## A manufacturing company hired 30 new employees. This hiring increased the company’s total workforce by 5%. How many employees now work at this company?

We can solve
this problem by using the formula:

1 +
fractional increase = (original employees + new employees) / original employees

Lets say,

x = original
employees

Therefore
substituting the known values:

1 + 0.05 = (x
+ 30) / x

1.05 x = x +
30

0.05 x = 30

x = 600

Therefore
the number of employees working now is:

x +  30

= 630

## Two groups of students were asked how many hours they spent reading each day. The table below shows the numbers for each group: Group A 1 2 1 1 3 3 2 2 3 Group B 3 2 3 2 2 2 1 1 2 Based on the table, which of the following is true? The interquartile range for Group A students is 0.5 less than the interquartile range for Group B students. The interquartile range for Group A students is equal to the interquartile range for Group B students. The interquartile range for Group A employees is 0.5 more than to the interquartile range for Group B students. The interquartile range for Group A employees is 1 more than the interquartile range for Group B students.

Solution:

Data represented as number of hours spent in studying by Group A Students:

1,2,1,1,3,3,2,2,3

Arranging it in ascending order: 1,1,1 ,2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3,

As number of terms is odd, The median will be middle value of observation.Which is 2.

The Data arranged in ascending order are , (1,1,1,2),2(2,3,3,3).

Median of (1,1,1,2) = =1

Median of (2,3,3,3)==3

=Interquartile Range ==3-1=2

For Data Set 2,

The Data for group B students are:  3   2 3 2 2 2 1 1 2

Arranging in ascending order: 1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3

total number of observation = 9

Median = 2

Arranging the data as : (1,1,2,2) 2,(2,2,3,3)

Median of (1,1,2,2)= Number of observation is 4 which is even , so Median= =

Median of (2,2,3,3)=

S=Interquartile Range = =

Interquartile range for Group A Students =Interquartile range for Group B students + 1

Option (D) The interquartile range for Group A employees is 1 more than the interquartile range for Group B students is true.

## It takes 31 employees and \$7500 to build a car, and it takes 19 employees and \$4300 to build a motorcycle. Genghis Motors wants to spend more than \$84000 to build cars and motorbikes using at most 706 employees. Let C denote the number of cars they build and M the number of motorbikes they build. Write an inequality that represents the condition based on the number of employees.Write an inequality that represents the condition based on the number of dollars.

we know it takes 31 workers to do a car, and 19 to do a motorcycle… so hmmm to make “c” cars, it will then take 31*c workers, or 31c

to make “m” motorcycles, it will then take 19*c or 19c employees

whatever those amounts of workers needed to make both, must be an amount  that is 706 or less, thus

31c + 19m ⩽ 706

now…. it takes \$7500 to make a car and thus to make “c” cars it will then take 7500* c or 7500c

it takes \$4300 for a motorbike, thus to make “m” motorbikes, it will then take 4300*m, or 4300m

whatever those dollar amounts are, must be 84000 or more, since Genghis Motors wants to spend that OR more

7500c + 4300m > 84000

## You are the shift leader at a fast food restaurant .Two employees named Tonya and Johnny get in a fight.Tonya left out a bunch of food ,but Johnny got blamed and had \$15 taken off his paycheck.Now he wants Tonya to pay him back ,but she is refusing .You call them both into the back room to have a conversation

I would say that I think it would be needed to investigate the facts to determine if it is true that Tonya left out the food that spoiled and not Johnny and if there were any extenuating circumstances and to determine that Johnny had no blame in the incident. If it is determined that Johnny had no blame, then the \$15 should be returned to Johnny by the restaurant and then \$15 taken from Tonya’s pay to correct the situation, keeping in mind that the whole purpose of the pay docking is only to ensure that food is not allowed to spoil.

As it became possible to secure more food, other hungers demandedsatisfaction . . . The demands were for more and better food, for better clothes and for better homes. It required a struggle to satisfy these needs . . .

## Optimization problem:A manufacturer determines that x employees on a certain production line will produce y units per month where . To obtain the maximum monthly production, how many employees should be assigned to the production line?**It is NOT sufficient to find an answer that you think is a max or a min without testing for relative extrema. You MUST test relative extrema at all times by using either the first or second derivative test even if you only have one critical value/point.

Cal problem!

given production
P(x)=75x^2-0.2x^4

To find relative extrema, we need to find P'(x) and solve for P'(x)=0.

P'(x)=150x-0.8x^3    [by the power rule]

Setting P'(x)=0 and solve for extrema.
150x-0.8x^3=0  =>
x(150-0.8x^2)=0 =>
0.8x(187.5-x^2)=0
0.8x(5sqrt(15/2)-x)(5sqrt(15/2)+x)=0
=>
x={0,+5sqrt(15/2), -5sqrt(15/2)}   by the zero product rule.
[note: eqation P'(x)=0 can also be solved by the quadratic formula]

Reject negative root because we cannot hire negative persons.

So possible extrema are x={0,5sqrt(15/2)}

To find out which are relative maxima, we use the second derivative test.  Calculate P”(x), again by the power rule,
P”(x)=-1.6x
For a relative maximum, P”(x)<0, so
P”(0)=0  which is not <0  [in fact, it is an inflection point]
P”(5sqrt(15/2))=-8sqrt(15/2) < 0, therefore x=5sqrt(15/2) is a relative maximum.

However, 5sqrt(15/2)=13.693 persons, which is impossible, so we hire either 13 or 14, but which one?

Let’s go back to P(x) and find that
P(13)=6962.8
P(14)=7016.8

So we say that assigning 14 employees will give a maximum output.

Well; You have the classics

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website.

Personally I prefer fantasy novels;

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

## What is one reason Lowell, Massachusetts, was called a model factory town? a. Factories first appeared in the United States in this city. b. Factories there were the first to employ young children. c. Factory workers there lived in clean, decent housing. d. Factory owners there shortened the employees’ workday.

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.

Explanation:

Before a job interview, it is advisable to prepare a copy of your résumé and references, as well as bring a pen and notepad.

The rest of the alternatives are incorrect because asking the company to keep your résumé on file is inappropriate – you should always carry a copy of  it; asking and answering questions politely happens during the course of the interview; and restating your interest is done after the interview has occurred.

## Employees who keep themselves up to date on company news and continually learn new aspects of their job show _____. A. falsity B. stupidity C. presumption D. integrity

Answer:Leo Tolstoy wrote the novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich to criticize the emerging middle class of modern Russia in the nineteenth century. Ivan Ilyich, his family, and his friends are part of this budding middle class. Tolstoy’s aim in writing this novella was to criticize the thoughts and the approach of middle class people toward their families, their jobs, and society. He used the life of Ivan Ilyich to demonstrate all the aspects of the middle class that he believed were wrong. Tolstoy portrays Ivan Ilyich as a man whose life decisions are based on social acceptance. He chooses his friends and even his wife based on their social standing. When he starts to find his family life unpleasant because of his wife’s constant nagging, he limits his interactions with the whole family. Instead, he seeks comfort in his work. He assumes a formal relationship with his family members, particularly his wife. This change in his feelings and attitude toward his family does not seem strange to him. On the contrary, getting away from his family becomes his life goal:

This aloofness might have grieved Ivan Ilyich had he considered that it ought not to exist, but he now regarded the position as normal, and even made it the goal at which he aimed in family life.

Tolstoy deplored the middle-class habit of maintaining distance with family members in private but keeping up appearances of closeness for the public. Tolstoy shows his character Ivan Ilyich making the effort to maintain this detachment from his family members while ensuring that his family appears on the outside to be a regular and happy family. Even when he has to be at home with his family, he makes sure that they have guests. That way, he can avoid confrontations or meaningful discussions with his family:

His aim was to free himself more and more from those unpleasantnesses and to give them a semblance of harmlessness and propriety. He attained this by spending less and less time with his family, and when obliged to be at home he tried to safeguard his position by the presence of outsiders.

Ilyich’s work soon becomes an obsession, and everything else, including his family is secondary to his job:

The chief thing however was that he had his official duties. The whole interest of his life now centered in the official world and that interest absorbed him.

Through Ivan Ilyich, Tolstoy portrayed a class of people who make determined efforts to escape human contact and suffering by seemingly living in denial. They are people who run away from love and relationships, and they are unwilling to reflect on their lives. Instead, they choose to exist in their self-centered world until they are jolted into reality. In Ivan Ilyich’s case, this jolt comes in the form of his illness in chapter 4.

Tolstoy would not have agreed with Ivan Ilyich’s priorities. Unlike Ivan, Tolstoy looked inward throughout his adult life. He searched for a deeper meaning and purpose, especially in regard to his political and religious ideals. While those ideals eventually caused Tolstoy to avoid his wife, he generally had a close relationship with his family. By all accounts, he seemed very much a man who loved and cherished his wife and their 10 children. While Tolstoy was dedicated to his writing, his family seemed to inspire him, rather than get in the way of his literary genius. His wife was involved in his work, having transcribed most of his writing. Even Tolstoy’s last days were spent on a pilgrimage that he embarked on with his youngest daughter.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

Hey there!

Let’s assume that this question is referring to every digital calendar ever made. As in, even those made on devices without internet connectivity or any other fancy features that we utilize with many digital calendars today.

If a planning device that came with a digital calendar didn’t have internet connectivity, it wouldn’t be able to be connected to the cloud. Back when these devices were around, it wasn’t even plausible to store things like calendar events and contacts in what we know as the “cloud”. Also, these devices probably had to be hardwired to a computer and new software had to be downloaded to them, so the updates weren’t automatic. Archaic, right?

Also, consider the fact that even reputable websites/companies such as Google with Google Calendars or Apple with iCalendar will never go without their malfunctions or threats. Sometimes, these websites can be hacked and the data that they contain can be compromised, especially if they’re stored on the cloud. Also, even though it’s not realistic, Google or Apple could one day decide to completely get rid of their calendar programs altogether. So, this means that digital calendars are definitely able to be destroyed or lost.

That just leaves “They can be used anywhere”. This is true, even with those archaic devices specifically used for scheduling events and such. Nowadays, you have your phone and possibly a laptop on you at all times, which will likely have a calendar on it as a stock application. So, I think this is your answer.

Hope this helped you out! 🙂
