find two positive numbers whose product is a maximum. 1.) the sum is s.
It is a positive.
Find the product of their absolute values (without regard for their signs) and then label the product positive. The process is exactly the same if both numbers are negative.
"The sum of a number and three times another number is 18. find the numbers if their product is a maximum?"
Multiply them. The answer will be negative.
A product is the answer when you multiply numbers or terms together. The product of two positive numbers is positive. ie. 2x2=4. The product of two negative numbers is positive. ie -(2)x(-2)=4 The product of a negative number and positive number is a negative number. ie. (-2)x 2=-4 In general, multiply the numbers as you normally would, and if the signs are different. the product is negative. If the signs are all the same, the product is positive. Remember that if a negative number is outside brackets, the question might be approached a bit differently.
The numbers are 8 and 9.
you are a nerd
never less than n
The product of 2 consecutive positive number is 48. Find the 2 numbers
put the positive in front of the negative and just subrtact like to positive numbers. ex. x+(-y)= x-y
The problem is complete. There is enough information there for it to be solved.
