Find the number of Sylow 2-subgroups of the special linear group of order 2 on Z (modulo 3). I think it will be 1. But I failed to prove it using the counting principle. It has 4 sylow 3-subgroups.

Hints: G = S L ( 2 , 3 ) has 24 elements, hence n 2 = # Syl 2 ( G ) = 1 or =3. If n 2 = 1, then a Sylow 2-subgroup must be normal, which is the case indeed. Show that the Sylow 2-subgroup is isomorphic to the quaternion group Q of order 8. Write down the matrices.

A bag contains 8 white marbles and 7 blue marbles. Find the probability of selecting 2 white marbles and 3 blue marbles: (hint: use combinations and fundamental counting principle)
It doesn't say it, but I'm sure there are no replacements. I know it's a combination, but I don't know how 3C2 (enteblack it equals 3) would be the answer because just "3" doesn't sound right.

We are supposed to use the Inclusion-Exclusion principle to solve: "how many bridge hands contain exactly 3 clubs, or exactly 5 diamonds or exactly 3 aces?" I know you do something like: |3 clubs|+|3aces|+|5dimonds| - |3clubs AND 3 aces| - |3clubs AND 5 diamonds| -...... +|all 3 intersected| But I'm really struggling with find the cases where the aces may or may not be a club/diamond.

How many license plates can be made consisting of 2 letters followed by 3 digits (using the fundamental counting principle to solve)? What I know:
1. 26 letters in alphabet, so that means 2 × 26
2. 10 digits possible (0-9), so that means 3 × 10
3. FC principle says given m and n options gets you m × n varieties...
... However, the answer key says "676,000" when I got 1560...

In a computer game, when choosing a character there are 5 choices for hair style, 3 choices for eye color, and 7 choices for outfits. How many different characters are possible if you were to choose 1 hair style, 1 eye color, and 1 outfit?

I tried the Fundamental Counting principle approach: There are 26 black cards to chose from for the first card. That leaves 26 × 25 × 24 × 23 left for the other four cards. So 26 × 26 × 25 × 24 × 23 5 ! (because we can arrange 5 cards in 5 ! ways). I get 77740. Apparently the answer is: 454480.

I'd appreciate help clearing up my misunderstanding. I'd also like to see the combinations approach. Thanks!

A group of pre-school children is drawing pictures ( one child is making one picture ) using 12-colours pencil set. Given that
(i) each pupil employed 5 or more different colours to make his drawing; (ii) there was no identical combination of colours in the different drawings; (iii) the same colour appeared in no more than 20 drawings,
find the maximum number of children who have taken part in this drawing activity.
( As each child can be identified with his/her unique combination of colours, the number of children can not exceed
C(5,12) + C(6,12) + C(7,12) +...+ C(12,12)
But how to NARROW it using the condition (iii) ? )

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?)
