Two birds of the same species separate during their migratory flight. After several years, their descendants are quite different from each other. Two species of fish try to swim against the current near a waterfall. One survives, but the other doesn't.

Identify the type of behavior exhibited in the examples described below. Support each answer with a short explanation. Cuckoos often lay their eggs in the nests of other birds, which raise the young cuckoo as their own. However, as the cuckoo matures, it takes on the behavioral characteristics of its biological parents rather than its surrogate parents.


When red crosses with white flowers to give pink flowers, we are looking at incomplete dominance, i.e. the offspring is a blend (pink) of the parents’ characteristics (red or white).

Since we’re given in the question two pink flowers crossed to give 25% red, 25% whit and 50% pink, we would be thinking of a punnett square between RW and RW, to give

RR RW

RW WW

Since both parents are RW, that makes both parents heterozygous.

According to the phylogenetic tree diagram, modern birds are most closely related to ___________.


First of all, the cohesive and adhesive properties of the water molecules fascilitate this. Water molecules stick together and with the walls of the vessels, creating a column of water which doesn t break easily. Moreover the xylem vessels of the tree are very narrow increasing the pressure. Finally, transpiration is taking place as water from the leaves evaporate, thus a continuous osmotic gradient is being created, causing water to be drawn up the tree

A bird’s nest is on top of a power pole that is 30 feet tall. The bird is above the nest and the angle formed from the nest to the bird is 25°. The horizontal distance from the bird to the pole is 100 feet. Approximately how far is the bird above the ground?


Answer:  The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units.

We are to select the correct option that could be used to calculate the coordinates for point B.

Let, (x, y) be the co-ordinates of point B.

According to distance formula, the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d) is given by

d=sqrt{(c-a)^2+(d-b)^2}.

Therefore, the distance between the points A(8, 9) and B(x, y) is given by

d=sqrt{(x-8)^2+(y-9)^2}.

Since, distance between A and B is 10 units, so

d = 10.

Therefore,

10=sqrt{(x-8)^2+(y-9)^2}.

Thus, the correct statement is

10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared.

Option (C) is correct.

Which steps could be used to solve this story problem? The zoo has 20 birds in the enclosure. Twelve of the birds are blue, 3 are red, and the rest are orange. How many birds are orange? A. Multiply 12 × 3. Then add that product to 20. B. Add 12 and 3. Subtract the sum from 20. C. Subtract 3 from 12. Then add that difference to 20. D. Divide 20 ÷ 12. Then add 3 to that quotient.


Answer:

The answer is 1

Step-by-step explanation:

In order to complete the square, you have to know the rule for expanding a square of a binomial.

The rule says:

Let (a+b)^2 a square of a binomial in general

The square of any binomial produces the following three terms:

1.   The square of the first term of the binomial: a^2

2.   Twice the product of the two terms:  2*a*b

3.   The square of the second term: b^2

So, the expand of a square of a binomial is:

(a+b)^2=a^2+2*a*b+b^2

Therefore, we should think which of the three terms mentioned before it is absent.

1. First term is x^2

2. Second term is 2*x

3. Third term must be 1 because it is the unique number which multiplying by x results in 2*x

Finally, adding 1 in both side of the equation:

x^2+2*x+1=13+1\(x+1)^2=14

In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” the speaker is a human, who experiences the startling beauty of nature through the unexpected discovery of an entire sea of daffodils by the water. This poem is pensive and calm, using light, frivolous vocabulary: the daffodils are “fluttering and dancing in the breeze,” and “tossing their heads in sprightly dance.” The waves in the bay, as well, dance and sparkle, and yet the daffodils are more captivating even than the ocean, multitudinous as they are, as the stars in the sky. In Wordsworth’s poem nature is powerful and inviting, exhibiting forces of healing in the form of bright colors and gentle vibes. It is recounted from a comfortable, safe perspective; when the speaker is resting on his safe, warm couch, the memories of his solo walk along the bay …flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils. These recollections serve as a comfort and pleasure to him, even when he is comfortable in a pleasant environment. Such was the power of the scene. De la Mare’s poem also presents nature as a powerful force, but an impersonal, destructive one. The poem is told from the perspective of sea birds in a storm, and the vocabulary is a violent as Wordsworth’s is serene: “And the wind rose, and the sea rose,/To the angry billows’ roar,” and in the second verse, And the yeasty surf curdled over the sands, The gaunt grey rocks between; And the tempest raved, and the lightning’s fire Struck blue on the spindrift hoar – Here the birds have lost control, and the storm is forcing them onto the shore, waves tossing and wind howling, a wholly different scene than Wordsworth’s happy spring day. Even in the end, when the storm breaks and the sun comes out, we see the lingering effects of the chaos – “the bright green headlands shone/As they’d never shone before,” and yet within this setting we have vast hoards of sea birds breaking this lovely post-storm calm with their “screeching, scolding, [and] scrabbling.” But in the final two lines of the poem, we see also “A snowy, silent, sun-washed drift/Of sea-birds on the shore.” And herein lies the true destruction: while a whole host of birds are tumbling through the sky, another host of birds has been killed by the violence of the storm. Both poems depict the unpredictability of nature, and yet because Wordsworth’s poem is from the point of view of a man, on a bright spring day, his poem is more domestic and simple than that of de la Mare. The latter presents the point of view of nature itself, only to switch to a third person, withdrawn perspective at the end of the poem; humans have no role in the events that unfold. Any humans that exist in the area would have been safely indoors during the storm, away from any danger. We therefore get the rawness of nature where we would normally escape it for our fires and our beds; here is the flip-side of natural beauty – natural destruction. This poem is no walk in the garden, but a story of the wildness of natural processes. I NEED HELP WRITING THIS IN MY OWN WORDS PLEASE HELP
