(r.age)+1) {name="Pat",age=21,gpa=1} is not typable, since it applies a function that wants a two-field record to an argument that actually provides three fields, while the T_App rule demands that the domain type of the function being applied must match the type of the argument precisely. The same problem can be solved using bit manipulation. Consider a number x that we need to check for being a power for 2. Now think about the binary representation of (x-1). (x-1) will have all the bits same as x, except for the rightmost 1 in x and all the bits to the right of the rightmost 1. Let, x = 4 = (100) 2.

Alan Turing proved in 1936 that a general algorithm to solve the halting problem for all possible program-input pairs cannot exist. In number theory, the Chinese remainder theorem states that if one knows the remainders of the Euclidean division of an integer n by several integers, then one can determine uniquely the remainder of the division of n by the product of these integers, under the condition that the divisors are pairwise coprime.

Proof: Assume BWOC false, and suppose H is the smallest counterexample (for q). Pick g 2H f egand form H=hgi. No elt of H has order a multiple of q, so gcd(o(g);q) = 1. But jHj= o(g)jH=hgij, so qjjH=hgij. Because H was the smallest counterexample, H=hgihas an element hhgiof order q.
