## Tina can paint a room 1.5 times faster than Joey can. If they work together, they can paint a room in 6 hours. How long would it take the slower person working alone to paint the room?

To answer this problem, let us define that:

x = amount of time Joey can paint a room in hours

1.5 x = amount of time Tina can paint a room in hours

Each person can complete 1 job in the specified amount of
time.

1 job / x hours = rate of Joey

1job / 1.5 x hours = rate of Tina

By adding the two, they can paint the room (1 job) in 6
hours. Therefore:

(1 / x) + (1 / 1.5 x) = 1 / 6

Multiplying whole equation with 6 (x) (1.5 x):

6 (1.5 x) + 6 x = x (1.5 x)

9 x + 6 x = 1.5 x^2

Dividing both sides with x:

15 = 1.5 x

x = 10 hours

Therefore the time it will take Tina, the slower person, is
1.5x = 15 hours

## The fossil record clearly shows that ________. the fossil record clearly shows that ________. large complex organisms evolved long before simple. nearly all species that have existed in the past still exist today. all species evolve from pre-existing species. new species appear suddenly and fully differentiated, without an ancestral species. several different species can hybridize to produce a single new species

I think the answer is all species evolve from pre-existing species. This was based on Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution which he learned during his expeditions.He identified that some fossils have similarities with other existing animals, in which he believed were a part of adaptation in order to survive.

## Read the excerpts from different sections “The Scarlet Ibis.” Although Doodle learned to crawl, he showed no signs of walking, but he wasn’t idle. He talked so much that we all quit listening to what he said. It was about this time that Daddy built him a go-cart and I had to pull him around. At first I just paraded him up and down the piazza, but then he started crying to be taken out into the yard and it ended up by my having to lug him wherever I went. If I so much as picked up my cap, he’d start crying to go with me and Mama would call from wherever she was, “Take Doodle with you.” *** He’d nod his head, and I’d say, “Well, if you don’t keep trying, you’ll never learn.” Then I’d paint for him a picture of us as old men, white-haired, him with a long white beard and me still pulling him around in the go-cart. This never failed to make him try again. Based on these excerpts, what best describes the symbol of the go-cart within the story? It changes from a symbol of youth to a symbol of old age. It changes from a symbol of success to a symbol of failure. It changes from a symbol of hope to a symbol of desperation. It changes from a symbol of freedom to a symbol of captivity.

## Read the following excerpt from Leslie Marmon Silko’s story “The Man to Send Rain Clouds.” They turned off the highway onto the sandy pueblo road. Not long after they passed the store and post office they saw Father Paul’s car coming toward them. When he recognized their faces he slowed his car and waved for them to stop. The young priest rolled down the car window. “Did you find old Teofilo?” he asked loudly. Leon stopped the truck. “Good morning, Father. We were just out to the sheep camp. Everything is O.K. now.” “Thank God for that. Teofilo is a very old man. You really shouldn’t allow him to stay at the sheep camp alone.” “No, he won’t do that any more now.” What does this dialogue reveal about the priest’s standing within the community? He is a trusted leader of the tribe. He is considered to be an outsider. He is a spiritual guide to the people. He is disliked by most of the people.

Answer: The right answer is the B: He is considered to be an outsider.

Explanation: Leon and his brother-in-law, Ken, had found Teofilo’s corpse under a tree. However, when Father Paul, a Franciscan priest, asked them if they had found him, Leon did not mention that Teofilo had died. He did not openly lie to the priest, but he avoided mentioning Teofilo’s death to him. This shows that Father Paul was not considered part of the tribe, but an outsider that was trying to “impose” his faith and his religious practices on a community that already had its own.

The Variation Principle recommends that minor changes in preparing regimens yield more steady gains in game execution. Preparing programs for all intents and purposes each game incorporate varieties in force, term, volume, and other vital parts of training.

The most outstanding technique for practice variability concerns preparing in stages. Commonly, a yearly games preparing program incorporates periods of preparing for molding, concentrated game particular work, in-season support, and an off-season regimen. Preparing in stages, or periods, is called periodization.

## You invest \$6000 into an account paying 3.75% annual interest compounded bimonthly(every 2 months), and you want to have \$10,000 saved for your first year of college. How long will it take for your investment to grow that large? Round your answer to the nearest whole number.

The formula is
A=p (1+r/k)^kt

A future value 10000
P present value 6000
R interest rate 0.0375
K compounded every two months 6
T time?

We need to solve for t
T= [log (A/p)÷log (1+r/k)]÷k
T=(log(10,000÷6,000)÷log(1+0.0375÷6))÷6
T=13.7 years
T=14 years

## The relationship between you shoe size and the length of you foot L ( in inches) is given by S = 3L – 22 for men and S = 3L – 21 for women. How long is your foot when your shoe size is the same as the length of your foot and you are the following gender> a man : a woman:

For the shoe size be equal to the length of the foot, this means that L must be equal to S. Now, since we have different equations depending on your gender, we first check the conditions for man.

Since S = 3L – 22 for men, for a person to have a foot length equal to his shoe size, we equate L to S as shown below.

L = S
L = 3L – 22
2L = 22
L = 11

Thus, we can see that men with 11-inch foot would have the same shoe size number. We can apply similar approach to find the length of a woman’s foot that satisfies our conditions as shown.

L = S
L = 3L – 21
2L = 21
L = 10.5

Hence, a woman with a 10.5-inch foot have 10.5 for a shoe size as well.

man: 11 inches
woman: 10.5 inches

## 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.
