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 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.

Option: B is the correct answer.

The window size that display all the points are:

0 ≤x ≤ 20  ;   0 ≤ y ≤ 60

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given a table of values as:

            x                       y

             2                      5

             5                      16

             6                      20

             10                     29  

             12                     36

             17                     53

Clearly from the set of given x and y values we could observe that the minimum value attained by x is 2 and maximum value attained by x is 17.

Hence, the all the x-values lie in the interval:

           0 ≤ x ≤ 20

Similarly,  we could observe that the minimum value attained by y is 5 and maximum value attained by y is 53.

Hence, the all the y-values lie in the interval:

           0 ≤ y ≤ 60

Example of an interrogative sentence is where are you going? The answer is C.  

EXPLANATION:  

An interrogative sentence is a sentence which is used to ask a question. Thus, the sign of an interrogative sentence is the question mark “?” at the end of the sentence. An interrogative sentence is also typically marked by transposition of the predicate and subject. The first verb in a verb phrase is before the subject.

Two kinds of interrogative sentence are negative polar interrogatives and reordering declarative sentences. Here are the examples:

• Reordering from declarative sentence

An interrogative sentence is normally formed by reordering the words from declarative form. For example:

Declarative: She went to school this morning

Interrogative:  Did she go to school this morning?

• Negative polar interrogative  

Negative polar interrogative is a negative yes-no question. This type of interrogative sentence is to confirm or check something that the speaker expects or believes. The examples are:

1. Don’t you want any coffee or tea?

2. Could you not hear me?

3. Wasn’t he here at the party?

Answer:

c. The discoloration of ages had been great.

Explanation:

The Fall of the House of Usher (The Fall of the House of Usher) is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe first published in 1839.  The story begins with an unnamed narrator who arrives at the home of his friend, Roderick Usher, having received a letter from him in a distant part of the country complaining about an illness, and asking for his help. When he arrives, the narrator observes a thin crack that extends from the roof at the front of the building to the lake.

Although Poe wrote this tale before the invention of modern psychological science, Roderick’s condition can be described according to his terminology. It includes a form of sensory overload known as hyperesthesia (hypersensitivity to textures, light, sounds, smells and tastes), hypochondria (an excessive worry or temerity in having a serious illness), and acute anxiety. It is revealed that Roderick’s twin sister, Madeline, is also ill and falls into cataleptic trances, as if in a state of death. The narrator is impressed by Roderick’s paintings, and tries to cheer him up by reading with him and listening to his improvised musical compositions on guitar. Roderick sings “The Haunted Palace,” then tells the narrator that he believes that the house in which he lives may be alive, and that this sensitivity stems from the arrangement of the house and the surrounding vegetation.

Sam’s cat can run 45 feet per second about how fast is that in miles per hour

[ad_1]

First, find the circumference of the wheel using C=2 pi r

You know that your diameter is 24. To find the radius, divide the diameter by 2, which is 12.

Input 12 as r and simplify. ->  C=2 pi (12)
C=24 pi

estimate your Pi as 3.14
C=24(3.14)

and multiply. C=75.36

Now you know the distance of one full revolution in inches. To find 200 revolutions, multiply that answer by 200.

75.36 * 200 = 15,072 inches

But because this is in inches, you have to find the answer in feet, so just divide that answer by 12.

15,072 / 12 = 1,256 ft

The burrowing owl is found in dry, open areas such as grasslands, prairies, savannas, deserts, farmlands, golf courses, and other urban areas throughout most of western United States and Florida, Central America, and most of South America. It makes its home in burrows of other animals and primarily eats insects and small rodents. As humans build more cities, nearby burrowing owl habitats change due to destruction of burrows and loss of prey. Which is the least likely outcome of the habitat changes that are described? The niche of the burrowing owl may change as it adapts to the changes. The niche of the burrowing owl may change as it moves to a new habitat. The population of the burrowing owl may be reduced or even become extinct. The population of the burrowing owl may increase in its new surroundings.

Answer:

The correct answer would be “The population of the burrowing owl may increase in its new surroundings”.

Habitat destruction is one of the major causes of extinction of many species.

The living species either move to a new habitat or get extinct due to the scarcity of resources.

In new habitats or niches, they face lot challenges like competition from already existing species, new resources due to which their survival rates reduce to a great extent.

They may evolve to adapt to new habitats, resources, and niches.

Thus, there are least chances that the population of burrowing owl may increase in its new surroundings.

What is electrophoresis? Why does it allow scientists to separate pieces of DNA?

Genetic fingerprinting – the analysis of DNA in order to identify the individual from which the DNA was taken to establish the genetic relatedness of individuals. It is now commonly used in forensic science (for example to identify someone from a blood sample) and to determine whether individuals of endangered species in captivity have been bred or captured from the wild. 
•DNA sequencing – the determination of the precise sequence of nucleotides in a sample of DNA or even a whole genome e.g. the Human Genome Project. 

The process of electrophoresis: 
DNA is chopped, close to the VNTR regions, into fragments using restriction enzymes. The DNA fragments are placed on the agarose gel and a direct current is applied continuously to the gel. The DNA fragments are attracted to the anode. The shorter the fragment, the faster it moves. 
The fragments are transferred onto an absorbent paper placed on top of the gel. The paper is heated to separate the 2 strands in each DNA molecule. Complementary probes which have a radioactive phosphorus isotope are and this pair up with the DNA strands. The paper is placed on an X-ray film and the film goes dark due to radiation emitted by the probes. Now we end up with a pattern of dark stripes on the film matching the positions reached by the fragments in the agarose gel.

Which organelle makes the proteins that are needed by the cell? cell membrane Golgi apparatus ribosomes nucleus

Answer:

The correct answer will be option-ribosomes

Explanation:

The proteins are synthesized from the mRNA molecule through the process of translation in the ribosome.

The ribosomes are the organelles specialized to perform the process of translation. The organelle is made up of two units called large subunit and the small subunit each composed of the rRNA and the ribosomal proteins.

The ribosomes are present in the cell either attached to the surface of the endoplasmic reticulum or freely in the cytoplasm.  

Thus, option-ribosomes are the correct answer.

What is the basis for the difference in how the leading and lagging strands of dna molecules are synthesized?

The answer is because DNA polymerase adds new nucleotides only to the 3′ end of the template strand.

DNA molecule consists of two strands. One of the strands (3′-5′ direction toward the fork) is called leading and it is replicated continuously. The other strand is called lagging strand  (5′-3′ direction toward the fork) and it is replicated discontinuously. After DNA helicase opens the replication fork, these two strands are free and they wait for complementary nucleotides. However, DNA polymerase adds new nucleotides only to the 3′ end of the template strand. Since the leading strand’ free end is 3′ end, DNA polymerase easily adds nucleotides at the 3′ end toward the 5′ end (direction 3′ to 5′). The free end of the lagging strand is 5′ so DNA polymerase cannot start from that end. Therefore, the replication starts on the several places of the lagging strand so DNA  polymerase can add nucleotides at the 3′ end toward the 5′ end.
