Is 3 to the power of P > 2 to the power of q ?
(1) q = 2p
(2) q > 0
Can anyone explain this.
From my understanding the answer to this question is E.
But the explainantion says the correct ans is C.
from now on, you should actually say
what "your understanding of the problem" is
; it's hard to respond to your post if we have to mind-read.
kyle's approach (testing cases) works.
if you have statement 2, you can also substitute q = 2p into the question:
Is 3^p > 2^q ?
Is 3^p > 2^(2p) ?
which is the same as...
Is 3^p > (2^2)^p ?
Is 3^p > 4^p ?
The answer to this question is No if p is non-negative and Yes if p is negative. therefore, if you have the two statements together, it's a definite No.
