Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So all you do it substituent for x 2(2)^24(2)+1>2(2) 2^2/4 and solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your equation then becomes 2(2)^2  4(2) + 1 > 2(2)  [(2)^2]/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep. And then when you solve if the number on the left isnt greater than the number on the right. It is false. If it is greater. It is true.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just treat the > as an = sign. It has no importance until the end when discerning if the answer is true or false.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The awnser is False, I know that. The study guide says it. I just do not know how to simplify it all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im not sure where you are getting stuck. The first step is to just simplify everything on the left side. Then the second step is to simplify everything on the right side. Then you compare the two numbers to see if the inequality makes sense. You have 2(2)^24(2)+1 > 2(2) 2^2/4 So to simplify the left side first. You can simplify 2(2)^2. First simplify (2)^2 to get 4. And then multiply that by 2. To get 8. Your equation now looks like 8  4(2) + 1 > 2(2)  (2^2)/4 The next thing you can do is simplify the 4(2) to 8. So now your inequality looks like 8  8 + 1 > 2(2)  (2^2)/4 0 + 1 > 4  (2^2)/4 1 > 4  (4/4) 1 > 4  1 1 > 3 This says 1 is greater than 3, which is false. So the answer is false like you said.
