# (a) Check that the formula for F given at the end of Example 7.4.2 produces the correct values for n=1,2,3, and 4. (b) Use the floor function to write a formula for F as a single algebraic expression for each positive integer n.

To determine

(a)

To check:

The formula for F produces the correct values for n=1,2,3 and 4, where F(n)={n2     if nis an even positive integer.n12  ifn is an odd positive integer

Explanation

Given information:

F(n)={n2     if nis an even positive integer.n12  ifn is an odd positive integer

Calculation:

The function F is defined from + to  and it is described by the formula.

F(n)={n2     if nis an even positive integer.n12  ifn is an odd positive integer

To determine

(b)

To write:

The formula for F using the Floor function.
