@Glen_b, I figured it out, but thanks

comment Generate Sequence with given variance and mean
@Glen_b the generated sequence can be any distribution. I hear your point about the 0's, but I'm sure what else to look for. The mean and variance are for the sequence

What is $q$ here?

comment Calculate variance
@AndréNicolas Is the question underspecified, or can I just pick a distribution, defend it, and thats it?

comment Is this way of teaching how to solve equations dangerous somehow?
The worst example I've ever seen is "Ours is not to reason why, ours is to invert and multiply" oh the irony.

Why did you differentiate?

comment Is mathematics the only language that is not subject of interpretation?
I don't think your example of computer programming language is good. Undefined behavior means that results might not be consistent, and I believe that it would require solving the halting program to remove.

comment Suppose the quotient of two odd integers is an odd integer.
If this is HW, please tag it as such. Additionally, how would you expand an odd integer such that you can use the distributive rule?

comment Changing a number between arbitrary bases
Got it, have to do the modulo in the original base. Didn't realize, sorry.

comment Changing a number between arbitrary bases
Wait, how do I do this for a starting base $\neq10$?

comment Changing a number between arbitrary bases
Confused. Did you just define $x$ to be two different things? How did I get $x$'s base $b$ representation?
