Read the two passages. Passage One Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now! Passage Two It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound. Based on these two passages, which statement is true? Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own. Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not. Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence. Both authors are in support of the mission statement.

**Female cyclists were quickly becoming associated with efforts to win more rights for women.**

At the end of the passage, usually where a conclusion is stated, it says that the image of a female cyclist was becoming a symbol for women’s rights. The passage does not tell the reader anything about the percentage of women cyclists. While it does tell the reader about women being granted the right to voted, the connection between that and the bicycle is that it blurs the differences between the sexes. Both men and women were riding bicycles and they were both voting. There is also nothing in the passage about women cyclists as a group joining or not joining the women’s rights movement.

Dominick is planning to take a vacation to either Orlando or Tampa Bay. He wants to go to the city that is warmer, on average. The box plot below shows the temperatures from the previous year during the time that Dominick will take his vacation:Which city should Dominick visit, and why? He should visit Orlando. It has a greater IQR. He should visit Orlando. The median is higher and the range is smaller, so the temperature is higher on average. He should visit Tampa Bay. The highest temperature occurred there. He should visit Tampa Bay. The range is very large, so there is a better chance that any given day will be warm.

Which of these lists the energies of the sublevels, from highest to lowest? A. f > d > p > s B. d > p > s > f C. s > p > d > f D. d > f > s > p

**Answer:**

**High School P has the most consistent attendance among its students. **

**School N should be awarded for the highest average attendance.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Consider the provided information.

Part A: If the school district wants to award the school that has the most consistent attendance among its students, which high school should it choose and why? Justify your answer mathematically.

**Standard deviation (σ) is a measure of how a data set is spread out.**

**If the standard deviation is low, this implies that the information tends to be near to the set mean, whereas a high standard deviation implies that the information points are spread across a wider spectrum of values.**

Therefore, for more consistency we need to look for the low standard deviation.

From the provided table we can see that the school P has low standard deviation (σ) i.e 31.5

**Hence, High School P has the most consistent attendance among its students.**

Part B: If the school district wants to award the school with the highest average attendance, which school should it choose and why? Justify your answer mathematically.

**The formula for mean is:**

Mean is the same as average.

The sum of mean or average will be larger if each students contributes more attendance.

For highest average attendance the school with higher mean should be awarded.

**Hence, School N should be awarded for the highest average attendance.**

Activation energy is the difference in the energy level of the reactants and the peak in the potential energy diagram (the energy of the transition state).

For an endothermic reaction, the products will be closer in energy to the transition state than what the reactans will be; so, the activation energy of the reversed reaction is lower than the activation energy of the forward reaction.

Activation energy of reverse and forward reactions is related by:

Activation energy of reverse rxn = Activation energy of forward rxn – ΔH rxn

=> Activiation energy of reverse rxn = 102 kJ/mol – 55 kJ/mol = 47 kJ/mol

**Answer: 47 kJ/mol**

R=R₀(1+α(T-T₀)), where R₀ is the resistance at T₀=20°C, T is the temperature for which we want to calculate the resistance and α is the temperature coefficient for resistance.

The resistance of the copper wire increases by 18% or by 0.18, so the new value for the resistance is R=1.18*R₀.

T₀=20°C

=0.0068

R=1.18*R₀

Now we need to input that into the equation for resistance change and solve for temperature T.

1.18R₀=R₀(1+α(T-20)), R₀ cancels out,

1.18=1+α(T-20),

1.18-1=α(T-20), we divide by α,

0.18/α=T-20, we put 20 on the left side,

26.47+20=T

T=46.47°C

So the temperature on which the resistance of copper wire will increase by 18% is T=46.47°C.

Jessie received the following scores on her math tests this year. (45, 65, 70, 80, 85, 100) Suppose the teacher removes the lowest and highest scores. (65, 70, 80, 85) What are the interquartile ranges of Jessie’s original scores and her new scores?

The double-slit experiment is a famous tool to illustrate concepts within quantum mechanics. In particular it demonstrates the concept of wave-particle duality. Use of a light wave demonstrates diffraction and interference, which is a typical wave behaviour. Surprisingly, use of a beam of electrons also yields an interference pattern, showing electrons can behave like waves.

**Explanation:**

There would be a optical phenomenon pattern almost like, however totally different from, that exploitation light-weight.Interference and optical phenomenon are the phenomena that distinguish waves from particles: waves interfere and split, particles don’t.

Light bends around obstacles like waves do, and it’s this bending that causes the one slit optical phenomenon pattern.

*The list that correctly orders the events in the rise and fall of Apartheid in South Africa is.
*

**1.- The registration population act was signed.
**

**2.- The Soweto Uprising sparked more protest.
**

**3.- Frederik W. de Klerk brought about reforms.
**

**4.- Nelson Mandela became the nation’s president.
**

The Population Registration Act in South Africa, of 1950, considered South Africans citizens as Whites, Blacks, and Mixed race. The Apartheid was a policy of the government of South Africa that favored racial segregation, benefiting the minority of white people and limiting the rights of Black Africans.

The Apartheid ended when a new Constitution that supported Black people was established in 1993. The elections in 1994 were won by Nelson Mandela, who was the candidate of the African National Congress Party.

The answer to this question is that the nurse should

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated

from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit

(TE).

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = $1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = $47

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = $234,948 / 27,970 units

manufactured = $8.4

Direct labor per unit = $131,459 / 27,970 units

manufactured = $4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = $240,542 / 27,970

units manufactured = $8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = $113,220 / 22,200

units sold = $5.1

TE = $26.8

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = $47 – $26.8

**CM = $20.2 per unit**

The sum of mean or average will be larger if each students contributes more attendance.

For highest average attendance the school with higher mean should be awarded.

**Hence, School N should be awarded for the highest average attendance.**

The correct answer is D. The North American Free Trade Agreement or NAFTA is signed in 1994. by Canada, Mexico, and the United States, making a trilateral trade bloc in North America. It is going to replaced by the 2018 United States, Mexico, Canada Agreement. Since it is a trade agreement, it is supposed to increase trade between these countries which will result in the increased production. Donald Trump said that he was pulling out of NAFTA and that would have a range of consequences for the U.S. including reduced access to the export markets, reduced economic growth, and increased prices for gasoline, cars, fruits, and vegetables.

9) *An important effect of northern renaissance writers writing in vernacular IS B.* **Their works could be read in towns and cities by members of the new middle class.** Because the scholars in the monasteries and the monarchs and nobles already read all the important works in the Latin language, because they knew Latin. And the distributed by merchants to readers outside Europe was afterwards with the creation of the printing press and the discovery of America. But at that time of the Renaissance the Renaissance writers translated the most important works into the vernacular language that is the language spoken by the common people of each town, it was really very important because it allowed the people and ordinary people to access books and documents to which until then only the nobles and monks acceded to know the Latin or the Greek language.

10. *The correct answer is B. ***Sir Thomas More**

He is the northern European humanist, who wrote a book that imagine a peaceful Society without private property. Utopia is the name of Sir Tomas Moro´s book. Book of the ideal state of a republic on the new island of Utopia is a book written by Thomas Moro and published in 1516. Thomas Moro imagines a fictional community based on the philosophical and political ideals of the classical world and Christianity. Utopia is a peaceful community, which establishes the common property of goods, in contrast to the system of private property and the conflictive relationship between contemporary European societies to Moro.

*In question 11 the correct answer is A.* **The protestant reformation signify a response to the Corruption in the church. **

One of the main reasons that led to the “Protestant Reformation” was the disagreement with certain practices that the high clergy of the Church was doing at that time.

The most important complaint made by Luther was that the clergy issued indulgences or forgiveness of sins in exchange for large sums of money to finance the construction of the Basilica of St. Peter and maintain ways of life of great luxury and privileges by the high clergy.

In question 12 the correct answer is D.**Ulrich zwingli
**

Ulrich Zwingli is considered the creator of the Reformed Church of Switzerland. In 1525 he published his “Confession of Faith” where he expounded a theology largely coincident with Luther but added more radical changes in some doctrinal or practical aspects.

Among the central ideas he contributed were:

- the Eucharist is administered under the two species and the mass is suppressed,

- the images of the churches are eliminated,

- the suppression of priestly celibacy is decreed,

- a charity for the poor is established and regulated, financed with the funds obtained from the secularization of ecclesiastical property.

In question 13 the correct answer is D. **Belief in predestination**

Martin Luther and John Calvin differ in that the latter raised the belief that although the salvation of the soul is by faith, God has predetermined who are those who will achieve salvation. Calvin maintained that those who will be saved will make the decision of faith at the propitious moment of their own free will, but God knows everything that will happen beforehand. Luther did not raise this detail.

*In question 14 the correct answer is C.* **Faith alone
**

Martin Luther gave great importance to the knowledge of the Bible and the spiritual life but maintained that to achieve the salvation of the soul, only faith is enough.

**Answer:**

the acceleration at any instant

**Explanation:**

1). the displacement during some time interval

We can determine the displacement of the object from the graph because we know that displacement is defined as the change in position of the object and from graph change in position can be obtained easily

2). the speed at any instant

3). the velocity at any instant

speed at any instant of time and velocity at any instant of time must be same in the magnitude and we can determine it by the slope of the graph

As we know that instantaneous velocity is defined as

so slope of the graph at any instant will give an idea about instantaneous speed of velocity

4). the average velocity during some time interval

To find average velocity we need the displacement of object at a given interval of time and ratio of this displacement and time interval is known as average velocity

So we can find it from graph

5). the acceleration at any instant

To find the instantaneous acceleration we need to find

this is not possible to find from x-t graph because in order to find this slope we need to find velocity time graph.

Answer: **a. separation of powers**

Further detail/explanation:

The “Separation of Powers” principle was an idea embedded into the plans for American government by our founding fathers, based on their reading of Enlightenment political theory. The terminology “separation of powers” was introduced by Charles-Louis de Secondat, the Baron of Montesquieu. (Usually he’s referred to as just “Montesquieu.”) He wrote an important work of political theory called *The Spirit of the Laws*, published in 1748.

Within his treatment of how governments will function best, Montesquieu argued that executive, legislative, and judicial functions of government ought to be divided between parts of the government, so that no one person or division of the government can infringe on the overall rights of others in the government or of the members of the society overall.
