0 < 1  c/d < 1 => 0<c/d<1
with d>0
we get: c>0 and c/d<1
not true for c^2 + d^2 > 1
example: c=0.1 d=0.2
C

If \(d >0\) and \(0 < 1  \frac{c}{d} < 1\), which of the following must be true?I. \(c > 0\) II. \(\frac{c}{d} < 1\) III. \(c^2 + d^2 > 1\) A. I only B. II only C. I and II only D. II and III only E. I, II, and III[/quote] \(0<1\frac{c}{d}<1\) > add \(1\) to all three parts of this inequality > \(1<\frac{c}{d}<0\) > mutliply by \(1\) and as multiplying by negative flip signs > \(1>\frac{c}{d}>0\). So we have that: \(1>\frac{c}{d}>0\) I. \(c>0\) > as \(\frac{c}{d}>0\) and \(d>0\), then \(c>0\). Always true. II. \(\frac{c}{d}<1\) > directly given as true. III. \(c^2 + d^2 > 1\) > if \(c=1\) and \(d=2\), then YES, but if \(c=0.1\) and \(d=0.2\), then No, hences this one is not always true. Answer: C (I and II only). Hope it's clear.

Inequalities !! is it possible to get some tips and tools to solve these "sign" (< = > ) questions?

0 < 1  c/d < 1
Multiply by d, 0 < d  c < d
Implies that c>0
Now, d  c > 0 implies that d>c and hence c/d < 1
information we now have is c>0, d>0 and d>c
c^2 + d^2 > 0 but it may or may not be greater than 1.
Hence I & II only.

\(0<1\frac{c}{d}<1\)
First Part: \(0<1\frac{c}{d}\) \(\frac{c}{d}<1\) This satisfies Choice II
Second Part: \(1\frac{c}{d}<1\) \(0<\frac{c}{d}\) This satisfies Choice I as \(d>0\)
As for Choice III, if c and d are decimals then this gives us "False" but if they are integers, then "True"

Hey Guys
May I raise a small question regarding the third statement? If it would be INSTEAD of c^2 + d^2 > 1 be c^2 + d^2 > 0 , would the third statement be considered sufficient? My thinking is as follows:
1. as we know (out of proven first statement) that c>0: multiply the IE with itself leads to: c^2 >0 2. as we know (out of the question stem) that d>0: multiply the IE with itself leads to: d^2 >0 3. Combining the two IE from above by adding them up: c^2 + d^2 >0 4. The MODIFIED Statement 3 is considered sufficient
Would highly appreciate your inputs on my thought...
Cheers, Rene

Bunuel I have just one confusion here, 1> c/d > 0, however st 2 says c/d <1, doesnt the statement also include the cases where c/d<0, where the inequality wont hold so it isnt a MUST BE TRUE statement. Thanks in advance

Thanks in advance We got that \(0 < \frac{c}{d} < 1\). So, the answer to the question whether \(\frac{c}{d} < 1\) is true, is YES. How else? I think what he meant was a different thing. He assumes that c/d can also be negative. This is not possible, because c has to be bigger than 0 and d is positive (given). Therefore c/d has to be smaller than 1 (and is NEVER negative). Hope this helps people who struggeld with this part (like I did )
