3. Suppose you want to use mathematical induction to prove that:
12+22+…+n2= n(n+1)(2n+1) /6
for all positive integers. To show P(k) implies P(k+1) you assume the equality in the statement
P(k) and-a. Add (k+1)2 to both sides.
b. Add k2+1 to both sides.
c. Add k+1 to both sides.
d. Add k to both sides.
4. Find f(3) if f(n) = f(n-1)/f(n-2), f(0)=2, f(1) =5.
a. 5/2
b. 1/2
c. 3/2
d. 1
5. Find the best big-oh function for the function:
f (n) =
a. 1
b. N
c. n^2
d. n^3
6. For which of the following is the recursively defined set S equal to {a, 2a, 3a, 4a, 5a, ...}?
a.
b.
c.
d. this is the right one ( a in S, x in S then a+x in S)
(4th option is right)
7. True or false:
If 1 &lt; 0, then 3 = 4.
