comment Making my Topology joke mathematically rigorous.
Why do people want to delete a question with seven upvotes that has been already answered through the comment section?

comment Albert, Bernard and Cheryl popular question (Please comment on my theory)
This is the solution to case 2 which I already purveyed un the body of muy post. Here ate math syackexchangewe emcourage user to read the questions before answering. Although I appreciate the effort.

Thank you for your valuable input.

"the point of this type of problem is ......". How do you know this?

comment Albert, Bernard and Cheryl popular question (Please comment on my theory)
I am inclined for the second interpretation, but I would never approve of a question being posted in the form in which it currently is.
1d
comment Albert, Bernard and Cheryl popular question (Please comment on my theory)
It doesn't say it was because Bernard deduced it on his own, I believe this to be an assumption.
2d
comment Number of $n$-cycles fixed by a permutation of $S_n$.
Can I assume $n=dm$?
2d
comment Number of ways to distribute 55 red balls and 3 green balls
I think this is the way to go, no case work require, I would like to point out that no case work is needed is because each person has at least five balls, which is larger than three. So we can use stars and bars for a second time without having to put artificial upper bounds on the number of green balls per person, which would make the problem a lot more tedious.
2d
comment Possibilities of license plates with special rules
Thank you for the comments, I made some changes, do you think it is clear now?

comment How would multiplying money work?
Most of the effort in the real world has been in multiplying money by real numbers, especially those larger than one.
2d
comment combinations help, 18 boxes, 42 marbles, each box can hold 6 marbles. how many combinations?
If I understand correctly the OP wants to find a function in terms of the number of marbles. I think your approach is good, I suggest you work it out, we will probably get something of exponential growth order but I don't know which will be the base for the exponent.

comment combinations help, 18 boxes, 42 marbles, each box can hold 6 marbles. how many combinations?
@JMoravitz are you proposing we do inclusion exclusion all the way or only a few iterations?
2d
comment combinations help, 18 boxes, 42 marbles, each box can hold 6 marbles. how many combinations?
One final question, should we count arrangements in which some boxes end up being empty?
2d
comment How to Prove with Mathematical Induction $3^n > n^2$
Thank you JMoravitz, I was considering adding a section on how to prove that statement.
2d
comment combinations help, 18 boxes, 42 marbles, each box can hold 6 marbles. how many combinations?
So the boxes and marbles are all different?
2d
comment Complement of a Regular Graph
it means the degree of vertex $v$. The subindex tells you in which graph this degree is being taken. So $\delta_G(v)$ is the degree of $v$ in the graph $G$.

You're Welcome, if you want to learn with categories Aluffi uses them a lot more than Rotman.

Oh ok, I didn't know it was a convention.

sorry I meant they should explain how Albert knows that Bernard does not know. This should be explained clearly.

Thanks for the answer, I think that this is the official solution, although I really feel like they should explain how it is that Bernard knows.
