Yeah, I totally missed that part. Damn. I thought it was A since the goal of the airline is a quick turnaround. Any rule or regulation that forces to add on time (i.e. "REQUIRE STOPS FOR REFUELING") is a bad thing. I understand direct flights are great but requiring stops for refueling seems to guar...

Is x·|y| > y2? (1) x > y (2) y > 0 OA: C Here's how I tried to rephrase. Step 1a) First, I lets say Y is positive.

My brain is not working...

x + 3 < n – 1

How do you turn the above equation into x+n<2n-4 ???

I did the following.
x-n < -4
-1(x-n) > (-4)-1
n-x > 4

Am I missing something extremely obvious? This seems too easy to get stumped on.
