comment Tigers and lions attack if they are hungry or threatened.
I think 1. is funny but is wrong. A tigon is neither a tiger nor a lion (that is why it is called tigon). the same is true for ligers. So sentence 1. means: "if something is a tiger and a lion (which is not possible), then ..."

How do you want to show something about pi if you have not definition of it?

comment Show that the derivative of a function is not continuous
you get $g'(x_n)= \frac{4}{\frac{\pi}{3}+ 2n\pi}\sin (\frac{\pi}{3}+ 2n\pi)$. This converges to $0$

the title of our post is strange.

Yes, I think you are right

comment Show that the derivative of a function is not continuous
And what is $g'$ if $x \ne 0$? Did you already calculate it?

What is $f$? The same as $g$?

comment How to simplify this composition function $g(x)=\underset{n\text{ times}}{\underbrace{f \circ f \circ f \circ f\circ f \circ \cdots\circ f}}(x)$?
@Sanchayan: did you check this numerically?

comment How to simplify this composition function $g(x)=\underset{n\text{ times}}{\underbrace{f \circ f \circ f \circ f\circ f \circ \cdots\circ f}}(x)$?
@Sanchayan: what is $\sin^2(x)$: Is it $\sin(\sin(x))$ or $\sin(x) \cdot \sin(x)$

comment Permutation & Combination of letters
@mihir: A picture of a text is not a good idea. This is not wanted here. He can type the original text to this post. If he needs assistance in formatting the text he will get help here. If one selects the context menu (right mouse button) 'Show -Math -> TeX Commands' of a TeX graphic, one can see the TeX command that generates this formula. TeX commands must be preceded and terminated by a dollar character (or two dollar characters is it should be positioned in a separate line)

comment Proof that $ n^{n} \leq {(n+1)}^{n} $
to prove $(1+1/n)^n \geq 1^n$ by induction is almost the same as to prove $n^{n} \leq {(n+1)}^{n}$. So this is not a proof at all. But it seems that some readers are excited by the formulas

comment Proof that $ n^{n} \leq {(n+1)}^{n} $
to prove a simple statement by use a rather complex one seems not a very useful idea to me.

comment Proof that $ n^{n} \leq {(n+1)}^{n} $
and why $(1+1/n)^n \geq 1^n$? Because exponentiation is an increasing function? Then $(n+1)^n \geq n^n$ follows immediately.

comment How many passwords can be formed?
the throughput my connection to the internet is too weak. I cannot watch videos. but I think it is a sequence of points of a 3x3 grid such that a line segment that connects two consecutive points of this segment does not contain a point from this grid. But maybe I am wrong. Is the length of the sequence limited to 9? It would be fine if you precisely describe the password algorithm..

comment How many passwords can be formed?
I have seen this but I don't have this. Can you describe the allowed passwords/patterns? What are consecutive dots?
