 Apr 27 answered Good books on integrals Mar 31 awarded Good Answer Mar 24 comment Say we have a presentation of a finite group. Does adding additional relations to the presentation always decrease the size of the group? I'll see if I have some time. I don't think you're too far off. The original discussion of completeness is good. Mar 24 comment Say we have a presentation of a finite group. Does adding additional relations to the presentation always decrease the size of the group? happy with your discussion of quotient. What I meant by comparing to linear algebra was why we can reduce the question of "consequence of other relations" to a statement of linearity(because of bases, essentially). Mar 24 comment Say we have a presentation of a finite group. Does adding additional relations to the presentation always decrease the size of the group? This is the "right" answer, but I'd like to see you discuss the quotient. Also, maybe say why this is different than the linear algebra case of "linear dependence". :-) Mar 22 comment 7 Cents and 11 cents Stamps Mathematical Induction Think about the recurrence relation formed by reducing the number by one of the stamp's face value! Mar 3 comment Definition of q-ary lattices Perhaps you could add a definition of q-ary lattice that you're considering? Mar 3 comment Finding an optimal wage Start by observing the equation $9000=600d+200n$. You now have a system of two equations and can maximize $p$. Feb 29 answered Help With a Card Game Feb 29 comment Help With a Card Game @pjs36 You're right! the solution is based in projective geometry, the objects are slightly different, but extremely similar to designs. Feb 25 comment Challenging combinatorial problem possibly involving Pigeonhole Principle The question is a bit unclear. First, do you mean the weights can be in the range 1,..,2k? Also, can they repeat? Also, also, does the question want us to use all the weights or some of them? Please try to clean this up.
