Discrete Mathematics With Applicationsa. Let x be any positive real number. Use mathematical induction to prove that for every integer m ≥ 1 , if x ≤ 1 then x m ≤ 1 . b. Explain how it follows from part (a) that if x is any positive real number, then for every integer m ≥ 1 , if then x > 1 . c. Explain how it follows from part (b) that if x is any positive real number, then for every integer m ≥ 1 , if x > 1 then x 1 / 3 > 1 . d. Let p , q , r , and s be positive integers, and suppose p / q > r / s . Use part (c) and the result of exercise 40 to prove Theorem 11.2.2. In other words, show that for any integer n , if n > 1 then n p / q > n r / s .BuyFind*arrow_forward*
