Dominic (Customer)
[00:05:33] hello?

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:05:38] hi :)

Dominic (Customer)
[00:06:00] do you know what the e's mean o the board?

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:06:15] hmm. Let me get a good look at them.
[00:08:29] Are those question marks there for a reason?
[00:09:08] Did I correctly redraw the symbol?

Dominic (Customer)
[00:09:40] yeah and they are supposed to have little blanks below them for the letters
[00:09:44] and yes

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:10:03] Ok. That symbol means "is not an element of"

Dominic (Customer)
[00:10:31] ohhh

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:11:28] Does that make the problem make more sense for you?

Dominic (Customer)
[00:11:43] not really

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:12:10] alright. It looks like we just need to find things that are not an element of something else.

Dominic (Customer)
[00:12:39] okay how would we do that?

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:13:17] We could say that the triangle QRV is not an element of the triangle QRP
[00:13:44] But that's not using the PQ = PT that they gave us.

Dominic (Customer)
[00:13:48] you mean not the same or?>

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:13:54] not part of

Dominic (Customer)
[00:14:15] i dont get it

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:14:30] Does the problem give any other information?

Dominic (Customer)
[00:15:29] nope except the instructions above the chat

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:15:58] oh, alright.

Dominic (Customer)
[00:17:24] hello?

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:17:36] hi, I'm trying to think of how to do this.
[00:17:43] It's a tough one.

Dominic (Customer)
[00:19:00] oh:(
[00:19:23] would you be able to transfer me to another tutor who might know?

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:19:50] I'm a little new, so I'd need to figure out how to transfer you.

Dominic (Customer)
[00:20:00] ohh
[00:20:23] thanks okay:) i will just log back on

Aaron R (Tutor)
[00:20:44] alright, sorry I couldn't help more. At least we made a little progress.
