The ratio of the number of adults to the number of children on a certain bus tour was 4 to 22. if the total number of passengers on the bus tour was 91, how many adults were on the tour?


Adults = a
children = c
total passengers = t

ratio :
4c = 22 a
c = (22 a) / 4

a + c = t
a + c = 91
a + (22 a) / 4 = 91

for all of the elements, we multiply by 4, so it’s much easier formula.

4a + 22a = (91 * 4)
26a = 364

a = 364 / 26 = 14

c = (22 a) / 4
c = (14 * 22) / 4 = 77

The body temperatures of adults are normally distributed with a mean of 98.6° f and a standard deviation of 0.60° f. if 36 adults are randomly selected, find the probability that their mean body temperature is greater than 98.4° f. 0.0228 0.8188 0.9360 0.9772


Here the population standard deviation is 0.60 degree F.  If a sample of 36 adults is randomly selected, that results in a sample standard deviation of 0.60 degree F divided by the square root of 36:  0.10 degree F.

The probability in question is the area under the standard normal probability distribution between 98.4 degree F and infinity, and intuitively you can detect that this will be more than 0.5 (corresponding to 50%).

Convert 98.4 degrees F to a z-score, using the sample standard deviation (0.10 degree F).  That z score is 
       98.4-98.6
z = ————–   =  -0.20/0.10 = -2
           0.10

We need to determine the area under the standard normal curve to the right of z=-2.  Use a table of z-scores to do this, or use your calculator’s built-in probability functions.  My result is 98.21% (corresponding to an area of 0.9821).

With my calculator I can find this probability using the following command:

normalcdf(-2,100000,0.10).

In 1959, roughly _____ percent of older adults were below the federal poverty line. 30 35 40 45


1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

Answer:

Dogs can be strong companions, but they also have needs that many people forget to address.

Explanation:

The author’s claim is that many people forget to address the needs of their dogs. The author continues to talk about some of those needs, like regular washing and grooming to avoid becoming matted and sick. The author is not simply talking about washing and grooming, but other needs the dogs might have as well. These could include things like walking, a proper diet, or brushing their teeth.

What is a reason to avoid using alcohol?A. Using alcohol is promoted by the media.BY. Using alcohol is socially acceptable.C. Using alcohol can lead to addiction.D. Using alcohol is legal for most adults.


This is completely false.

Legal Medications can come with many risks.

For example, oxycodone, a painkiller, is very similar to heroin in the risk of addictiveness as well as abusability.

The same being with amphetamines (adderall/dexedrine) to meth.

Just because it is legal, does not mean it is any safer or more dangerous.

Can anyone recommend English novels for young adults? also please give a brief summary about it, thank you


Well; You have the classics

1984, you might have been asked to read this one already in school, if not I suggest going ahead and reading it; its fun to be ahead of your class. 

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website. 

Personally I prefer fantasy novels; 

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist 
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery 

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind 
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

Which of the following is a true statement? A) Compressions for adults should be at least 2 inches but no more than 2.4 inches. B) Do not lean on the victim when giving chest compressions. C) Compressions should be given at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute. D) ALL ANSWERS ARE CORRECT.


1. The answer is “C”.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.  

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

2. The answer is “A”.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

There were 490 people at play. The admission price was $3.00 for adults and $1.00 for children. The admission receipts were $990. How many adults and children attended


Answer:

Maximum number of watches Samantha can buy equals:

10

Step-by-step explanation:

Samantha wants to use her savings of $1150 to buy shirts and watches for her family.

The total price of the shirts she bought was $84.

The watches cost $99 each.

Let she bought x watches

then, 84+99x≤1150

subtracting by 84 on both sides, we get

99x≤1066

dividing both sides by 99, we get

x≤ 10.7676

Hence, maximum number of watches Samantha can buy equals:

Answer:

The example of deductive reasoning is A. In my community, it’s a law that all dogs out on walks must be on leashes, so most dogs I see on walks today will be on leashes.

Explanation:

Deductive reasoning goes from a broad premise to a more specific/limited conclusion. That means we first have information that reaches everyone or a large group of people/things and, from that information, we can reach a logical conclusion about one or more individuals.

Letter A is the only option that presents deductive reasoning. Our broad premise is the existence of a law that all dogs on walks must be on leashes. If that premise is true, it is only logical to conclude that, when there is a law, most people will obey it. If most people obey it, then most of the dogs I see on walks today will be on leashes.

A medical researcher selects a random sample 1,000 adults and finds that 2% have this type of cancer. Each if the 1000 adults is given the test and it is found that the test indicates cancer 99% of those who do not. Based on the results, what is the probability of a ramdomly chosen person having cancer given that the test indicates cancer? Of a person having cancer given that the test does not indicate cancer?

Use conditional probability:
P(A|B) = frac{P(AB)}{P(B)}

For part 1)
A = Has cancer
B = Test indicates cancer
We know that P(A) = 0.02 and the test has 0.99 success rate.
The test will be positive for 99% of those with cancer and 1% of those without.
P(B) = (.02)(.99) + (.98)(.01)
P(AB) is only for those who both have cancer and test positive, (.02)(.99)

P(A|B) = frac{.02*.99}{.02*.99 + .98*.01} = 0.6689

Part 2 is similar except B is now Test is negative.
The is true for 1% for those with cancer, 99% for those without.
P(B) = (.02)(.01)+(.98)(.99)
P(AB) is if you both have cancer and test negative, (.02)(.01)

P(A|B) = frac{.02*.01}{.02*.01+.98*.99} = 0.0002

Who Is Most affected by suicide ? A. mostly young women B. mostly all ages and genders C. mostly young men D. mostly adults

ADVANTAGES:
Since this is a minimally invasive procedure, there is relatively less pain and faster recovery compared to open surgery.
There is also less blood loss and shorter hospital stay.
Nerve Sparing Prostatectomy is accomplished with high degree of accuracy.
As with open surgery, this technique is highly effective and offers a high chance of cure from prostate cancer.
The patient will know if he is cancer free within a month after surgery, as opposed to up to two years after radiation. 
Because this surgery is minimally invasive, many of the disadvantages associated with open surgery are alleviated.
DISADVANTAGES:
This procedure is highly technical.  Most physicians performing prostate surgery have not been trained in this procedure.  Therefore, it is not available at all locations, requiring the patient to travel to an experienced surgeon and robotic surgery center.  It is recommended that these procedures be performed by urologic surgeons trained in oncologic surgery with extensive laparoscopic and robotic surgical experience.  It is recommended that the surgeon performing robotic laparoscopic prostatectomy have done at least 200 of these procedures.  The procedure should be done at centers of excellence, supporting high tech robotic programs.  Although adverse effects are rare, they could include incontinence, erectile dysfunction, possible formation of blood clots in the leg veins, and infection.

I hope this helps, if you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. If it is no trouble, would you also be so kind as to mark this response as the brainliest?

Which of the following statements about dealing with stressors is true? A. Adults should model good stress management. B. Stressors decrease as children age. C. Children aren’t affected by stressors. D. Resilience can increase stressors.


Stevenson uses the word ‘sinister’ to imply that there is something possibly wrong with this house or dangerous about this house that they can see on the corner, also foreshadowing things, involving those inside it, and Mr. Hyde is the man who lives in this house.

The writer uses ‘bell nor knocker’ to show how any visitors are not wanted, and creating a feeling of mystery since the person inside clearly does not want anyone to visit them. This would also make people of the victorian era scared, especially the gentlemen since they are meant to bee seen around to gain popularity and a good reputation. Rudeness was frowned upon greatly in victorian society. 

The writer finally uses the contrast between the street and the house to show duality, which is a main theme in the book. The street is described with an ‘air of invitation’, to show how the road almost welcomes you in, and the simile ‘like rows of smiling saleswomen’ puts an image in your head of happiness and comfort, however, the mood suddenly changes once they reach the house. Stevenson uses more violent adjectives, for example, ‘blistered and disdained’ and the word ‘thrust’ suggests that the house almost demands to be seen. The word ‘blistered’ can be used to show how even the paint on the woodwork doesn’t want to be anywhere near the person inside, it is so repulsed by the demon that is Mr. Hyde.

In the rest of the novel, for example in the murder of Sir Danvers Carew, fear is show through the nurse. The nurse who witnesses the attack of the politician is so shocked by what has happened that ‘the maid fainted’. This can also be used to convey the idea that Hyde causes people to have a physical reaction to him, for example in ‘The story of the door’ where ‘Sawbones turned sick and white with the desire to kill him’

Finally, a sense of mystery is created at the very end of the novel, with the line ‘I bring the life of that unhappy Jekyll to an end’ This is the final line, as we do not see the reaction of Utterson to the letter or anything that he thinks or feels thereafter. This leaves us as readers to wonder why this is, and how we think he would have reacted to the letter. The mystery of Jekyll and Hyde is complete, yet the mystery of Victorian society is not.
