Verified questions
ADVANCED MATH
Identify the fallacies of relevance committed by the following arguments, giving a brief explanation for your answer. If no fallacy is committed, write “no fallacy.” Animal rights activists say that animals are abused in biomedical research labs. But consider this: Pets are abused by their owners every day. Probably 25 percent of pet owners should never get near animals. Some cases of abuse are enough to make you sick.
ADVANCED MATH
Determine which of the following passages are arguments. For those that are, identify the conclusion. For those that are not, determine the kind of nonargument. If a man holding a belief which he was taught in childhood or persuaded of afterwards keeps down and pushes away any doubts which arise about it in his mind, purposely avoids the reading of books and the company of men that call in question or discuss it, and regards as impious those questions which cannot easily be asked without disturbing it—the life of that man is one long sin against mankind.

If $\operatorname{gcd}(a, 30)=1,$ show that 60 divides $a^{4}+59$.
ADVANCED MATH
Suppose we use RSA encryption with the same key to encrypt plaintext messages $P_1$ and $P_2$, and their product $P = P_1 P_2$. Show that the ciphertext obtained when P is encrypted equals the product of the ciphertexts $C_1$ and $C_2$, produced when $P_1$ and $P_2$ are encrypted, respectively, reduced modulo n, where n is the encryption modulus.
