Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
X+Y>0 Therefore, X>-Y. Thus, it is unclear if Y is a positive number or a negative number. If Y is a positive number, Then X could be positive or negative. However, if Y is negative then X MUST be positive - given the assumption X>-Y. Number 2 tells us that Y is a negative number. Thus X>-(-Y) = X>|Y|. This is a "Yes/No" question - number 2 allows to answer a definitive "Yes"!
Statement 2 tells us that y is negative. The statement in the original problem tells us x + y > 0. So if y is negative, according to Stmnt2, then for [x + y > 0] be true x has to be a little more than absolute value of y. And that answers question.
