What can you conclude about the dot plot of the data set? Check all that apply. The range of the number line should be 0 to 7 to represent the frequency. Four families said they ate out twice the previous week. One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week. The data set is symmetrical. The median best represents the data set.

[ad_1]

Answer:

The correct options are:

  • Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.
  • One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.
  • The median best represents the data set.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given a data set as:

4, 2, 2, 0, 1, 6, 3, 2, 5, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1

On arranging this data set in the frequency table we get:

Number of times they went for dinner    Number of families  

           0                                                          2

           1                                                           3

           2                                                          4

           3                                                           1

           4                                                           2

           5                                                           1

           6                                                            1

  • Hence, the range of the number line is between 0 to 6.
  • Also there are 4 dots above 2.

    Hence,  Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.

  • Also there is one dot above 5.

        Hence,  One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.

  • The data set is not symmetrical since the median is 2 and the data points to the left and to the right do not have symmetry.

Hence, the data set is not symmetrical.

  • Also we know that the median of the data is the central tendency of the data and always best represents the data.

Hence, The median best represents the data set.

What messages do the modern shows give you about family life? how do they get these messages across? do you feel the images portrayed by these modern shows are accurate? back up your comments with specific examples. what are some of the negative images presented about family life in the modern shows? give specific examples. what are some positive images presented about family life in the modern shows? give specific examples. how do the families in the modern shows solve their problems? do you feel this is realistic?

However, they also point out that it’s OK to have an unusual kind of family structure. On One Tree Hill, for example, Lucas is being raised by a single mom, and he has a close relationship with his uncle, but his dad isn’t completely out of the picture. On a teen show such as iCarly, on Nick, Carly’s older brother plays the role of guardian, because her dad is in the Air Force. Her mom is never really spoken of. 

2. I do feel that most of the portrayal of family is accurate, on TV. Modern shows have steered away from the conventional “Mom, Dad, 2.5 kids plus dog” formula, which is accurate, because not all TV watchers are fortunate enough to have that kind of situation. See above answer for specific examples. 

3. I think that a definite negative theme in today’s modern shows, revolve around views on alcohol and drugs. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own views, but more often than not, after a character drinks, or does something they shouldn’t, they panic about what their parents will do once they find out. This panic may lead them to increasingly dangerous situations. For example, in OTH, Nathan is drinking, and then goes out to drive his girlfriend’s car. When he crashes it into another car, he realizes the trouble he is in, and leaves the scene of the accident; thus potentially getting him in even more trouble. I realize that TV is in no way an accurate depiction of all life aspects, and it is “only TV”, but I think Nathan should have faced the consequences right away, because by running from the scene, he only put himself in danger of being caught, or arrested. Again, though, I’m reading too much into it.

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 correct answer is that this passage makes part of an Adventure.

Explanation:

The reason comes from knowing the different genres and styles of writing fiction and also taking into account the way that the situation is being narrated. In this passage, the writer is telling us about a woman, Danielle, who, after a terrible accident is found herself alone, in a really dangerous situation, in an even more dangerous and mysterious place, which she must survive in order to carry out her final goal, which is to deliver justice to those who caused the crash and the death of her fellow passengers. The fact that the passage itself narrates the terrible happenings, bust most of all, the difficult circumstances that Danielle must face for survival, shows that the author wants us to almost get into this adventure of survival with the character and understand how difficult this will be for her. These are all characteristics of the Adventure genre in literature.

Think about the characters of Feld and Miriam. What message about families is evident in their relationship?

[ad_1]

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.

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 American society, romantic love is considered the main reason for people to marry. On the other hand, in some societies, romantic love is considered a form of obsession or madness. In fact, even in many societies where “true love” is not considered a form of insanity, arranged marriages are still the norm. For example, in many cultures it’s believed that marriage is basically an economic arrangement. Thus, a farmer needs a wife both to bear children and to share the farm work while raising new “hands” as additional farm labor. In other societies, marriage is mainly about cementing connections between families. Indeed, most marriages between members of European royal or aristocratic lineages were primarily aimed at creating trust, loyalty, and mutual obligations between privileged and powerful families.

Answer:

The Embargo Act placed a restriction on trade after European ships harassed U.S. vessels.

Explanation:

The Embargo Act, adopted by the United States Congress in 1807, imposed a full embargo on the French Empire involved in the war and Great Britain.

The embargo was a response to violations of the neutrality of the United States by seizing US merchant ships and merchandise as a prism by the navies of both European countries. In addition, the Royal Navy used the forced incorporation of American citizens into the crews of warships. Both Great Britain and France resorted to plundering American units as a way to sustain the war effort. The Chesapeake Leopard Affair was the brightest and most painful example of this policy for the citizens of the young American nation.

President Thomas Jefferson acted prudently in trying to match the response to the public’s agitation. His recommendation was economic warfare, not military mobilization. Congress passed the Embargo Act on December 22, 1807. The expected effects of this drastic move were to force both France and Britain to withdraw from robbery activity, forced enlistment and to respect the neutrality of the United States. The embargo turned out to be an impractical measure, as it was both a diplomatic and economic failure. After its introduction, it imposed great burdens on the American economy and citizens.

The extensive circumvention of the restrictions on maritime and land trade by American merchants and the legal loopholes in the act have significantly reduced the embargo. British merchants have appropriated the lucrative trade routes left by Americans. Demand for English goods in South America increased, which compensated for the losses suffered as a result of the embargo.

The bill also undermined the national unity, causing strong protests, especially in New England’s commercial centers. It intensified support for the Federalist Party and contributed with it to obtaining a large number of seats in Congress.

On March 1, 1809, after 15 months, in the last days of President Jefferson’s term, the embargo was canceled.

Whether or not you agree or disagree, I do not know. But I will give you my opinion and if you need me to come up with another paragraph, just ask.

Mankind has come a very far way with technology development, so far in fact, driverless cars are beginning to come about. But whether this new form of transport is safe for us or not: that is the question. From my point of view, driverless cars may look and seem safe from the outside, but as that popular saying goes: “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”. I have to disagree with this new form of technology, mostly due to the fact that it is a huge advancement from the cars that we have to steer ourselves. Simply putting in your destination for the car to take you there does not seem very safe at all, or even trustworthy for that matter. What if some controls that cause the car to steer itself just so happen to malfunction? What if it takes you to a completely different destination than the one you were originally going to? What if you had to get to that specific destination at a certain time? You could get in trouble if you were late to such an event, or even your job. Plus, you need to consider the fact that this driverless car needs to know its surroundings at all times. What if it just so happens to go through a red light, and cause a car accident? What if it doesn’t recognize the pedestrian jaywalking across the street, and hits him? What if you’re driving on the highway, and the car goes over the speed limit? A police officer could catch that and pull you over, y’know. You need to make sure at all times that there is nothing wrong with your driverless car, especially if it has something to do with recognizing its surroundings, because it could just cause an accident at any moment, and you would be put to blame for it. My final point is that considering the fact that driverless cars are a huge technology development, they will cost a hefty price. If someone is considering buying one of these vehicles, they would have to consider the pros and cons of buying one, and whether it is really worth it or not. And having to get something repaired on it could also come at a big price, especially if one of the main features of the car is broken. To conclude my opinion, I believe that driverless cars may not be so safe, smart, and reliable as they may look from the outside. The manufacturers will have to run many experiments on them and to make sure the car itself and all of its features work properly before putting it out on the market. So, let’s stick with the cars we can control ourselves for now until mankind is certain that they will have the capability of owning driverless cars.

I hope this helps you! (And I hope it’s not too long, either… I’m known for getting carried away with writing! xD)

1- The American author who was most directly inspired by the ideals of Transcendentalism was Henry David Thoreau.

Thoreau was a philosopher of nature and its relation to the human condition. In his early years he followed Transcendentalism, a loose and eclectic idealist philosophy that argued that an ideal spiritual state transcends, or goes beyond the physical and the empirical, and that intuition is achieved through personal intuition rather than religious doctrine. In its opinion, nature is the outward sign of the inner spirit, expressing the “radical correspondence of visible things and human thoughts.”

2- Transcendentalism central value was the human connection with nature.

For the transcendentalists, the soul of each individual is identical to the soul of the world and contains what the world contains.Transcendentalists worked with the feeling that the advent of a new era was within reach. They were critical of their contemporary society for their unreflective conformity, and urged each individual to seek “an original relationship with the universe.”

3- During the mid-19th century, Transcendentalist writers had a strong influence over the formation of  utopian communities.

4- The Transcendentalist writing that most directly influenced African American activists in the 1950s and 1960s was “Two Rivers”.

5- Transcendentalism was centered on writers and thinkers from New England.

The vast majority of transcendentalist writers and thinkers came from the State of Massachusetts, and had been educated at Harvard University.

Answer: Height of building = 11.5 feet.

Explanation:

Since we have given that

Height of flagpole = 30 foot

Length of shadow of flagpole = 52 foot

According to question, if a building is built 32 feet away,

Length of shadow of building will be

52-32=20 foot

Let height of building be h.

Now, we know that there is direct variation, so it becomes

frac{30}{52}=frac{h}{20}\\30times 20=52times h\\frac{600}{32}=h\\h=11.5 feet

Hence, height of building = 11.5 feet.
