 Nov 11 comment Show that a matched set of nodes forms a matroid I was now able to understand (1) and (2) but I have problems with the proof of (3). I was thinking about defining a basis $\mathcal{B}\in\mathcal{I}$ which contains all nodes of a perfect matching (which would be the entire set $V$), however this sounds incorrect because I think something would be missing here. Do you have any hint what I did misunderstand? Nov 11 comment Show that a matched set of nodes forms a matroid @joriki: I don't think that this is exactly what makes it difficult for me. We never had any exmaples in class because our prof just shows us some definitions without even explaining how to work with such structures. In the end this concept of a matroid is still a mystery to me and I don't know whether my thoughts on what to do suffice and furthermore I don't know how to proove this while having such abstract definitions without any imagination how my sets might look like.

Nov 10 comment Extend functions such that they are continuous Oh typo. Fixed it now - may I ask you whether you can confirm my second result $b=4$ which I did determine the same way as $a$?

Nevertheless this looks more familiar and comprehensible and I will try working on that later on. - Thanks! Nov 9 comment Convergence of semi-telescopic series $\sum\limits_{k=1}^\infty\frac{1}{k(k+1)(k+2)}$ @BrianM.Scott: We haven't even defined derivatives and integrals yet, currently attending "Calc. I" if you could say so. (Everything is different in Germany...) - However I still don't see how to determine the $1/4$ WolframAlpha has computed. By now I only know how to show, that my series converges. Nov 9 comment Convergence of semi-telescopic series $\sum\limits_{k=1}^\infty\frac{1}{k(k+1)(k+2)}$ @BrianM.Scott: Looking up in my textbook the $p$-series is prooved (in a part we did not work through yet) with approximations $1/n^k\leq 1/n^2\leq 2/(n(n+1))$ for $k>1,k\in\mathbb{N}$ and the last term converges because the telescopic series converges. You claim, that my series I have to work with does not converge, however WolframAlpha claims that it converges to $1/4$ - am I missing something? Nov 9 comment Convergence of semi-telescopic series $\sum\limits_{k=1}^\infty\frac{1}{k(k+1)(k+2)}$ We haven't discussed integrals yet in the context of limits and sequences and series so your hint does not help that much - so any easier way to show that? Furthermore I understand that I can show that the series will converge by your mentioned approximation, however I still don't know how to get the limit in the second step.
