Since this is an introduction that spans the entirety of the Stack Exchange network, I would just like to say... I love them all!

comment Divisibility of multinomial by a prime number
I especially like the alternative approach. It suits my application computationally if I store values for $v_p(n!)$ in a cache.

comment Fixed-Point Iteration method unable to converge to any of a function's infinte roots
@Amzoti I have answered my own question because it seemed satisfactory enough to me. Please check it if there are any discrepancies in the answer; I can't seem to find one. Also: what is the protocol regarding answering your own question?

comment Fixed-Point Iteration method unable to converge to any of a function's infinte roots
@Amzoti Thanks for the reference and the tip; I have blindly used the method till now. But the fact remains this is a homework queston where the function and the method are pre-specified. Still, plotting another function g(x) = (sin(x) + 1)/(sin(x) - 1) on the graph is yielding me infinite roots as promised by the original equation. I am still working on its solution, but the fact remains I still don't know why my original method failed.

@copper.hat I meant fixed-point iteration method. Sorry for confusion; I have updated the post accordingly.

Try curve tracing to visualize the problem in 3D.

comment How can I introduce complex numbers to precalculus students?
I always imagine complex numbers as a plane, only with one axis as the imaginary numbers. I thought it was the only way to do it, really!

comment Number of points at which a tangent touches a curve
@RobertIsrael - He said it exactly like I said. Maybe he didn't want me to get into detail - I'll give him benefit of doubt since he was at the end correct. Plus, he is otherwise an excelent teacher!

comment Number of points at which a tangent touches a curve
This seems intriguing, and though I don't understand bits of it right now, I would have just have to study more. Thanks for your answer. I was expecting something of this kind from this site. :-)
