ReplyDelete5n

ReplyDeleteor 5+n

Delete5n is 5 times n

5+n is 5 plus n

However if n is 1, 5+n is larger.

DeleteSo the ans is both

5n is larger than 5 + n

Deletesorry what i meant to say its not 5 to the power i meant times. sorry i got mixed up

Deleteexample if n is 2, 5+2=7 but if it is 5 x 2 it is = to 10

Deletebut there is some exception if n is 1, it would be like 5+1= 6 and 5 x 1= 5 it may not be always larger

ReplyDelete5n is 5 times n while 5+n is lesser since it is just addend n to the 5 while 5n have n times 5

DeleteExamples are like 2+5=7 while 2 times 5 equals 10

DeleteIn most cases it is 5n however if n is a 1 than 5+n is bigger as 5+1=6 while 1 times 5 equals 5

Deleteso it can be both answer 5n or 5+n

ReplyDelete5n is larger than 5+n

ReplyDelete5n = 5 x n

5n because 5 + n is 5 + 1n while 5n is 5 x n

ReplyDelete5n is larger

ReplyDelete5n=5Xn

5=n<5Xn

5n

ReplyDeletefor example: n=4

5+4 =9

5X2=20

p.s. 5n is bigger

Delete5n. Because 5n is 5×n, while the other is 5+n.

ReplyDeleteThe answer may vary

DeleteExample:

DeleteIf n=0, 5n would be 5×0 which equals to 0, and 5+n=5+0, which equals to 5.

ReplyDeletedepends on wad n is :D

ReplyDeleteif n is 0 then 5+n (6) is greater than 5xn (5)

Deleteif n is 10 then 5xn (50) is greater than 5+n(15)

ReplyDelete5n is larger as in algebra, x and / should not be seen in expressions or equations.

Lets say that n=10,so 5n means 5 x n=5x10=50

n +5 =10+5=15..

So 5n is larger in magnitude

but if n is lets say -4,

Delete5+n will give you 5+(-4)=-1

5n will give you 5 x (-4)=-20

So it actually varies from number to number

5n is larger because 5n is 5+n whereas 5n is 5 x n hence 5n is larger.

ReplyDelete5n because 5+n=5+1n and 5n = 5 1n s

ReplyDeleteEither could be larger as n could be any number as it is not defined and therefore the answer cannot be derived simply from this.

ReplyDelete"n" could be any number. It could be smaller than 1, it could be larger than 100.

For example,

DeleteIf "n" is larger than 1.5, then 5n would be larger.

If "n" is smaller than 1, then 5+n would be larger.

If "n" is equal to 1, then 5+n will still be larger.

Thus, the answer to this may be either one. There is no way of figuring out the answer as "n" is not defined and the answer cannot be found.

5n. 5n is 5xn, which is larger than 5 + n. If n is 3, 5x3=15, while 5+3=8. Thus 5n is larger.

ReplyDelete5n as multiplication is larger than addition

ReplyDeleteIf n is more than 1, 5n is bigger as 5x2=10 while 5+2=7

ReplyDeleteif n is 0 or 1, 5+n is more as 5+1=6 and 5+0=5 while 5x1=10 and 5x0=0

Both are larger depending on what N is. if it N is a negative number or 0, 5+N is larger. So if N is -5, 5+N is 0 while 5N is -25. So 5+N is larger.

ReplyDeleteIf n is not a negative number, 5N is larger. If N is 2, 5+N is 7, 5N is 10. So 5N is larger.

ReplyDelete5n cause 5n= 5XN

ReplyDeletee.g. n=3 so

5XN= 5X3

= 15

and 5+N= 5+3

= 8

If n is zero, or below, 5+n is larger.

ReplyDeleteIf n is 1, 5+n and 5n 5+n is larger.

If n is above zero, 5n is larger.

5n = 5*n

if n>1, 5*n>5+n

if n=1, 5*n<5+n

if n=0, 5*n<5+n

if n≤-1, 5*n<5+n

It depends on what n is.

ReplyDeleteFor example, if n=1, 5n=5x1=5, 5+n=5+1=6. Therefore, 5+n would be larger.

However, if n=2, 5n=5x2=10, 5+n=5+2=7. Therefore, 5n would be larger.

It depends

ReplyDeleteIf n is a negative number 5 + n is more e.g. 5+n=5+-3=2 while 5n=5x-3=-15

If n is a positive number 5n is more e.g. 5+n=5+4=9 while 5n=5 x 4 =20

The answer varies on whether or not 'n' is a negative number or not. If 'n' is a negative number, example -2, 5n would then be 5 x (-2) would be same as 5 x 2 which is -10 and 5 + n would be the same as 5 + (-2) and that would be 3.

ReplyDeleteIf 'n' is a positive number ,for example 2, then 5n would be 5 x 2 which would be 10. 5 + n would be 7.

The answer will vary, if n is 0, 5x0=0, 5+0=5, so in this case, 5+n is larger. But if n is 2, 5x2=10, 5+2=7, so this time, 5xn is larger.

ReplyDeleteIf it is a fraction, for example 1/2, then 5n would be 5 x 1/2 which is 2.5 = 5/2 = 2 1/2. 5 +n would be 5 1/2.

ReplyDelete5+n can either be equal to, greater than or smaller than 5n, depending on the value of n.

ReplyDelete1. 5+n=5n

n= 1.25

2. 5+n<5n

n>1.25

3. 5+n>5n

n<1.25
