My grandfather, who lost his short-term memory sometime during the first Eisenhower Administration, calls me into his study because he wants to tell me the story he’s never told anybody before again. . . . My grandfather slams the door and motions me to the chair in front of his desk. I’ll be thirteen in two weeks. “There’s something I want to tell you, son,” he says. “Something I’ve never told anybody. You think you’re ready? You think you’ve got the gumption?” “I think so.” “Think so?” “I know so, sir. I know I’ve got the gumption.” . . . “It was late,” he says. “Someone knocked on my stateroom door. I leaped up. In those days I slept in uniform—shoes, too.” My grandfather smiles. His face is so perfectly round that his smile looks like a gash in a basketball. I smile back. “Don’t smile,” he says. “Just because I’m smiling, don’t assume I couldn’t kill you right now. Know that about a man.” Source: Orner, Peter. “The Raft.” The Atlantic Online.

If a baker doubles a recipe that calls for 6-2/3 cups of flour. How many cups will be needed in all?

[ad_1]

Hey there!

The easiest way I could think to do this is by converting your mixed number to an improper fraction and multiplying the fraction by 2, or 2 over 1. 

6 frac{2}{3}  = 6*3+2 =  frac{20}{3}

frac{20}{3} *  frac{2}{1}

To multiply fractions, you can just multiply the numerators and denominators and simplify, if applicable. 

frac{20}{3} * frac{2}{1} = frac{40}{3}

Since you can’t simplify this fraction in its improper form, just convert it back into a mixed number. 

 frac{40}{3} = 13 frac{1}{3}

So, your answer will be 13 frac{1}{3}

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

PLEASE HELP Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary, and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits involved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than to reprove. "I incline to, Cain's heresy*," he used to say. "I let my brother go to the devil in his quaintly 'own way.'" In this character, it was frequently his fortune to be the last reputable acquaintance and the last good influence in the lives of down-going men. And to such as these, so long as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour. No doubt the feat was easy to Mr. Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendship seemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity; and that was the lawyer's way. His friends were those of his own blood or those whom he had known the longest; his affections, like ivy, were the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object. Hence, no doubt, the bond that united him to Mr. Richard Enfield, his distant kinsman, the well-known man about town. It was a nut to crack for many, what these two could see in each other, or what subject they could find in common. It was reported by those who encountered them in their Sunday walks, that they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend. For all that, the two men put the greatest store by these excursions, counted them the chief jewel of each week, and not only set aside occasions of pleasure, but even resisted the calls of business, that they might enjoy them uninterrupted. *The biblical story of Cain and Abel is a story about two brothers who gave offerings to God. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not. Jealous, Cain killed his brother. When God asked Cain where Abel was, Cain said, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” By saying this, Cain implied that what his brother did was his own business. (Genesis 4:1-16) What is significant about “Cain’s heresy” in this passage? A.It shows that Mr. Utterson is a deeply religious and righteous person. B.It shows that Mr. Utterson tries not to judge others or get in their business. C.It shows the Mr. Utterson wants to steal from other people’s businesses. D.It shows that Mr. Utterson does not believe in any kind of religion at all.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

What is one way that the post-war reform movements in the British and French colonies might be different if they occurred today? Organizers would make use of social media, such as Facebook, to organize and unify. The movements would be struck down more violently because the British and French governments are more powerful. Reformers would not have demanded change because British and French economies are more stable. Fewer people around the world would be aware of the reformers and their calls for change.

[ad_1]

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner. 

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony. 

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world. 

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too. 

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way. 

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again. 

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it. 

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies. 

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists. 

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out. 

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

A certain drug dosage calls for 25 mg per kg per day and is divided into two doses (1 every 12 hours). if a person weighs 80 pounds, how much of the drug should be administered each time?

[ad_1]

127=7 (mod n) means when 127 is divided by n, the division leaves a remainder of 7.

The statement is equivalent to
120=0 (mod n), meaning that n divides 120.

All divisors of 120 will satisfy the statement because 120 divided by a divisor (factor) will leave a remainder of 0.

Factors of 120 are:
n={1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12,15,20,24,30,40,60,120}, |n|=16.
You can count how many such values of n there are, and try to check that each one satisfies 127=7 mod n.

The answers to the blank provided above are SHORT RUN, and LOSSES ARE SMALLEST, respectively. So in the short run, if profits are not possible, the perfectly competitive firm will seek out the quantity of output where losses are smallest. Provided that the given firm is perfectly competitive, this means that it has already stabilized its processes even if there are instances that there is no gain acquired. BUT, this instance is only possible in the short run. In the long run, this small losses would turn into big ones as well, making the firm unstable.

First we calculate for the total number of possibilities
(permutation) to select 4 disks from the container:

Total number of possibilities = 10 * 9 * 8 * 7

Total number of possibilities = 5040


Now let us find the 4 disks that will result in a range of 7.

Range = highest number – lowest number

The pair of highest and lowest number that will result in
range of 7 is: (1 & 8), (2 & 9), (3 & 10)

 

As a basis of calculation, let us use the pair 1 & 8.

There are four possible ways to select 1 and three for 8.

Arrangements of maximum and minimum pair = 4 * 3

Arrangements of maximum and minimum pair=12

Now we need to calculate for the remaining 2 disk. There
are 6 numbers between 1 & 8. The total possibilities for selecting 2 disk
from the remaining 6 is:

Possibilities of selecting 2 disk from remaining 6 = 6 *
5

Possibilities of selecting 2 disk from remaining 6 = 30

Therefore, the total possibility to get a range of 7 from
a pair of 1 & 8 is:

Total possibility for a pair = 12 * 30

Total possibility for a pair = 360

 

Since there are a total of three pairs (1 & 8), (2
& 9), (3 & 10):

Total possibilities of the 3 pairs = 360 * 3

Total possibilities of the 3 pairs = 1080

 

Therefore:

Probability = Total possibilities of the 3 pairs / Total
number of possibilities

Probability
= 1080 / 5040 = 3 / 14                      (FINAL
ANSWER)

(Informational Response) Review the excerpt above. Answer the following question in a well-developed paragraph. How does the excerpt prepare the reader for the last line? What details and descriptions prepare the reader for the change in tone and mood in that final line? **Be sure to re-state the question in your topic sentence and use specific examples and details from the story to support your answers. Proofread your work before submitting. Chapter I, The Beginning of Things They were not railway children to begin with. I don’t suppose they had ever thought about railways except as a means of getting to Maskelyne and Cook’s, the Pantomime, Zoological Gardens, and Madame Tussaud’s. They were just ordinary suburban children, and they lived with their Father and Mother in an ordinary red-brick-fronted villa, with coloured glass in the front door, a tiled passage that was called a hall, a bath-room with hot and cold water, electric bells, French windows, and a good deal of white paint, and ‘every modern convenience’, as the house-agents say. There were three of them. Roberta was the eldest. Of course, Mothers never have favourites, but if their Mother HAD had a favourite, it might have been Roberta. Next came Peter, who wished to be an Engineer when he grew up; and the youngest was Phyllis, who meant extremely well. Mother did not spend all her time in paying dull calls to dull ladies, and sitting dully at home waiting for dull ladies to pay calls to her. She was almost always there, ready to play with the children, and read to them, and help them to do their home-lessons. Besides this she used to write stories for them while they were at school, and read them aloud after tea, and she always made up funny pieces of poetry for their birthdays and for other great occasions, such as the christening of the new kittens, or the refurnishing of the doll’s house, or the time when they were getting over the mumps. These three lucky children always had everything they needed: pretty clothes, good fires, a lovely nursery with heaps of toys, and a Mother Goose wall-paper. They had a kind and merry nursemaid, and a dog who was called James, and who was their very own. They also had a Father who was just perfect—never cross, never unjust, and always ready for a game—at least, if at any time he was NOT ready, he always had an excellent reason for it, and explained the reason to the children so interestingly and funnily that they felt sure he couldn’t help himself. You will think that they ought to have been very happy. And so they were, but they did not know HOW happy till the pretty life in the Red Villa was over and done with, and they had to live a very different life indeed. The dreadful change came quite suddenly.

Explanation:

Odysseus chooses to do battle with the Greeks despite the fact that he wouldn’t like to leave his wife and child. Being a decent pioneer he will be, he sets aside his own wants and unselfishly offers himself to fighting for his nation.

During the war with Troy, he is splendid in fighting. He thinks of the possibility of the Trojan Horse. At the point when the Trojans open their doors and get the Trojan Horse, Odysseus and the Greeks get inside the city of Troy. Odysseus drives his men to triumph.  

During his trek home from the war, Odysseus drives his men through numerous obstructions. He is brave even with beasts and hazardous ladies, for example, Circe and Calypso. Odysseus never surrenders in attempting to protect his men. Despite the fact that he loses men, he is crushed by the way that he couldn’t spare every one of his men.
