at least we have one fewer option than those nagging

00:22

abc The multiple choice problems Look on the bright side

00:24

right Okay so we're told that x equals a half

00:27

which means we can simply plug that value into the

00:29

equation or inequality or whatever it is We're not sure

00:32

yet to get our answers so we're going to start

00:34

plugging Well one over x squared becomes one over one

00:38

half square All right so what's one half square What

00:42

does that mean Well we keep the numerator this same

00:44

and multiply denominators and well here So we get one

00:48

half times one half equals one fourth Well we've got

00:52

one over a quarter meaning we take the reciprocal in

00:56

this whole thing gets flipped and becomes four just like

00:59

that Our final term is one over x and what's

01:01

one over a half Well again all we do is

01:04

flip it to get the reciprocal and it becomes too

01:07

well Now we have a really easy looking problem on

01:09

our hands is for greater than to less than two

01:12

or equal to to hold on Give us a second

01:14

We're gonna go with greater than we're wrong Then we 00:01:17.518 --> [endTime] might just hear that wait
