“. . . Their publication was senseless. The book is an indeterminate heap of contradictory drafts. I examined it once: in the third chapter the hero dies, in the fourth he is alive . . .” Considering its prefix, syntax, and context, what does indeterminate mean in this excerpt from “The Garden of Forking Paths”? imposing inconclusive messy overwhelming


Considering its prefix, syntax, and context, indeterminate in this excerpt from “The Garden of Forking Paths” means overwhelming.

Indeterminate means not exactly known, established, or defined. Within the context of the excerpt we might consider that the word indeterminate means messy or overwhelming. However, since it is able to be examined and is contradicting, the best choice is overwhelming. There is no other evidence in the passage to suggest that the books were in messy heap.

I also had this question in my english lesson,and the correct answer is context clues. Also the word context clues is pretty self explanatory.

The function H(t) = −16t2 + 48t + 12 shows the height H(t), in feet, of a cannon ball after t seconds. A second cannon ball moves in the air along a path represented by g(t) = 10 + 15.2t, where g(t) is the height, in feet, of the object from the ground at time t seconds. Part A: Create a table using integers 0 through 3 for the 2 functions. Between what 2 seconds is the solution to H(t) = g(t) located? How do you know? (6 points) Part B: Explain what the solution from Part A means in the context of the problem. (4 points)


Given two functions: h(t)=-16t^2+48t+12 and g(t)=10+15.2t
A] The table of both functions from 0 to 3 will be:
h(t)=-16t^2+48t+12
t           0           1            2          3
h(t)       12         44          44        12

g(t)=10+15.2t

t          0        1            2             3
g(t)     10      25.2       40.4        55.6

the point in which h(t)=g(t) will be given by:
-16t^2+48t+12=10+15.2t
forming quadratic equation we get:
-16t^2+32.8t+12=0
solving the above quadratic equation using the formula we get:
t=-0.32 or t=2.4
therefore we conclude that they only met once, at point t=2.4 sec
therefore they met between points t=-0.32 and t=2.4

In sambian context, the cultural emphasis on boys to go through rituals such as piercing their noses and thrashing them with sticks suggest that, for the sambia, a.men must work hard to maintain


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 04:22 AM

The correct answer should be to maintain masculinity. The idea behind it all is that those things like inflicting a lot of pain decide whether someone is masculine enough or not, and these rituals decide who will be a real man and who will not. The boys who go through them become masculine.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Answer:

The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.

Explanation:

Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.

When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.

Answer:    Joshua is correct

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.

In the context of the milgram studies, despite the expressed american ideal of independence, we are _________ from early childhood to obey authority figures such as parents and teachers.?


Answer:

Americans will pay more for goods produced in Mexico in 2011.

Explanation:

This is a situation of devaluation of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso. If in 2009 the dollar was worth 16 pesos, but in 2011 it is 14, it means that the purchasing power of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso has decreased, although it is still high.

In that case, for an American to buy products produced in Mexico in 2011, he or she will spend a little more dollars than he or she would spend in 2009. This is common, since the currencies fluctuate according to the financial market . Thus, the dollar can be valued or devalued, as happened in this example.

If, for example, in 2015 the dollar will buy 20 pesos, it will mean that the dollar appreciated in relation to the peso, increasing the purchasing power of Americans for Mexican products.

A new competitor has circumvented the entry barriers and entered in the former monopoly that Starfire Coffee chain has held for 12 years. In this case the entry barriers were double.

On the first hand, the potential competitor had to be able to produce at a low cost to compete in prices with the already established firm. It was able to achieve so by offering the same product for 3 instead of 5.

Moreover, it had to compete with a firm that counted with the loyalty of customers. This loyalty is actually the base of its monopoly. In such case, the potential competitor needs to develop a high quality product that is able to attract and change the consumption habits of consumers who were loyal to the former monopolist.

Answer:

The correct answer to the question is that although scientists have studied meteorites and know that there are two major types, they are still unsure of the exact location from which they came.

Explanation:

Meteorites, Meteors, and Meteoroids, are types of space rocks, that have been classified by science according to where they are at a certain point in time. A Meteoroid, is the name given to the space rock that is still outside of the Earth´s atmosphere, and it can be as small as sand grains, or as big as an asteorid. A Meteor, is a piece of a Meteoroid that enters the atmosphere, and while most are burned against the planet´s surface, some make it in and can be found. When the piece makes into Earth, and hits the ground, they are known as Meteorites. Scientists know exactly the origin of these rocks (planets, stars, asteroids, moons) and they can calculate their general locations. But what they still cannot predict with certainty is the exact location from which a Meteoroid, or asteroid, will come from.

The Civil Rights Act expanded the federal government’s power.

Further Explanation:

The Civil Rights Act was one of the most important civil rights legislation passed in the 1960’s. This law essentially outlawed discrimination in the work place and public places on the basis of race, sex, national origin, gender, etc. The passing of this law was thanks in large part to the Civil Rights movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s. The goal of this law was to gain legal and social equality, especially for African American citizens.

Besides protecting the rights of African American citizens and women, this law also expanded the power of the federal government. This is due to the fact that the federal government now has the power to enforce this law and penalize individuals/companies who violate this law. Ultimately, this would help more African American citizens to join the workforce without facing discrimination.

Pls help I’ll follow and medal The function f(x) = –x2 + 16x – 60 models the daily profit, in dollars, a shop makes for selling candles, where x is the number of candles sold, and f(x) is the amount of profit. Part A: Determine the vertex. What does this calculation mean in the context of the problem? (5 points) Part B: Determine the x-intercepts. What do these values mean in the context of the problem? (5 points)


For any quadratic functions, ax² + bx + c, we can easily find the x-coordinate of its vertex through the use of the formula below.

x_{vertex} = frac{-b}{2a}

where a and b are the coefficients of the function. For f(x), we have a = -1 and b = -16. Thus, we have
 
x_{vertex} = frac{-16}{2(-1)}
x_{vertex} = 8

Since we now have the x-coordinate of the vertex, we can just easily substitute 8 into f(x) as shown below.

y_{vertex} = f(8) = -(8)+16(8)-60
y_{vertex} = 60

Thus, the vertex of f(x) is (8, 60). The vertex of the function shows the maximum value that the function can reach. For this particular case, the vertex represents the maximum profit that the shop owner could earn.

The x-intercepts of the function are the values of x when f(x) is zero. By equation f(x) with zero, we can solve the quadratic equation to find the x-intercepts as shown below.

-x^{2}+16x-60 = 0
x^{2}-16x+60=
(x-6)(x-10) = 0
x = 6
x=10

From this, we can see that the x-intercepts are (6, 0) and (10, 0). We just discussed that the x-intercepts are the values of x when y is zero. So, for this case it means that the shop does not earn a profit if they sell 6 or 10 candles. Basically, the x-intercepts represent the number candles sold if the shop wants to break even.

Words such as did, mom, and pop have something in common with the fundamental tool of recombinant dna technology. in the context of recombinant dna technology, which term would be used to describe such words?


A component or a molecule which when incorporated into the DNA changes its genetic composition is called a mutagen.

Further Explanation:

A mutagen is a compound that might be chemical or physical in nature and cause changes in the genetic material which are heritable and irreversible. When the repair mechanism is unable to recognize the mutagenic effects, it tends to escape the lesions created by the mutagen. Such mutations or lesions become fixed with time and can be inherited by the progeny cells. The changes occurred due to mutagen are called mutations.

The mutations caused due to mutagens are known as induced mutations whereas, some mutations occur spontaneously due to DNA replication error, error in recombination and repair and are called spontaneous mutations.

The mutagens are categorized as follows:

1. Chemical mutagens

The chemical compounds such as aromatic amines, alkylating agents, and deaminating agents directly interact with the DNA and produce mutagenic effects. For example, nitrous oxide is a deaminating agent and causes cytosine to convert into uracil changing the DNA sequence. The alkylating agents result in breakages and crosslinking in the DNA by adding ethyl or methyl group to the bases.  

2. Physical mutagens

The ionizing radiations, radioactive decay, and the ultraviolet radiations are the physical agents that cause mutations in the DNA. The radiations like gamma rays and X-rays result in DNA breakages. The ultraviolet radiations absorbed by the bases results in the formation of pyrimidine dimers.  

3. Biological mutagens

Bacteria, viruses, and transposons act as biological agents to bring about mutation. The transposons translocate into DNA fragment and disrupt the genetic composition of the functional genes. The virus also disrupts the genetic function once incorporated into the genome. Certain bacteria produce oxidative species which cause DNA damage and increase the mutation efficiency.
