Yes for 2 i got 6) so L=1 and not a clue how to do 4
Just by looking at Q4 I'd say I would test a base case of before evaluating what happens as as see if the inequality still holds, examining closely the denominators if two things tend to the same thing. Just a thought though.
2. For problem 4 i got my ansdwer as (a) is correct
3. (Original post by betapro)
Found values for which absolute values vanish and split into three intervals and then tested each one
I got a different result when x is less than -1/2.

What was wrong with (e)?

For e i agree with first step but i dont get how u get that to 1

Could you send screenshot of working to see where i went wrong? ty <3

You can always use a little cheeky algebra

For , both , so LHS is ...
Unless I've done something really dumb somewhere...

Right yea ur right so if you would say that the answer is 6?

Can u show me this hidden magic of algebra xD

I'll let you decide on that one...

Well for most right interval u get -2 less than equal to 2 so u take that to be right, and from previous working we know that -infinity to -0.5 is right and also the interval between -0.5 and half is also right then yes? A confirmation would be great

consider ...
or simply multiply by the denominator...

15. Graph doesnt break or anything so i see why its -infitinty to positive infinity thanks. Still requiring some further assistance with that question 4 with the getting to one situation xD

is clearly less than 1, so ...

Yea see what u mean but surely it could never be 1, or is that just the notation you are meant to use?

means less than or equal to.
It is true if or or both.

so if then
