comment How can I prove every Riemann sum of x^2 of [a,b] is the integral?
unless I can show that evenly spaced is equivalent within the same proof, then I wouldn't be satisfied. I have to think about how obvious (to me) it is that they are equivalent, but thank you!

comment How can I prove every Riemann sum of x^2 of [a,b] is the integral?
I was looking for $f(x) = x^2$ rather than $f(x) = x$, although this is slightly different than what I was doing so thank you!

Ah right I fixed the typo. And yes I see what you mean, you're right of course, they won't cancel. I am moving along to theorems that can be used to prove this, but I'm still curious how one would do it 'from scratch' here.

comment Probability of deviation of sample distribution, why absolute difference?
@Danny Do you see how to the uninitiated your argument is circular? We check because we want to check is not clarifying things for me. Try this: what would we be calculating if we didn't use absolute value signs?

comment Probability of deviation of sample distribution, why absolute difference?
@Danny yes they are adding that, but the question is why. In my question I put "Aren't we only concerned with the sample mean being $\geq$ 5.027?" Why check if it goes below by 0.027?

comment The complexity of Depth First Search
The question is about the asymptotic performance of the algorithm. You need to read about 'big O', and the wikipedia article on this subject is a decent place to go. Then, see if you can answer some simpler questions, such as what is the complexity of bubble sort. Finally, tackle DFS!

comment Prove that all subsequential limits have been found
@Henry yes it appears I was allowed to assume $a_n$ only takes 5 values.

comment Prove that all subsequential limits have been found
@Lund-Nguyen exhaustive was meant to mean '$S$ is the set of all possible subsequential limits' not just a subset, or a wrong set either.

comment Prove the difference of roots is less than or equal to the root of the difference
I know we can suppose a >= b without loss of generality (since we are using absolute values). However no, I don't see how to move past this part algebraically. I get $-2\sqrt{ab} \leq -2b \to 4ab \leq 4b^2 \to a \leq b$ still not sure what this gets me...
