Oh, of course! Well that was very silly of me -- thanks!

comment Finding frame bundles
What exactly do you mean by 'finding' a frame bundle? Isn't a frame bundle just the a principal G-bundle where the fiber over $x\in M$ is isomorphic to the group of (orthogonal in the Riemannian case) frames at $P_x$?

comment Find all intermediate fields of extension $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{2} , \sqrt{3}) : \mathbb{Q}$ without using Galois correspondence.
Perhaps you can take advantage of the fact that $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{2},\sqrt{3})=\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{3})$?

Ask a friendly math professor from a university near you! Who knows -- someone might be willing to take you on for a summer project!

comment A hint to show that $S^n$ is infinite
As you mention, the stereographic projection yields a bijection from a subset of $S^n$ to an $n$-dimensional Euclidean space, which is infinite (assuming $n\neq 0$).

comment What is Xa = X (a= indice) in the given function y=6x-x²
Treat it as an unknown variable. Solve for the area in terms of $x$.
