Ok, just did it for all of em and got the right answer (D)!
Although I see that picking small numbers and plugging would be a better strategy on test day, but wanted to understand the notation first :P
Thanks so much for your help!
Ah, I think I get it.
So to evaluate choice (A), I would do the following(?):
f(x) = 1 - x <-- set up provided by (A)
f(1 - x) = 1 - (1 - x) <--- plugging in (1-x) for x
f(1 - x) = x <--- restating
So now I have the two following statements:
f(x) = 1 - x
f(1 - x) = x
This is a problem from my GMAT practice exam that gives me the right answer but not an explanation as to why. The question is formatted as a data sufficiency question, which means that it asks you whether a pair of statements would be individually and / or together sufficient to answer the...
OK, so I'm taking this GMAT practice test online, and I got stuck on this question. The software tells me the correct answer, but not the explanation. What I'm really stuck on is the wording of the question - it's been 10 years since my last calculus class, and even though it's an algebra...
So JoeDawg, according to you, a free market fails because people sometimes can't afford stuff?
There has to be a way to allocate limited resources to unlimited wants. There's no "fair" method, any method will favor one group of people to another. Like I said, name a "fair" method that...
Because it is the only definition that can fit the impliciations of the words being used, as well as what people perceive it to mean.
Otherwise, you can say that the computer I'm sitting at right now has free will.
The ability to manage money is only one of the requirements of becoming wealth. Earning is important too. Incomes are correlated to IQs, as much as you'd like to say otherwise.
Plz stop saying opinions that are completely irrelavant. You're losing...
Plane on a treadmill
I read this puzzle recently,
There is a plane on an endless treadmill. The thing about this treadmill is that however fast the plane is moving forward, the treadmill goes the same speed backwards.
Would a plane be able to take off of this treadmill?
I would say this is nothing like the OP case. When these bombs were designed, they weren't thinking "Oh what if children come around later and play with these things because they were colorful?" Children can play w/ whatever they want, colorful or not. The color is meant as a safety device...
I didn't use acid because it won't travel sideways to make a "cut" and I'm too lazy to turn the cube after every "cut" :P
And I was thinking of a "cut" as the action of the motion of the knife, not the resulting change in shape.
I look at it this way: If that person had not done what they did, would the world be different than it is now?
If Einstein hadn't discovered SR and GR, would the world be different? Yes; Therefore, he made a difference.
Now, yes, in order to change the world, you have to have a world...
The act or habit of arrogating, or making undue claims in an overbearing manner; that species of pride which consists in exorbitant claims of rank, dignity, estimation, or power, or which exalts the worth or importance of the person to an undue degree; proud contempt...
Your sample size of intelligent people that can't balance their checkbook is intriguiging, but irrelavant. There is a correlation between income and IQ in a capitalistic society. More intelligent people have an easier time attaining higher education, getting better jobs, moving up, etc... Do...
I think both rules are bogus.
If you treat others as you wish to be treated, you might do something that they don't wish. Not everyone wishes to be treated the same way, and the absolutist thinking that everyone wishes to be treated as you do is arrogant.
Consider this: Set up any simple game that does not favor one group of people over another?
No matter what you do, there will be some factors that help in winning the game, whether it requires intelligence, physical strength, creativity, etc... "Fairness" is not in the result, but in the...
I disagree that your first point logically leads to the second one.
I also disagree with the first point entirely. I think the market was set up to be an efficient economic system, and coincidentally favors some people (more intelligent people) because they are often able to take advantage...
JoeDawg, no one ever claimed that free markets were truly "free", its just a term. They're free in terms of allowing a large degree of freedom, not in being anarchy.
The way I see it, the world has limited resources, and they have to be divided among people in some way. In my opinion...
In order for free will and determinism to co-exist, you have to change the defintion of free will, which is exactly what compatibilism does.
But if you except determinism, then truly free will can not exist, only the appearance of one.
