Introduction to the indirect proof: “Proof of the Irrationality of the Square Root of 2 Top 10 • Top 10 (EN)

Mathematical proofs are used to prove the cor­rect­ness of formulas and assumed facts. Sev­er­al basic procedures and ways of veri­fy­ing mathematical correctness are in use, all of which follow a fixed scheme.

For the proof of the irrationality of the square root of 2 dif­fer­ent proofs exist. This article explains the indirect proof vari­ant in detail and introduces one of the possible short spell­ings in mathematical notation. Exercises with solutions con­soli­date what has been learned. 12 pages::
