Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 66E

(a)

To determine

To evaluate: the expression |55| .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 66E

  |55|=2.7640

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as |55| .

Formula used:

Absolute value property:

For any real number a,

  |a|=a0|a|=|a|=a

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  |55|

Value of 5 is 2.2360.

Substitute the value in |55| .

  |55|=|2.23605|=|2.7640|

Now, compare the expression with |a| :

  |a|=|2.7640|a=2.7640

Now, by absolute value property:

  |a|=|a|=a

Therefore, |2.7640|=2.7640

Hence, |55|=2.7640

(b)

To determine

To evaluate: the expression |10π| .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 66E

  |10π|=6.8571

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as |10π| .

Formula used:

Absolute value property:

For any real number a,

  |a|=a0|a|=|a|=a

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

Value of π is 3.1428.

Substitute the value in |10π| .

  |10π|=|103.1428|=|6.8571|

Now, compare the expression with |a| :

  |a|=|6.8571|a=6.8571

Now, by absolute value property:

  |a|=a0

Therefore, |6.8571|=6.8571

Hence, |10π|=6.8571 .
