Mod on Christianity.SE!

Aside from Christianity, I have many other interests, including mathematics, programming, writing, reading, 3D modeling, martial arts, rock climbing, and many more.

comment How to prove $\left \lceil \frac{n}{m} \right \rceil = \left \lfloor \frac{n+m-1}{m} \right \rfloor$?
Three observations: 1) Your last step is the same algebraic manipulation as my answer. 2) I feel like you haven't finished the induction process. 3) You may or may not know this, but it is generally considered polite to accept answers given on your questions (although you don't have to accept the most highly-voted answer).

comment Coloring the vertices of $K_n$ and showing existence of a monochromatic triangle
@userJD-512: Well, in order to have a monochromatic triangle, one must have 3 edges of the same color, yes? It's possible that your instructor may be considering edges to be irrelevant, in which case your conjecture is correct is as stated. I'll edit my answer to reflect both cases.

comment Prime Appearances in Fibonacci Number Factorizations
@Matthew: That says that these primes are those such that $p \equiv \{2,3\} \text{ mod } 5$. Does that mean that the answer I'm looking for is $\frac{2n}{5\ln{n}}$? EDIT: I see Qiaochu's answer.
