Multiple inequalities

  • #1

Homework Statement


I for some reason can't seem do become sure of this.
There are 2 variables x and y. And two constants, a and c, which are both positive.

Homework Equations


x+2y ≤ (3/4)*(a^2/c)
x + 2y < a

The Attempt at a Solution


Does this mean that: (3/4)*(a^2/c) < a ?

Do the inequalities ##A \leq 200## and ##A < 100## imply ##200 < 100?##

@monsmatglad, please check your Inbox. I explained why the inequality isn't necessarily true, based on the info you provided in your earlier thread.
