  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is lesson 269. Today the title of the lesson is difference between resolve and solve. Yeah.

  • Sometimes I will get students ask me what's the difference between these two words ? So, let's look at the note here.

  • If you resolve a problem , issue, etc. , you have dealt with it and have worked something out and

  • brings the matter or the question to an

  • end. However, this does not necessarily mean that

  • everyone involved in the final decision

  • or conclusion is happy. Yes.

  • So when you resolve something you probably have two different sides, and probably some people will

  • have to give in.

  • And you know, give up something in order

  • to compromise, in order to to make

  • something come to an end. So then we say

  • that we resolve that. We finally worked it out.

  • Now it's definitely over. But you

  • had to resolve how to work it out especially between two different sides Let's continue.

  • When you solve something, you have found a solution. You found an answer to something.

  • You have dealt

  • with it successfully and have found a

  • logical and complete answer. Let's continue here. We are more likely to use solve with a math problem

  • Yeah. We would never say that we resolved the math problem.

  • We didn't work with two different sides

  • of two different groups and negotiate an answer ,

  • or negotiate a conclusion. We have found

  • the answer. That's it. It's clear .

  • A puzzle the same thing. You found the answer

  • to the puzzle. No, no negotiation no compromise. no nothing like that. Riddle , the same thing.

  • A mystery you finally found the answer to

  • the answer to the mystery.

  • You have a conclusion. You have an answer

  • that tells you definitely why something

  • happened. I think like a few years back

  • they finally figured out the mystery of

  • the aurora borealis. Remember those

  • beautiful lights that used to appear in

  • the sky. For many, many years they didn't

  • know why it happened. Now they finally

  • scientifically came up with an answer

  • that they know how it happened. So they

  • they solved the mystery. A murder case

  • Yes. A detective solved a murder case, he

  • figured out who was the murderer. Who

  • killed someone. Again you wouldn't say

  • you resolved the murder case. Again

  • there's no negotiation here. You're not

  • trying to negotiate with somebody to

  • come to an answer. You solved it. You

  • figured it out. You figure out the

  • definite answer. He is the murderer and

  • hopefully they're right. Let's go on. We

  • are more likely to use resolved with a

  • dispute. Again here, clearly you have two

  • different sides and probably each side

  • is probably going to have to compromise. So

  • in the end. You may come to a conclusion.

  • You may put it to an end, but maybe not

  • everybody got what they wanted. So maybe

  • not everybody's completely happy.

  • The same thing with conflict . You know , conflict in a

  • war. Again you may have to work with two

  • different groups, two different sides. You

  • have to work something out.

  • Disagreement definitely, negotiation. So.

  • Yeah, so usually when we say resolve, it often implies one or more of these things

  • were happening. There was a dispute, conflict and disagreement , negotiations.

  • Two sides had to work something out to

  • come to a final end. So that the situation or the matter is now over. Completely.

  • Okay. so let's look at some examples . Example

  • number one I finally solved that puzzle. Yeah. You found the answer to that puzzle. You know how to do it.

  • Maybe like, you know like a Rubik's cube or something. you wouldn't say you resolved a Rubik's cube. That would be really weird. Number two he was the only

  • one who was able to solve

  • that math problem. You know, math problems

  • definitely are solved. We don't resolve it. There's no negotiations, where you're not

  • trying to work out some dispute on both sides. You, you solve a math problem.

  • All right. Number three. That detective solved

  • this murder case. So you know maybe he

  • found enough evidence of proof to say

  • you know with most certainty that , that's

  • probably the murderer. Good. Number four,

  • the mediator resolved the dispute.

  • Again, it's dispute two different sides arguing.

  • Between management and the union. Yeah. So

  • a particular union and the management .

  • You know maybe it was a possibly of a strike or

  • maybe they were on strike already.

  • You had to work with both sides had to work

  • out some, some, some agreements between

  • them. So you resolved the agreement. You

  • resolved the dispute. You brought it to an end. All right.

  • Number five. Keep your fingers crossed.

  • Remember we always say that. You know

  • especially for luck. I hope this

  • administration has resolved the North

  • Korean conflict. Yeah. You know what's presently

  • happening in North Korea, at the moment it does

  • seem like North Korea is really denuclearizing.

  • There's a lot of evidence that

  • they're taking them apart and possibly in the

  • future, maybe the two Koreas will

  • reunite. Let's hope that the conflict between them has finally resolved.

  • Okay. I hope

  • it's clear. I hope you got it. I hope it was informative Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
