Which of the following terms describes the competition between european powers for colonial territory in Africa

[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.

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

 

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = $1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = $47

 

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = $234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $8.4

Direct labor per unit = $131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = $4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = $240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = $8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = $113,220 / 22,200
units sold = $5.1

TE = $26.8

 

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = $47 – $26.8

CM = $20.2 per unit

The following equation of parabola is given:

p(x)= – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

where p(x) = y

This is a standard form of the parabola. We need to
convert this into vertex form of equation. The equation must be in the form:

y – k = a (x – h)^2

Where h and k are the vertex of the parabola. Therefore,

y = – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495)

Completing the square:

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + _) – (-5)* _

Where the value in the blank _ is = -b/2

Since b = -48        therefore,

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + 81) + 405

y – 405 = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 576)

y – 405 = -5 (x – 24)^2

Therefore the vertex is at points (24, 405).

The company should make 24 tables per day to attain maximum

Answer:

3 hours.          

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the time taken by shoe repairman to repair one pair.

We have been given that his assistant, who takes twice as long to repair a pair of shoes. So time taken by his assistant to repair one pair of shoes would be 2x.

The number of pair of shoes repaired by repairman in one hour would be frac{1}{x}.

The number of pair of shoes repaired by assistant in one hour would be frac{1}{2x}.

We have been given that together they can fix 16 pairs of shoes in an eight-hour day. We can represent this information in an equation as:

frac{1}{x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{8}{16}

frac{1}{x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

Let us have a common denominator.

frac{2*1}{2*x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{2}{2x}+frac{1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{2+1}{2x}=frac{1}{2}

frac{3}{2x}=frac{1}{2}  

Upon cross multiplying our equation we will get,

2x*1=3*2

2x=3*2

frac{2x}{2}=frac{3*2}{2}

x=3

Therefore, it take 3 hours for the repairman to fix one pair of shoes by himself.

sources.

Primary sources allow researchers to get as close as possible to original ideas, events, and empirical research as possible. Such sources may include creative works, first hand or contemporary accounts of events, and the publication of the results of empirical observations or research. We list sources for historical primary documents.

Secondary sources analyze, review, or summarize information in primary resources or other secondary resources. Even sources presenting facts or descriptions about events are secondary unless they are based on direct participation or observation. Moreover, secondary sources often rely on other secondary sources and standard disciplinary methods to reach results, and they provide the principle sources of analysis about primary sources.

Tertiary sources provide overviews of topics by synthesizing information gathered from other resources. Tertiary resources often provide data in a convenient form or provide information with context by which to interpret it.

The distinctions between primary, secondary, and tertiary sources can be ambiguous. An individual document may be a primary source in one context and a secondary source in another. Encyclopedias are typically considered tertiary sources, but a study of how encyclopedias have changed on the Internet would use them as primary sources. Time is a defining element.

Further explanation

Transformation is a change in shape or change in location from a building to another build.

A build can be changed in shape or location using transformation

There are several forms of transformation, including translation, dilation, rotation or reflection.

Reflection from a point or shape is a reflection of a point or shape to a certain line called the mirror axis

A point A (x, y) is reflected on the line y = -x so that the shadow of point

A ‘(x’, y ‘) is obtained. The relationship between these two points is determined by:

x ‘= -y

y ‘= -x

A (x, y) — (y = -x )—> A ‘(- y, -x)

y = –x (x, y) –> (–4, 9).

A shadow of point A ‘(- 4.9) which is reflected by the line y = -x, the starting point of the relation formula above is:

x ‘= -y

-4 = -y

4 = y

and

y ‘= -x

9 = -x

-9 = x

So the starting point = A (-9.4)

Answer:

D.Prolonged conflict between Jewish and Palestinian people inhabiting the land

Explanation:

The history of Israel as a State begins with its proclamation of independence in 1948. This historical fact was achieved after more than sixty years of political and diplomatic efforts by Zionism to establish a sovereign nation in what they considered to be their homeland , the ancient Land of Israel, also known as Palestine from the time of the Roman Empire.

Immediately after the declaration of the State of Israel, Egypt, Syria, Transjordan, Iraq and Lebanon invaded the new country. In a bloody and desperate war characterized by the use of improvised weapons and skillful tactics, the Jews were able to repel the Arab attack and even advanced occupying new territories. A ceasefire was signed by both sides, establishing that the occupied territories would remain in the hands of Israel. As a result of this war, Israel occupied the territory assigned to it by the United Nations, plus a good part of the territory assigned to the Arabs and the western part of Jerusalem (Israel increased its territory by almost 50%). The western area of ​​the Jordan (known as the West Bank after the Jordanian annexation) was occupied by the Arabs, occupied by Transjordania and the Gaza Strip, occupied by Egypt.

In 1949, under the auspices of the United Nations, four armistices were signed in Rhodes (Greece) between Israel and Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, but in practice they never succeeded in solving the problem of Palestine and the violence in this region continues until our days.

3- The correct answer is A. The Line of Demarcation was established near the 38th Parallel because it divided Korea into two equal halves.

After Japan’s surrender in World War II in 1945, the parallel was established as the boundary between the Soviet (North) and American (South) occupation zones. The parallel divided the Korean peninsula approximately in half. In 1948 the line became the border between the two newly created nations; South Korea and North Korea.

Roosevelt’s administration in the framework of the 7th Pan American Conference in December 1933 regarding its relations with Latin America during the 1933- 1945, when the intervention of the United States in the internal affairs of the Latin American countries was appeasing (the United States had openly invaded several countries of the region in the first years of the 20th century, such as Cuba, Mexico, Haiti, Panama, the Dominican Republic or Nicaragua. ).

5- The correct answer is D. Cuba was a serious threat to the United States during the Cold War because its proximity to the American territory made it possible for large-scale missile attacks. Cuba is only 93 miles far away from Florida, so it constituted a great menace during the Cold War.

The gross domestic product of Iceland was $25.88 billion in 2018, and the growth rate was 4.6%. The country has recovered from the crisis that it suffered in 2008.

Financial crisis:

In 2008, Iceland nationalized its largest banks, namely, Glitnir Bank, Landsbanki, and Kaupthing Bank, which had defaulted on foreign debt of $62 billion. The collapse of the bank sent foreign investors out of the country. Its currency krona went down by 50 percent, and the stock market fell by 95 percent. The crisis started when the bank accepted deposits from the United Kingdom and the Netherlands and offered an interest rate of 15 percent. This created inflation in the economy. The banks invested in $100 billion in foreign companies, soccer teams, and real estate.
