Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So.. let's say "d" is the number... We want to know what this expression could mean: d/2  5 You want to note that d/2 ALSO can be written as 1/2 * d we said d = number.. therefore 1/2 *d  5 would mean...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you're closeee but not quite there :) When we say: half a number LESS than 5.. this would mean: 5  1/2d (where "d" is the number") We want it the other way around right? 1/2d  5 So this would mean 5 less than half a number
