Prove that sup(a, b)=sup[a, b]=b and inf(a, b)=inf[a, b]=a. Is completeness relevant?

Denoting, as usual, by (a, b) an ”open interval”, {x : a<x< b} and by [a, b] the corresponding ”closed interval”, {x : a≤x≤b} of real numbers, prove that sup(a, b)=sup[a, b]=b and inf(a,... more

Given: line WXY, m<WXZ = 135°. Prove: m<ZXY = 45°

Statements line WXY m<WXY = 180° m<WXZ = 135° m<WXY = m<WXZ + m<ZXY 180° = 135° + m<ZXY 45° = m<ZXY m<ZXY = 45°   Reasons  Given Defintion of supplementary... more

Proof question: "Prove that if 𝑛 is an odd integer then ⌈ (2𝑛+1) / 2 ⌉ = 𝑛 + 1"

Am I wrong in thinking that the 2's in the numerator and denominator should cancel each other out, leaving me with ⌈𝑛+1⌉= n + 1, and because n + 1 is an integer, that it's ceiling is simply n + 1?... more
