1. ## Quick Question

Please can anyone tell me what the following means with respect to 'k'?

0 < k < 1

I'm sure this is very simple. Many thanks

2. This means that k is greater than or equal to 0 and k is less than 1. If k is a real number, then there are many possible values for k, but if k is an integer, it has to be 0.

3. Another more compact way to say it is "k is between 0 and 1, possibly equal to 0"

If you're having trouble with the symbol, then an easy way to remember is that with the symbols "<" and ">", the symbol always points to the smaller number.

4. Many thanks everyone.
