00025 of 2. Very smart. Why don’t you use your rule to show that the next two terms in the sequence 1 3 7 17 41 99 . . , , , , , , 1 2 5 12 29 70 are the fractions 239 577 and 169 408 respectively, and verify that 2392 - 2(169)2 = -1, with 5772 - 2(408)2 = 1? So the next two fractions also follow the plus or minus 1 pattern. ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS Yes, but these two facts prove nothing about the remaining fractions. I realise this. However, you might like to use these two new arrivals to show that 1 7 41 239 577 99 17 3 < < < < 2< < < < 1 5 29 169 408 70 12 2 A further homing in on where 2 lives.

Now that you know m2 is an even number, can you say whether m is even or odd? Could it be either? No. Since the square of an odd number is always odd, it must be that the natural number m is also an even number. So only even numbers square to give even numbers. Simple when you are told the reason. You might like to convince yourself sometime, why the square of an odd number is also an odd number. Anyway, if m is even, it means that it is twice some other natural number, p, say. An example, please.

Show me, please. I enjoyed the last argument even though it used letters. The way to show that it is impossible is to assume that it is possible and arrive at a contradiction. Just like the proof of the irrationality of 2. Just so; and as we’ll see, it is this fact that decides emphatically that the side of a square and its diagonal cannot both be measured exactly with the same ruler. So we’ll assume that there is some ruler that can exactly measure both the side and the diagonal. It’s hard to believe that such a ruler doesn’t exist.
