Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0State whether any conclusions can be made using the true statement, given that x = 3. 26) If x > 2x  10, then x = y. 28) If 4x is greater than or equal to 12, then y = 6x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So 1st plug in 3 wherever there is an x: (3) > 2(3) 10 then 3 = y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03 > 4, but I'm not understanding how to find y in either of these statements.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.13 > 6  10 Is what you should get. And you know this is true right? Any questions so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay so you found 3 > 4 and that is true. Because that is true you know y = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So y is just the other side of the arrow?

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well it is x = y. So you substitute in the 3 for x. So 3 = y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because it is saying if this first part is true, and it is, this next part must be true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What I put as my answer on my paper is this: True; 3 > 2(3) 10, 3 > 6  10, 3 > 4. y = 3. Would this be all I need to do and that's my answer for 26?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You solve the next one in pretty much the exact same way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But where does 6x come from?

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So it is saying if the first part is true after you substitute in for x, the next part will be also so in that case y = 6(3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if 4x (12) was replaced with 6x (18), it would be true, the same thing?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When you substitute in for x: If 4(3) is greater than or equal to 12, then y = 6(3)

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That means 4 x 3 and 6 x 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So from what I'm understanding... 4(3) is greater than or equal to 12. 6(3) is greater than or equal to 12. So true. I'm sorry if I sound stupid, but I've been told so many different things this past week and today I don't know how to do any of this. /:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not exactly. You it is saying if the first one is true then the next one is also.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You know that 4 * 3 equals 12. So then you know y = 2 * (3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But if 6x doesn't come before 12 then I don't see what it has to do with the problem lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're figuring out the if the first part is true.

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If it is true then you can use that to solve the second part and find what y equals. If it were false you wouldn't be able to draw any conclusions from it.

kmullis6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea, that's true because it's equal to it. But what I'm getting confused on is where y comes to play in the problem.

unimatix
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It says y = x * 6. You know what x is. So I'm not exactly sure what the confusion is.

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can find the number y is equal to. It is just a symbol for a number just like x is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer's 18, so would it be 18 is greater than or equal to 12?

unimatix
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The answer is y = 18.

unimatix
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're overthinking this. It literally just means that y = 18.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh. I'm sorry for dragging that simple thing out for so long. When it comes to math, I always overthink things. I was told something different earlier and going off of that, and also what my teacher's said, so I've got confused. Thank you so much for your help.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yep. You do understand that if the first part were false, you wouldn't be able to draw any conclusions at all right?

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Like if it had said x =3 If x < 2 then y = 50

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You wouldn't be able to draw any conclusions from that because 3 is not less than 2.

unimatix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Both of your problems were true so you were able to find what y was equal to.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea, that I get. I looked at some other problems as well that were false in my book to see how they were solved
