A. a < 0 and b ≠ 2 B. a < 0 and b = 2 C. a ≠ 0 and b > 2 D. a > 0 and b < 2 E.There are no such values of a and b Answer by JBarnum(2088)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!look at a what cant a be? if a=0 then 0 cant be < 0, if a is > 0 then the out come would be more than 0 and make the statement false, so a has to be < 0. look at b, its in the absolute value bars, so no matter if its negative or positive the outcome will always be possitive. but if b= 2 the outcome is a(0)=0 which will not satisfy the problem, so b cant = 2. A. a < 0 and b ≠ 2
