comment Have I justified that $\forall x \in \mathbb{R}$, $x > 1 \rightarrow x^2 > x$
That square I put there was a test to see how this community would accept it. My instructor claims that it is common to denote the end of a proof with this strange looking notation.

@HSN I am not taking abstract linear algebra. So your first hypothesis is true. This course is an introduction to elementary discrete mathematics.

Thank you for confirming, some of the question get a bit sticky.

comment Is my answer correct to this homework involving sets?
I am glad you caught that so quick, it seemed apparent that I was missing something to this but I could not define what it was.

Yes I see your point, I was doing things a bit too implicitly and that is why I was unsure of my own reasoning. Thanks!

So if 1 person is wearing blue and green, then $G = 1$, $B = 1$, $|G \cap B| = 1$

comment Can you show why zero divided by zero does not equal zero?
@GilYoungCheong Unfortunately $0^{-1}$ is equally as undefined as $1/0$ which makes sense because you are correct they should be the same in any other example that do not include zero.

@GilYoungCheong Does this not also work for real numbers too?

comment Can you show why zero divided by zero does not equal zero?
@DonAntonio Yes, sorry I do not necessarily mean prove. I asked that since everything seems to revolve around proofs for me recently. I realize it is undefined. Perhaps show that it does not work is what I am interested in.

comment Is it more practice and intuition or rather algorithmic to solve third degree polynomials of this type?
My brain does not work like yours, but I hope it starts to soon.
