Half of 2 is 1, so trivially, any number greater than 1 will be greater than 2 when multiplied by 2.
For which numbers, N, is N*2 greater than 2? On other words, for which numbers, N, is N*2>2?
Investigate this question as follows
A) Without using a calculator multiply 2 by the given numbers. show your work. In each case, determine whether the resulting product is greater than 2 or not.
2.85, 1.25, 0.95, 0.03, -0.7, -3.5
3 1/2, 1 1/8, 7/8, 2/5, -2/3, -2 3/4
B) Based on your answers in part (a) and on the meaning and rules of multiplication, describe the collection of all numbers, N, for which N*2 is greater than 2.
Thank you , I am sure its an easy problem to solve but my brain is fried cant figure this one out.
