(x4 − x5 ), α α1 = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)k 1 = a − b(x1 − x2 ) . . (x4 − x5 ). α These last equations show that the cube or fifth power (according as a1 is 3 or 5) of the product of (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)i and (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)k is symmetric, and consequently, by what was lately proved, that this product itself is symmetric; so that we may write f1 .
X5 . With these suppositions, the function f1 must, by the principles of a former article, have exactly α1 values, corresponding to changes of arrangement of the five arbitrary quantities x1 , . . x5 ; the exponent α1 must therefore be a prime divisor of the product 120 (= 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5); that is, it must be 2, or 3, or 5. ; and it would always be possible to find symmetric multipliers c1 , c2 , c3 , c4 , which would not all be equal to 0, and would be such that (2) (3) (4) (2) (3) (4) (2) (3) (4) c1 b2 + c2 b2 + c3 b2 + c4 b2 = 0, c1 b3 + c2 b3 + c3 b3 + c4 b3 = 0, c1 b4 + c2 b4 + c3 b4 + c4 b4 = 0; in this manner then we should obtain an equation of the form (2) (3) (4) (2) (3) (4) c1 a1 + c2 a12 + c3 a13 + c4 a14 = c1 b0 + c2 b0 + c3 b0 + c4 b0 + (c1 b1 + c2 b1 + c3 b1 + c4 b1 )xα , in which it is impossible that the coefficient of xα should vanish, because the five unequal values of a1 could not all satisfy one common equation, of the fourth or of a lower degree; we should therefore have an expression for xα of the form xα = d0 + d1 a1 + d2 a12 + d3 a13 + d4 a14 , the coefficients d0 , .
