Arm yourself with the tools to be the king or queen of heady mathematical debates, like the age old question of whether 0.999.... = 1.

If \( \frac{4}{2} > \frac{1}{a} ,\) is it always true that \( 4 \cdot a > 2 \cdot 1 ?\)

\[ \frac{a}{bc} = \frac{a}{b} \cdot \frac{a}{c} \]

For how many different values of \(a\) is the above statement possibly true?

**HINT:** You should be trying to solve for \( a ,\) so as a first step write the equation as \( \frac{a}{bc} = \frac{a^2}{bc} .\)
