Discrete math
Prove directly
For n∈N, if n is odd, then 3n+1 is even
For x,y∈R, if x and y are rational, then x+2y is rational
Prove by contrapositive
For n ∈N if n^3 is odd, then n is odd

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first one.. n is odd so it can be written as 2k+1 3n+1 = 3(2k+1) +1 = 6k +4 = 2(3k+2) and this is even for any k
