My all time favorite math problem is a proof: The quadratic reciprocity law. For distinct odd primes \(p,q\), show that \[\large (p/q)(q/p)=(-1)^{\frac{p-1}{2}\frac{q-1}{2}}\] (Gauss got so much obsessed with this problem and called it law ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadratic_reciprocity

"the sum of two opposite sides and a diagonal of a quadrilateral is 20cm." Which of the following is true? one side + opposite side + diagonal = 20 cm; or, one side + opposite side = diagonal = 20 cm

the given equation can be rearranged as a^3 - b^3 = 199*200*ab (a-b)(a^2+ab+b^2)=199*200*ab (a-b)(a/b+b/a+1) = 199*200 since the right hand side is integer, it must be the case that a/b+b/a is also an integer only integer value of a/b+b/a is 2 and this doesn't satisfy the equation, so there are no solutions

Cantors argument that the real numbers are uncountable. It suffices to show that \((0,1)\) is uncountable. Suppose it was, then we can make a list as follows \(0.a_1a_2a_3a_4...\) \(0.b_1b_2b_3b_4...\) \(0.c_1c_2c_3c_4...\) \(0.d_1d_2d_3d_4...\) \(0.e_1e_2e_3e_4...\) \(0.f_1f_2f_3f_4...\) . . . Consider the number \(0.abcdef\) where \(a=1\) if \(a_1\ne a\) else \(a=0\) and \(b=1\) if \(b_2\ne b\) else \(b=0\) and \(c=1\) if \(c_3\ne c\) else \(c=0\). It is not on the list!

|dw:1439174881229:dw| Area of entire square \((a+b)^2\) Area of entire square broken into chunks \(4*\frac{2}{1}a*b+c^2\) set them equal \(4*\frac{1}{2}a*b+c^2=(a+b)^2\\\cancel{2ab}+c^2=a^2+\cancel{2ab}+b^2\) \[a^2+b^2=c^2\]

That cantor argument should also say \(a=1\) if \(a_1\ne 1\) else \(a=0\) \(b=1\) if \(b_2\ne 1\) else \(b=0\) . . .

One I missed on the Putnam, many years ago. 1) Given a rectangle with the center identified. 2) Shoot an infinitely elastic point in any direction. 3) Bounce off the infinitely elastic walls if necessary - and it usually will be. 4) The point escapes the rectangle ONLY at the corners. 5) What is the expected number of bounces for the point to exit? Obviously, there are 4 directions with 0 bounces. Obviously, there are 8 directions with 1 bounce. Now what?
