I would appreciate anyone's contribution for the following exercises : 1)Find the values of a so that the operation $\displaystyle x * y = x + y  xy  ax  ay +a $ is stable in the set [0;1] //// First one was solved 2) For a=0, find a formula for $\displaystyle \overbrace{x*x*x*x* .....*x}^{ntimes} $.

$x^n = (1)^{n1}x^n + \displaystyle{\sum_{k=1}^{n1}}~(1)^{k1} \begin{pmatrix}n \\ k \end{pmatrix}x^k$ I leave it to you to prove this via induction.

When $a = 0$, $\overbrace{x*x*x* \cdots *x}^{n\text{ terms}} = 1  (1x)^n$. Last edited by quasi; January 6th, 2017 at 09:06 AM.
