Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04.2 since the jumps are considered as positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2exactly as shreenithaa said the distance is never negative

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it doesn't make sense to have the distance be say 20 miles

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so that is why `4.2 = 4.2`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the absolute value represents distance from 0 the absolute value result is never negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0maybe the "expression" is (there can be any but has to be less than the solution the problem above" 10.42/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(4.2) I4.2I I(4.2)I I(4.2)I These are my possible answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why do u need the one at the end and it has to have a variable in order for it to be an expression

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jim_thompson5910 got anything?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think i got something i searched up expression in google and this is what i got In mathematics, an expression (or mathematical expression) is a finite combination of symbols that is wellformed according to rules that depend on the context. Mathematical symbols can designate numbers (constants), variables, operations, functions, punctuation, grouping, and other aspects of logical syntax.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what we did so far is compute that I4.2I = 4.2 we can replace the entire `I4.2I` with `4.2` so `(I4.2I)` becomes `(4.2)` agreed?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would that be the answer?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no we're working to evaluate what number `(I4.2I)` is equal to. Don't worry about the final answer right now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Aren't we trying to find what is less?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or do you want to find what is equal first?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well the first step is to figure out what number `(I4.2I)` is equal to then we do the same with each answer choice once we get single numbers, we can do comparisons to see which is smaller

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So its equal to 4.21? or? sorry I really suck at math.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hopefully you agree that 4.2 = 4.2 and hopefully you see why `(I4.2I)` becomes `(4.2)`

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what would `(4.2)` turn into?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't it be 4.2? or 4.2? It can't be negative right?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the two negatives cancel to form a positive

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in the end, `(I4.2I)` boils down to the single number `4.2`

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But there's three negatives? do they all cancel out eachother?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for each of these answer choices below (4.2) I4.2I I(4.2)I I(4.2)I you'll do the same thing: simplify as much as possible after simplification, you compare

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but remember, I4.2I turned into +4.2 or just 4.2

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2which is why we got to (4.2)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I think the last one is the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2`So I think the last one is the answer.` why do you think that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For all the equations, you could simplify is pretty much to all the same thing. right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats why I though it was the answer. It ends up being less?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the problem boils down to this question: which number is less than 4.2? choice A) 4.2 choice B) 4.2 choice C) 4.2 choice D) 4.2

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes it's choice D. I just wanted to be sure you understand why it's D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Don't worry about sounding stupid. Most often, you have the right answer on the first try. So go with your gut
