PLEASE HELP!!!!!! The Jonas school district gives awards to its schools based on overall student attendance. The data for attendance are shown in the table, where Low represents the fewest days attended and High represents the most days attended for a single student. School Low High Range Mean Median IRQ σ High School M 128 180 62 141 160 55.5 41.5 High School N 131 180 49 159 154 48.5 36.5 High School P 140 180 40 153 165 32.5 31.5 Part A: If the school district wants to award the school that has the most consistent attendance among its students, which high school should it choose and why? Justify your answer mathematically. Part B: If the school district wants to award the school with the highest average attendance, which school should it choose and why? Justify your answer mathematically.

Answer:

High School P has the most consistent attendance among its students.

School N should be awarded for the highest average attendance.

Step-by-step explanation:

Consider the provided information.

Part A: If the school district wants to award the school that has the most consistent attendance among its students, which high school should it choose and why? Justify your answer mathematically.

Standard deviation (σ) is a measure of how a data set is spread out.

If the standard deviation is low, this implies that the information tends to be near to the set mean, whereas a high standard deviation implies that the information points are spread across a wider spectrum of values.

Therefore, for more consistency we need to look for the low standard deviation.

From the provided table we can see that the school P has low standard deviation (σ) i.e 31.5

Hence, High School P has the most consistent attendance among its students.

Part B: If the school district wants to award the school with the highest average attendance, which school should it choose and why? Justify your answer mathematically.

The formula for mean is:

Mean=frac{x_1+x_2+...+x_n}{n}

Mean is the same as average.

The sum of mean or average will be larger if each students contributes more attendance.

For highest average attendance the school with higher mean should be awarded.

Hence, School N should be awarded for the highest average attendance.

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

Hope this helps

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”
