Re: BR Maths Corner-1

sorry. it should read if k is odd, f(n) = 2n else f(n) = 0. that simply captures both cases f(n) = 2n and f(n) = 0. as for the function having an inverse, I think I can prove that. I am multitasking.

f(n) = 2^k n, k integer greater than 0.
f(n) = 2^k n will not work, as one can easily see even for k=2 or f(n) = 4 (n)
and if you put a=b=1, LHS = 8+8 =16 while RHS is 32 :(.

f(n) = 2n will work.!

( and so will f(n)=0 but there are/may be :) other solutions)
