comment Prove that if $\sum a_n$ converges, then $na_n \to 0$.
@gniourf_gniourf i am not arguing, just trying to learn -- why is this wrong? we have to start from some $n \ge N$

comment Deck of Cards Stats Probability Question
Welcome to Math.SE, please update your question with your thoughts about the problem and we will be happy to guide you with hints. For example, how do you in general find $\mathbb{P}[A|B]$ for events $A,B$?\

comment minimum possible value of a linear function of n variables
So in a sense you are trying to solve the related linear problem. If you are the optimizer which direction is most profitable to explore?

+1 clever use of algebra, but to me geometry was more intuitive...

comment Should an interpolation coincide the original function on the given data points?
As Ross Millikan said, there is a difference in terms. If you want to match the data exactly, it is called interpolation, if not -- approximation

comment Completing the square (and variants thereof)
not sure, i would let it go, but not a strong opinion... let someone deeper comment on that and see where it goes...

@Hamza yes, indeed

comment Finding a root approach with a polynomial
@NotoriousNick the one closer to $0$ is the approximation of the rootof the transcendetal equation.

comment Minimum cost linear programming problem formulation
Can you please show some work on the problem -- what will be the setup (source, sink vertices, graph structure, costs, how you will make the variables) and we will be happy to help clear up things you are not getting correctly. People here generally don't like doing your homework for you

comment A result of equation $y^2+1=x^p$ where $p$ is odd prime.
Here is perhaps a first step. If we assume for a second that $m$ is even, then $(-1)^k = (-1)^{m-k}$ and your LHS expression is really $$ \frac{1}{m!} \sum_{k=0}^m \binom{m}{k} k^m (-1)^{m-k} = \frac{1}{m!} \sum_{k=0}^m \binom{m}{k} (-k)^m $$

comment Chenge weight function in shifted orthogonality
@behmor67 you have to figure out which function to use to make the integral come out to $0$

comment Confidence Intervals
@adhok i am not sure it is ever valid. $x_{n+1}$ is independent of $x_1, \ldots, x_n$ as stated, and so is independent of $\Sigma_n = \sum_{k=1}^n x_k$. If you are given the distribution of $\Sigma_n$ for arbitrary $n$, you could derive from there if you needed.

comment Expectation of a function of a normally distributed random variable
notation $r(\theta)$ is problematic - it denotes a function on the lhs of eqns 1 and 2, while inside the integrals you compute $(r-\theta)^2$ while integrating $dr$ -- what is the connection?

comment Expectation of a function of a normally distributed random variable
notice that the integrals on the RHS of eqn2 and lhs of eqn3 are the same. is that the intent?

comment Expectation of a function of a normally distributed random variable
there is a ) missing in the first equation on the left side, where does it go?

comment Overflow an integer sequence at a given value
@DavidK in C++ this would avoid a size_t to int conversion as well, which is potentially problematic
