3.4-13 Prove that f1+f3+...+f2n-1 = f2n whenever n is a pos. int.
We prove this by induction. The base case is n=1, and in that case the statement to
be proved in just f1=f2; this is true since both values are 1.
Next we assume that inductive hypothesis, that f1+f3+...+f2n-1 = f2n ,
and try to prove the corresponding statement for n+1, namely,
f1+f3+...+f2n-1+f2n+1 = f2n+2.
We have f1+f3+...+f2n-1+f2n+1 = f2n + f2n+1 (by the inductive hypothesis)
= f2n+2 (by the def. of the Fibonacci numbers)
3.4-22 Show that the set S defined by 1S and s+tS whenever sS and tS is the
set of pos. ints.
Clearly only pos. int. can be in S, since 1 is a pos. int. and the sum of two pos ints. is
again a pos. int.
To see that all pos. ints. are in S, we proceed by induction. Obviously 1S. Assuming
that nS, we get that n+1 is in S by applying the recursive part of the def. w/ s=n and
t=1. Thus S is precisely the set of pos. ints.
3.4-23 Give a recursive def. of the set of pos. ints. that are multiples of 5.
We can define the set S={x|x is a pos. int. and x is a multiple of 5} by the base case
requirement that 5S and the recursive requirement that if nS, then n+5S.
Alternatively we can mimic Example 7, making the recursive part of the definition that
x+yS whenever x and y are in S.
3.4-25 Give a recursive definition of
a) the set of even integers.
Since we can generate all the even ints. by starting w/ 0 and repeatedly adding or
subtracting 2, a simple recursive way to define this set is as follows: 0S; and if
xS then x+2S and x-2S.
b) the set of pos. ints congruent to 2 modulo 3.
The smallest pos. int. congruent to 2 mod 3 is 2. so we declare 2S. All the others
can be obtained by adding multiples of 3, so our inductive step is that if xS, then
x+3S.
c) the set of pos. ints not divisible by 5.
The pos. ints. not divisible by 5 are the ones congruent to 1,2,3, or 4 mod 5.
Therefore we can proceed just as in part (b), setting 1S, 2S, 3S, and 4S as
the base cases, and then declaring that if xS, then x+5S.
3.4-27
a) If we apply each of the recursive step rules to the only element given in the basis
step, we see that (0,1), (1,1), and (2,1) are all in S.
If we apply the recursive step to these we add (0,2), (1,2), (2,2), (3,2) and (4,2).
The next round gives us (0,3),(1,3), (2,3), (3,3), (4,3), (5,3), and (6,3).
And the fourth set of applications adds (0,4),(1,4),(2,4),(3,4),(4,4),(5,4),(6,4),(7,4),
and (8,4).
b) Let P(n) be the statement that a2b whenever the (a,b)S is obtained by n
applications of the recursive step.
For the basis step, P(0) is true, since the only element of S obtained w/ no
applications of the recursive step is (0,0), and indeed 02*0.
Assume the strong inductive hypothesis that a2b whenever (a,b)S is obtained by
k or fewer applications of the recursive step, and consider an element obtained w/
k+1 applications of the recursive step.
Since the final application of the recursive step to an element (a,b) must be applied to
an element obtained w/ fewer application for the recursive step, we know that
a2b.
So we just need to check that this inequality implies a2(b+1), a+12(b+1), and
a+22(b+1). But this is clear, since we just add 02, 12, and 22, respectively, to
a2b yields a2(b+1), a+12(b+1), and a+22(b+1) .
c) Structural Induction: This holds for the basis step, since 00. If this holds for (a,b),
then it also holds for the elements obtained from (a,b) in the recursive step, since
adding 02, 12, and 22, respectively, to a2b yields a2(b+1), a+12(b+1), and
a+22(b+1).
6.1-11 a) Since the number of bacteria triples every hour, the recurrence relation
should say that the number bacteria after n hours is 3 times the number of
bacteria after n-1 hours. Letting bn denote the number of bacteria after n hours,
this statement translates into the recurrence relation bn=3bn-1
b) The given statement is the initial condition b0=100. We solve the recurrence
relation by iteration: bn = 3bn-1 = 32bn-2 = ... = 3nbn-n = 3nb0. Letting n=10 and
knowing that
6.1-12 We are letting an be the population, in billion of people, n years after 2002.
a) an=1.013an-1 with a0=6.2
b) an = 6.2(1.013)^n
c) a20 = 6.2(1.013)20  8.0 billion people
6.1-23 the number of bit strings of length n that contain a pair of consecutive 0's
a) Let an be the number of bit string of length n containing a pair of consecutive 0's
In order to construct a bit string of length n containing a pair of consecutive 0's, we
could start with
•1 and follow with a string of length n-1 containing a pair of consecutive 0's, or
•01 and follow with a string of length n-2 containing a pair of consecutive 0's, or
•00 and follow with any string of length n-2 containing a pair of consecutive 0's
These three cases are mutually exclusive and exhaust the possibilities for how the
string might start. From this analysis we can immediately write down the recurrence
relation, valid for all n2: an=an-1 + an-2 + 2n-2. (Recall that there are 2k bit strings of
length k)
b) There are no bit strings of 0 or 1 containing a pair of consecutive 0's, so the initial
conditions are a0 = a1 = 0
c) We will compute a2 through a7 using the recurrence relation:
a2 = a1 + a0 + 2^0 = 0 + 0+ 1 = 1
a3 = a2 + a1 + 2^1 = 1 + 0+ 2 = 8
a4 = a3 + a2 + 2^2 = 3 + 1+ 4 = 9
a5 = a4 + a3 + 2^3 = 8 + 3+ 8 = 19
a6 = a5 + a4 + 2^4 = 19 + 8+ 16 = 43
a7 = a6 + a5 + 2^5 = 43 + 19+ 32 = 94
Thus there are 94 bit strings of length 7 containing two consecutive 0's
6.1-24 the number of bit strings of length n that contain three consecutive 0's
a) Let an be the number of bit string of length n containing a pair of consecutive 0's
In order to construct a bit string of length n containing a pair of consecutive 0's, we
could start with
1 and follow with a string of length n-1 containing three consecutive 0's, or
01 and follow with a string of length n-2 containing three consecutive 0's, or
001 and follow with a string of length n-3 containing three consecutive 0's
000 and follow with any string of length n-3 containing a pair of consecutive 0's
These four cases are mutually exclusive and exhaust the possibilities for how the
string might start. From this analysis we can immediately write down the recurrence
relation, valid for all n3: an=an-1+ an-2 + an-3 + 2n-3.
b) There are no bit strings of 0, 1 or 2 containing three consecutive 0's, so the initial
conditions are a0 = a1 = a2 = 0
c) We will compute a3 through a7 using the recurrence relation:
a3 = a2 + a1 + a0+ 2^0 = 0 + 0+ 0+ 1 = 1
a4 = a3 + a2 + a1+ 2^1 = 1 + 0+ 0+ 2 = 3
a5 = a4 + a3 + a2+ 2^2 = 3 + 1+ 0+ 4 = 8
a6 = a5 + a4 + a3+ 2^3 = 8 + 3+ 1+ 8 = 20
a7 = a6 + a5 + a4+ 2^4 = 20 + 8+ 3+ 16 = 47
Thus there are 47 bit strings of length 7 containing three consecutive 0's

2=-2. Therefore an=3(-3)^n – 2n(-3)^n = (3-2n)(-3)^n
g) r^2+4r-5 = 0, r=-5, 1, an=1(-5)^n + 2*1^n = 1(-5)^n + 2, 2= 1+2, 8= 51+2, 1=-1, 2=3. Therefore an=-(-5)^n + 3
