Q:
# If z is a positive integer, does 4 + 3(2z-5) represent a number that is greater than,less than ,or equal to 2(3z-4)? Please show me how you got the answer.

Accepted Solution

A:

4 + 3( 2(4) - 5)

= 4 + 24-5

= 28-5

= 23

2(3(4) -4)

= 2(12) -4

= 24 -4 = 20

4+3(2z-5) > 2(3z-4)

= 4 + 24-5

= 28-5

= 23

2(3(4) -4)

= 2(12) -4

= 24 -4 = 20

4+3(2z-5) > 2(3z-4)
