Question

be any positive integer and be propositions .

Now given that is true and implies .

From here using induction on n we can claim that is a true statement for all .

Proof : Suppose is not true ,

is not true , because if true then by given condition in (b) .

is not true .

is not true .

.........

is not true , a contradiction .

Hence is true for all .

I got a C++ problem. Let n be a positive integer and let S(n) denote the number of divisors of n. For example, S(1)- 1, S(4)-3, S(6)-4 A positive integer p is called antiprime if S(n)くS(p) for all positive n 〈P. In other words, an antiprime is a number that has a larger number of divisors than any number smaller than itself. Given a positive integer b, your program should output the largest antiprime that is less than or equal...

Q18 12 Points For any positive integer n, let bn denote the number of n-digit positive integers whose digits are all 1 or 2, and have no two consecutive digits of 1. For example, for n - 3, 121 is one such integer, but 211 is not, since it has two consecutive 1 's at the end. Find a recursive formula for the sequence {bn}. You have to fully prove your answer.
