Step 1
The level of measurement of the variable “favorite color” is nominal level of measurement, that is, option (B). The nominal level of measurement can be classified as measurement of data where numbers are only used to classify the data and numbers do not have any quantitative meaning. The words, letters and the alpha-numeric symbols can also be used in this level of measurement.
Step 2
The option, “Ordinal” can be correct because the favorite color does not have a defined order. Similarly, the properties of ratio and interval level of measurement is not fulfilled by the variable “favorite color”.
Hence, option (B), “Nominal” is the correct level of measurement.

Consider the set of natural numbers N with the σ-algebra P ( N ) and the count measure μ. If f : N [ 0 , ), then
f d μ = n = 1 f ( n ) .
I feel that I need to prove at first that f is a measurable function and then define a sequence f n L + s. t. f = n f n , but I have no idea if it's the right way nor how to do it. I need help.
Note: I can use any theorem, no restrictions.

How to simplify a diabolical expression involving radicals
A friend and I have been working on this problem for hours - how can the following expression be simplified analytically?
It equals 1 2 ,, and we have tried the following to no avail:
1. Substitution of x = 5
2. Substitution of x = 2 5
3. Substitution of x = 5 + 5
4. Substitution of x = 5 + 5
5. Manipulations by substituting the golden ratio
Here goes:
5 + 2 5 2 + 5 ( 5 + 2 5 ) 4 10 + 2 5 8 5 ( 5 + 2 5 ) 4 + 5 5 + 2 5 4
Thanks in advance for any help.
