Could you help me at the following exercise?

With how many ways can we choose a man and a woman that are not married to each other from n married couples?

I thought that it is (n-1)

^{n},but I am not sure.Can you tell me if it is right?

How is regular defined? One definition is: A language is regular :<=> there exists a regular grammar that produces the language Can you find such a grammar? I am facing difficulties,finding a grammar or expession.If the word should be divisible by 5,it would be (1|2|4|5|7|9)*5 ,but what happens whe...

Hey!

How can I show ,without the use of a DFA,that the language L={w:w in {1,2,4,5,7,9}*, w as a decimal gets divided completely by 7} is regular?

Thanks in advance!

You basically have to show that there is a string xyz (amt using your notation) that is in the language, but at least one of the xy i z is not in the language. Since the pumping lemma is true for all regular languages, the language is therefore not regular. Could you explain me further how to do th...

I write you what I have done until now:

n=1: E=(2c+c/2)/2=5c/4=5^{1}c/2^{2*1}

n=2: E=(4c+2c+c/4)/4=25c/16=5^{2}c/2^{2*2}

n=3: E=(14c+3c/2+c/8)/8=125c/64=5^{3}c/2^{2*3}

etc.

So, playing the game n times, the expected value is E=5^{n}c/2^{2*n}=(5/4)^{n}c.

Is this right???

n=1: E=(2c+c/2)/2=5c/4=5

n=2: E=(4c+2c+c/4)/4=25c/16=5

n=3: E=(14c+3c/2+c/8)/8=125c/64=5

etc.

So, playing the game n times, the expected value is E=5

Is this right???
