# The Proof is Trivial! Watch

1. Problem 191*

Determine all real numbers which satisfy this equation, and remarking as to why some roots are disregarded.

2. Solution 176:

God typing LaTeX on a mobile is tedious.
Yay, this is how I did it! Much more satisfying!

I should really get more confident with the Laplace Transform! I got as far as the last integral but it looked too messy to turn into something I could apply the inverse too Nicely done!

\Rightarrow I = 4\displaystyle \int \dfrac{u}{(u+1)^{10}} \ dx
Nice job! Though, given how straightforward a lot of these integrals are, I believe the aim is to come up with with most elegant/quick method. I believe that the only chance someone is going to have to complete one of these questions every 50 seconds is to find such elegant methods! Heres mine

Solution 187 (2)

The difference is marginal, I just showed more working, though, you're right, that would have been slightly neater.

The differences add up I do believe! And being clever with your algebra is a useful trick to know (see below)

You defined the limits of the equation to be

So I'm just curious as to where has gone? Can't it be...

Oh, possibly. There may be a more elegant solution (mine is only 8-9 steps long of working), unless your writing is brobdingnagian.

Of course. I bet you're just one of those reckless *******s who loves introducing additional solutions into equations. Something like this:

By the way, the second question is much more difficult. I can't think of anything simpler than L-functions.
The second part can be done in three lines by using only value of Hurwitz's zeta function.

Problem 193 / ****

Prove that has no integer solutions, with , for a prime .

I do - so much better than trig!

(Original post by Jkn)

A correct and perfectly acceptable solution. However, this was in the head-to-head and there is no chance you could have done that in less than 30 seconds let alone doing most of the working in your head!

My approach on the other hand... (hopefully now my point will be made)

Solution 184 (2)

What point are you trying to make? That you're obnoxious? That is all that has been proven here tonight and scarcely needed more rigorous justification anyway.
