Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0um, no, I don't get what you mean by all that..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok if we divide the equation by 1 what will we get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, my teacher said to change the < to a = when I solve these types of problems so i would get: 2m1 = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok 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 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, 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..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you 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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 is indeed smaller than 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, I know but the answers i got for m and every other number works too which shouldn't be happening

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it works for every m

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i don't get how that can work though...so the answer is that all numbers work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes it is obvious .. all the negative numbers are smaller than 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if 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 !!
