Re: Sequence

This can be written as $\zeta(1)$ (don't be afraid if you never saw this, search for Zeta Function).
\[1+\dfrac12+\dfrac13+\ldots=\prod_{p\in\mathbb P}\dfrac{p}{p-1}\]
where $\mathbb P$ is the set of primes.
Why does this hold? Think using unique prime factorization.

Re: Good positive integers

Aha. That problem of mine! It's quite easy actually. But it can be made a bit hard with more restrictions. Have you solved it?

Re: ONTC Final Exam

tanmoy wrote:$2^{n}+1$ is odd.So,$n^{2}-1$ is odd.So,$n$ is even.Let $n=2k$.Then $2^{n}+1=(2^{k})^{2}+1$.So,every divisor of $2^{n}+1$ is of the form $4m+1$.
So,$n^{2}-1 \equiv 1 (mod 4)$.
Or,$n^{2} \equiv 2 (mod 4)$,which is impossible.
So there is no solution. :)
You have to prove it.

Try this: $n^2-1|2^n+1$

Re: ONTC Final Exam

I posted the solutions of the first one in my new blog. But my laziness is getting the better of me again. When that passes, I will start writing again there. Stay tuned lol
