Working through the above counting problem. I got 48 using the Inclusion-Exclusion Principle, do you agree?

I don't see how you got to 48.

I assume we're working in the natural numbers so 99 numbers less than 100 all together. Any number divisible by a square number > 1 is divisible by a prime square.
1. 24 are divisible by 4.
2. 11 are divisible by 9 - two of which (36 and 72) are already counted above.
3. 3 are divisible by 25,
4. 2 are divisible by 49
Total of 24+(11−2)+3+2=38 are divisible by squares > 1, so 61 numbers < 100 are not divisible by a square number > 1.

I believe this question involves the rule of sum and the fundamental counting principle. I think my logic here is wrong, but I hope you could correct it.
(26 P 2 + 26 P 3)(10 P 4) = 8.19*10^7

Prove that each positive integer can be written in form of 2 k q, where q is odd, and k is a non-negative integer.
Hint: Use induction, and the fact that the product of two odd numbers is odd.
( x + y ) n = k = 0 n C ( n , k ) x n k y k = n 2 + n 2
Prove the above statement by using induction on n.
Let n 1 , n 2 , . . . , n t be positive integers. Show that if n 1 + n 2 + . . . + n t t + 1 objects are placed into t boxes, then for some i, i = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . , t , the ith box contains at least n i objects.

I'm missing something here. Let X = { ( 123 ) , ( 132 ) , ( 124 ) , ( 142 ) , ( 134 ) , ( 143 ) , ( 234 ) , ( 243 ) }, A 4 act on X by conjugation (inner automorphisms) and x = ( 123 ), then 4 = | O ( x ) | = | G | / | G x | = 12 / | G x | . However, G x = { 1 }
What's wrong here?

I have this question,
The number of different words that can be formed using all the letters of the word “MATHEMATICS” are?
I solved using the logic that if there are total 11 places so at all the 11 places all the 11 words can come, which gives me 11 to the power 11which is then divided by 2 ! 2 ! 2 !\ due to the words M, T and A appearing 3 times.
But the actual solution is 11 ! / ( 2 ! 2 ! 2 ! ), why did they consider “not repetition” ?

50 students traveled to Europe, last year. Of these, 12 visited Amsterdam, 13 went to Berlin, and 15 were in Copenhagen. Some visited two cities: 3 visited both Amsterdam and Berlin, 6 visited Amsterdam and Copenhagen, and 5 visited Berlin and Copenhagen. But only 2 visited all three cities.
Question : How many students visited Copenhagen, but neither Amsterdam nor Berlin?
I have done the graph and I think the answer is 6 but I would like to learn how to compute it.

There are two fundamental principles of counting; Fundamental principle of addition and fundamental principle of multiplication.

I often got confused applying them. I know that if there are two jobs, say m and n, such that they can be performed independently in m and n ways respectively, then either of the two jobs can be performed in m + n ways and when two jobs are performed in succession, they can be performed in m × n ways.

My question is how to identify whether jobs are independent or in succession?

Is there any simple way to identify this? Are there any keywords?

i'm seeking out thoughts for a 15-hour mathematical enrichment course in a chinese language high faculty. What (pretty) simple concern would you advocate as a subject for any such course?
historical past/issues:
My students are generally pretty good at math, but many of them have no longer been uncovered to rigorous or summary mathematical reasoning. an amazing topic would be one that could not be impossibly hard for students who have by no means written or study proofs in English.
i have taught this magnificence three times earlier than. (a part of the purpose that i'm posting that is that i have used up all my thoughts!) the primary semester I taught an introductory range theory elegance (which meandered its way toward a proof of quadratic reciprocity, though I think this become in the end too advanced/abstract for some of the students). the second one semester I taught fundamental graph idea and packages (with a focal point on planarity and coloring). The 1/3 semester I taught a class at the Rubik's dice.
the students' math backgrounds are pretty numerous: a number of them take part in contest math competitions, and so are familiar with IMO-fashion techniques, however many aren't. a number of them may additionally realize some calculus, however I cannot assume it. all of them are superb at what in the united states is on occasion termed "pre-calculus": trigonometry, conic sections, systems of linear equations (though, shockingly, no matrices), and the like. They realize what a binomial coefficient is.
So, any ideas? preferably, i'd like to find some thing a bit "sexy" (like the Rubik's cube) -- tries to encourage wide variety theory through cryptography seemed to fall on deaf ears, however being capable of "see" institution idea on the cube became pretty popular.
(Responses specifically welcome from folks who grew up in the percent -- any mathematical subjects you desire were protected within the excessive college curriculum?)
