### Prove that $\lim\limits_{x\to\infty} \frac{\Gamma(x+1,x(1+\epsilon))}{x\Gamma(x)}=0$.

I conjecture that for any $\epsilon>0$, we have $$\lim_{x\to\infty} \frac{\Gamma(x+1,x(1+\epsilon))}{x\Gamma(x)}=0$$ where $\Gamma(x,a) = \int_a^\infty t^{x-1}e^{-t} \mathrm{d}t$ denotes the ...

### Is this statement stronger than the Collatz conjecture?

$n$,$k$, $m$, $u$ $\in$ $\Bbb N$; Let's see the following sequence: $x_0=n$; $x_m=3x_{m-1}+1$. I am afraid I am a complete noob, but I cannot (dis)prove that the following implies the ...

### What does proving the Collatz Conjecture entail?

From the get go: i'm not trying to prove the Collatz Conjecture where hundreds of smarter people have failed. I'm just curious. I'm wondering where one would have to start in proving the Collatz ...

### If $a$ is even and $b$ is odd then $\gcd(2^{a}+1,2^{b}+1)=1$

How to prove that: If $a$ is even and $b$ is odd then $\gcd(2^{a}+1,2^{b}+1)=1$ This statement is generalization of the statement from my previous question. I have checked for many $(a,b)$ ...

### If $\gcd(a,b)=1$ , and $a$ is even and $b$ is odd then $\gcd(2^{a}+1,2^{b}+1)=1$?

How to prove that: $\gcd(a,b)=1 \Rightarrow \gcd(2^{a}+1,2^{b}+1)=1$ ,where $a$ is even and $b$ is odd natural number For example: $\gcd(2^8+1,2^{13}+1)=1 , \gcd(2^{64}+1,2^{73}+1)=1$ I know ...
### Infinitely many primes of the $\sum_{i=0}^{a} n^{i}+m\cdot\sum_{i=0}^{b} n^{i}$ form?
How to show that there is infinitely many prime numbers of the form: $p=\sum_{i=0}^{a} n^{i}+m\cdot\sum_{i=0}^{b} n^{i}$ where: $m\in \mathbb{Z}^{*}$ , $a,b,n\in \mathbb{N}$ , $\gcd(a+1,b+1)=1$ For ...
Let $k$ be an odd number of the form $k=2p+1$ ,where $p$ denote any prime number, then it is true that for each number $k$ at least one of $6k-1$, $6k+1$ gives a prime number. Can someone prove or ...
