## Michelle has four credit cards with the balances and interest rates listed below. Rather than budget to pay each of the credit cards off in 36 months, Michelle would like to pay them off one at a time based on the balance for each credit card. In which order should Michelle pay off her credit cards? Credit Card Balance APR #1 \$4,380 17% #2 \$1,365 19% #3 \$2,480 23% #4 \$5,000 15%

#4, #1, #3, #2

Step-by-step explanation:

We will calculate the total amount for each of the credit card and then arrange them in descending order according to their interest after 36 months (3 years)

Interest on Credit card 1 =

= \$2233

Interest on credit card 2 =

= \$778

Interest on credit card 3 =

= \$1656

Interest on credit card 4 =

= 2250

Hence the correct order to pay off all the credit card balances is

#4, #1, #3, #2

## 3. Which of the following best explains the relationship between U.S. foreign policy in Latin America and the Pacific in the 1800s and early 1900s? The U.S. displayed more interest in Hawaii and the Philippines in the Pacific than in Cuba and Panama. Based on the Monroe Doctrine, the U.S. used more force in Latin America than in the Pacific. Primarily concerned about Latin America, the U.S. had little interest in the Pacific. The U.S. avoided war in both the Pacific and Latin America through peaceful treaties.

## Read the excerpts from different sections “The Scarlet Ibis.” Although Doodle learned to crawl, he showed no signs of walking, but he wasn’t idle. He talked so much that we all quit listening to what he said. It was about this time that Daddy built him a go-cart and I had to pull him around. At first I just paraded him up and down the piazza, but then he started crying to be taken out into the yard and it ended up by my having to lug him wherever I went. If I so much as picked up my cap, he’d start crying to go with me and Mama would call from wherever she was, “Take Doodle with you.” *** He’d nod his head, and I’d say, “Well, if you don’t keep trying, you’ll never learn.” Then I’d paint for him a picture of us as old men, white-haired, him with a long white beard and me still pulling him around in the go-cart. This never failed to make him try again. Based on these excerpts, what best describes the symbol of the go-cart within the story? It changes from a symbol of youth to a symbol of old age. It changes from a symbol of success to a symbol of failure. It changes from a symbol of hope to a symbol of desperation. It changes from a symbol of freedom to a symbol of captivity.

## Read the two passages. Passage One Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now! Passage Two It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound. Based on these two passages, which statement is true? Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own. Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not. Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence. Both authors are in support of the mission statement.

## The entire South did not succumb to the mystique of cotton. Based on this statement, which of the following is true A.Virginia and North Carolina continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry B. South Carolina devoted itself to coal C. Georgia continued to devote themselves to tobacco D. Kentucky cultivated tobacco.

The correct answer is A) Virginia and North Carolina continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry.

The entire South did not succumb to the mystique of cotton. Based on the statement, what is true is that  Virginia and North Carolina continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry.

With no doubt, cotton was the fascination for many farmers in the Southern states. They were dedicated to growing cotton and they did as much as they could. From 1810 to 1850, slavery was an important part of the economy of the Southern states. They depend so much on the labor force of slaves. But no all the states were fascinated with this “cotton fever.” Other Southern states were known for other products. That was the case of  Virginia and North Carolina that continued to devote themselves to the tobacco industry. South Carolina focused on the sugar plantations that were a good business too. Others states, such as Kentucky were renown because they bred and sold horses.

## Based on the story, what is the narrator’s view of the Prussian soldiers compared to the French civilians and soldiers in the story?

All the French characters in the story express hostility toward the Prussians. Berthine shows this attitude most clearly: “Blind anger rose in her heart against the prisoners; she would have been only too glad to kill them all, and so silence them.” In addition, the soldiers find the potential drowning of the enemies funny and cheer as water is pumped into the cellar. From the French characters’ points of view, the enemy soldiers aren’t human.

In contrast, the narrator shows the Prussians to be more complex than the French characters in the story assume. Unlike the other characters in his story, the Prussian soldiers are shown to be very human, and the portrayal of them is quite sympathetic. For example, the Prussian officer has no reason to keep Berthine and her mother alive after getting into the house, yet he keeps his promise of not harming them: “They had placed their rifles and helmets in a corner and waited for supper, as well behaved as children on a school bench.” The narrator also shows the Prussians as being vulnerable, human, and innocent: “Never mind,” replied the soldier, who seemed a decent sort of fellow. “We won’t do you any harm, but you must give us something to eat. We are nearly dead with hunger and fatigue.”

The characters see the Franco-Prussian conflict in a black and white way, but the narrator shows that the whole issue is complex and describes good and bad on both sides.

## It takes 31 employees and \$7500 to build a car, and it takes 19 employees and \$4300 to build a motorcycle. Genghis Motors wants to spend more than \$84000 to build cars and motorbikes using at most 706 employees. Let C denote the number of cars they build and M the number of motorbikes they build. Write an inequality that represents the condition based on the number of employees.Write an inequality that represents the condition based on the number of dollars.

we know it takes 31 workers to do a car, and 19 to do a motorcycle… so hmmm to make “c” cars, it will then take 31*c workers, or 31c

to make “m” motorcycles, it will then take 19*c or 19c employees

whatever those amounts of workers needed to make both, must be an amount  that is 706 or less, thus

31c + 19m ⩽ 706

now…. it takes \$7500 to make a car and thus to make “c” cars it will then take 7500* c or 7500c

it takes \$4300 for a motorbike, thus to make “m” motorbikes, it will then take 4300*m, or 4300m

whatever those dollar amounts are, must be 84000 or more, since Genghis Motors wants to spend that OR more

7500c + 4300m > 84000

## . 13. How can the reader tell that Goodman Brown has been changed by his experience in the woods, based on the following description: “Turning the corner by the meeting-house, he spied the head of Faith, with the pink ribbons, gazing anxiously forth, and bursting into such joy at the sight of him that she skipped along the street and almost kissed her husband before the whole village. But Goodman Brown looked sternly and sadly into her face, and passed on without a greeting.”

The reader can tell that Goodman Brown has been changed by his experience in the woods because when he went home and just as his wife kissed him, he just looked sad and just walked away without kissing or greeting his wife back. It is very opposite to what he usually do when he comes home.

## His was the moment Zachary had been waiting for. He had rehearsed his lines for weeks, silently in his head as he biked to school, out loud in the mirror when he was home alone, and, to get used to an audience, in front of his sister’s stuffed animals and a slightly confused dog. Zachary had not prepared well for last year’s audition, and at the last minute had chosen not to go—too embarrassed—or too scared—he did not know which. Now, as he stood backstage, he thought about last year. He had been so disappointed in himself as he walked home alone, snuck to his room, and flopped sadly into his bed. “Next year will be different,” he vowed then and there. “I will be better prepared.” And he was. He just hoped it was enough. His throat was dry, his palms were sweaty, his heart was pounding, but he was ready to face the spotlight. A hushed silence fell across the auditorium as the drama teacher called his name. Zachary Hamilton. Based on the passage, how do you think Zachary will deal with the conflict in the remainder of the story?

The literary elements suggest that Zachary learned from last year and will have more success this time.

Explanation:

this time Zachary learned to come prepared so he could get the part that he wanted so you should always practice for what you want

## Jason corporation has invested in a machine that cost \$75,000, that has a useful life of fifteen years, and that has no salvage value at the end of its useful life. the machine is being depreciated by the straight-line method, based on its useful life. it will have a payback period of six years. given these data, the simple rate of return on the machine is closest to: (ignore income taxes in this problem.)

We can solve
this problem by first calculating the annual net cash inflow. This can be
solved by remembering that:

Payback period
= Initial investment / Annual net
cash inflow

6 years = \$75,000
/ Annual net
cash inflow

Therefore,
Annual net
cash inflow = \$12,500

Next, we
calculate for the cost. The cost we will consider here is the depreciation
value of the machine.
Annual depreciation
= \$75,000 / 15 years = \$5,000

Therefore the annual net operating income is:
Annual net operating income = \$12,500 – \$5,000 = \$7,500

Simple rate of
return is calculated by:
Simple rate of
return = Annual net operating income / Initial
investment
Simple rate of
return = \$7,500 /
\$75,000 = 0.1 = 10%

## 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.

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 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.

“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.

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.
