what does \(\le\) mean?

I'll start you off. π = π ; true or false? π < π ; true or false? π ≤ π ; true or false? @ikeobi

ok

OK, so is \(\pi\) either: less then \(\pi\)..................... or ..............equal to \(\pi\)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not sure
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
You aren't sure if \(\pi\) meets either one of those conditions? \(\pi\) is just a real number.

  • anonymous
ok
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
ok.... what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
if \[\pi \le \pi \] this means \[\pi < \pi \] or \[\pi=\pi\] so is the statement true or false
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
\(\pi\) is a real number, for our purposes here it isn't really any different than, say, the number 7. So is it true that EITHER.... 7<7 ? OR that 7=7 ? Is at least one of those true??
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
E.g., if I said: TRUE or FALSE: \(7\le7\) how would you answer that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
7=7 is true but 7 cannot be less than 7
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
It is the same for: TRUE or FALSE: \(\pi \le \pi\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
that is true but that's where the less than or equal to comes into play
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
Right, but \(\le\) doesn't mean "less than AND equal to" it means "less than OR equal to"
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
You said so yourself, up above!! :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
it can be either one, if it satisfies either condition then it is true by the condition
DebbieG
  • DebbieG
So: \(7\le7\) is true because 7=7 \(2\le7\) is true because 2<7
