## Bill bought a new cellular phone. His monthly bill will be \$34.99 each month which includes 100 minutes of use. Additional minutes will cost \$0.23 per minute. Write an equation that represents the cost of the bill C in terms of m, which is the number of minutes used ABOVE the 100 that are included in the base price. a. C = 34.99(m – 100) + 0.23 c. C = 0.23m b. C = 0.23m + 34.99 d. C = 0.23(m – 100) + 34.99

d. C = 0.23(m – 100) + 34.99

Step-by-step explanation:

Let C = X + Y, where

C = Cost of the bill in terms of m

X = First term of the equation

Y = Second term of the equation

X = add additional minutes to \$ 0.23 minus the 100 minutes of use allocated.

X = 0.23 (m – 100)

Y = Base price monthly will be \$ 34.99

Y = 34.99

C = X + Y

C = 0.23 (m – 100) + 34.99

Note: The only possible answer is 0.23 (m – 100) + 34.99, but we must assume that “m” is greater than or equal to 100, that is, Bill consumes at least his 100 minutes assigned by the base price.

Hope this helps!

## Read the summary of “The Beginnings of the Maasai.” In “The Beginnings of the Maasai,” the daughter of the Maasai explains the relationship between the Maasai and their sky god Enkai. She explains how a volcanic eruption sent Enkai and the cattle into the sky. In order to save the cattle, Enkai created a giant tree that allowed them to walk back to earth. Then, Enkai entrusted Neiterkob, the narrator’s father, and his tribe to care for the cattle. As a result, the cattle are sacred to the Maasai, and the Maasai maintain a close connection with Enkai. Is this an effective summary of the story? Yes, because it includes key ideas from the beginning, middle, and end, and it explains the conflict and the resolution. Yes, because it focuses on the details from the beginning, the obstacles from the middle, and the resolution from the end. No, because it is uses too many specific names from the beginning, middle, and end, and it has a vague resolution. No, because it leaves out details from the beginning, the obstacles from the middle, and the resolution from the end.

## Our water footprint includes the volume of freshwater we use ________ . a. directly b. for irrigation c. indirectly d. both directly and indirectly e. in households

Water footprint is the measurement of the amount of fresh water utilized in the production or supply of the goods and services used by a particular person or group. The water footprint tells us how much water is used in a single process (for example: production of one T-Shirt, but it is also an indicator for the amount of water consumed by a particular country or nation.
So, our water footprint includes the volume of freshwater we use both directly and indirectly.

Industrialization led to rising imperialism because
1) show of power: As one makes new technology, they would either want to test it out or show the other nations that what they produce is ground-breaking and the best. Usually if it is military technology, you would want to test it out, and with the use of “show of force”, can have people groups submit to your country.
2) Better technology: As technology advances, it usually makes something easier. In the case of imperialism, better military advances meant that they could (once again) have other people submit to you
3) Better transportation: This meant that you could take multiple countries at once, and can prove that you’re country is great by having supplies shipped over long distances to keep your troops up. If in need of more troops, you could send more.

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.

## Studies continue to prove that if a girl stays in school she will strengthen her family, community, and nation. A long list of benefits of educating a girl in a developing country compiled by the World Health Organization includes later marriages, smaller families, better hygiene, greatly increased likelihood that further children will receive education, and my favorite – greater confidence. A bicycle is a simple, sustainable tool that eases long travel distances and encourages girls to stay in school. —Foreword to Wheels of Change, Leah Missbach Day What is the central idea of this passage from the foreword?

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 🙂

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.

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

When charge particles are placed near to each other then the two charges will attract or repel each other by electrostatic force given by

while if charge particles are moving with respect to each other then in that case the magnetic field produces by the two moving charges will exert force on the two charges.

This magnetic force on moving charge is given as

now here we can say that both electrostatic force and magnetic force are related to charge particles so these two forces are similar to each other

D. Magnetic and electrical forces are similar because they are both related to the interactions between charged particles.

## Write an equation of the direct variation that includes the point (-10,-17)

B) x = 12

Explanation:

Problem number 26 states “Find a quantity such that when it is added to ¼ of itself the result is 15.

Algebraically, this is represented as

x + ¼x = 15

Adding these together, we would have 1 ¼x = 15.

To write this as an improper fraction, we remember that 1 = 4/4; this gives us

4/4x + ¼x = 15

5/4x = 15

Divide both sides by 5/4:

(5/4x)÷(5/4) = 15÷(5/4)

x = 15÷5/4 = (15/1)÷(5/4)

To divide fractions, we flip the second one and multiply:

x = (15/1)×(4/5)

Multiplying fractions means we multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators:

x = (15×4)/(1×5) = 60/5 = 12

Okay, I’ll try to help best I can.

For the first question, it’s basically asking what you did to ensure that you have appealed to your designated audience, or the demographic that you are trying to attract to your product/whatever you’re advertising. It also asks about your purpose, and since I don’t know your purpose for making your promo, you’ll have to answer this yourself.

For the second question, you’ll have to add all of the media types that you used to create your promo. Did you write your promo down on paper, then take a picture of it? Did you use images, and if you did, were these images created by you using paper and pencil/a digital program or found on a website? What did you use to convey your message, television? Social media? A physical medium, like a billboard or flyer? Did you use video or sound recording in addition to any of the things I stated?

For the third question, you’ll have to inquire with your test buddy.

For the final question, you’ll have to describe what you did to the response your test buddy gave you. Did you change anything? Did you take any action outside of changing your work, preferably non-violent? (That was a joke, I think they’re just asking what you did related to your promo).

I hope this helped you out! Feel free to ask me any additional questions if you have any. 🙂
