The midterm exam will be held during class on Friday February 26. No calculators or electronic devices are permitted.
- Do the following experiment. Generate 40 random numbers between 10000 and 20000. What fraction of them are prime? Roughly how many did you expect to be prime (compare exercise 3.19)?
- Problem 3.1(a). Also, describe the algorithm that is used to solve the problem.
- Problem 3.7
- Problem 3.6(a),(b-i,b-iii). In part (b), use the method you present in part (a).
- Problem 3.8
- Problem 3.9(d). (Don’t just factor N in Wolfram Alpha. Use the given method.)
- Problem 3.11
Think seriously about question 2.1. It is not necessary to submit an essay. No written response is needed.
