CSC 2510 Test 3
1. Give the names of the formula or rule that provides the answer for each of the following problems. Do not try to solve the problems!
How many cards must be selected from a standard deck of 52 cards to guarantee that at least three cards of the same suit are chosen?
Givens: Standard deck = 4 suits
Find: max(suit1 + suit1 + suit1 + suit1) ≤ 3 + 1
max(2 + 2 + 2 + 2) ≤ 3
Answer: Sum rule (Pigeon hole accepted also)
max(2 + 2 + 2 + 2) ≤ 3 + 1 = 9
(You can chose 2 (indistinguishable) from each group before the next card will ensure that you have three of a suit)
How many bit strings of length eight either start with a 1 bit or end with the two bits 10?
There are 28 strings = 256 possible strings.
1/2 of the strings begin with 1 for 128 strings
1/4 of the strings end in 10 for 1/4 * 28 = 64 strings
But 1/2 of the 1/4 * 28 for 32 strings also start with 1 so they must be subtracted out again. 128 + 64 - 32 = 160.
Subtraction rule.
How many bit strings of length n are there?
Given:bit strings = 2 choices
length = n (or repeated n times)
bits are indistinguishable
each choice is either a 0 or a 1
2n
(two choices for each bit - choicestimes)
How many ways can you solve a task if the task can be done in one of n1 ways or in one of n2 ways?
Given: n1ways +n2 ways
Answer: Sum rule
Convert the octal value 7016 to binary.
70168 = 111 000 001 110
Convert the octal digits to binary in groups of three using the table.
= 1110000011102
Convert the octal value 7016 to hex.
70168 = 111 000 001 110
Convert the octal digits to binary in groups of three using the table.
1110000011102
Then regroup into groups of 4 start from right:
1110 0000 11102
Then convert to hex using table (you should learn the conversion:
1110 0000 11102 = E0E16
Convert the octal value 7016 to decimal.
70168 = 7 * 83 + 0 *82 + 1 *81 + 6 *80
= 7 * 512 + 0 + 8 + 6
= 3584 + 8 + 6
= 359810
Convert decimal 17861 to hex.
17861/16 = 1116 mod 5
1116/16 = 69 mod 12 = C
69/16 = 4 mod 5
4/16 = 0 mod 4
= 45C516
(remainder of 0 indicates we are finished)
Convert decimal 1740 to octal.
1740/8 = 217 mod 4
217/8 = 27 mod 1
27/8 = 3 mod 3
3/8 = 0 mod 3
= 33148
(remainder of 0 indicates we are finished)
What formula would you use in each of the following cases?
Example: permutation: P(n) = n!.
A procedure has n1 ways to do task 1 andn2 ways to do task 2:
n1*n2or product rule
A task may use one of group n1or one of n2 to do a task:
n1+n2or sum rule
(no overlap between groups – all tasks are independent)
An ordered arrangement of r elements:
P(n,r) orn!/(n - r)! or n(n-1)(n-2)...(n-r+1)
(r ordered elements out of n)
The number of r-permutations of a set of n objects with repetition:
nr
(with repetition means that each time you get to choice n items – the amount you can choice never gets smaller than n so that you choice nr times)
An unordered selection of r elements from a set with n distinct elements:
C(n, r) or n!/(r! * (n-r)!)
(unordered is a combination and divides r! back out – (the duplicates))
The number of r-permutations of a set of n objects with repetition:
nr
(Same question as 3.d.)
The number of ways to select r items from n indistinguishable objects:
(Think cookies).
(thesize of r may be greater than, less than, or equal to the size of n)
C(n + r -1, r)
orC(n + r - 1, n -1)
orfactorial expansion of the above
C(n + r -1, r) = C(n + r - 1, n -1) because
(n+ r-1)/((n+r-1-r)!*r!) = (n+ r-1)/((n-1+(r-r))!*r!) = (n+ r-1)/((n-1)!*r!)
The number of ways to select r items from n indistinguishable objects and do it until less than r items remains:
C(n,r)C(n-r,r)C(n-r-r,r) * (etc.)
(Any expression of same.)
Give the Euclidean Algorithm for greatest common divisor:
proceduregcd(a, b: positive integers)
x := a
y := b
while y 0
r := x mod y
x := y
y := r
return x
{gcd(a, b) is x}
or
proceduregcd(a, b: positive integers)
x := a
y := b
if y = 0
return x
return gcd(y, x mod y)
or
proceduregcd(a, b: positive integers)
if b = 0
return a
return gcd(b, a modb)
Showing the steps, find gcd(91, 287):
287/91 = 91 * 3 + 14
91/14 = 14 * 6 + 7
14/7 = 7 * 2 + 0 (remainder of 0 indicates we are finished)

Let P(n) be the statement that
12 + 32 + 52+ ... + (2n + 1)2= (n + 1)(2n + 1)(2n + 3)/3whenever n is a nonnegative integer.
Be sure to use the formal proof that includes Basis Step.
Basis step: Show that P(0) is true.
Let n = 0.
Then (2(0) + 1)2= ((0) + 1)(2(0) + 1) (2(0) + 3)/3
1= (1)(1)(3)/3 = 1.
Since both sides equal 1, P(0) must be true
Induction Hypotheses:
12 + 32 + 52 + ... + (2k + 1)2= (k + 1)(2k + 1)(2k + 3)/3
Induction Step:
Show that
12 + 32 + 52+ ... + (2k + 1)2 + (2(k+1) + 1)2= ((k + 1) + 1)(2(k + 1) + 1)(2(k + 1) + 3)/3 is true.
Proof:
12 + 32 + 52 + ... + (2k + 1)2+ (2(k+1) + 1)2= ((k + 1) + 1)(2(k + 1) + 1)(2(k + 1) + 3)/3
(k + 1)(2k + 1)(2k + 3)/3 + (2(k+1) + 1)2= ((k + 1) + 1)(2(k + 1) + 1)(2(k + 1) + 3)/3
(k + 1)(2k + 1)(2k + 3)/3 + 3/3 * (2k + 3)2= ((k + 2)(2k + 3)(2k + 5)/3
((k + 1)(2k + 1)(2k + 3) + 3(2k + 3)2)/3 = ((k + 2)(2k + 3)(2k + 5)/3
(k + 1)(2k + 1)(2k + 3) + 3(2k + 3)2= ((k + 2)(2k + 3)(2k + 5)
(k + 1)(2k + 1) + 3(2k + 3) = ((k + 2)(2k + 5)
2k2 + 3k + 1 + 6k + 9 = 2k2 + 9k + 10
2k2 + 9k + 10 = 2k2 + 9k + 10
1 = 1
We have shown that the induction hypotheses is true by showing that the left side equals the right side for k + 1.
Give a recursive algorithm (in the pseudo format specified in appendix A3)
for computing:ni=0 i.
procedureseries(n; integer)
If n = 0 return 0
return n + series (n-1)
{returns the sum of the first n values}
Show the value of ni=0 i generated at each step from 0 to n = 4.
means sum, so each value is added to the previous
( means product, so each value is multiplied to the previous)
2n
Same question as 3.d and 3.f.
b. How many bit strings of length 16 are there? 216
(two choices for each bit - choicestimes)
2n
(Same answer as a.)
What rule would you use to compute how many bit strings of length eight either start with a 1 bit or end with the two bits 10?
Subtraction rule
(1/2 of 28plus 1/4 of 28minus 1/4 of 1/2 of 22)
(areas common to both need to be subtracted out)
How many bit strings of length eight either start with a 1 bit orend with the two bits 10?
(1/2 of 28=) 128 + (1/4 of 28 = ) 64- (1/4 of 1/2 of 26 = ) 32 = 160

52!/((52-13)! 13!) * 39!/((39-13)! 13!) * 26!/((26-13)! 13!) * 13!/((13-13)!13!) =
52! / (39! 13!) * 39! / (26! 13!) * 26! / (13! 13!) * 13! / (0! 13!) =
