Representing a sentence with quantified statements
My approach to this question: x ( P ( x ) R ( x ) )
I cannot verify if my answer is correct, any help to verify my answer would be appreciated and if I did wrong any help to explain why would also be appreciated.

Step 1
Your answer is on the right track, but it is saying “if x is a student then x is shy.”
We are looking for a person who is a student and is shy. Reason why, if someone is a student doesn’t necessarily make them shy, but there is a student that is shy.
Step 2
So the correct translation would be, x ( P ( x ) R ( x ) ). This translation is saying x is shy and x is a student.
Not exactly what you’re looking for?

Equivalence Relation on N { 1 }
A 1 = { ( x , y ) : x  and  y  are relatively prime } .
Determine which one of the three properties are satisfied:
1) ( 2 , 2 ) A 1 . So it is not reflexive.
2) ( 2 , 3 ) ( 3 , 2 ) A 1 . Is symmetric.
3) (2,3) and ( 3 , 4 ). Is not transitive.
That means, A 1 is not an equivalence relation. Is it okay? Thanks in advance!

Equivalence of mathematical induction and strong induction
Mathematical induction and strong induction are equivalent. That is, each can be shown to be a valid proof technique assuming that the other is valid.
I interpret this to mean that neither proof technique can be used where the other could not be used. That being the case, why bother about strong induction at all?
