Aug. 27: There is some discrepancy between the two editions of the book concerning supplamental problem #3. The statement to be proved is the same, but the newer edition provides more detailed advice, linking it with problems 1 and 2 from that section. I recommend working from this version. Problem 1 just says that one is allowed to make recursive definitions of the type suggested in the problem. Problem 2 translates the statement into an easier one to prove.

The advice given in the first edition, linking it with problem 8(a) of section 1.10, may not be so helpful.
