Infinitely many answers questions are possible to the answer, “No”. So, our real task should be to find one of THOSE many, which seems to be a perfect one.

A simple and the first ever logical approach of giving answers to a question is to derive answers from the question, that is, replace some words of the question with reasonable ones and make a statement. (Conversely but ) Similarly, we can try to derive the questions from the given answer.

what's the question?

 

So, if the answer is “No”.

Since, ‘No’ is the answer… we can ask if this was a question. And since ‘No’ is not a question (as it is an answer), the answer will be obviously, ‘No’…the given one.

Therefore, the very first deduced question may be,

Is this a question?

Agree?

What other questions could you make from above answer which were completely logical? What would be the question, if the answer was ‘Yes’?

The Collatz Conjecture is one of the Unsolved problems in mathematics, especially in Number Theory. The Collatz Conjecture is also termed as 3n+1 conjecture, Ulam Conjecture, Kakutani’s Problem, Thwaites Conjecture, Hasse’s Algorithm, Syracuse Problem.

Real Sequences

Sequence of real numbers A sequence of real numbers (or a real sequence) is defined as a function $ f: \mathbb{N} \to \mathbb{R}$ , where $ \mathbb{N}$ is the set of natural numbers and $ \mathbb{R}$ is the set of real numbers. Thus, $ f(n)=r_n, \ n \in \mathbb{N}, \ r_n \in \mathbb{R}$ is a function which produces a sequence…

What is Real Analysis?

Real analysis is the branch of Mathematics in which we study the development on the set of real numbers. We reach on real numbers through a series of successive extensions and generalizations starting from the natural numbers. In fact, starting from the set of natural numbers we pass on successively to the set of integers, the set of rational numbers…
