comment If $f'(x)\rightarrow \infty$ then $f(x)\rightarrow\infty$?
You are welcome. It can be somewhat tricky to go from "local" information (the derivative) to "global" information. The MVT does the job, as would integration.

comment Find area of shaded area in curve with range of values for $y$
Hint: The right half of the shaded region is a rectangle plus the region below $y=32-2x^2$, above $y=14$, from $x=2$ to $x=4$.

comment If $f'(x)\rightarrow \infty$ then $f(x)\rightarrow\infty$?
Not true. Example, $f(x)=x$. There are much "wilder" examples. Just knowing that $f(x)\to\infty$ as $x\to\infty$ tells us little about $f'(x)$.

comment Prime number theory.
A start: Suppose to the contrary that some $d\gt 1$ divides both.Then some prime $p$ divides both. We have $p$ divides $ab$ so $p$ divides $a$ or $p$ divides $b$. (i) Show that $p$ divides $a$ and $p$ divides $ax+by$ leads to a contradiction; (ii) Do the same for $p$ divides $b$ and $ax+by$.

comment normal approximation with continuity correction
You are welcome. I will add a "practical" remark about the continuity correction.

comment Number of ways to get from a point to another one in the plane
Our path can be represented by an $m+n$-letter "word" made up of $m$ occurrences of the letter R (right) and $n$ occurrences of the letter U. How many such words are there?

comment Factor $x^6+x^5+x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1$ in $\mathbb{F}_2[x]$
$(x^3+x^2+1)(x^3+x+1)$. These two factors are irreducible, since they are cubics with no root.

comment What number(s) is unequal to itself
In the standard axiomatizations of the predicate calculus with equality, one common axiom is $\forall x(x=x)$.

comment Can a field be isomorphic to its subfield but not to a subfield in between?
It has been a while, and I am post dinner and wine. They are not isomorphic as fields, since $F$ is algebraically closed but $E$ is not.

comment Prove surface area of a sphere using solid of revolution surface area formula.
For the first one you are rotating the top half of $x^2+y^2=1$, that is, $y=\sqrt{1-x^2}$.

@Nid: The quadratic mod $10$ has an additional factorization that I mentioned above.
