it would be good if everything could be defined so at a stretch anyone could have a go, but it's not a requirement.
