20 Chapter 1 What is a Number? 8 taking reciprocals we get cos a; < sinx < 1. x sin Since cosx = cos(—x) and ^ ^ = V ' ^ , this also holds if x < 0. —X X ' To follow, in detail, the manipulations involving inequalities used here, see the properties of an ordered field given on the page below. Now cos x —• 1 as x —» 0 so the squeezing principle tells us the same is true of ^f-. Notice that the fact that lim^oo ^ ^ = 1 itself implies that the area of a circle of radius r is -nr2. This is done by a process known to the ancient Greeks as the Method of Exhaustion.

When this happens we say these subgroups are conjugate. 2. Observe that conjugate subgroups of a group are isomorphic. 3. Let / : G\ —> G2 be a group homomorphism and let G\ act on / ( G i ) by left multiplication through / . Show this is a transitive action. Show that the stability group is Kerf. Show that the Gi-equivariant equivalence given in the theorem above of this action with the action of G\ on the orbit f(G\) gives the first isomorphism theorem.

Thus 7J = 1 mod(aj) for i 7^ j and 7, = Omod(aj) otherwise. Now given integers xi,x%, •••, Xk, for x = X)i=i X J7J w e have Ef=1Xj7i = XJ7J mod(aj) = Xj. , A;. ak to x and we get a new solution. 8 The Algebra on a Dial We now consider the algebra of numbers on a dial. To make this quite concrete we shall assume the dial resembles a standard clock with twelve marks placed in the usual way except that it has only one hand, the hour hand. (However, we observe that everything we shall say here would apply as well if the number of markings on the dial were any positive integer greater then or equal to two).
