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:
On the coordinate plane is the point(0,0) closer to the point (u,v) then to the point (u,v+1)?
1.u+ v2(read as v square)= -1 2.v<0
Only Explanations and approach please .I know the answer.
I got B, what's the OA?
If you look closely at the question, origin of the coordinate plane can only be closer to (u,v) than (u,v+1) when v is positive. So if we find out about the sign of v, we can determine if (u,v+1) is closer or not.
(1) u + v^2 = -1. In this case, we know u is positive, but nothing about v. INSUFFICIENT.
(2) Knowing that v<0 answers the question. In this case, (u,v+1) is actually closer to the origin than (u,v). SUFFICIENT.
We dont need to know a lot to answer this question. first thing is to look at a graph. We kow that it is going to be a straight line, and that a line is the shortest distance between two points.
Now if we look at a graph, and set V to O...and look at a line for any value of x. If 1 is added to Y we see that the line gets longer (becomes the hypotenuse of the triangle formed in the two lines) however if one is taken away from y the opposite is true, so we need to figure out which direction Y is heading, toward the X axis or away from the x axis.
If x heads toward the x axis it will get shorter if it moves away from the x axis it will get longer...
If V is less than -1/2 the line will always get shorter..V>-1/2 the line will get longer.
I Insufficient, it only tells us that X is negative
II turns out to be also insufficient since 0>V>-1/2 is also possible.
together is also insufficient since 0>v>-1. For instance V = -1/2 and U=-5/4
I thought B at first too, but then i realized that v can be between -1/2 and 0. in this case, (u,v) is closer to the origin than (u,v+1) is.
S1+S2 only tells us that u is negative, but we can still have the same situation. if v is very small, ie -10, then (u,v+1) is closer to the origin than (u,v). but just like before, if v is between 0 and -1/2, then (u,v) will be closer than (u,v+1).
