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 Subgroups of Sufficiently Large Symmetric Groups / Cayley's Theorem explanation
Ah! That's just the sort of intuition I was looking for! Much appreciated!

comment Subgroups of Sufficiently Large Symmetric Groups / Cayley's Theorem explanation
@lhf: Basically, too much jargon and not enough intuition. I am new to the area of groups so I haven't gotten used to all the jargon. mesel's answer is pretty much exactly what I was looking for.

@David: Cayley's Theorem is exactly what I was suspecting.

comment How can the trefoil knot be expressed in polar coordinates?
But the Wolfram|Alpha plots both treat $t$ analogously to $\theta$. In the first, $0 < t < 2\pi$ and in the second $-\pi < t < \pi$. How is $t$ different from $\theta$ in these contexts?

comment Why does this function not have any extrema?
Indeed, plotting the function shows that there is a saddle point.

comment Finding the limit of $( 1 + a + a^2 + \ldots+ a^n)/(1 + b + b^2 + \ldots+ b^n)$
The method I tried turned out to give a wrong answer, so I deleted my answer. Writing out all 9 cases is not that bad, honestly.

comment Why am I getting half the correct answer by using Green's Theorem?
That, and I remember it's the Jacobian for that transformation.

D'oh! That's exactly it! In my defense, the last time I had to worry about that was more than two years ago... >_>

comment Sex distribution
My gut feeling is "no" because after picking one male student, you're choosing from N-1 male students and N female students. Not much difference, but it's there.

comment Finding linear combinations and verifying using the augmented matrix.
@Fatz: I fixed that part of it. For future reference, use a double space at the end of a line for a line break.

comment Given 13 cards and having at least one ace, what's the probability you hold all aces?
I tried to LaTeXify this and make it pretty, but I couldn't parse your solution attempt in a way that made sense. Could you rewrite it?

comment How many numbers of the form $p_1^2 p_2 p_3$ are there less than $10^{15}$ for $p_1$, $p_2$, $p_3$ distinct primes?
Do you need an exact answer or a good approximation?
