Here are several useful approaches you should be able to use. This equation involves ordinary integers, and so you can use all of the things you already know from high school algebra about working with equations.

An integer is a linear combination of a and b if and only if it is a multiple of their greatest common divisor. This is really useful in working on questions involving greatest common divisors.

Find gcd , , and express it as a linear combination of and Which of the integers 0, 1,. Give a proof by induction to show that each number in the sequence 12, , , ,. Pigeonhole Principle presents the most essential and basic part in the mathematics of count- ing and sorting. This research paper introduces the topic of Pigeonhole Principle, including theorems born from this basis and discusses several cases related to the principle. This paper will also present the fundamental proof of the theory and some advanced questions in abstract mathematics which are related to the theory of sets and graphs. Robinson in the year of This simple assertion has been used in many applications that range from computer data compression to problems that involve infinite sets that cannot be put into one-to-one correspondence.

It has been generalised to probabilistic appli- cations as well1. I counted it twice.

This story is an example of the First Pigeonhole Principle 2. He intends to use apples as bonus when the kids are getting correct answers. When he is holding those fresh apples from bracket in his hands, an idea came to his mind: can he distribute those 19 apples to 9 children with everyone got two apples and no apple is left? If he does not eat any apple. Assume all the pigeonholes contains at most one item, then the maximum number of the total items that the n pigeonholes can contain is n, which is less than m.

By contradiction, there must be at least one pigeonhole contains more than one item. By contradiction, there must be at least one pigeonhole contains less than m item s. By contradiction, there must be at least one number that is less than or equal to aavg.

If A and B know each other, a red edge will be added between A, B. Otherwise, a blue edge will be added.

It means that a blue triangle or a red triangle should exist in the graph. For one of these 6 vertexes, for example, vertex A. There must be 5 edges connecting to it.

With Pigeonhole Principle, at least 3 edges are the same colour. Without loss of generality, consider these edges are blue colour and connect to B, C and D.

There also exists another proof using Pigeonhole Principle: count- ing the total triangles in the graph and leading to contradiction. Similarly, we prove there exist a red triangle or a blue triangle in the graph. Define that an angle with same colour edges is called same-colour angle and an 5 angle with different colour edges is called different-colour angle.

Again define that a triangle without any different-colour angle is called same-colour triangle, different- colour triangle otherwise. Obviously, a different-colour triangle must contains two different-colour angles. Proved by contradiction, assuming that there is no blue or red triangle in the graph. It also implies there is no same-colour triangle in the graph. Recall 3 that these 15 triangles have to be different-colour triangles.

The maximum number of different-colour triangle in this graph is to be determined. Considering any vertex, for instance, A, in the graph. There are 5 edges connecting to A. Without loss of generality, consider these edges are blue colour and connect to B, C and D.

There are 20 triangles in total while there only exists 18 different-colour triangles. With Pigeonhole Principle, there must be same-colour triangle s in the graph.

## Numbers and Proofs

If there are people being separated into 2 groups, with Pigeonhole Principle, one group contains 50 or less than 50 people. In other words, if two groups both contain more than 50 people, there must exist some people belonging to first group and second group. The Inclusion-Exclusion Principle4 is an equation relating the sizes of two sets and their union.

Consider different situations. Case 1: Jason is blind and he lives alone. There are 5 different pairs of socks with 5 colours respectively in his closet in total.

It would be easy for him to distinguish them if the socks presenting in front of him are in pairs. Solution: As a blind man, Jason find it is always hard to find out the suitable pair of socks with same colour from the closet. If there are 5 different pairs of socks in his closet in total and he can feel and determine whether two socks in his hand are a pair or not.

By the Pigeonhole Principle, treating the socks as the pigeons, only if 6 socks being taken out would ensure there is at least a pair. Case 2: In an experiment, the scientists want to find two people with the ABO blood grouping matching same. In order to save time, the blood samples will be collected and processed simultaneously. If we treat them as 4 pigeonholes, and consider the patients as pigeons to be put into the holes. To ensure there are at least two pigeons in a hole, the scientists should pick up at least 5 samples. Case 3: Pitter is the boss of a lotto games company, the lottery is a number which contains 5 digits.

Every month, the machine picks up 1 number randomly and the owner of the lottery ticket with the same number will win one million dollars. In order to demonstrate the justice of the lottery, there must be at least one winner every month. Based on the former condition, calculate the minimum number of customers should this ticket be sold to.There are still many things, even seems to be simply but with hidden truths and mysteries, remaining to be discovered and uncovered.

The notion of binary operation is meaningless without the set on which the operation is defined. You can search by Author of Book Partial names allowed. Two important and related problems in algebra are the factorization of polynomials , that is, expressing a given polynomial as a product of other polynomials that can not be factored any further, and the computation of polynomial greatest common divisors.

If there are people being separated into 2 groups, with Pigeonhole Principle, one group contains 50 or less than 50 people. These articles have been collected together in a number of books, some of which can usually be found in your local bookshops and libraries. In order to demonstrate the justice of the lottery, there must be at least one winner every month.
