## Which lines in this excerpt from act I of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet reveal that Romeo was avoiding Benvolio? BENVOLIO: Madam, an hour before the worshipped sun Peered forth the golden window of the east, A troubled mind drove me to walk abroad, Where, underneath the grove of sycamore That westward rooteth from this city side, So early walking did I see your son. Towards him I made, but he was ‘ware of me And stole into the covert of the wood. I, measuring his affections by my own, Which then most sought where most might not be found, Being one too many by my weary self, Pursued my humor not pursuing his, And gladly shunned who gladly fled from me.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

## Which excerpt from “The Man to Send Rain Clouds” best illustrates how Leon’s beliefs differ from those of Father Paul? “Well, I’m glad you understand. I hope I’ll be seeing you at Mass this week—we missed you last Sunday. See if you can get old Teofilo to come with you.” The priest smiled and waved at them as they drove away. Leon walked toward the old man’s bed. The red plaid shawl had been shaken and spread carefully over the bed, and a new brown flannel shirt and pair of stiff new Levi’s were arranged neatly beside the pillow. It was noontime now because the church bells rang the Angelus. They ate the beans with hot bread, and nobody said anything until after Teresa poured the coffee. Leon turned to look up at the high blue mountains in the deep snow that reflected a faint red light from the west. He felt good because it was finished, and he was happy about the sprinkling of the holy water; now the old man could send them big thunderclouds for sure.

Answer: D) Bountiful harvests, to suggest Gant’s agricultural success.

Explanation: In the given excerpt we can see many sensorial details like “His grape vines thickened into brawny ropes of brown” and “And the flowers grew in rioting glory in his yard—the velvet-leaved nasturtium, slashed with a hundred tawny dyes”, these sensorial details about Gant’s harvests helps to create an image of abundance, and products of great quality, which demonstrates Gant’s agricultural success.

## Larry travels 60 miles per hour going to a friend’s house and 50 miles per hour coming back, using the same road. he drove a total of 5 hours. what is the distance from larry’s house to his friend’s house, rounded to the nearest mile?

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

= 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

A counterclaim, in my own words, is a rebuttle to any comments one might have against your Claim and one of it’s reasons.

So! in order to fit this into your dilemma, you’re going to want to ask yourself
“What might someone have to say against my reason? (Pick one)”

Then you should start the draft of your counter off by putting *If my readers where to question with “well what if___?” then i’d simply give them a reason / solution like—[COUNTER CLAIM]*

Now, onto my ideas for a good counter / rebuttle..

along the lines of; why stop the use of pesticides? They prevent produce waste. Simply put: “Remember the ultimate goal of having a honey bee farm, to harvest honey, not to kill off pests with detrimental pesticides.
So if investment into pesticides is so important to the extent of having to use such risky methods. Why not invest in a more beneficial method? Such as sheltering the bee’s with an insect proof structure? Or do away with the whole idea of outdoor honey farms, and make a systematic facility with flowers, bees, sunlight, etc.”

Just did that by simply asking myself those questions above, you got this.
And you have my permission to use this work if need be, but you’ve made it this far. Like you said & im sure of it as well after reading your work; you can finish this on your own. GL

## The hastings family drove 12/25 of the distance to yellowstone national park on the first day of their vacation.what percent of the distance to the park remained for them to drive?

A dilation is a transformation, with center O and a scale factor of k that is not zero, that maps O to itself and any other point P to P’.
The center O is a fixed point, P’ is the image of P, points O, P and P’ are on the same line.

Thus, a dilation of is a dilation with centre O and a scale factor of 2 mapping the original figure to the image in such a way that the distances from O to the vertices of the image are twice the distances from O to the original figure. Also the size of the image are twice the size of the original figure.

In the dilation of triangle QRS with the rule ,
1.) The size of the image △Q’R’S’ is twice the size of △QRS (i.e. .
Thus the first option is true.

2.) Line Q’S’ will lie on the same line as line QS. The slope of line QS = (3 – 1) / (-3 – (-1)) = 2 / -2 = -1.
Thus the second option is true.

3.) QR cannot be longer than Q’R’ as the size of the image is twice the size of the original figure.
Thus the third option is not true.

4.) The vertices of the image cannot be closer to the origin than those of the pre-image as the distances from O to the vertices of the image are twice the distances from O to the original figure.
Thus the fourth option is not true.

5.) The distance from Q’ to the origin is twice the distance from Q to the origin as the distances from O to the vertices of the image are twice the distances from O to the original figure.
Thus the fifth option is true.

Samira looks away and says no every time Saul tells her to get in the car. Samira tells him she still wants to stay at the party. B. Samira looks away and firmly says no at first, but later she gets in the car and lets Saul drive her home. C. Samira stands up straight and shakes her head, but then she gets in the car and lets Saul drive her home anyway. D. Samira stands up straight, shakes her head, and firmly says no every time Saul asks her to get in the car. She then waits for her aunt to come pick her up.

While when you use a fitness center, you have access to more machines, and more resources, when at home, you are more likely to have the amenities you would like, and more focus on your exercise, and less on others. As far as cost, if you are looking to buy machines, then it would be much cheaper to go to a fitness center, but if you are looking to do exercises with items you may already have, or other cheap items, then it would, in that case be more cost effective to work out at home.

## Sara left home at 11:15am. It took her 5 minutes to drive to the mall. She shopped for 55 minutes and spent 1.5 hours at the beauty shop. She had to wait 15 minutes to get food at the take-out restaurant. It took her another 10 minutes to drive home. If she drove straight home, what time did she return?

Option 1.

Step-by-step explanation:

As per table given

Option A. Range between the maximum and minimum values for taco truck one will be the mean value of the truck 1 for 10 days

= (721+658+437+527+601+468+425+431+508+515)/10 = 5291/10 = 529.10

Range between maximum and minimum value for truck 2

= (462+471+426+654+647+732+701+684+632+698)/10 = 6107/10 = 610.70

Therefore the range between maximum and minimum values for truck 2 is greater than truck 1.

Option B. is not true because food truck 1 sold the most on day 1 and truck 2 on day 6.

Option C. is not true because on average truck 2 sold more tacos than truck 1 over the period of 10 days.

Option D. Median of truck 1 is 601 while for truck 2 is 647 so this option is also not valid.

Therefore option A. is the answer.

## Read this excerpt from The Odyssey: The wind drove me out of Ilium on to Ismarus,the Cicones’ stronghold. There I sacked the city,killed the men, but as for the wives and plunder,that rich haul we dragged away from the placewe shared it round so no one, not on my account,would go deprived of his fair share of spoils. Which sentence states implicit information you can learn from the passage? A.Odysseus raided the Cicones and killed all the men. B.Odysseus is a generous leader. C.Odysseus’s ship was pushed by the wind towards Ismarus. D.Odysseus took great riches from the Cicones.

1) The witches predictions foreshadow what might happen because they are predictions that are at the beginning of the play and in the middle too, so the tension is building up as to why the witches said them.

2) Macbeth’s reactions to the first 3 predictions were no other than shocked and confused. The other 3 predictions, he didn’t care because he thought he was unbeatable and nothing and nobody can stop him!! But his ambitions so go down hill as his ambitions take control over him. He is a ‘brave solider’ at the beginning of the play, but turns into a ‘dangerous’ criminal near the end of the play. Macbeth’s ambitions are his biggest weakness of everything.

3) Lady Macbeth is a clever, but deep down she is cruel as her husband is. She influenced her husband to kill Duncan, even if Macbeth didn’t want too. The term ‘coward’ was used to make Macbeth have the courage to kill Duncan. Also Lady Macbeth wanted to change from being a woman to being a man, ‘Come to my woman’s breast and take my milk for gall’ and ‘unsex me here’ meaning she want to have the courage to kill Duncan. She wants man power because women were know as the ‘weak’ ones and Lady Macbeth wanted to be the strongest one.

– Macbeth feels guilty, remorse, from killing Duncan. (He has a guilty conscience).
– He starts having hallucinations, especially after the death of Banquo. He hears voices after the murder of Duncan, ‘Macbeth does murder sleep’ and this creeps him out. And the dagger that leads him to the kings room.
– His kingship was bad to begin with.
– Macbeth’s Fate and Free will change throughout the play.

I hope this helps as much as it will help me!!! I’m sorry if I didn’t help with question 4, I didn’t know that one, but I did the other 3!!
