No, I think mine wins at the moment. I'm being such a hobo at the moment. It really is quite inhospitable, the bedder is definitely not allowed in until it's been decontaminated.

Guess what Guess what!!!! I can do some of the discrete maths!!!!!!! I managed to answer a question without having to look at my notes!!! If only I had another month of revision time then I might actually be able to do exam questions on this damn topic!

OOO OOO OOO:

Can someone check my proof for the following:

Prove that the set of irrational numbers is uncountable...

For this I said take the set I as the set of irrationals. R = Q U I

i.e. that the real numbers is the union of the rationals and irrationals

But we know R is irrational and Q is rational, and so using the property that the union of countable sets is countable, I must be uncountable!

Is that right? Is there any other way to do it (which isnt horrendously complex mind you!)

irrational numbers... ah yes... proof by contradiction is the easiest way to do it. Alternatively, you can try diagonal argument.

so how would you do it as a proof by contradiction? Or the diagonal argument as well...I cant see how to use that (probably cos I dont understand it properly)!!??

You basically just used proof by contradiction.

I wouldn't bother with diagonal argument. It makes me woozy.

Oh, but it is fun!

Willa

That's exactly what you just did, say so in your answer. Makesure you've also proved there isn't a bijection from N to R if you haven't used done that already in the question. I remember there being questions which made you go all the way back through to N rather than assuming the uncountablity of R.

I suppose it depends on how many marks the question carry... you wouldn't prove R is uncountable for 2 marks would you? (having said that... you might have to if a quest explicitly asked for it...)

Oh Goat... Fill me with coffee your Lordies.

ps, mix coffee with coke taste funny.

2003 P1 Q8 - my paper 1 in my first year. Prove R is uncountable. 2 marks. Bastards.

I don't think I did too badly on that question though. Maybe 6 - 10 marks.

You guys have just destroyed any shred of doubt I had left about my decision not to do a maths degree.

I had a hunch it would be all about proof ...

this isnt in maths we're talking about...it's computer science!

Really? It sounds scary ... but then I guess most things do if you don't understand what on earth they're about.

Ah, a perfect opportunity to tell a stupid joke:

What´s the difference between a compsci and a mathmo?

- The mathmo wanted to do maths!
