Which sentence from the essay best conveys the central idea of “Life Without Go Go Boots”? The rest of my life would be endurable if I had a pair of those white, calf-high confections with little black heels I learned what my mother had been trying to tell me all along: high fashion has the shelf life of potato salad. Style is mostly a matter of acting as if you know very well what you look like, thanks, and are just delighted about it I have a feeling the day might come when my daughter will beg to be a slave of conventional fashion.

# Tag: pair

When the two equations are both

y=some function of x

y=some other function of x, then

we can substitute the second equation into the first giving

some function of x = some other function of x and start solving.

For example,

y = –2x + 8

y = x – 1

substitute second into first

x-1=-2x+8

isolate x on left,

3x=9

x=3

second step is to substitute x=3 into second equation to get

y=x-1=3-1=2

Therefore the solution is (3,2)

Which kind of substance accepts an electron pair? base hydroxide ion acid alkali

**Answer: a.**

**Explanation: In “I’m Nobody! Who are you?”, by Emily Dickinson, the use of the phrase “admiring Bog”, reveals the poet thinks that being well known is ****unpleasant because everyone pays attention to what you do****. The poet claims she is nobody and that makes her excited. She doesn’t need the approval of others. She enjoys living as “nobody” and finds dreadful to be considered as somebody to pay attention to. **

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**

A pair of parallel lines is cut by a transversal: A pair of parallel lines cut by a transversal is shown. The inside bottom right angle is labeled 80 degrees. The alternate interior angle is cut by a ray and is labeled as x on one side and 20 degrees on the other. What is the measure of angle x?

**The right option is; B)missense**

Missense mutation is the type of mutation that causes sickle cell anemia

A missense mutation is a type of nonsynonymous substitution in which the change of a single nucleotide (base pair) influences the genetic code and results in a codon that code for a different amino acid. This type of mutation can affect the function of the protein, and it is responsible for human diseases such as, sickle-cell anemia and Epidermolysis bullosa.

When a standard pair of six sided dice are rolled, what is the probability of getting a 13?

**Answer: The correct option is (C). 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared **

**Step-by-step explanation: **Given that the segment AB has point A located at (8, 9). The distance from A to B is 10 units.

We are to **select the correct option that could be used to calculate the coordinates for point B.**

**Let, (x, y) be the co-ordinates of point B.**

**According to distance formula, the distance between two points (a, b) and (c, d) is given by**

**Therefore, the distance between the points A(8, 9) and B(x, y) is given by**

**Since, distance between A and B is 10 units, so**

**d = 10.**

**Therefore,**

**Thus, the correct statement is**

** 10 = square root of the quantity of x minus 8 all squared plus y minus 9 all squared.**

**Option (C) is correct. **

The statement is equivalent to

120=0 (mod n), meaning that n divides 120.

All divisors of 120 will satisfy the statement because 120 divided by a divisor (factor) will leave a remainder of 0.

Factors of 120 are:

n={1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,12,15,20,24,30,40,60,120}, |n|=16.

You can count how many such values of n there are, and try to check that each one satisfies 127=7 mod n.

**Answer**: D) Bountiful harvests, to suggest Gant’s agricultural success.

**Explanation:** In the given excerpt we can see many sensorial details like “His grape vines thickened into brawny ropes of brown” and “And the flowers grew in rioting glory in his yard—the velvet-leaved nasturtium, slashed with a hundred tawny dyes”, these sensorial details about Gant’s harvests helps to create an image of abundance, and products of great quality, which demonstrates Gant’s agricultural success.

The functional unit of the nervous system is the nerve cell or the neuron. The neuron consists of a cell body and the axon. The cell body starts with the dendrites that receive the messages or the impulses from other neurons or from different sense organs or receptors. These impulses are then transmitted through the cell body. The cell body contains a nucleus and different organelles which help the nerve cell to perform its functions. The nerve impulse is then transmitted to the axon.

The axon is an extension from the cell body. There are some cells called Schwan cells that secrete a myelin sheath to insulate the axon from the surrounding medium. The insulated axons have more ability to conduct the impulses than non-insulated axons. The axon ends with the terminal arborizations. The terminal arborizations of a nerve cell connect to the dendrites of the next cell or to the afferent organ. The gaps between the dendrites and the terminal arborizations are called the synapses.

The nerve impulse is an electrochemical phenomenon i.e. an electrical phenomenon with a chemical nature. The membrane of the axon acts as a barrier between an outside positively charged medium and an inside negatively charged medium. This makes a potential difference of -70mV. This state is called the resting potential. When the membrane is subjected to a stimulus, the positive charges enter to inside and the negative charges exit to the outside. The potential difference now becomes +40mV. This state is called the depolarization state. The point of stimulation acts as a new stimulus for the next point and so on. The membrane sooner gains its permeability again and the positive charges return to the outside and the negative charges to inside. This state is called repolarization.

The nerve impulse reaches the synapse. There are some neurotransmitters that are excited by the nerve impulse coming and carry the message across the membrane. Some receptors receive theses neurotransmitters on the dendrites of the next neuron. These receptors act as a stimulus for the new cell.

**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.

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.

**Answer:**

The coefficient of CO₂ is 5.

**Explanation:**

Balancing the reaction:

___C₅H₁₂ + ___O₂ → ___CO₂ + ___H₂O

There are 5 C in the left side, so we put 5 on the right side:

___C₅H₁₂ + ___O₂ → 5CO₂ + ___H₂O

There are 12 H in the left side, so we put 6 as the coefficient of H₂O:

___C₅H₁₂ + ___O₂ → 5CO₂ + 6H₂O

Finally, there are 16 O in the right side, so we put 8 as the coefficient of O₂

___C₅H₁₂ + 8O₂ → 5CO₂ + 6H₂O

*The coefficient of CO₂ is 5.*

The double-slit experiment is a famous tool to illustrate concepts within quantum mechanics. In particular it demonstrates the concept of wave-particle duality. Use of a light wave demonstrates diffraction and interference, which is a typical wave behaviour. Surprisingly, use of a beam of electrons also yields an interference pattern, showing electrons can behave like waves.

**Explanation:**

There would be a optical phenomenon pattern almost like, however totally different from, that exploitation light-weight.Interference and optical phenomenon are the phenomena that distinguish waves from particles: waves interfere and split, particles don’t.

Light bends around obstacles like waves do, and it’s this bending that causes the one slit optical phenomenon pattern.

**Answer:**

**Number of copy machines must be made to minimize the unit cost=160.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

We are given that the unit cost function C ( the cost in dollars to make each copy machine)

If machines are made =x

Then the unit cost function is given by

We have to find the number of copy machines for minimize the unit cost

Differentiate with respect to x

Then we get

……(equation I)

To find the value of x then we susbtitute is equal to zero

By using division property of equality

Again differentiate the equation I with respect to x then we get

Hence, the unit cost is minimize for x=160

**Therefore, the number of copy machines must be made to minimize the unit cost =160**

**Answer:**

Option C – BD=76 cm

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**Given :** You are designing a diamond-shaped kite. you know that AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm, and AC = 84.8 cm.

**To find : **How long BD should it be?

**Solution : **

First we draw a rough diagram.

The given sides were AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm and AC = 84.8 cm.

According to properties of kite

**Two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent.**

**So,** AD=AB=44.8 cm

DC=BC=72 cm

**The diagonals are perpendicular.**

**S**o, AC ⊥ BD

Let O be the point where diagonal intersect let let the partition be x and y.

AC= AO+OC

AC= …….[1]

Perpendicular bisect the diagonal BD into equal parts let it be z.

BD=BO+OD

BD=z+z

**Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔAOD**

where H=AD=44.8 ,P= AO=x , B=OD=z

………[2]

**Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔCOD**

where H=DC=72 ,P= OC=y , B=OD=z

…………[3]

**Subtract [2] and [3]**

……….[4]

**Add equation [1] and [4], to get values of x and y**

**Substitute x in [1]**

**Substitute value of x in equation [2], to get z**

**We know, **BD=z+z

BD= 38.06+38.06

BD= 76.12

**Nearest to whole number **BD=76 cm

**Therefore, Option c – BD=76 cm is correct.**

Which pair of algebraic expressions is equivalent? A. 7(1 – k) and 7 – k B.7(1 – k) and 1 – 7k C.7(1 – k) and 7 – k D.7(1 – k) and 7 – 7k IF THERE’S WORK PLEASE SHOW THANKS:)

**Answer:**

3 hours.

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Let x be the time taken by shoe repairman to repair one pair.

We have been given that his assistant, who takes twice as long to repair a pair of shoes. So time taken by his assistant to repair one pair of shoes would be 2x.

The number of pair of shoes repaired by repairman in one hour would be .

The number of pair of shoes repaired by assistant in one hour would be .

We have been given that together they can fix 16 pairs of shoes in an eight-hour day. We can represent this information in an equation as:

Let us have a common denominator.

Upon cross multiplying our equation we will get,

**Therefore, it take 3 hours for the repairman to fix one pair of shoes by himself.**

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner.

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony.

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world.

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too.

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way.

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again.

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it.

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies.

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists.

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out.

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

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**

**1.** The answer is** “C”.**

__ “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.

**2.** The answer is** “A”.**

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.
