A center lane with solid and broken yellow lines that is used by vehicles making left turns in both directions is called a:


Left turn lane

Left turn lanes are used when vehicles are turning left. It is mandatory for a vehicle to come inside the lane completely and then wait for the traffic to clear before making the turn. The vehicle is not allowed to be half inside the lane and half outside, blocking the traffic and producing dangerous driving conditions.

Describe how you would determine whether two lines are parallel by looking at the equations of the lines in standard form.


Answer:

By comparing the slopes of both lines.

Step-by-step explanation:

The general form of a straight line is y = mx + c where m is the slope of the line and c is the y-intercept of the line.

For e.g. Consider, the lines y = 2x – 3 and y = 2x – 7.

Now, by comparing these lines with the general form, we get that both of them have slope 2.

Also, by the graph below it can be seen that they both are parallel.

So, it is clear that ‘The slopes of two parallel lines are same’.

Hence, by looking at the standard form of the equation and comparing the slopes, we can determine whether the lines are parallel or not.

Which lines by Emily Dickinson are an example of metaphor? A. We outgrow love like other things And put it in the drawer, B. Till it an antique fashion shows Like costumes grandsires wore. C. Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, D. I’ve heard it in the chillest land, And on the strangest sea;


The line by Emily Dickinson that are an example of metaphor is option C.

Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul,

A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes an object or action in a way that isn’t literally true, but helps explain an idea or make a comparison. A metaphor states that one thing is another thing. The different between the metaphor and the similes, is that the latter employs words such as “like” and “as” in order to create a comparison.

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.

Eric states that the slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals (i.e. that the slope of one is equal to the negative of the reciprocal of the other), and Aviva states that the product of the slopes of perpendicular lines is −1. Who is correct? Why? Explain your reasoning with an example. If one of the lines is vertical and the other one is horizontal, how would your answer change?


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:50 AM

Eric’s statement is correct that the slopes of the perpendicular lines are opposites reciprocal with each other compared to Aviva’s. Aviva’s statement is correct but is not usually the case. An example is that when you are given these functions such as y = -2x + 3 and y = 1/2x + 4. The coefficients of the x variable are 2 and negative 1/2. The slopes must be in opposite signs so that the two functions will intersect at a common point and will form a ninety degree angle. This is the very basis of a perpendicular line because if both lines have the same slopes, then both lines are just parallel with each other, they cannot intersect.

If an angle formed by perpendicular lines has a ray in its interior coming from the vertex of the right angle, what do we call the relationship of the two angles? Select one: a. Right angles b. Corresponding angles c. Alternate interior angles d. Complementary angles


Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 04:13 AM

The ray divides one of the right angles into two smaller angles, but we are not told whether or not the smaller angles are equal or unequal.  These two angles are complementary angles.  Why? Because their sum is 90 degrees (definition of complementary angles).

Two lines are parallel. The equation of the first line is y = –3x + 5. Which of the following cannot be the equation of the second line?


It sounds like you were given a list of choices. That list is missing. Without the list, it’s impossible to say which is the answer; however, I can help you narrow things down.

The slope of y = -3x+5 is -3. It’s the value just to the left of the x. Any line parallel to this line will also have a slope of -3. Parallel lines have equal slopes.

So I’m assuming your list of choices have various equations with slopes of -3. The only oddball will have some other slope, and that will be the answer. If it has some other slope, then the line won’t be parallel to y = -3x+5 and will cross that line somewhere. 

———————————

Edit: Thank you for posting those choices

The answer is choice B since it’s the only graph that has a slope of something other than -3. In this case, the graph B has a slope of 1/3. You get this by solving each equation for y. So x-3y = -3 would turn into y = (1/3)x + 1

His was the moment Zachary had been waiting for. He had rehearsed his lines for weeks, silently in his head as he biked to school, out loud in the mirror when he was home alone, and, to get used to an audience, in front of his sister’s stuffed animals and a slightly confused dog. Zachary had not prepared well for last year’s audition, and at the last minute had chosen not to go—too embarrassed—or too scared—he did not know which. Now, as he stood backstage, he thought about last year. He had been so disappointed in himself as he walked home alone, snuck to his room, and flopped sadly into his bed. “Next year will be different,” he vowed then and there. “I will be better prepared.” And he was. He just hoped it was enough. His throat was dry, his palms were sweaty, his heart was pounding, but he was ready to face the spotlight. A hushed silence fell across the auditorium as the drama teacher called his name. Zachary Hamilton. Based on the passage, how do you think Zachary will deal with the conflict in the remainder of the story?


Answer:

The literary elements suggest that Zachary learned from last year and will have more success this time.

Explanation:

this time Zachary learned to come prepared so he could get the part that he wanted so you should always practice for what you want

Which lines in this excerpt from act I of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet reveal that Romeo was avoiding Benvolio? BENVOLIO: Madam, an hour before the worshipped sun Peered forth the golden window of the east, A troubled mind drove me to walk abroad, Where, underneath the grove of sycamore That westward rooteth from this city side, So early walking did I see your son. Towards him I made, but he was ‘ware of me And stole into the covert of the wood. I, measuring his affections by my own, Which then most sought where most might not be found, Being one too many by my weary self, Pursued my humor not pursuing his, And gladly shunned who gladly fled from me.

What was the purpose of Hoover’s Reconstruction Finance Corporation? a)to raise taxes on foreign imports b)to open soup kitchens and bread lines c)to provide loans and resources to businesses d)to give direct aid to Americans


The correct answer is – alms.

The alms is the pillar that is referring to giving to the poor and needy. It is practiced by lots of Muslims, and it is considered as an act of solidarity towards the followers of the faith that are in dire need of it. This includes giving money, food, and clothing, though occasionally it may even include shelter. It can be performed in person when some people go to the people that they want to give something as aid, to invite some person in need or that is poor at their homes, or it goes as donations in the mosques which afterwards take the responsibility to deliver them to the poor and in need.

Given: Two concentric circles with center point P. How many tangent lines can be drawn that both circles share?


The basis to respond this question are:

1) Perpedicular lines form a 90° angle between them.

2) The product of the slopes of two any perpendicular lines is – 1.

So, from that basic knowledge you can analyze each option:

a.Lines s and t have slopes that are opposite reciprocals.

TRUE. Tha comes the number 2 basic condition for the perpendicular lines.

slope_1 * slope_2 = – 1 => slope_1 = – 1 / slope_2, which is what opposite reciprocals means.

b.Lines s and t have the same slope.

FALSE. We have already stated the the slopes are opposite reciprocals.

c.The product of the slopes of s and t is equal to -1

TRUE: that is one of the basic statements that you need to know and handle.

d.The lines have the same steepness.

FALSE: the slope is a measure of steepness, so they have different steepness.

e.The lines have different y intercepts.

FALSE: the y intercepts may be equal or different. For example y = x + 2 and y = -x + 2 are perpendicular and both have the same y intercept, 2.

f.The lines never intersect.

FALSE: perpendicular lines always intersept (in a 90° angle).

g.The intersection of s and t forms right angle.

TRUE: right angle = 90°.

h.If the slope of s is 6, the slope of t is -6

FALSE. – 6 is not the opposite reciprocal of 6. The opposite reciprocal of 6 is – 1/6.

So, the right choices are a, c and g.
