can you do it now ?

um, no, I don't get what you mean by all that..

ok if we divide the equation by 1 what will we get ?

well, my teacher said to change the < to a = when I solve these types of problems so i would get: 2m1 = 2

ok if you want to do it this way you dont have to divide.. but if you done it already now you know to find m's that satisfy 2m1 = 2 ?

well, to get rid of the absolute values first, I just seperated it into 2m 1 = 2 and 2m 1 = 2 like my teacher told me to and I got the answers 1/2 and 3/2 but when I tried to check it, it doesn't seem right..

you have to plug now some m<1/2 like m = 1 1/2 < m < 3/2 lke m = 1 and m>3/2 like m = 2 in the original equation and see if it holds

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
when does it hold?

are you there?

yeah sorry, I tried numbers but it didn't work...

can someone else tell me how to solve this or if I'm doing something wrong?

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
why? when you plug m=1 what do you get?

i get 4 <2
 one year ago

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so it holds isnt it?

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
4 is indeed smaller than 2

yes, I know but the answers i got for m and every other number works too which shouldn't be happening
 one year ago

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it works for every m
 one year ago

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is obvious.. the original question is negative number < 2 so it always holds i wanted to work on the technique with you
 one year ago

xRAWRRx3 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i don't get how that can work though...so the answer is that all numbers work?
 one year ago

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes it is obvious .. all the negative numbers are smaller than 2
 one year ago

Coolsector Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
if you didnt see it at the original question you could see it when you asked yourself 2m1 = 2 ? it is never happens .. since left hand side of the equation is always positive !!
