## Proof by Majority

Mathematicians at Warwick University have recently made a dramatic breakthrough in the area of proof. With their new system of "proof by majority" it is no longer necessary to write long technical proofs, but to instead have a simple group discussion. With each member's opinion having equal weight it takes only moments to discover what seems the right thing in any given mathematical situation.

For example: Is G cyclic?

Tim: I reckon it could be.

Mark: Nah!

Greg: I agree with Mark.

Tim: Alright then, proof by majority.
