Web Developer in Calgary, Alberta. Consulting on various projects, mostly with a .Net or classic ASP background. I've been developing Web applications and Websites for over a decade now ranging from using a propietary markup and ISAPI extensions(C/C++) to Classic ASP(VBScript) to ASP.Net(C# 1.0/1.1/2.0/3.5/4.0/MVC) I enjoy solving puzzles such as Sudoku and mysteries. My previous work involves using various Agile practices,e.g. Scrum and pair-programming, on a CMS project within an IS department's web development group.

I enjoy sharing what I've experienced, learned or think may be worth sharing with the world.

Note that the first case, $-x<0$ would allow for $x=.25$ in which case $x^2-1=-.75$ which evaluates to a square root in the reals by what method?

comment Are these predicate translations correct?
Part 1 of question 2 should have an example rather than just a wordy answer as notice that the other questions are given specific cases as an answer.

comment Find last n for which 2^n has a 0.
How are you defining last $n$? Additionally, how do you handle fractional cases as $2^{-12}=0.00024414062$ that has a 0 and is a rather small number compared to others.

comment Binomial Theorem and Pascal's Triangle
Consider how 1 doesn't affect the products at each term as 1 raised to any positive integer power is still 1.

comment For any positive integers $a$ and $b$, the number $(36a+b)(a+36b)$ can never be a power of $2$.
Note that if a=b then 37 becomes a factor of the product as a minor addendum to the proof.

@BarryCipra, yeah. I goofed on my initial answer.

comment How to show that $f(x)$ is never negative
Are you familiar with derivatives? One way would be to look for the critical points and notice what is the minimum value in this case.
