Proof Without Words: If x >0, x + 1/x >=2

A picture is worth a thousand words, even in mathematics. Most of the time, complicated algebraic statements can be shown using geometric representations. One example is the sum of which when added equals 1. In this post, we show another geometric proof without words. Proof without words is not a proof per se but rather […]

Proof without Words: Odds and Squares

In the Mathematical Palette, my mathematics appreciation blog, I wrote about mathematics being a science of patterns. The images below only affirm the beauty of these patterns. they also show the intuitive proof of the statement, or what some people call proof without words. Do you think the number pattern will continue as the number […]

Mathematical Proofs Without Words: What are they?

In  Proof of the Sum of Square Numbers, I have mentioned about proof without words. Some of you are probably wondering what they are, so I will discuss in detail. Proof without words are diagrams or pictures that help readers see why a particular statement is true even without accompanying explanations.  One example is a […]
