**14. Show that [2x] + [2y] >= [x] + [y] + [x + y] whenever x and y are real numbers.
**Solution: We have to show that

[2x]+[2y]>=[x]+[y]+[x+y]

Where x,y are real numbers

We write x,y as

x=n+\epsilon

y=m+\delta

Where n,m are integers and \epsilon,\delta are non-negative real numbers less than 1.

There are two possibilities for the right hand side.

n+m+(n+m)=2n+2m

Or

n+m+(n+m+1)=2n+2m+1

If

\epsilon+\delta>=1

There are two possibilities for the left hand side.

\lceil2x\rceil=\begin{cases} 2n & \epsilon<1/2\\ 2n+1 & otherwise \end{cases}

And

\lceil2y\rceil=\begin{cases} 2m &\delta<1/2\\ 2m+1 & otherwise \end{cases}

We are trying to prove that the right hand side is always less than or equal to the left hand side. We construct a proof by contradiction and assume that right hand side is greater than left hand side. So the right hand side must be 2n+2m+1 and the left hand side must be 2n+2m

But then,

\epsilon+\delta>=1

So at least one of them must be equal to or greater than 1/2

So the left hand side cannot equal 2n+2m

Hence we arrive at a contradiction and end the proof.

Hi my friend! I want to say that this post is amazing, nice written and include approximately all important infos. I would like to see more posts like this.

Having read this I thought it was rather informative.

I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this article together.
