## Read the excerpt from “mother tongue.” lately, ive been giving more thought to the kind of english my mother speaks. like others, i have described it to people as broken or fractured english. but i wince when i say that. it has always bothered me that i can think of no other way to describe it other than broken, as if it were damaged and needed to be fixed, as if it lacked a certain wholeness and soundness. what best supports the inference that tan believes nonstandard english is no less valid than standard english? tan spends a lot of time thinking about her mothers fractured english. tan has trouble thinking of descriptive words when she is writing. tans american education makes it difficult for her to understand her mother. tan winces when she describes her mothers english as broken.

The following option best supports the inference that tan believes nonstandard English is no less valid than standard English :

Tan winces when she describes her mothers English as broken.

Tan winces because she considers her mother’s nonstandard English as her mother tongue. It is perfectly clear and natural to her. It is full of vivid descriptions, clear observations and imagery. Nonstandard English is close to her heart because it is the language that helped her to make sense of the world.

## Taking impulsive action is the result of making decisions that require a lot through.

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

## A company uses two vans to transport workers from a free parking lot to the workplace between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. One van has 5 more seats than the other. The smaller van makes 2 trips every morning while tye larger one makes only one trip the 2 vans can only transport 71 people, maximum. let x be the seats in the small van and y the seats in the large van.how many seats does the larger on have?

The triangle ABC is similar to triangle LMP. The order here is very important. The letters correspond to one another
A corresponds to L (first letters of each sequence)
B corresponds to M (second letters of each sequence)
C corresponds to P (third letters of each sequence)

In a similar fashion, the segments also correspond to one another.
AB corresponds to LM (first two letters of each sequence)
AC corresponds to LP (first and last letters of each sequence)
BC corresponds to MP (last two letters of each sequence)

————————————

AB corresponds to LM. AB is 4 units long. LM is 2 units long. So AB is twice as long as LM. This ratio (of 2:1) will be applied to every paired corresponding value.

Also, the right angle is at angle M for triangle LMP. The right angle will be at angle B for triangle ABC (since B corresponds to M). The answer will have an x coordinate of 7. So the answer is either choice B or choice C.

If we move 4 units down from point B, we land on (7,-10). That isn’t listed as an answer choice. Let’s try moving 4 units up from point B. We land on (7,-2). This is an answer choice

So the final answer is choice C) (7,-2)

Explanation:  Animals, however well preserved and bred in conditions that are not in nature, that is, not in their natural habitat, animals still retain the animal instinct. Thus, young animals in the wild can be met daily, except for members of their species, and members of all other species, including predators, as well as humans. This means that in the natural environment, young animals can find themselves in a variety of dangers on a daily basis, but not only that. In this way young animals develop their ability to survive, escape from predators, manage, and develop their hunting skills, etc. All this is essential for socialization because according to all these developed skills and abilities their socialization depends. To deny any of the conditions prevailing in the wild means to deny the development of any skill or instinct, to deny proper socialization.

## Areas near oceans or large lakes tend to have more moderate climates than do areas far from large bodies of water. Which of these statements best explains this observation? Hydrogen and oxygen atoms share electrons in a water molecule. Lakes and oceans contain dissolved solids. Water has a very high specific heat. Water produces buoyant forces. Question 2(Multiple Choice Worth 2 points) A scientist discovers a new substance. The molecules of the substance form hydrogen bonds with each other. When the molecules lose a lot of energy, the hydrogen bonds hold them relatively far apart. Based on this information, what can the scientist infer about the substance? It expands when it freezes. It is highly colored. It exists only as a gas. It does not dissolve ionic compounds. Question 3(Multiple Choice Worth 2 points) Which of the following properties of water is due primarily to the uneven distribution of charge between the hydrogen and oxygen atoms? its color its taste its ability to dissolve ionic substances its ability to produce buoyant forces Question 4(Multiple Choice Worth 2 points) A drop of water placed on a smooth, dry surface will form a dome-shaped droplet instead of flowing outward in different directions. Which of these best explains this observation? The bonds between hydrogen and oxygen atoms are very strong. The electrons in the atoms attract the electrons in the other atoms. Water molecules at the surface experience fewer hydrogen bonds than water molecules within the liquid. Water molecules near the surface produce more buoyant force than water molecules within the liquid.

The gravitational force Fg between two objects is given by the equation:

Fg=(G*m₁*m₂)/r₂, where G=6.67*10^-11 m³ kg⁻¹ s⁻² is the gravitational constant, m₁ and m₂ are the masses of the two bodies and r is the distance between those bodies.

Due to the gravitational attraction the pencil and the eraser will attract if we there is no friction on the surface.

m₁=10 g=0.01 kg is the mass of the pencil
m₂=20 g=0.02 kg is the mass of the eraser
r=2.5 cm = 0.025 m

First we calculate the Fg:

Fg={(6.67*10^-11)*0.01*0.02}/(0.025²)=2.1344*10^-11 N

To get the velocity v of the pencil:

v²=2as, where a is the acceleration of the pencil and s is the path. In our case s=r so we can write:

v²=2ar

a=Fg/m₁= 2.133*10^-9 m/s²

v²=2*(2.133*10^-9)*0.025=1.0665*10^-10

v=√(1.0665*10^-10)=1.0327*10^-5 m/s

We have the velocity and the acceleration, so we can calculate the time t with the equation:

t=v/a=(1.0327*10^-5)/(2.133*10^-9)=4841.6 s

1 hour has 3600 s so when we divide time t in seconds by 3600 we get time T in hours:

T=t/3600=4841.6/3600=1.3449 h.

So the time for the pencil and eraser to touch is T=1.3449 hours.

Also time T can be expressed like T= 1h and 20 mins and 41.64 s

## Documents with a lot of text and not much white space

Answer: In the “The Way to Wealth by Bejamin Franklin, the author uses many narrative voices to stress the importance of frugality. The essay begins as Poor Richard addresses his audience, “Courteous Reader,” and admits that few “other learned authors” have quoted him, despite his being “an eminent author of almanacs annually now a full quarter of a century” . Poor Richard does take solace in the fact that “ authority” exists. At this point in the essay, Poor Richard makes a confession: “I have sometimes quoted myself with great gravity”.

Upon observing a crowd waiting for “a vendue of merchant goods” to open for business, Poor Richard overhears the people “conversing on the badness of the times”. One person in the crowd calls out to another, “a plain clean old man, with white locks” asks him of his opinion of the times and of the “heavy taxes quite ruin the country”. The man, Father Abraham, is happy to oblige, and he gives a short speech to the crowd, while Poor Richard listens and looks on.

Father Abraham begins his speech by acknowledging that the taxes are “indeed very heavy,” but much worse than the taxes imposed by the government are the taxes of “our idleness , our folly, and from these taxes the commissioners cannot ease or deliver us by allowing an abatement”. He quotes Poor Richard here to offer the crowd advice about what to do about this problem: “God helps them that help themselves”.

As you can see, there are many narrative voices and they are important in the sense that they encourage the idea of working hard and being thrifty with the money we have.

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.

## If you become skillful at basketball because your friends encourage you to play and you have practiced a lot, your behavior is influenced primarily by __________. if you are good at basketball mainly because you are very tall, as have been all of the members of your family for generations, your behavior is influenced primarily by __________.

The answer is C. In order to carefully control conditions and confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis about the causes of behavior, one must perform an experiment.

Explanation:

Experimental research allows the researcher to control all the variables in order to create the conditions that can confirm or disconfirm a hypothesis. This method aimes to establish a relation of causality between two variables, which means that one variable is generated and determined by the other; this is posible because all of the other variables that can influence it have been controlled.

When a researcher conducts a survey or engages in naturalistic observation, he can’t control the variables, therefore, he can only establish a correlation between two variables, but not of causality.

## And whatever he touched in that rich fortress of his soul sprang into golden life: as the years passed, the fruit trees—the peach, the plum, the cherry, the apple—grew great and bent beneath their clusters. His grape vines thickened into brawny ropes of brown and coiled down the high wire fences of his lot, and hung in a dense fabric, upon his trellises, roping his domain twice around. They climbed the porch end of the house and framed the upper windows in thick bowers. And the flowers grew in rioting glory in his yard—the velvet-leaved nasturtium, slashed with a hundred tawny dyes, the rose, the snowball, the redcupped tulip, and the lily. The author uses sensory details in this excerpt to create images of excess and riches, to suggest Gant’s interest in materialism. shades and barriers, to suggest Gant’s need for privacy. colorful sceneries, to suggest Gant’s artistic aptitude. bountiful harvests, to suggest Gant’s agricultural success.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

## Bonnie and clyde have decided to purchase a new entertainment center. as this will be a major financial investment, they spend a lot of time researching their options. helen, a psychology student, advises them to distract themselves with an alternate activity before they come to any purchase decisions. is this a good advice?

Some of them you mentioned already :

race – the racial make up of the society (it can be informative if the race is coorelated for example with income)

gender – the gender make up of a society, which is usually 50% male and 50% female, but differences from that can cause social problems

class- for example whether the society is more uniform, or whether huge differences between classes exist

other aspects can include

age- can tell us how many people are in a working age

education and literacy – it can help us predict the wealth of the country
