comment Sums of digits of prime numbers: reference request
Nope. i in I indexes the i-th digit. Without digit a_0 you have divisibility by q

comment Sums of digits of prime numbers: reference request
If you choose your index set $I$ such that $0 \not\in I$, then the number would necessarily be divisible by $q$. For example: $i=\{1,2,3\}$. Then $p=a_1q+a_2q^2=a_3q^3=q(a_1+a_2q+a_3q^2)$. So for any $s >1$, we get a non-trivial multiple of $q$ and $p$ cannot be prime.

comment Show a property of a vector space axiom equivalent to another property
If you are asked to prove one axiom is equivalent to some other statement, you need to be very careful which lemmas you use. You don't want to end up assuming what you're proving. In your case, showing that the existence of inverses implies that $0v=0$, using that lemma is fine. On the other hand, showing that $0v=0$ implies the existence of inverses, using the lemma probably isn't ok unless that lemma is proven without assuming the inverse axiom (which I'm betting it does). In the end, if you are asked to prove one axiom is equivalent to another, the safest route is to avoid using an lemmas.

comment Show a property of a vector space axiom equivalent to another property
This proof suffers from the same problems as the proof posted by the OP. Namely, you've assumed $-1v=-v$ (which is true). However, $-1v=-v$ is not an axiom. It needs to be proven.

comment Comparing cardinality of sets
Sure, no problem. Counting problems always leave me a little uneasy -- it's so easy to miss a case or double count something. It's nice to have a solid formula to hang your hat on. :)

comment Use group homomorphism to prove that for systems of linear equations, general=particular+homogeneous
If y is a vector of functions as well as g and if A is a matrix of functions, this is essentially the definition of a (non homogeneous) linear system.
