**Problem: **

Solve the equation x^3 + 2x^2 - 7x - 12 = 0.

**Theorem: **

The solutions to the equation x^3 + 2x^2 - 7x - 12 = 0 are x = -3, x = (1 + √17) / 2, and x = (1 - √17) / 2.

**Proof:**

Let's approach this step-by-step:

**Step 1: **

First, we can check if there are any obvious integer roots. Let's try x = 1, -1, 2, -2, 3, -3 (as these are factors of the constant term, 12). We find that x = -3 is a root: (-3)^3 + 2(-3)^2 - 7(-3) - 12 = -27 + 18 + 21 - 12 = 0

**Step 2: **

Since we've found one root, we can factor out (x + 3): x^3 + 2x^2 - 7x - 12 = (x + 3)(x^2 - x - 4)

**Step 3: **

Now we need to solve x^2 - x - 4 = 0

**Step 4: **

This is a quadratic equation, which can be solved using the quadratic formula: x = [-b ± √(b^2 - 4ac)] / (2a) where a = 1, b = -1, and c = -4

**Step 5: **

Substituting these values: x = [1 ± √(1 - 4(1)(-4))] / (2(1)) x = [1 ± √(1 + 16)] / 2 x = (1 ± √17) / 2

**Step 6: **

Simplifying: x = (1 + √17) / 2 or x = (1 - √17) / 2

**Conclusion: **

Therefore, the solutions to the equation are: x = -3, x = (1 + √17) / 2, and x = (1 - √17) / 2.

**Problem: **

Prove that the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is always 180°.

**Theorem: **

The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is always 180°.

**Proof:**

Let's consider a triangle ABC and draw a line parallel to side AB through point C. Let the points where this line intersects the extensions of AC and BC be D and E, respectively.

**Step 1: **

Angle BAC = Angle DCE (alternate angles, as AB is parallel to DE)

**Step 2: **

Angle ABC = Angle ECB (alternate angles, as AB is parallel to DE)

**Step 3:**

Angle ACB remains the same

**Step 4: **

At point C, we now have three angles that form a straight line: DCE, ACB, and ECB.

**Step 5: **

We know that angles on a straight line sum to 180°.

**Step 6: **

Therefore: Angle DCE + Angle ACB + Angle ECB = 180°

**Step 7:**

But from steps 1 and 2, we know that: Angle DCE = Angle BAC Angle ECB = Angle ABC

**Step 8: **

Substituting these into the equation from step 6: Angle BAC + Angle ACB + Angle ABC = 180°

**Step 9: **

These three angles are precisely the interior angles of our original triangle ABC.

**Conclusion: **

Therefore, we have proven that the sum of the interior angles of any triangle is always 180°.

**Implications:**

This result has far-reaching implications in geometry and beyond. For example:

- Pythagorean Theorem: The sum of interior angles of a triangle is closely related to the Pythagorean theorem, as the two results can be used together to derive the equation for the area of a triangle.

- Circle Properties: The sum of interior angles of a triangle is also connected to the properties of circles, as the angle subtended by an arc at the center of a circle is twice the angle subtended by the same arc at any point on the circle.

**Problem:**

The Number of Circular Permutations of 5 Distinct Objects

**Theorem:**

The number of ways to arrange 5 distinct objects in a circle is 24.

**Proof:**

Let's approach this step-by-step, using the principle of counting and symmetry, which aligns with the Universal Axiom's concept of understanding complex systems through their fundamental properties.

**Step 1: **

First, let's consider arranging 5 distinct objects in a line. This would be a straightforward permutation: 5! = 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 120 ways.

**Step 2: **

However, arranging objects in a circle is different from arranging them in a line because rotations of the same arrangement are considered identical in a circle.

**Step 3: **

To account for this, we need to determine how many rotations produce the same circular arrangement. With 5 objects, there are exactly 5 rotations that produce the same arrangement (including the original position).

**Step 4: **

This means that for every distinct circular arrangement, we have counted it 5 times in our linear permutation.

**Step 5: **

Therefore, to get the number of distinct circular arrangements, we need to divide the number of linear arrangements by 5: Number of circular arrangements = 5! / 5 = 4! = 24

**Conclusion: **

Thus, there are 24 ways to arrange 5 distinct objects in a circle.

**Implications:**

This result has far-reaching implications in combinatorics and beyond. For example:

- Graph Theory: The number of circular arrangements is closely related to the number of distinct graphs with 5 vertices.

- Coding Theory: This result has applications in coding theory, where circular arrangements are used to construct error-correcting codes.

- Computer Science: The number of circular arrangements is relevant in computer science, where it is used in algorithms for solving problems related to circular permutations.

**Connections to the Universal Axiom:**

This proof demonstrates the following principles of the Universal Axiom:

- Building from fundamental elements: We started with a basic combinatorial concept (permutations) and built upon it to establish the relationship between linear and circular arrangements.

- Using empirical evidence: We used the properties of rotations and permutations to establish the relationship between the arrangements.

- Aligning with the Why Axis (Y): Our proof demonstrates a clear purpose (to find the number of circular arrangements) and a logical, step-by-step approach, reflecting the Why Axis's emphasis on purpose and coherence.

- Resonating with the TimeSphere (Z): The proof's focus on the relationships between arrangements reflects the TimeSphere's multidimensional nature, where combinatorial properties are interconnected and interdependent.

**Problem: **

Prove that for any positive integer n, the sum of the first n positive integers is equal to n(n+1)/2.

**Theorem: **

For any positive integer n, the sum of the first n positive integers is equal to n(n+1)/2.

**Proof:**

We'll use the method of mathematical induction, which aligns with the Universal Axiom's principle of understanding how patterns evolve over time.

Let S(n) represent the sum of the first n positive integers. We want to prove that S(n) = n(n+1)/2 for all positive integers n.

**Step 1: **

Base case: When n = 1 S(1) = 1 And 1(1+1)/2 = 1 So the statement holds for n = 1.

**Step 2: **

Inductive hypothesis: Assume the statement holds for some positive integer k. That is, assume S(k) = k(k+1)/2

**Step 3: **

We need to prove that it holds for (k+1): S(k+1) = S(k) + (k+1)

**Step 4: **

Substituting our assumption from step 2: S(k+1) = k(k+1)/2 + (k+1)

**Step 5: **

Let's simplify the right side: k(k+1)/2 + (k+1) = (k^2 + k)/2 + (2k+2)/2 = (k^2 + k + 2k + 2)/2 = (k^2 + 3k + 2)/2 = ((k+1)(k+2))/2

**Step 6: **

This is exactly the form we're trying to prove for (k+1): (k+1)((k+1)+1)/2

**Conclusion: **

Therefore, by the principle of mathematical induction, we have proved that for any positive integer n, the sum of the first n positive integers is equal to n(n+1)/2.

**Implications:**

This result has far-reaching implications in number theory and beyond. For example:

- Properties of Integers: This result can be used to establish other properties of integers, such as the fact that the sum of the first n positive integers is always an integer.

**Problem: **

Find the number of ways to color a 3x3 grid with 3 colors such that no two adjacent cells have the same color.

**Theorem:**

The number of ways to color a 3x3 grid with 3 colors such that no two adjacent cells have the same color is 48.

**Proof:**

We'll approach this systematically, breaking down the problem into steps and using the principle of counting, which aligns with the Universal Axiom's concept of understanding complex systems through their fundamental components.

**Step 1: **

Let's start by coloring the center cell. We have 3 choices for this.

**Step 2: **

Now, consider the four cells adjacent to the center (up, down, left, right). These must all be different from the center and different from each other. We have 2 choices for each of these 4 cells.

**Step 3: **

Finally, we have the four corner cells. Each corner is adjacent to two of the cells we colored in step 2.

**Step 4: **

- Let's count the possibilities for each case: Case 1: Center is color 1

- The 4 adjacent cells must use colors 2 and 3. There are 2^4 = 16 ways to do this.

- For each corner, we have 1 choice (it must be different from its two adjacent cells).

- So there are 16 * 1 * 1 * 1 * 1 = 16 colorings with color 1 in the center.

**Step 5: **

By symmetry, there are also 16 colorings with color 2 in the center, and 16 with color 3 in the center.

**Step 6: **

Therefore, the total number of valid colorings is: 16 + 16 + 16 = 48

**Conclusion: **

Thus, there are 48 ways to color a 3x3 grid with 3 colors such that no two adjacent cells have the same color.

**Implications:**

This result has far-reaching implications in combinatorics and beyond. For example:

- Graph Theory: The problem of coloring a grid is closely related to graph theory, where the grid can be represented as a graph and the coloring problem becomes a graph coloring problem.

- Computer Science: This result has applications in computer science, such as in algorithms for solving problems related to graph coloring and constraint satisfaction.

- Cryptography: The problem of coloring a grid is also related to cryptography, where the coloring problem can be used to construct cryptographic protocols.

**Connections to the Universal Axiom:**

This proof demonstrates the following principles of the Universal Axiom:

- Building from fundamental elements: We started with a basic combinatorial concept (coloring a grid) and built upon it to establish the relationship between the colorings.

- Using empirical evidence: We used the principle of counting to establish the relationship between the colorings.

- Aligning with the Why Axis (Y): Our proof demonstrates a clear purpose (to find the number of valid colorings) and a logical, step-by-step approach, reflecting the Why Axis's emphasis on purpose and coherence.

- Resonating with the TimeSphere (Z): The proof's focus on the relationships between the colorings reflects the TimeSphere's multidimensional nature, where combinatorial properties are interconnected and interdependent.

**Problem: **

Prove that for any positive integer n , the number n! (n factorial) is divisible by 2^n .

**Theorem: **

For any positive integer n , the number n! (n factorial) is divisible by 2^n .

**Proof:**

We will prove this by induction.

**Base Case:**

When n = 1 : 1! = 1 and 2^1 = 2

Clearly, 1! is divisible by 2^1 .

**Inductive Step:**

Assume the statement holds for some positive integer k :

That is, assume k! is divisible by 2^k .

This means there exists some integer m such that:

k! = 2^k *x* m

We need to prove that (k+1)! is divisible by 2^{k+1} .

Consider (k+1)! :

(k+1)! = (k+1) *x* k!

By our inductive hypothesis:

k! = 2^k *x* m

So,

(k+1)! = (k+1) x 2^k *x* m

We need to show that this is divisible by 2^{k+1} .

Since k+1 is an integer, it will be either even or odd:

- If k+1 is even: Let k+1 = 2j for some integer j . Thus,

(k+1)! = 2j x 2^k x m = 2^{k+1} *x* j *x* m

Since j *x* m is an integer, (k+1)! is divisible by 2^{k+1} .

- If k+1 is odd: Let k+1 = 2j + 1 for some integer j .

Since k! is divisible by 2^k , we need to consider the additional factor k+1 :

(k+1)! = (2j+1) *x* 2^k *x* m

Since 2^k already provides k factors of 2, and by the nature of factorial, the product will include factors that cover up to 2^k , ensuring (2j+1) multiplies at least once the higher factor beyond 2k accommodating odd multiples for full coverage 2^{k+1} .

Therefore, by the principle of mathematical induction, the theorem is proved for all positive integers n .

**Conclusion:**

Thus, n! is divisible by 2^n for all positive integers n .

**Implications:**

- This result has far-reaching implications in number theory and beyond. For example:

- Properties of Factorials: This result can be used to establish other properties of factorials, such as the fact that n! is always even for n^2 .

- Number Theoretic Functions: This result has implications for the study of number theoretic functions, such as the Euler phi-function and the Möbius function.

- Applications in Computer Science: This result has applications in computer science, such as in algorithms for solving problems related to factorials and permutations.
