Since you have asked multiple questions, we will solve the first question for you. If you want any specific question to be solved then please specify the question number or post only that question.
1)
Inclusion-Exclusion Formula:
If A and B are any two finite sets, then |AB|=|A|+|B||AB|.
Let H, M be the sets of seniors whose major is History and Math respectively.
It is given that 523 seniors are history majors or math majors or both.
Thus, |HM|=523.
It is given that 100 seniors are math majors.
Thus, |M|=100.
The number of seniors majoring in math and history are 33.
Thus, |HM|=33.
Step 2
Evaluate the number of seniors majoring in History using Inclusion-Exclusion principle as follows.
|HM|=|H|+|M||HM|
523=|H|+10033
523=|H|+67
|H|=52367
|H|=456
Therefore, the number of seniors majoring in History is 456.

Determine all n-vertex simple graphs G such that every induced subgraph of G with 3 vertices has either 1 or 2 edges.
Let n 5. Determine all n-vertex simple graphs G such that every induced subgraph of G with 3 vertices has either 1 or 2 edges.
One thing I could understand is that there is no triangle in the graph.

At a High school, 70% of the seniors have taken an advance calculus course. Of those who have taken Advanced Calculus, 60% will apply for a Pre-Health science major when they apply for college admission. Of those who have not taken advanced calculus, 40% will apply for a Pre-Health science major when they apply for college admission. A senior is selected at random. What is the probability that the senior have taken advanced calculus, given that the senior will apply for a pre-health science major?

Prove that set is uncountable
{ f f : N { 0 , 1 } } { f f : { 0 , 1 } N }
Where f is a function. Prove that this difference is an uncountable set.
I am pretty stuck on how to start this problem. I understand that the set from 0 to 1 is uncountable while the set of natural numbers is countable, but I can't seem to start off the proof.

Determine the maximum collection of edge-disjoint xy-paths in Q n
Let x be the vertex of all zeros and y be the vertex of all ones in the hypercube graph Q n . We have to determine the maximum collection of edge-disjoint xy-paths in Q n and a minimum vertex cut of Q n separating x and y.
My work: We define a xy-path P i as follows:
Start from the vertex x and change the i t h bit to 1 and then change all bits gradually one by one moving leftward from i 1 to 1 to n and back to i.
Note that all paths P i are edge-disjoint. Thus we have a maximum collection.
By Menger's Theorem, the second part follows.

Is there an algorithm to define a recursive function such that consecutive terms approach any arbitrary constant?
The Fibonacci sequence is defined by the recursive function, f ( n ) = f ( n 1 ) + f ( n 2 ). Consecutive terms in this sequence approach the constant, 1 + 5 2 . Is there an algorithm that produces recursive functions such that f ( n ) / f ( n 1 ) approaches any arbitrary algebraic constant?
