Kudos for
R.A.EGIVEN: \(\frac{|a|}{b} > 1\)
In other words, \(\frac{|a|}{b}\) is POSITIVE
Since |a| must be POSITIVE, we know that
b must also be POSITIVEGIVEN: \(a+b<0\)
We already know that
b is POSITIVESince the SUM a+b is negative, we know that
a is NEGATIVEWe have:
QUANTITY A:
some NEGATIVE numberQUANTITY B: 0
