comment Have some trouble with limits
Do you know about Taylor series? That would help a lot with (3) and (4). Factor the denominator of (2) at $a^3-b^3$ with $a = \sqrt[3]{x}, b= 1$.

comment Can a transcendental number be an infimum of a set of rationals?
@user2345215 i thought it is generally known that any non constant algebraic functions of 1 variable, applied to a transcendetal number, yield transcendental output.

comment what is the difference between $f(x;y)$ and $f(x|y)$?
@George that depends on the particular book you are looking at. Lots will use these notations to mean the same thing.

Yes, first problem's bin has $10 \cdot 5 = 50$ balls, the second has $10 + 8 \cdot 4 = 42$ balls.

Welcome to Math.SE, thanks for your question. Hope you stay around and contribute to the site. I haven't seen a standard notation for such things.

@Lubin see the edit, you just need to negate it.

comment How to compute the nth power of a matrix
As is clear from the above argument, it works as long as P is invertible, it doesn't rely on P being orthogonal

@RyanMcGaha Ryan, see the last update to the answer, I posted my numbers, do we agree?
