**Part I** On a certain university campus there is
an infestation of Norway rats. It is estimated that the number of
rats on campus will follow a logistic model of the form
P(t)=50001+Be−ktP(t)=50001+Be−kt.

**A)** It is estimated that there were 500 rats on
campus on January 1, 2010 and 750 on April 1, 2010. Using this
information, find an explicit formula for P(t)P(t) where tt is
years since January 1, 2010. (Assume April 1, 2010 is
t=.25t=.25.)

P(t)= P(t)= .

**B)** What was the rat population on October 1,
2010?

rats.

**C)** How fast was the rat population growing on
April 1, 2010?

rats per year.

**D)** According to our logistic model, when will the
rat population hit 2,500 rats?

years after January 1, 2010.

**E)** Rats live in communal nests and the more rats
there are, the closer they live together. Suppose the total volume
of the rats' nests is F=0.64P+4−−−−−−−−√−2F=0.64P+4−2 cubic meters
when there are PP rats on campus.

When there are 750 rats, what is the total volume of the rats'
nests and how fast is the mass of nests growing with respect to
time?

The total volume is cubic meters and the volume is
increasing at cubic meters per year.

**F)** One of the reasons that the rats' population
growth slows down is overcrowding. What is the population density
of the rats' nests when there are 750 rats and how fast is the
population density increasing at that time?

The population density is rats per cubic meter and the
population density is increasing at rats per cubic meter
per year.

- A screening test is applied to a population of 1,000 in which
the prevalence of the disease in question is 10%. The sensitivity
of this test is 96% and the specificity is 92%. The cost of
screening the 1000 people is $50 (fifty dollars) per person. A
newer screening test has the same sensitivity, a specificity of
96%, but costs $0.50 (fifty cents)
per test than the older screening test. For each person with a positive result from either test, a follow-up diagnostic test must be done that costs an additional $50 (fifty dollars).*more*- Calculate how much money would be saved or lost by choosing the
newer screening test (
**1**)?

Let gcd(a, p) = 1 with p a prime. Show that if a has at least one square root, then a has exactly 2 roots. [hint: look at generators or use x^2 = y^2 (mod p) and use the fact that ab = 0 (mod p) the one of a or b must be 0(why?) ]

(Lot sizing) The demand for a product is known to be dt units in periods t = 1,...,n. If we produce the product in period t, we incur a machine setup cost ft which does not depend on the number of units produced plus a production cost pt per unit produced. We may produce any number of units in any period. Any inventory carried over from period t to period t + 1 incurs an inventory cost it per unit carried over. Initial inventory is s0. Formulate a mixed integer linear program in order to meet the demand over the n periods while minimizing overall costs.

1. Consider the implication: If it is snowing, then I will go cross country skiing. (a) Write the converse of the implication. (b) Write the contrapositive of the implication. (c) Write the inverse of the implication.

2. For each of the following, use truth tables to determine whether or not the two given statements are logically equivalent using truth tables. Be sure to state your conclusions. (a) p → (q ∧ r) and (p → q) ∧ (p → r) (b) (¬p ∧ (p → q)) → ¬q and T

3. Give a two-column proof in the style of Section 2.6 which shows the following symbolic argument is valid. (¬p ∨ q) → r s ∨ ¬q ¬t p → t (¬p ∧ r) → ¬s ∴ ¬q 4. Let K(x, y) be the predicate ”x knows y” where the domain of discourse for x and y is the set of all people. Use quantifiers to express each of the following statements. (a) Alice knows everyone. (b) Someone knows George. (c) There is someone who nobody knows. (d) There is someone who knows no one. (e) Everyone knows someone. 5. Again consider the predicate K(x, y) defined in Exercise 4. Negate in symbols the propositions (a), (c), and (e) from Exercise 4. Note: Of course, an easy way to do tis is to simply write ¬ in front of the answers for Exercise

6. One more time, consider the predicate K(x, y) from Exercises 4 and 5. Negate in smooth English the propositions (a), (c), and (e) from Exercise 4. Note: An easy way to do this is to simply write It is not the case that ... in front of each proposition. Don’t do that! Give the negation as a reasonably natural smooth English sentence.

7. Three mathematicians are seated in a restaurant. The server: ”Does everyone want coffee?” The first mathematician: ”I do not know.” The second mathematician: ”I do not know.” The third mathematician: ”No, not everyone wants coffee.” The server comes back and gives coffee to the mathematicians who want it. Which mathematicians received coffee? How did the waiter deduce who wanted coffee?

A circus clown is to be fired from a cannon at an angle of 60 degress to the horizontal with an initial

speed of 60 ft/sec. The clown is supposed to hit a cushion located 100 ft away. The circus is

held in a building with 50 ft ceilings.

- Can the performer be fired to the cushion without hitting the ceiling?
- Will the clown land on the cushion? If not, will he land short or long of the mark?
- What angle should be used to have the clown land directly on the cushion?

How many ±1-sequences of length n are there?For example, (1, −1, −1, 1) is not a happy sequence, because although 1 ≥ 0 and 1 − 1 ≥ 0,the sum 1−1−1 is negative, so the condition fails for k = 3.

Problem 2.55. Consider the dihedral group D3 introduced in Problem 2.21. To give us a common starting point, let’s assume the triangle and hole are positioned so that one of the tips of the triangle is pointed up. Let r be rotation by 120◦ in the clockwise direction and let s be the reflection in D3 that fixes the top of the triangle.

(a) Describe the action of r −1 on the triangle and express r −1 as a word using r only.

(b) Describe the action of s −1 on the triangle and express s −1
as a word using s only.

(c) Prove that D3 = hr, si by writing every element of D3 as a word
in r or s.

(d) Is {r, s} a minimal generating set for D3 ?

(e) Explain why there is no single generating set for D3 consisting of a single element. This proves that D3 is not cyclic.

It is important to point out that the fact that {r, s} is a minimal generating set for D3 does not imply that D3 is not a cyclic group. There are examples of cyclic groups that have minimal generating sets consisting of more than one element (see Problem 2.70).
