What's the problem?

2. anonymous

t>1 Which is greater $\frac{ 1 }{ (1+\frac{ 3 }{ 2^{t} }) }$ or $\frac{ 1 }{ (1+\frac{ 3 }{ 3^{t} }) }$

3. skullpatrol

Graph them and find out :-)

4. skullpatrol

Replace t with 2 and simplify.

5. anonymous

6. anonymous

7. skullpatrol

Correct :-)

8. anonymous

9. skullpatrol

Substitute 2 for t and prove it for them.
