Given that a|b and b|c.Therefore there exists integers m & n such that b=na & c=mb respectively.

Then c=mb=mna(since b=na).since mn is an integer, so this implies that a|c

Then c=mb=mna(since b=na).since mn is an integer, so this implies that a|c

Interpreting z-scores: Complete the following statements using your knowledge about z-scores.

a. If the data is weight, the z-score for someone who is overweight would be

-positive

-negative

-zero

b. If the data is IQ test scores, an individual with a negative z-score would have a

-high IQ

-low IQ

-average IQ

c. If the data is time spent watching TV, an individual with a z-score of zero would

-watch very little TV

-watch a lot of TV

-watch the average amount of TV

d. If the data is annual salary in the U.S and the population is all legally employed people in the U.S., the z-scores of people who make minimum wage would be

Evaluate fraction of sum

So i have to evaluate this sum:

$\frac{1-{2}^{-2}+{4}^{-2}-{5}^{-2}+{7}^{-2}-{8}^{-2}+{10}^{-2}-{11}^{-2}+\cdots}{1+{2}^{-2}-{4}^{-2}-{5}^{-2}+{7}^{-2}+{8}^{-2}-{10}^{-2}-{11}^{-2}+\cdots}$

it has the form :$\frac{\sum _{0}^{\mathrm{\infty}}[{(3n+1)}^{-2}-{(3n+2)}^{-2}]}{\sum _{0}^{\mathrm{\infty}}{(-1)}^{n}[{(3n+1)}^{-2}+{(3n+2)}^{-2}]}$

My current attempt : Trying to convert this into power series

$a\left(n\right)={(3n+1)}^{-2}-{(3n+2)}^{-2}\text{}\text{}\text{}\text{}\text{}\text{}b\left(n\right)={(3n+1)}^{-2}+{(3n+2)}^{-2}$

Can a(n) and b(n) be the definite integral of certain polynomial function f(x) ?

Maybe there is a better direction. Can someone give me a hint ?

1. Why are units so important in measurement? Giving examples of measurements with no units should help.

2. What does it mean to say that 2 expressions are equivalent?

Intuitively, why does $\frac{a}{c}}={\displaystyle \frac{1}{\frac{c}{a}}$?

For intuition, I reference objects. Imagine making a dessert with: $a$ as apples and $c$ as chestnuts.

Question. How and why is

$\frac{a}{c}}\phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}(3)\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}{\displaystyle \frac{{1}}{{\displaystyle \frac{c}{a}}}}\phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}(4)\phantom{\rule{2em}{0ex}}?$

I ask only about intuition; please omit formal arguments and proofs (eg: Intuition is not generated by the explanation that rationalising (4)'s denominator produces (3)).
