## Re: Value of x•y

If you truly don't get this, then you have not gotten anything in this whole set of questions.

You need to hire a private tutor, someone who can take the time to sit down with you.

I see on other way to address your profound lack of mathematical understanding.

Now it may simply be you unwillingness to exert any effort. But in any case, I see no way we can help you.

## Re: Value of x•y

If 0 <= x <= 4 and y < 12...

I understand that xy CANNOT be 48 because that requires either 6 * 8, and both numbers exceed the permissible x interval; or 4 * 12, which in the best case scenario, is no good because this means 12 < 12, a false statement, although 4 <= 4 is true. So, my answer is E. Correct?
