+1 You managed to give the simplest argument of all of us :-)

Which metric you assume, the one of $L^\infty$, i.e., the maximum one, right?

comment Finding the value of the series $(n-1)(n-2)(n-3)…\infty$
-1 This is way beyond acceptable notation. Remember that sloppiness in sums can lead to results like that $1+2+3+4+5+\dotsb = 1/12$. You need to very carefully specify what you do.

comment Why does the solution set for this inequality turn out this way?
Ahem try this with a 5-variable inequality ;-) While this works on the "maternity school level", anywhere higher up you shall go the rigorous way. This answer is not quite general, it works only for 1-variable inequalities with continuous functions.

comment Isolating Decimals
Note that people who need this a lot often denote it $\{x\}\mathrel{:=} x-\lfloor x\rfloor$ (of course, they mention this notation in the preliminaries because it's considered non-standard).

It's all because French has too complicated spelling :D

@MarioCarneiro "Correct" here is a very vague and difficult notion. Once you state clearly at the beginnin, that you work in $\mathbb{Z}/n\mathbb{Z}$ a lot, you can safely use $k\equiv 4\operatorname{mod} n$ and everybody knows what you mean.

I wonder why the downvote.
