Homework misprint: An obvious misprint managed to sneak into this second homework, namely in Exercise 6 in Example One, the 1 of the first row of the representing function f should be 2!
Homework correction: I am very grateful to Awasung who pointed out that in Exercise 7a, k can also be zero (not just a natural number). Thank you, Awasung!
Homework misprint (one more): Misprints in mathematical texts can be as annoying as mosquitoes disturbing idyllic moments. I am grateful to Tyson for pointing out that in Exercise 6 s could be any integer ∈ Z (not necessarily just 0 or in N).
