## bridge hand is made up of 13 cards from a deck of 52. Find the probability that a hand chosen at random contains at least 1 nine. The probability that a bridge hand chosen at random contains at least 1 nine is:

C(n,r) = n!/(r!(n-r)!)

You take the number of possible 13 card hands with no 9 in them and subtract that from the total number of possible 13 card hands 9’s included.

so C(52,13) – C(48,13)
The number of all possible 13 card hands is:
52!/13!(52-13)! or 52!/13!*39! which is 635,013,559,600

The number of all possible 13 card hands with no 9s is:

48!/13!(48-13)!  or 48!/13!*35! = 192,928,249,296

The difference is 635,013,559,600 – 192,928,249,296 = 442,085,310,304

So 442,085,310,304 out of 635,013,559,600 hands will have at least 1 nine.  The ratio of  442,085,310,304 to 635,013,559,600 is 0.696182472…  So roughly 70% of the time

27,630,331,894/39,688,347,475 is the best I could do for a whole number ratio.

## In Book 9 of the Odyssey, Ulysses saves himself and his men by blinding Polyphemus. Which lines reflect the Cyclops's disappointment at being defeated by guile and not by strength? Oh heavens! oh faith of ancient prophecies! This, Telemus Eurymedes foretold (The mighty seer who on these hills grew old; Skill'd the dark fates of mortals to declare, And learn'd in all wing'd omens of the air); Long since he menaced, such was Fate's command; And named Ulysses as the destined hand. I deem'd some godlike giant to behold, Or lofty hero, haughty, brave, and bold; Not this weak pigmy wretch, of mean design, Who, not by strength subdued me, but by wine. But come, accept our gifts, and join to pray Great Neptune's blessing on the watery way; For his I am, and I the lineage own; The immortal father no less boasts the son.

## A recipe for candy requires that the liquid ingredients be stirred constantly until the liquid reaches a temperature of 140°C. What type of spoon – wood or metal – will prevent burns to a person’s hand while stirring the hot liquid? Explain your choice.

Sample Response: A wooden spoon will prevent the person’s hand from burning because wood is an insulator. An insulator slows the transfer of thermal energy so that very little thermal energy from the hot liquid will transfer to the person’s hand.

Charlie had a waist circumference of 47 inches and a BMI of 29 this shows that she is overweight. BMI test level is high from normal ranges shows that she is at higher risk of disease. She should lose weight and concern to the doctor.

Further Explanation:

Body mass index (BMI) is a measured value derived from the height of a person and mass.

BMI indicates whether the person is healthy or overweight mainly used by physicians.

• Range of BMI in a normal person is 18.5-25

• Range of BMI in skinfold person is 25-30

• Range of BMI in underweight person is 15-18.5

The skinfold measurement test is used to determine a person’s body fat percentage and body composition.

In this test, we are the proportion of body fat by determining skinfold thickness at pinches specific part of the body. The estimate of these folds is determined the fat beneath the skin, also called subcutaneous adipose tissue.

The tester pinches the skin at the site and drags the fold of skin away from the muscle so only the fat tissue and skin are being held. The skinfold thickness is measured by skinfold calipers in millimeters.

Skin test includes the seven locations of the body:

1. Triceps

3. Suprailiac

4. Pectoral

5. Subscapular

6. Midaxilla

7. Abdomen

Charlie had a waist circumference of 47 inches and a BMI of 29 this shows that she is overweight. Females with waist size 47 inches have higher risk of having disease. BMI test level is high from normal ranges shows that she is at higher risk of disease.She should lose weight and concern to the doctor.

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!!

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 🙂

## Both petroleum and coal are made up of complex carbon-based molecules, and both originated with living creatures of some kind. Both are vital sources of energy for the modern world and both were formed by geologic processes over millions of years. However, petroleum was mainly formed from the remains of ocean-dwelling microorganisms. Coal, on the other hand, originated from decayed vegetation in ancient swamps and bogs. In any case, it took millions of years for both coal and oil to be produced. This is the case because it took that much time for overlying sediments to produce the unimaginable heat and pressure that would one day allow us to harvest these energy resources. This passage uses a combination of comparison and contrast and A. examples and explanations. B. cause and effect. C. chronological order. D. supporting details.

Duration, tempo, intensity, scope, setting, and chronology are 6 basic attributes of time.
Duration refers to how long something lasts; tempo refers to how many frames per second there are; intensity can either be high or low, depending on action; scope can be extensive or limited, also depending on how much action there is; setting is the place where the movie is happening; chronology refers to the sequence of time events.

## Through how many radians does the minute hand of a clock rotate in 25 minutes. Round answer to one decimal place.

Greatest common factor (or denominator) is 6,
least common multiple is 180

hmm
(note:
I spent like 30 mins trying to use a math only of finding the values
but it didn’t work so I did a  force brute and elimination method
explained below)

so
a and b must be multiples of 6
so list all the multiples of 6
wait
180=6*30
and 30’s factors are 1,2,3,5,6,10,15,30 so only list the numbers that
are the result of multiplying 6 and any of those numbers in that list
(so we can have the lcm of 180)
so
6*1=6
6*2=12
6*3=18
6*5=30
6*6=36
6*10=60
6*15=90
6*30=180
these are our possible candidates for the 2 numbers
now we must find the pair that has a GCD of only 6

doing the math is long and tedious so do it yourself (trial and error)

we see that our choices that fulfill both requirements (GCD of 6 and LCM of 180) are
90&12
60&18
30&36
sum them to find the least one

90+12=102
60+18=78
30+36=66

the least possible sum is 66

## 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. Which phrase signals a contrast between ideals about marriage?

Explanation:

From 1927, the Soviet Union introduced the concept of collective farms. The purpose of collectivization was to make individual lands and labor pass to collective farms, called kolkhozes. The workers received no wages but received part of what they produced on the farm, just to cover their needs and those of their families. Soviet leaders hoped that collectivization would significantly increase the food supply for the urban population, meaning that at that time it was believed that collective farms were the most efficient way to produce food.

This was not the case, however, and collective farms proved to be a major problem.

Collectivization created a profound trauma for the Russian peasantry. The forced confiscation of meat and bread led to riots. There were even peasants who chose to sacrifice their cattle rather than hand them over to collective farms. Sometimes the Soviet government used the army to suppress the revolts.

The ancient traditions of the Russian peasantry were eventually destroyed in the process. The peasants, who used to be interested in the fruits of their work, were losing interest in the kolkhozes. The early years of collectivization proved catastrophic. In 1932 and 1933 there was a great famine in the country that claimed the lives of eight million people, largely due to collectivization.

## BEST ANSWER GETS BRANLIEST AND FIVE STARS No roving foot shall crush thee here, No busy hand provoke a tear. What type of figurative language does Freneau employ in these lines from “The Wild Honeysuckle”? metaphor onomatopoeia paradox personification

The correct answer is A. Gerund; object of a preposition

Explanation:

In grammar, a gerund refers to a word formed by adding “-ing” to a verb, for example, the words playing, living and looking are considered as gerunds. Additionally, this gerunds can become part of phrases and create verbal gerund phrases by adding words that describe the gerund in a more detailed way. In the case of the section of the sentence that is on parenthesis or underlined “By looking through the telescope” the gerund is the word “looking” and the verbal gerund phrase is “looking through the telescope”. On the other hand, these type of phrases can work or function as adjectives, direct object, subject and others in sentences. In the case of the phrase “looking through the telescope” it functions mainly as an object of a preposition which means the phrase is preceded by the preposition which “by” and therefore the phrase becomes the object of it.

Thus, the type of verbal phrase, in this case, is gerund because the phrase contains a gerund “looking” that makes it a gerund phrase and its function is the object of a preposition as the phrase is introduced by the preposition “by” which means the phrase is the object of it.

The Civil Rights Act expanded the federal government’s power.

Further Explanation:

The Civil Rights Act was one of the most important civil rights legislation passed in the 1960’s. This law essentially outlawed discrimination in the work place and public places on the basis of race, sex, national origin, gender, etc. The passing of this law was thanks in large part to the Civil Rights movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s. The goal of this law was to gain legal and social equality, especially for African American citizens.

Besides protecting the rights of African American citizens and women, this law also expanded the power of the federal government. This is due to the fact that the federal government now has the power to enforce this law and penalize individuals/companies who violate this law. Ultimately, this would help more African American citizens to join the workforce without facing discrimination.

The answer to your question would be option B, the importance of social justice.

Explanation:

The topic of social justice can be found throughout the novel To Kill a Mockingbird. For example the author of the book describes several social justice issues that affect a number of people in the novel, such as racism.

Through the book, certain characters such as Scout, confront the difficult truths about racism, and at the end of a novel, when she mentions killing a mockingbird, it can be inferred that she refers to the theme of social justice as, through her journey, Scout has learnt that while courts are a source of justice, there are also other ways of achieving justice outside of it.

## In a recent experiment, anti-bacterial hand sanitizer was compared to hand soap. Students washed their hands using the sanitizer or soap and warm water for two minutes; then they dried their hands with a paper towel. The standard of comparison was rubbing hands vigorously for 2 minutes in warm water, without any soap or sanitizer, and then drying with a paper towel. The sanitizer advertisement claimed to kill bacteria more effectively than any soap. After washing, hands were swabbed and then the swab applied to a culture plate and incubated. Finally, the bacterial cultures were counted and recorded in the data table. Students concluded that the hand sanitizer was most effective in killing bacteria. How would you respond to the students’ conclusion?

Explanation: All these processes are the physical processes which happen during the phase change of matter.

1. Melting: In this process, water changes its state from solid to liquid. In solid, particles were orderly arranged but in liquid, the particles went apart from each other and orderly arrangement is lost.

2. Condensation: In this process, water changes its state from gas to liquid. In gaseous state, the particles were randomly arranged but in liquid, this random arrangement changes to some orderly arrangement.

3. Freezing: In this process, water changes its state from liquid to solid. In liquid state, the particles were less orderly arranged but in solid, this arrangement changes to more orderly arrangement.

4. Boiling: In this process, water changes its state from liquid to gas. In liquid state, the particles were orderly arranged but in gaseous state, this orderly arrangement changes to random arrangement.

Hence, in boiling process, the particles are least orderly arranged (particles have a lot of space between them) and this is the correct option.

## …indeed whilst on the one hand civil disobedience authorizes disobedience of unjust laws or immoral laws of a state which one seeks to overthrow, it requires meek and willing submission to the penalty of disobedience and therefore cheerful acceptance of the jail discipline and its attendant hardships… which individual is the author of this passage?

This excerpt is an example of a strong argument because it includes a clear thematic sentence and provides effective support.

A strong argument is an inductive argument in which the truth of the premises makes the conclusion likely to be true.

The Mary Kay Ash’s business model allowed to reduce the costs of sales by not using physical premises and improved the service by enabling product testing in explanatory sessions provided by the vendors, who have a high level of training, motivation and sense of belonging.

All this probably would have made it possible to beat the competition if the premise is true, however the reader does not have information to know if the conclusion is certainly fulfilled.

## Help with maths plz gimme a hand!!!

Let’s do a few sample questions:
Subtracting fractions #1, 9

If we need to add or subtract fractions, we need a common denominator (the lower number in a fraction).

So the 10 and 20 are different, so we can’t add them, we can make it the same by muiltying  by 2.

remember we need to times both numbers, upper and lower, by the same number.

2*2 = 4
10*2= 20
So now we did the math, we will have  and .

So we add them, only the upper number, do not touch the number on the bottom.

We can see that  can be divided by 5 nicely so we simplity the fraction

5÷5 = 1
20÷5 = 4
Now we down the math, the final answer is .

Okay, if we follow the same steps shown above, it will be very easy. But first, we need to get rid of the whole number wich is the 4 and 5.

4+5 = 9
Okay, now we have the whole number added up together, we can do the addition of the fractions.

We need to make the lower number the same, so we know 3*4 =12 right? Then we can time the second fraction by 3.

1*3 = 3
4* 3 = 12
So when we did the math, the fraction will be .

Now we can add them. Do not change the number at the bottom.

8+3 = 11
So the fraction will be . It can not be simplified so we leave it that way. DO NOT FORGET ABOUT THE WHOLE NUMBER.

9 + .
We put the whole number back in, so the final answer is .

Subtracting fractions #1:

We know we can’t subtract or add without the number at the bottom is different, so we need to make it the same.  And we know 4*7=28 so we can times the first fraction by 7.

3*7 = 21
4*7= 28
So now we have .

.
Now we subtract, but don’t touch the number on the bottom.

21- 11 = 10
So we have .  We can see the fraction can be divided by  2 nicely. So we divide both number, upper and lower, by 2.

10 ÷ 2= 5
28÷ 2= 14
So we have  as the final answer.

Subtracting fractions #9:

First we subtract the whole numbers, 5 and 2. Then we can deal with the fractions.

5-2= 3
Now we can subtract the fractions, and we need make the numbers on the bottom the same. We know 3*4 = 12, so we time the second fraction by 4.

2*4= 8
3*4= 12
So now we have . Then we can do the substraction.

10-8=2
So now we have .  And it can be simplified by 2 so we divide the fraction by 2.

2÷2  =1
12÷2= 6
So our final answer is .

I did the sample questions for you, and I hope you can try the rest.  Please remember a few highlights:

1. Need common denominator when ADDING or SUBSTRACTING
2. Do not change the denominator when you are ADDING or SUBTRACTING
3. Change the denominator when you are MUTIPLING OR DIVIDING
4. Always SIMPLIFY the fractions.
