Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2p and q are negative numbers whenever we have two negative numbers multiplied by each other (product we get a positive number) \[p \times q = pq \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[p+q = n \] whenever we have two negative numbers added to each other the result will always be a negative number. dw:1442776117459:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@Kitten_is_back there's more than one answer answer choice D they never told you whether d is negative or positive so how would you know? also for C why would you think that C may not be correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@Kitten_is_back see my explanation for A you can actually test this out yourself by plugging numbers in for p and q. say p is 2 and q is 1 if you add them 2+1 you'll get 3. D, how would you know the answer for this if they didn't tell you whether d is positive or negative. for C you are told that they are negative numbers but you don't know whether is more negative than Q let's test this out say if pq is negative right? let's say if p is 3 and q is  2 and then let's switch them in the second example \[3(2) = 1\] \[(2)(3) = \] what pattern do you see?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You can test these claims @Kitten_is_back by plugging in any whole numbers, integers, and seeing if the claim works

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It must work in every case, if it doesn't then the claim made is wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Question for you could you tell me whether this is true or not? by plugging in numbers for a and b \[a*b = ? \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2good, the best way to test these claims is to see whether or not you can make them false. clearly if I put in any negative integer for both this will always be positive hopefully this helped
