comment Use of “inverse” to mean reciprocal
Yes, I understood that the reciprocal is a type of inverse, but "inverse" seems overly general to specify a reciprocal relationship.

Please ask your second problem as an entirely new question instead of as an edit to this one.

@Tim: Might want to change the title too.

comment Calculate intersection of 2 points
@J.M. I'm pretty sure Ross Millikan interpreted it right. You have two points and two slopes given as angles from the vertical ($\pi/2$) and want the intersection between the two lines thus determined.

comment Why the name 'FACTORIAL'?
But that's true of other numbers (both smaller and larger) that aren't the factorial.

comment Inclusion-exclusion principle: Number of integer solutions to equations
@DAK: Reread Gerry's last paragraph. For the intersection of $A_1$ and $A_2$, it's equivalent to solving $v_1+v_2+y_3+y_4=5$ with $v_1, v_2, y_3, y_4 \ge 0$. Just like the number of solutions to solve $y_1+y_2+y_3+y_4 = 12$ is $C(15,3)$, the number of solutions to that equation (and the size of the $\lvert A_1 \cap A_2 \rvert$ set) is $C(8,3)$.

comment Inclusion-exclusion principle: Number of integer solutions to equations
I agree, I think it's $C(12 + 4 - 1, 3) = C(15,3)$.
