Helenia, are you stalking me?!
I've seen you about more than a few times today, and not just on the river! Been such a busy day sorry I didn't say hi, but I did grin at you as we sped past you while you were getting your boat out!

any compsci know how to do question 7 or 8 on page 7 discrete maths? i can show that 2^2k - 1 is divisble by 3, but how do you go about dealing with the L shape. Also question 8, the doors which are unlocked have an odd number of factors (including 1 as a facotr) but how do you find which door numbers have that property?

as for 7. Notice that every time you increase k by 1, you increase the size of the board by 4 times. Notice that the newly "added" L shape (3 corners) can be made out of 4 smaller L shapes. suppose it is true that purple square can be anywhere in one corner of this shape, by rotating the structure, it could be anywhere in the shape. See my picture you'll understand what I'm talking about. I hope it's easy enough for you to understand.

as for 8. these numbers are square numbers. In order to have an odd numbers of divisers, the one diviser that's in the middle (median in a sense) must be a repeated diviser.

I started off with loads of antibiotics on my shelf, now I still have loads of antibiotics on my shelf...

I am hating it now. Especially because I can't do the physics problems. I'm not used to unable to solve problems that have been given to me. I'm hating that feeling. Hence hating Cambridge.

Discrete Maths is harder than I thought it would be. It is just on the edge of my capability as for now... I have super for it this Friday. But since I won't have any free time before 5 on Thursday, it's all work in tomorrow. And I still got at least one half of the 2nd excercise and q10 on 1st Ex to do... This is bad.

I'm going to do some mindless gaming for now. Just so I can be mildly happy for a while.

8? these numbers have to be square numbers. I don't think you need to answer q11.

but why must it be square....are square numbers of the only numbers with an odd number of factors?

It only gets worse.

More and more theory, get used to the discrete maths while you can!

Yes. Everything else has pairs of factors, therefore an even number in total.
