...is ‘mx1’ column vector If the ‘b’ vector is a zero vector i.e. all the elements of this vector are zero, then the system of equations is called a ‘Homogeneous System’ If the ‘b’ vector is non-zero vector i.e. if even one of the elements is non-zero then the system of equations is termed as ‘Nonhomogenous System’. Q1. (e) A homogeneous system always has a trivial solution i.e. a solution vector with all the elements being zero. However, for a homogeneous system to **have** a non-trivial solution the Determinant of Matrix A must be equal to zero. i.e. for non – trivial solution of Ax = b (b = 0) Determinant A = 0 Q2. (a) The profile of the boiler shell is made by revolution of a parabola. Let us assume that equation of the...

..." and this attitude is easy to adopt if a person has had earlier problems with elementary **mathematics**. (Dedyna 2002, Press).

The Goldbach Conjecture
In 1742, Goldbach suggested that every integer greater than 2 could be written as the sum of 3 primes. However, Goldbach considered the number 1 to be prime, Euler reformulated Goldbach’s statement to propose that: all even integers greater than 2 can be written as the sum of 2 primes, and this is now known as the Goldbach Conjecture. This paper explores the progress that has been made towards the proof of this conjecture to date.
The above statement is the strong/even/binary conjecture. The weak/odd/tertiary conjecture is an implication of the above, and is as...

...1. An instance in my daily life where I rely on the skills of rounding and estimating is when I do the grocery shopping. In order to get a fair estimate of what my bill is up to, I roughly calculate the value of each shopping item by rounding to the closest whole number. An occupation such as a shop teller would need to **have** sound multiplication and division skills because their job requires them to give and receive the right amount of change.
2. The concept of negative numbers is harder to grasp because there cannot be anything less than nothing, which is what zero is. An example of where it is important to understand integers in the financial world is with banking (Glydon). If someone spends more than they...
