There are two questions for you to attempt over the weekend.

Question 1 - To be done on a piece of writing paper. Question 2 - To be answered in Comments section. QUESTION 1
Investigate the following question and prove that they are similar / different.

Depends on what n is. If n is 1, then 5+n is bigger as the answer will be 6 and 5n will be 5. If n is 3, then 5+n is smaller as the answer is 8 and 5n will be 15.

It relies on what n is,as it can vary. Case 1:When n is equal to 1,then 5 + n is greater as 5 + 1 is greater than 5 x 1. Case 2:When n is equal to 2,then 5 x n is greater as 5 x 2 is greater than 5 + 2.

Not possible to tell If n=1 5+1=6(5+n) 5x1=1(5xn) In this case,(5+n) is greater than (5xn) If n=3 5+3=8(5+n) 5x3=15(5xn) In this case,(5+n) is smaller than (5xn) So it depends

If n is equal to 1, 5+n is larger than 5n.5+n would be equal to 6 and 5n would be equal to 5 so 5 + n is larger. If n is larger than 1, 5n would be larger than 5+n. e.g. 5x7 would be equal to 35 and 5+7 would be equal to 12 so 5n would be larger

1.(n)=1 : 5+n is bigger than 5n as 5+n will be 6 while 5n will be 5. 2.(n)=1.25 : 5+n is equal to 5n as both are 6.25. 3.(n)=2 : 5+n is smaller than 5n as 5+n will be 7 while 5n will be 10

It depends on the value of n is. (E.G.) If n = 0/1, 5+n= 5+0= 5 or 5+n=5+1=6 and 5n=5xn=5x1=5 or 5n=5xn=5x0=0 through this the 5+n will be bigger if n=bigger than 1.(E.G.) If n=3. 5+n=5+3=8 and 5n=5x3=15 through this the 5n will be bigger.

The answer really depends on the value of n. Here are two scenarios on what can happen SCENARIO 1:n = 1 5+1=6 5 multiply 1 = 5 so 5+n is bigger SCENARIO 2 n =2 5+2=7 5 multiply by 2 = 10 so 5n is bigger.

Depends on what n is.

ReplyDeleteIf n is 1, then 5+n is bigger as the answer will be 6 and 5n will be 5.

If n is 3, then 5+n is smaller as the answer is 8 and 5n will be 15.

It relies on what n is,as it can vary.

ReplyDeleteCase 1:When n is equal to 1,then 5 + n is greater as 5 + 1 is greater than 5 x 1.

Case 2:When n is equal to 2,then 5 x n is greater as 5 x 2 is greater than 5 + 2.

It depends.

ReplyDeleteIf n is 1, 5+1=6 and 5x1=5, therefore 5+n is bigger.

If n is 2, 5+2=7 and 5x2+10, therefore 5n is bigger.

It depends all on what n is.

ReplyDeleteIf n is 1, 5+n is larger as it now 6.

BUT if n is more than 1, 5n will be larger as it would be 5xn instead of 5+n

ReplyDeleteIt depends on what n is.

ReplyDeleteIf n is 1 then 5+n is bigger than 5n

If n is 5, then 5n is bigger than 5+n

good

DeleteIt depends on the value of n

ReplyDeleteExample 1: Let N be 0

5+0=5 5x0=0

If n is 1 or lesser , 5+n will be larger than 5n

_________________

Example 2 : Let n be 2

5+2=7 5x2=10

If n is greater than 1, 5n would be larger than 5+n

good

DeleteThe answer is not possible to tell.

ReplyDeleteIf n=0, 5 x 0 = 0 and 5 + 0 = 5

If n=3, 5 x 3 = 15 and 5 + 3 = 8

good

DeleteNot possible to tell

ReplyDeleteIf n=1

5+1=6(5+n)

5x1=1(5xn)

In this case,(5+n) is greater than (5xn)

If n=3

5+3=8(5+n)

5x3=15(5xn)

In this case,(5+n) is smaller than (5xn)

So it depends

If n is equal to 1, 5+n is larger than 5n.5+n would be equal to 6 and 5n would be equal to 5 so 5 + n is larger.

ReplyDeleteIf n is larger than 1, 5n would be larger than 5+n. e.g. 5x7 would be equal to 35 and 5+7 would be equal to 12 so 5n would be larger

There can be three answers:

ReplyDelete1.(n)=1 : 5+n is bigger than 5n as 5+n will be 6 while 5n will be 5.

2.(n)=1.25 : 5+n is equal to 5n as both are 6.25.

3.(n)=2 : 5+n is smaller than 5n as 5+n will be 7 while 5n will be 10

If n is 1:

ReplyDelete5 + n=6

5n=5 x 1=1

So 5+n is larger.

If n is 2

5n=5 x 2 =10

5+2=7

So 5n is larger

It really depends on what n is

ReplyDeleteIf n is 1, then 5+1=6 and 5x1=5

so 5+n will be bigger.

If n is 6, then 6+5=11 and 5x6=30

so 5n will be bigger

It depends on the value of n is. (E.G.)

ReplyDeleteIf n = 0/1,

5+n= 5+0= 5

or

5+n=5+1=6

and

5n=5xn=5x1=5

or

5n=5xn=5x0=0

through this the 5+n will be bigger if n=bigger than 1.(E.G.)

If n=3.

5+n=5+3=8

and

5n=5x3=15

through this the 5n will be bigger.

It really depends on the value of (n). Lets's say for example if (n) is 1 ,

ReplyDelete1)5+n=5+1

=6

2)5(1)

=5

so 5+(n) is bigger

The answer really depends on the value of n. Here are two scenarios on what can happen

ReplyDeleteSCENARIO 1:n = 1

5+1=6

5 multiply 1 = 5

so 5+n is bigger

SCENARIO 2

n =2

5+2=7

5 multiply by 2 = 10

so 5n is bigger.

Answer for question 2:

ReplyDeletescenario 1:(n=1)

5+n=6

5n=5 times n=5

scenario 2:(n=5)

5+n=10

5n= 5 times n=25

So, the answer to this question really depends on the value of n

It depends on what "n" equals to

ReplyDeleteCase #1

If '"n" = 1

5+1 =6

5 x 1 =5

Therefore 5+"n" is larger

Case 2

'n'=2

5+2=7

5(2)=10

Therefore 5n is larger

ReplyDeleteit depends on what n is.

ReplyDelete#1:(n is 1)

5+n=5+1=6 5n=5 x 1 +5

#2:(n is 3)

5+n=5+3=8 5n=5 x 3=15

It depends on the value of n.

ReplyDeleteExample 1 5n>5

-In this case 5n>n+5.

Example 2 5n<5

-In this case 5n<5+n

In this case, it really depends on what the value of "n" really is. There is two possible scenarios:

ReplyDelete#1: If "n" = 1

5+n = 5+1 = 6

5n = 5x1 = 5

In this case, 5+n is larger than 5n.

#2: If "n" = 5

5+n = 5+5 = 10

5n = 5x5 = 25

In this case, 5n is larger than 5+n.

If n is 1 or 0

ReplyDeletee.g

0 x 5=0

0+5=5

So n+5>5n

If n > 1

e.g.

2x5=10

5+2=7

So 5n > 5+n

It actually depends.

ReplyDelete#1 n=1

n+5=1+5

=6

5n=5*1

=5

In this case, n+5>5n

#2 n=2

n+5=2+5

=7

5n=5*2

=10

In this case, 5+n<5n
