"What is Discrete Mathematics?" Review Assignment

*1.*Why is defining discrete mathematics challenging?*2.*Define discrete.*3.*Is the following set of numbers discrete: \([0,\infty)\)

Why or why not?*4.*Investigate: The most popular mathematician in the world is throwing a party for all of his friends. As a way to kick things off, they decide that everyone should shake hands. Assuming all 10 people at the party each shake hands with every other person (but not themselves, obviously) exactly once, how many handshakes take place?*5.*Consider the function which gives the number of kids that every person in the world has. Is this a discrete mathematics problem? Why or why not?
