## Behaviorists believe that psychologists should focus on _____. a person’s sexual conflict a person’s ideas and beliefs inner drives and motives observable behaviors

I believe the correct answer is the last option. Behaviorists believe that psychologists should focus on observable behaviors. It is an approach in psychology that focuses on behavioral aspects of the thought. For behaviorists, all of the behaviors are obtained by conditioning, wither by classical conditioning or operant conditioning. It happens by interaction with the environment. They believe that the responses made by people to the stimuli from the environment shape our overall actions and actions. Also, learning for them is just acquiring new behavior from the environmental conditions. Its general approach is based on the principle “stimulus-response” where in every stimulus there is always a corresponding response.

## If joe drives 30 mph 1/2 an hour and then 60 for 2 hours, then how far did he drive

135 miles

Step-by-step explanation:

Distance = speed × Time,

Given,

Speed = 30 mph,

Time = hour,

Thus, distance = = 15 miles,

Now, speed = 60 mph,

time = 2 hours,

So, distance = 60 × 2= 120 miles,

Hence, the total distance covered = 15 miles + 120 miles = 135 miles.

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.

## A motorist drives along a straight road at a constant speed of 15.0 m/s. Just as she passes a parked motorcycle police offi cer, the offi cer starts to accelerate at 2.00 m/s2 to overtake her. Assuming that the offi cer maintains this acceleration, (a) determine the time interval required for the police offi cer to reach the motorist. Find (b) the speed and (c) the total displacement of the offi cer as he overtakes the motorist.

a) The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) The total distance traveled by the officer was 225 m.

Explanation:

The equations for the position and velocity of an object moving in a straight line are as follows:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

v = v0 + a · t

Where:

x = position at time t

x0 = initial position

v0 = initial velocity

t = time

a = acceleration

v = velocity at time t

a)When the officer reaches the motorist, the position of the motorist is the same as the position of the officer:

x motorist = x officer

Using the equation for the position:

x motirist = x0 + v · t (since a = 0).

x officer = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

Let´s place our frame of reference at the point where the officer starts following the motorist so that x0 = 0 for both:

x motorist = x officer

x0 + v · t = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²      (the officer starts form rest, then, v0 = 0)

v · t = 1/2 · a · t²

Solving for t:

2 v/a = t

t = 2 · 15.0 m/s/ 2.00 m/s² = 15 s

The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) Now, we can calculate the speed of the officer using the time calculated in a) and the  equation for velocity:

v = v0 + a · t

v = 0 m/s + 2.00 m/s² · 15 s

v = 30 m/s

The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) Using the equation for the position, we can find the traveled distance in 15 s:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

x = 1/2 · 2.00 m/s² · (15s)² = 225 m

## According to abraham maslow, all people _____. learn from the environment learn from observing others have the same basic needs or motivations are driven by inner drives and motives

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 lungs, oxygen diffuses into the blood and is loaded onto hemoglobin for transport. in the tissues, oxygen is unloaded from hemoglobin and diffuses from the blood into nearby cells. what drives the diffusion of oxygen?

The integumentary system covers the surface of the body is true about the integumentry system.

Explanation:

The integumentary system includes the skin, nails, glands, hairs, and nerves. Its main role is to act as a barrier to protect the body from the outside environment. It also retains body fluids, regulates body temperature, eliminates waste products, and protects against disease.

The integumentary system is the largest organ in the body that covers the surface of the body.

Thus, The integumentary system covers the surface of the body is the true statement about the integumentry system.

## Jody drives 120 miles south from Kingston, NY to Princeton, NJ. If she drives 60 mph, how long will it take her to make the trip?

1. To understand this, consider first that the 60 feet of fencing goes all the way around a rectangle and is the perimeter. So, if one side is x, so is the opposite side; and if another side is (30-x), so is its opposite side, so the total perimeter, 60 = 2x + 2(30-x). So, they’ve arranged it so that sides x and (30-x) always provide the 60 foot perimeter, even though you can change x.
Secondly, to maximize the area, A, consider that A = x (30-x), or -x^2 +30x, a quadratic equation, a parabolic curve facing down (the x^2 term is negative, so it faces down), and has a maximum, which will be where the derivative is zero. So, take the derivative: -2x + 30, set it to zero and solve and you find: x = 15. Plunk the 15 back into the original equation for area A, -x^2 + 30x, and you find it’s -15*15 + 30*15 = 15(30-15) = 15*15 = 225 square feet. (I hope… feel free to check!) But it’s x they wanter, which will be the 15 feet.
2. 3x^2=15x-2 They ask for the discriminant: that’s the part of the Quadratic Equation under the square root sign, isn’t it? so first put this into standard form and it should become obvious, just read it from the equation: 3x^2 – 15x + 2 = 0, the discriminant (call it N) is b^2 -4ac if my memory’s working, a = 3, b = -15, c = 2, so N = 225 – 4*3*2 = 225 – 24 = 201 (do please check, I’m hurring ’cause I have to put supper on soon!). Since that’s positive, there should be two solutions. Use sthe Quadratic Formula: [ -b ± √(D) ] / 2a. should be the 2 solutions, [15 ± √(201)] / 6, take it from there.
3. Those four choices should make it obvious to you, as they’re all in slope-intercept form, all have slope 100. Trick is to substitute x = 2,000 for that point, and find out what y would be, the 100*x would be 200,000, and you’re subtracting something from a choice, to get 3,000 for that point, so the something had better be 197,000 … 🙂 Or you could say they’re giving you y = 100x – S (S for “something” to tell which answer to choose), and it has got to work for x = 2,000 and y = 3,000, so solve it for S, that is
S = 100x – y, then put in your point (2,000, 3,000) and you’ll have S = 100*(2,000) – (3,000) and from that you’d find your answer.
But you’re right: aim to understand how they work, then the method’s easy to remember, and easy to use in a zillion similar questions. The methods do make sense, and work quite well;)

## A motorcyclist drives from a to b with the uniform speed of 30 km/h-1 and returns back with the speed of 20 km/h-1.find the average speed?

If the car is travelling at 150 km/hr it will travel 180.12 m before stopping.

Explanation:

Here for the first condition

Initial speed, u = 50 km/hr = 13.89 m/s

Distance, s = 20 m

Final speed, v = 0 m/s

We have equation of motion, v² = u²+2as

0² = 13.89²+2 x a x 20

a = -4.82 m/s²

Deceleration of car brake = 4.82 m/s²

For the second condition

Initial speed, u = 150 km/hr = 41.67 m/s

Final speed, v = 0 m/s

Acceleration, a = -4.82 m/s²

We have equation of motion, v² = u²+2as

0² = 41.67²-2 x 4.82 x s

s = 180.12 m

If the car is travelling at 150 km/hr it will travel 180.12 m before stopping.

## Blake is driving home from the water park. He drives for 60 miles and stops to rest before driving 20 more miles. Unfortunately, Blake remembers he was supposed to pick up a present for his friend on the way home, so he turns around and drives 36 miles back towards the water park. Once he picks up the present, he drives the rest of the way home, which is 70 miles away. What is the distance from the water park to Blake’s home?

I think you need to use the SoHCaHToA method here.

S means sin
C means cos
T means tan
O means opposite
H means hypotenuse

The hypotenuse is the longest side in a right angled triangle.

The adjacent is the side between the angle and the right angle.

The opposite is the side that is left.

If you have the value of the opposite cross all of the o’s out. The same with the other sides. If only one type of letter is crossed out, cross out the type of letter that stands for the length you want to find. The part of the word with two crosses tells you what function to use (sin, cos or tan)

In this example, the function used will be sin.

sinx°=o÷h
cosx°=a÷h
tanx°=o÷a

since we are using sin, the formula we will use is :

sinx°=o÷h

Then you plug in what you know.

sin30°=30÷h
h=30÷sin30°
h=60ft

If there was a case when you needed to work out an angle, inverse sin, or cos, or tan would be used.
