- Chapter 1, sections 1.1 - 1.4, material generally embedded in other questions,
- No binomial Theorem on this test,
- Chapter 2, sections 2.1 - 2.5,
- Proof by truth tables and/or laws of logic,
- Chapter 3, sections 3.1 - 3.4,
- Proof of set relations through membership table and/or set laws and/or Venn diagrams,
- If method of proof not specified, use whatever form you wish,
- If a questions requires you to "prove" a result, it means a formal proof; "show" allows more flexibility in the presentation,
- In general, show your defintions "n = 20, r = 5" or "Let x be an arbitrary element in set A"...
- Box or otherwise indicate your final answer. Proofs require a conclusion.
- This test does not require a calculator, so it is acceptable to leave answers in the "choose" notation form, or 2^n form, etc. Numeric answers are not required. Reduced answers are desired but not required. Use your judgment.
