## Consider a political discussion group consisting of 9 ​Democrats, 7 ​Republicans, and 3 Independents. Suppose that two group members are randomly​ selected, in​ succession, to attend a political convention. Find the probability of selecting no Democrats

Well, first you would add up how many objects you have to select from

9 democrats + 7 Republicans + 3 Independents = 19 total people
so then you would put how many people you can have over that number
so since we don’t want any Democrats it would be 10/19 (.52)
and that tells you the chances of not picking one the first time

then, since that person cannot be selected again, we remove them from the pool, making it only 18 people to pick from and 9 people you want picked so once again you put 9/18 (.50), then you take those, (in decimal form) and multiply them (.26) then convert it to a fraction by moving the decimal to the right two and have 26% chance of no Democrats

## Which best describes the South Carolina convention in December of 1860?

The Neolithic revolution was a profound change in the life of mankind, in which one moves from a nomadic to a sedentary lifestyle, and an economy of collection and hunting is changed to one of agricultural production.

The cultivation of cereals, especially rye, wheat and barley, characteristic of the Fertile Growing zone, became relevant. It is believed, however, that they were not the first plant species to grow. Legumes date a very old crop and also some fruit trees from Asia. The use of ferments and yeasts, responsible for the production of bread and dairy products and, consequently, of alcoholic beverages, is also recorded.

The first animal to enter the habitat of man was the dog. Sheep, bovine and caprine domestication constitute a fundamental pillar of production today. The domestication of the horse occurred at that time, in the area of ​​Central Asia, along with that of the camelids, which occurred in different sectors.

In the Neolithic there was a demographic increase with respect to the paliolithic, so society was divided between those who plowed the earth, those who harvested, those who polished the stones, the collectors, those who work the ceramics and used the looms – mostly women- , those who built homes and those who looked after livestock. It is necessary to mention the entry into surplus scene. From its appearance, it is possible to exchange goods. This first type of trade is called barter.

## At a physics convention, 10 companies set up equal sized square booths in a row along one wall of the convention center. The booths are adjacent to each other and a 4-ft wide walkway surrounds the block of booths on three sides. The total area of the booths and walkway is 2300 ft2. What is the side length of each booth?

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

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

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

d = 10.

Therefore,

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.

When the Texan revolution broke out and the war for independence began in 1835, Goliad was seen as a solid military stronghold because there was an important military supply barracks in the Fort of the Bay, built by the former Spanish Army.

Goliad was located halfway between the port of Copano, to which the Mexican army sent by sea soldiers, ammunition, armament, garrisons destined for the Alamo de San Antonio de Béjar, which functioned as the main political center of Texas.

When Goliad was taken in the second battle of the war, this forced the Mexican army to send its provisions by land, which would severely hamper logistics and would be key in the capture of General Santa María and consequent conclusion of the conflict and declaration of Independence winning the Texas Army.

## Jane was sent by her Chicago-based company to a business convention in Tokyo, Japan. While at lunch, she and several other Americans in attendance sat together at lunch. As they laughed and enjoyed themselves, Jane noticed that many people glanced at them uncomfortably and whispered to each other. When Jane asked the young waitress what was wrong, the girl avoided eye contact with her, shook her head without saying a word, and quickly walked back to the kitchen. Which of the following is most likely the cause of confusion in this scenario? a. The rules governing nonverbal communication in Japan are very different than those in the U.S. b. Nonverbal communication is ambiguous, and there are several people in this scenario who are all interpreting messages that seem foreign to them. c. The multiple channels involved and the many ways in which verbal and nonverbal communication integrate make this situation complicated. d. All of the above are likely causes of confusion in this scenario.

Answer: d. All of the above are likely causes of confusion in this scenario.

In this situation, it is likely that all of the above were causes for confusion. Nonverbal communication can be very different in different cultures. For example, the reason why the Japanese people looked at the Americans could be related to body language, gender roles, appearance, etc. In terms of verbal communication, the Japanese might be surprised at their language, the topics they discuss, their noise levels, etc. Because communication is so linked to culture, it is good to try to get acquainted with the culture before visiting the country.

Charles II (May 29, 1630 – February 6, 1685) was the King of England, King of Scots, and King of Ireland from January 30, 1649 (de jure) or May 29, 1660 (de facto) until his death. His father Charles I had been executed in 1649, following the English Civil War; the monarchy was then abolished and England, and subsequently Scotland and Ireland, became a united republic under Oliver Cromwell, the Lord Protector (see Commonwealth of England and The Protectorate), albeit with Scotland and Ireland under military occupation and de facto martial law. In 1660, shortly after Cromwell’s death, the monarchy was restored under Charles II. He was popularly known as the “Merry Monarch” in reference to the liveliness and hedonism of his court.

The exact date that Charles became king is vague due to the uncertain political situation of the time. His father was executed on January 30, 1649, making him in theory King Charles II from that moment. He was immediately proclaimed king in Scotland on February 5 and Jersey on February 16, 1649, but was also recognized in a few British colonies (especially the Colony and Dominion of Virginia). In Scotland Charles was for some time king in title only. It took two years of negotiation with the Presbyterians before he was finally crowned King of Scots in Scone on January 1, 1651. However, his reign there was short lived as he was soon driven out by the republican armies, led by Oliver Cromwell. His coronation in England would not be until after Cromwell’s death and the monarchy’s restoration in May 1660; Charles spent most of the intervening time exiled in France.
