Solutions

Chapter 1.1, Problem 69E

(a)

To determine

To evaluate: the expression |(2)6| .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 69E

  |(2)6|=12

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as |(2)6| .

Formula used:

Absolute value property:

For any real number a,

  |a|=a0|a|=|a|=a

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

  |(2)6|

Now, evaluate the expression:

  |(2)6|=|12| [(a)b=ab]=|12| [|a|=|a|=a]=12

Hence, |(2)6|=12

(b)

To determine

To evaluate: the expression |(13)(15)| .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 69E

  |(13)(15)|=5

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

An expression is given as |(13)(15)| .

Formula used:

Absolute value property:

For any real number a,

  |a|=a0|a|=|a|=a

Calculation:

Consider the given expression.

Now, evaluate the expression:

  |(13)(15)|=|1315| [(a)(b)=ab]=|5| [|a|=|a|=a]=5

Hence, |(13)(15)|=5 .
