## Triangle PQR is transformed to similar triangle P’Q’R’. A coordinate grid is shown from negative 10 to 0 to positive 10 on both x- and y-axes at increments of 1. A triangle PQR has P at ordered pair 4, 4, Q at ordered pair 8, 4, R at ordered pair 4 and 8. A polygon P prime Q prime R prime has P prime at ordered pair 1,1, Q prime at ordered pair 2,1, R prime at ordered pair 1, 2. What is the scale factor of dilation?

The length of the legs, PQ and PR are 4 units.
The lengths of the legs, P’Q’ and P’R’ are 1 unit.
Since the legs (and triangle) got smaller we know that the scale factor is between 0 and 1.
So.. 4 * x = 1
divide both sides by 4
x = 1/4
The scale factor is 1/4

## 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?

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.

## Which statement correctly describes the slope of the linear function that is represented by the data in the table? Table (It may move to the left a bit when it is actually posted, sorry. It shouldn’t be hard to read though) x y 8 -8 8 -4 8 0 8 4 8 8 a.The slope is positive. b.The slope is negative. c.The slope is zero. d.There is no slope.

Answer: d. There is no slope.

Step-by-step explanation:

We know that slope = For the given table, since there is no change in x coordinate .

Thus the change in x coordinate is 0.

Therefore, slope= which means the slope does not exist.

Hence, (d) is the right option. There is no slope.

## SPENT 50 POINTS ON THIS QUESTION PLEASE HELP In the table, x represents minutes, and y represents the altitude of an airplane. Table x y 15 22,500 20 20,000 25 17,500 30 15,000 Which statement is correct about the slope of the linear function that the table represents? a.The slope is positive because as the minutes decrease, the altitude increases. b.The slope is positive because as the minutes increase, the altitude increases. c.The slope is negative because as the minutes decrease, the altitude decreases. d.The slope is negative because as the minutes increase, the altitude decreases.

Slope=changey/changex
well, the slope will be positive when the minutes (x) are increasing and the altitude (y) is also increasing
the slope will be negative when the minutes (x) are increasing and the altitude (y) is decreasing

we see that x increase
and y decreases
so the slope is negative because as minutes incrases, altitude decreases

## What messages do the modern shows give you about family life? how do they get these messages across? do you feel the images portrayed by these modern shows are accurate? back up your comments with specific examples. what are some of the negative images presented about family life in the modern shows? give specific examples. what are some positive images presented about family life in the modern shows? give specific examples. how do the families in the modern shows solve their problems? do you feel this is realistic?

However, they also point out that it’s OK to have an unusual kind of family structure. On One Tree Hill, for example, Lucas is being raised by a single mom, and he has a close relationship with his uncle, but his dad isn’t completely out of the picture. On a teen show such as iCarly, on Nick, Carly’s older brother plays the role of guardian, because her dad is in the Air Force. Her mom is never really spoken of.

2. I do feel that most of the portrayal of family is accurate, on TV. Modern shows have steered away from the conventional “Mom, Dad, 2.5 kids plus dog” formula, which is accurate, because not all TV watchers are fortunate enough to have that kind of situation. See above answer for specific examples.

3. I think that a definite negative theme in today’s modern shows, revolve around views on alcohol and drugs. Obviously everyone is entitled to their own views, but more often than not, after a character drinks, or does something they shouldn’t, they panic about what their parents will do once they find out. This panic may lead them to increasingly dangerous situations. For example, in OTH, Nathan is drinking, and then goes out to drive his girlfriend’s car. When he crashes it into another car, he realizes the trouble he is in, and leaves the scene of the accident; thus potentially getting him in even more trouble. I realize that TV is in no way an accurate depiction of all life aspects, and it is “only TV”, but I think Nathan should have faced the consequences right away, because by running from the scene, he only put himself in danger of being caught, or arrested. Again, though, I’m reading too much into it.

14. E 2.0 m/s^2

Initially, a 20 N force is applied to the block, so it has an acceleration of 3.9 m/s^2. According to Newton’s law, the mass of the block is: In the second situation, a force of 10 N is applied to the block. Since the mass is still the same, the acceleration now is: So, approximately 2.0 m/s^2.

15. C. 866 N at 78.1° counterclockwise to the x-axis

Resultant along the x- and y-axis:  Magnitude and direction of the resultant:  16. D. 1720 N

Since the sphere is suspended, it is in equilibrium, therefore the tension in the chain is equal to the weight of the sphere attached to it, therefore: 17. C. A

This arrangement generates the largest tension in the chain, because in all other arrangements the weight of the object is split between the two chains, while in this case all the weight is hold by one chain, therefore the tension in this case is larger.

18. Straight path

The gravity “holds” the planets keeping them in a circular orbit. If we remove gravity, the planets would continue in a straight path with constant speed, because now there are no more forces acting on it, so by inertia they will continue their uniform motion with constant speed.

The weight of the bowling ball is given by: , where m is the mass of the ball and g is the acceleration due to gravity. The value of g increases when moving from the Earth’s center to the Earth’s surface, then decreases when moving far from the surface, so the point where g is greatest is at sea level, where it is 9.81 m/s^2. On the surface of the Moon, g is much smaller (about 1/6 of the value on Earth).

23. A. 0.5 m/s2

The acceleration of the block is given by Newton’s second law: 24. D. Both forces are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction.

According to Newton’s third law: if an object A exerts a force on an object B, then object B exerts a force equal and opposite on object B. In this case, objects A and B are the bat and the baseball, therefore the two forces are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction.

25. B. 2940 N

## According to Deborah Tannen in “You Just Don’t Understand: Men and Women in Conversation,” which statement is true about gender and listening behavior? A. Men and women listen in the same way. B. Women listen less to men than men listen to women. C. Men ask more argumentaive questions or seek to puncture holes in the other person’s position than do women. D. The differences represent negative motives on the part of both men and women.

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.

## Determine the equation of the graph and select the correct answer below. parabolic function going up from the left through the point approximately negative two and three fourths comma zero and turning at the point negative one comma three and going down through the point zero comma two and through the point approximately three fourths comma zero and continuing towards infinity

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 the telescope is 1 m deep and 8 m wide, how far is the focus from the vertex? 1 2 4 16 Find the vertex, focus, directrix, and focal width of the parabola. negative 1 divided by 12 times x squared = y

First, let me introduce the general equation of the parabola:

(x-h)^2 = +/- 4a(y-k) or (y-k)^2=+/- 4a(x-h), where

(h,k) are the coordinates of the vertex
a is the distance of the vertex to the focus
4a = length of lactus rectum or the focal width

If the equation contains (x-h)^2, then the parabola passes the x-axis twice. Similarly, (y-k)^2 passes the y-axis twice. If the sign is (-), it opens to the left(if y-axis) or downward (if x-axis). If the sign is (+), it opens to the right(if y-axis) or upward (if x-axis).

The equation of the parabola is -1/12 x^2 = y. Rearranging to the general form:

x^2 = -12y
Therefore,

-4a = -12
4a = 12
a = 3, and the parabola is facing downwards.

The vertex is (0,0) at the origin.
The focus is (0,-3). Since it is negative, the focus is situated downwards, hence -3.
The directrix is the mirror image of the focus. Hence, it is a line passing +3 on the y-axis. y=3
Focal width is 4a which is equal to 12 units.

## Use the graph below for this question: graph of parabola going through negative 5, 1 and negative 4, negative 4. What is the average rate of change from x = −5 to x = −4?

False

Step-by-step explanation:

Suposse that we are given a function f(x) and a constant value h.

1. Case:

If we take the function g(x)=f(x)+h, then the graph of the function g(x) will be the graph of the funcion f(x) moved up or down.

2.Case:

If we take the function g(x)=hf(x), then the graph of the function g(x) will be the graph of the function f(x) just taller or shorter.

3.Case:

If we take the function g(x)=f(x-h), then the graph of the function g(x) will be the graph of the fuction f(x) moved horizontally.

4. Case:

If we take the function g(x)=f(hx), then the graph of the function g(x) will be tha graph of the function f(x) wither or thiner.

For example:

If we take f(x)=sin(x) and h=2. Then, if we take g(x)=sin(2x) then f(0)=g(0)=0, which means that the graph of the functiction is not moved up or down. However, f(π/2)=sin(π/2)=1 and g(π/2)=sin(π)=0 which gives us a hint that the graph of the function became thiner.

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

## The daily profit p in dollars of a company making tables is described by the function upper p left parenthesis x right parenthesis equals negative 5 x squared plus 240 x minus 2475 p(x)=?5 x 2+240x?2475?, where x is the number of tables that are manufactured in 1 day. the maximum profit of the company occurs at the vertex of the parabola. how many tables should be made per day in order to obtain the maximum profit for the? company

The following equation of parabola is given:

p(x)= – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

where p(x) = y

This is a standard form of the parabola. We need to
convert this into vertex form of equation. The equation must be in the form:

y – k = a (x – h)^2

Where h and k are the vertex of the parabola. Therefore,

y = – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495)

Completing the square:

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + _) – (-5)* _

Where the value in the blank _ is = -b/2

Since b = -48        therefore,

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + 81) + 405

y – 405 = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 576)

y – 405 = -5 (x – 24)^2

Therefore the vertex is at points (24, 405).

The company should make 24 tables per day to attain maximum
profit.
