false: counterexample: x=5^-2 so we 5/(5^-2)=5(5)^2=125>5
i am in the 7th grade i don't understand your repy, plz help
do you know law of exponents?
ok what happens of x=0.1 what is 5/x=____
what is 5/(0.1)=____
what is 5 divided by 0.1?
5/(0.1) you could multiply the top and bottom by 10 and if you did what is this fraction equivalent to____
what is 5*10=____
what is 0.1*10=___
no 0.1*10=1 0.01*10=0.1 0.001*10=0.01 what is 0.0001*10=____
is that divided?
* means multiply
ok so the answer would be no because it can be broken down in a simpler form
i don't know what you are talking about, but the question is 5/x always less than 5 is false. A counterexample would be for x=0.1 since 5/(0.1)=5/(0.1)*(10/10)=50/1=50 and 50>5
there are many different counterexamples
but you only need one
ok so it can be many other examples
there are some examples that will show this is true( so the always part is false since there are also examples showing that the statement is false)
thank you is math your favorite subject?
ok great thank you, i have tons of other questions to finish
ok have fun
