Is it possible to interpolate a function to calculate the number of terms in the discriminant? I tried to read wiki for this but couldn't understand it.Log in to reply

\( \dfrac{dy}{dx} = \dfrac{1 + \dfrac{y}{x} + (\dfrac{y}{x})^2 + (\dfrac{y}{x})^3}{1 + \dfrac{y}{x} + (\dfrac{y}{x})^3}\)

\( \dfrac{y}{x}= v\)

\( x\dfrac{dv}{dx} + v = \dfrac{1 + v + v^2 + v^3}{v^3 + v + 1}\)

\( x\dfrac{dv}{dx} = \dfrac{1 - v^4}{v^3 + v + 1}\)

\( \dfrac{v^3 + v + 1}{1 - v^4} dv = \dfrac{1}{x}dx\)

\( \dfrac{v(v^2+1)}{(1 + v^2)(1- v^2)} + \dfrac{1}{(1 + v^2)(1- v^2)} = \dfrac{1}{x}dx\)

\( \dfrac{v}{1 + v^2} + \dfrac{1}{2}( \dfrac{1}{1 + v^2} + \dfrac{1}{1 - v^2}) = \dfrac{1}{x}dx\)

=\( \dfrac{1}{2}ln{(1+v^2)} + \dfrac{1}{2}(tan^{-1}v) + \dfrac{1}{4}(ln(\dfrac{1 - v}{1 + v}) = lnx + lnC\) – Megh Choksi · 1 year, 9 months ago

4) \(x^5 = 1\)

\( \dfrac{x^4}{x^5} + \dfrac{x^3}{x^5} + x^2 + x + 1 =0\)

But why you are finding root???? I mean how..will this give all values of x such that the given expression is perfect square.......i am not able to understand your solution..plz helpLog in to reply

How did you get \( x^5 = 1 \)?Log in to reply

No where in the question does it mention that \( x \) is the fifth root of unity.Log in to reply

That is what I asked @megh choksi. How does using \(x^5 = 1\)help in getting pefect squared values for the expresion. In a hurry Megh must have misread the question, and found its roots what is not wanted at all.Log in to reply

– Megh Choksi · 1 year, 9 months ago

Sorry I wrote a method to find its rootsLog in to reply

Am I right? let \(\alpha\)=a \(\beta\)=b \(\gamma\)=c Then, \(a^2+ab+b^2-c^2\)=o a=\(\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4b^2+4c^2}}{2}\)...........(1) The discriminant should be a perfect square.\(\Rightarrow 4c^2-3b^2\)=0 or a perfect square. \(\Rightarrow\) c=b= prime perfect square.(couldn't there be any other possibilities where b is not equal to c ?please check ) on substituting in (1) we can get values for \(\alpha\) , \(\beta\), \(\gamma\). – Naren Ezhil · 1 year, 9 months ago

Megh Choksi--- I think there is some mistake between the 3rd and 4th step!! as there is a term remaining in numerator that is v^3 – Saurabh Patil · 1 year, 9 months ago

\( \dfrac{v^3 + v + 1}{1 + v^3 - v^4} dv = \dfrac{1}{x}dx\)

\( 1 + \dfrac{v + v^4}{1 + v^3 - v^4} = \dfrac{1}{x}dx\)

1) Please comment on this,

Rhs can't be even as sum of 3 odd primes will give always a prime,

If \(\alpha =2 , Then~ \beta\) will be an odd prime, and on RHS is also odd prime ,thus \(\alpha=2~or\beta=2\)

\( 4 + 2\alpha + \alpha^2 = \gamma^2\)

\( (\alpha + 1)^2 - \gamma^2 = -3\)

\( This ~can't~be ~possible~for~primes \to \boxed{(\alpha + \gamma + 1)(\alpha - \gamma + 1) = -3}\) – Megh Choksi · 1 year, 9 months ago
