Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question asks you to write a 'compound inequality' to represent the graph. First of all, do you realize what is it shown on the graph?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@_ilovehim_ that's not right. The question wants us to express as a 'compound inequality' what is shown on the graph, which is the bold segment. e.g. number 1 is covered by the bold segment, whereas 2 is not. In general, the bold segment covers every number greater than or equal to 1 AND AT THE SAME TIME less than 3. How should you revise your answer ? (Hint: you are very close)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Ashtaroth the graph indicates the numbers covered by the bold segment. e.g. number 1 is covered by the bold segment, whereas 2 is not. In general, the bold segment covers every number greater than or equal to 1 AND AT THE SAME TIME less than 3. Now, we need a 'compound inequality' to express this. A 'compound inequality' contains at least two inequalities that are separated by either "and" or "or". How can you express the black segment as an inequality ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, what does the black bold dot on number 1 mean ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. The black bold segment covers every number from 1 up to 3, including 1 and excluding 3. That's the interpretation of the graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks. 1, 0, 1, 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. What you just answered is "the INTEGER numbers that are represented on the graph". However, the bold black segment covers many other numbers, such as 1.5 , 2.324 , 0.9995 etc Actually, we cannot list all these numbers because they are infinite, so we need to use an inequality to express them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let's do an intermediate problem. "x is a negative number. Write an inequality for this statement."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x is any number , an unknown Can you find the inequality for the intermediate problem ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01, 0 ,2? if it isn't that i'm freaking clueless.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, let's try this. Is it clear that "x is a negative number" and "x<0" have the same meaning?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. The graph shows us every number greater than or equal to 1 and less than 3. Is this also clear ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now try to express in symbols the following: a) "x is grater than or equal to 1" b) "x is less than 3" (Hint: just like the example "x is negative")
