I'm learning set theory independently at the moment and using a book that doesn't have a solutions manual. Under these conditions, is it okay if I make a thread asking if my solution is correct?

    $\begingroup$ Under these circumstances, tagging as homework even seems superfluous. Using solution-verification may be warranted, though. But I see no harm in such posts. $\endgroup$ – Lord_Farin Dec 24 '14 at 20:15

  • $\begingroup$ @JyrkiLahtonen Woah, that's a big change I've missed. Thanks for pointing it out :). Also, thanks for the welcome; much appreciated :). $\endgroup$ – Lord_Farin Dec 24 '14 at 20:24
  • $\begingroup$ Do none of these answer your question?! Asking homework questions might be okay, asking questions that have already been asked dozens of times is not. $\endgroup$ – Najib Idrissi Dec 25 '14 at 9:20

Yes, as long as you show your work and make sure the question hasn't been asked before!

That is, surf the "set-theory" tag a while, and maybe you'll find answers to your questions. Also, exploit the search button.
