Define x?y to be |x - y| for all real numbers x and y. Which of the following statements is not true?


(A) x?y = y?x for all x and y

(B) 2(x?y) = (2x)?(2y) for all x and y

(C) x?0 = x for all x

(D) x?x = 0 for all x

(E) x?y > 0 if \(x \neq y\)


for x?0 = x for all x
0>x
not sufficient
IMO C

Yes if X = -2 then x?y
|-2-0|=2 which is \(\neq\) -2
Hence C is not true .
