andrea408 2 years ago HELP! what does this symbol ( μ ) mean in geometry? a) greater than ? b)lesser than? c) equal to or greater than? d)not equal to ?

1. zordoloom

It means micrometer or micron.

2. zordoloom

It's denoted as 10^-6. Its a very small measurement.

3. andrea408

a) greater than ? b)lesser than? c) equal to or greater than? d)not equal to ?

4. andrea408

those are my options

5. zordoloom

6. andrea408

there is grapes on one side and a banana on the other and the symbol in the middle

7. andrea408

thats it .. ?

8. zordoloom

Huh, are you sure that specific symbol was in between?

9. zordoloom

It might help if you wrote out the exact question.

10. andrea408

what is the meaning of μ ?

11. zordoloom

μ is a measurement of something.

12. andrea408

is not greater than ? or lesser than ? anything ?

13. andrea408

i want to show you the picture

14. andrea408

a) greater than ? b)lesser than? c) equal to or greater than? d)not equal to ?

15. beehive

andrea408 take a picture and post it here, that would give a better answer to zordolooms question

16. UnkleRhaukus

x>y x is greater than y x<y x is less than y x≥y x is greater than or equal to y x≠y x is not equal to y

17. andrea408

so what does this symbol mean ? μ

18. andrea408

a) greater than b)lesser than c) equal to or greater than d)not equal to

19. Dido525

None of them. μ means microns or the coefficient of friction.

20. andrea408

thats weird because its not one of my options

21. andrea408

the picture shows a bunch on grapes on one side of the symbol and a banana on the other side

22. beehive

grapes greater than the banana G>B

23. Dido525

Could you take a picture and post it here? Or draw it out?

24. andrea408

the grapes are larger then the banana so im guessing that its greater then ?

25. beehive

That is the only thing that makes sense here.

26. beehive

yes

27. UnkleRhaukus

mu ( µ ) is not a standard geometry symbol

28. andrea408

well lets see if its right

29. andrea408

no it wasnt right :(

30. beehive

sorry then, it's hard to see a picture you are trying to describe. It's like i've not met that problem before.

31. UnkleRhaukus

ive never seen grapes that are larger then a banana

32. andrea408

well thanks guys :D

33. Dido525
