Prove that every positive integer is the sum of at most 3 triangular numbers (proven by gauss :) don't cheat :) And don't feel bad if you can't get it, Gauss didn't prove this until he turned 6

>> No.11976796

Let n be a positive integer.
Assume n can be written as a sum of 4 triangular numbers.
By a theorem of Gauss, this is a contradiction.
Therefore every positive integer is a sum of at most 3 triangular numbers.
This completes the proof.

What is the median age for death by coronavirus? I can't seem to find the information anywhere. My guess would be between 80-85, but I want to be sure. Also median age seems like a better indicator of lethality than average age, right? But also more young people than old people contract the virus, so there are more chances for a younger person to die. But what is the median age?

Why is autism more common in males than females?

>> No.11976747

>why are boy more likely to be interested in things
>why are women more likely to be interested in people

>> No.11976811

Because it can't be diagnosed in females as easily leading to under-diagnosis since society treats women paternalistically. In women autism is not a drawback because it makes it so that they're perceived as extra cute instead of extra creepy.

I want to seriously devote myself to studying mathematics, since I'm currently in the last year of high school and I want to pass the entrance exam to a solid university so I can study CS. I have the list of the things that will be on the entrance exam, as well as the entrance exam from the last year. Tried looking for some textbooks but I feel overwhelmed. I want to study specifically to pass the entrance exam and a bit more. I don't want to dedicate too much of my time to some complicated things which I can't use.

Any help? Do you know of any good literature that I should use? How much is the high school knowledge I already have valuable?

>> No.11976688

I'm struggling with this as well. I think there's such a thing as practical mathematics motivated by financial gain, and that motivated by curiosity.

I'm more naturally motivated by curiosity, which is as much as a luxury as it is a valuable asset.

I woke up in the middle of the night with half of my face and half of my arm numb, and had to rub on them for a bit until blood started pumping in. Did I just suffer a stroke, though? Because that was my immediate thought as it happened and I’m still frightened by the possible complications that might occur, if they haven’t already. There’s no brain fog, nor do I have any problem regarding clumsiness and what not.
But, is there a chance I actually suffered a stroke as well as permanent brain damage?
I’m really afraid of the possibility of the long-term injury aspect involved in it.

>> No.11976680


>> No.11976728

By definition, IQ is a measure of how intelligent a person is based on what the society sees as useful. So my opinion is that they get to live better lives in a society as long as they keep doing them favors. Society keeps them alive, and high IQs get to keep the society alive. Anyway that's just my opinion.

To apply control you need to be an engineer, chemical, mechanical, electrical or aeronautical, anything else is a poor imitation of the subject, you'll probably learn some undergraduate level shit and not understand the subject at all.

>> No.11976660

The classes I plan to take are offered by the engineering department. There's nothing similar to control in the physics curriculum.

Made me question whether control is something that is applicable in the realm of physics. On the other hand, I can only find stuff written by those two authors >>11976421

>> No.11976671

So some physical questions are questions of stability, I believe turbulence is one. So if you like fluids there's probably some physics there to discover because we know so little about turbulence. Aeroelastic flutter is another example of a stability problem the structures engineers do when designing a plane. For complicated structures there's definitely more physics to discover in that field. I once knew a guy who did his phd thesis on quantum control, I guess it's a thing.
