(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

This problem asks you to compare two values and say whether one is greater, they are the same, or the problem does not give you enough information to answer the question. In this question they give you a symbol, in this case "+" and then define what it does to a number.

The problem states:

If N is a positive integger, than N+ denotes a number such that N<N+<N+1

Then it asks you to compare:

20+/4+

and

5+

The correct answer is "The relationship cannot be determined from the information given"

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no clue how to even start with this problem. I don't understand how to translate their meaning for "+" into an operation on those numbers.
