Topic: Lean Tutorial

James Arthur (May 22 2020 at 17:22):

I am slightly confused on the Lean tutorial. I am at the following

import data.real.basic

example (a b : ) (ha : 0  a) (hb : 0  b) : 0  a + b :=

and can't seem to get anywhere.

Thanks, James

The tactic linarith will solve it, but if you want to find out the name of the function which will do it directly you can try library_search.

Kevin, this is fine when you're cheating in a speed-run against undergrads, but we're trying to teach something here.

Patrick Massot (May 22 2020 at 17:57):

James, you should try using le_add_of_nonneg_right

Kevin Buzzard (May 22 2020 at 18:02):

It was any%!
