## 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.

## Consider the following pair of equations: y = –2x + 8 y = x – 1 Explain how you will solve the pair of equations by substitution. Show all the steps and write the solution in (x, y) form. (5 points)

There is a special kind of substitution which some books call it by comparison.

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)

## Read the following poem and then select the correct answer to the question below: “I’m Nobody! Who are you?” By Emily Dickinson I’m Nobody! Who are you? Are you – Nobody – too? Then there’s a pair of us! Don’t tell! they’d advertise – you know! How dreary – to be – Somebody! How public – like a Frog – To tell one’s name – the livelong June – To an admiring Bog! The use of the phrase admiring Bog reveals the poet thinks that being well known is a. unpleasant because everyone pays attention to what you do b. challenging because it can be hard to know everyone well c. nice because people want to be with you and help you d. rewarding because others look up to you as an example

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.

## 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

## Many different types of mutations can occur within the body. Sickle cell anemia is a disease that occurs when a mutation in a base pair of the hemoglobin beta gene causes a single replacement of the amino acid glutamic acid by the amino acid valine. As a result of this mutation, the individual’s blood cells take on a sickle shape under certain conditions and form clusters that can block blood vessels and cause organ damage. Which type of mutation causes sickle cell anemia? A)silent B)missense C)insertion D)frameshift

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.

## Find the distance between each pair of points

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 vertices of a figure are labeled clockwise A(–4, 2), B(2, 4), C(7, 1), and D(–5, –3). How could you show that the figure is a trapezoid? (Hint: A trapezoid has exactly one pair of parallel sides.)

127=7 (mod n) means when 127 is divided by n, the division leaves a remainder of 7.

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.

## Which excerpt from “The Man to Send Rain Clouds” best illustrates how Leon’s beliefs differ from those of Father Paul? “Well, I’m glad you understand. I hope I’ll be seeing you at Mass this week—we missed you last Sunday. See if you can get old Teofilo to come with you.” The priest smiled and waved at them as they drove away. Leon walked toward the old man’s bed. The red plaid shawl had been shaken and spread carefully over the bed, and a new brown flannel shirt and pair of stiff new Levi’s were arranged neatly beside the pillow. It was noontime now because the church bells rang the Angelus. They ate the beans with hot bread, and nobody said anything until after Teresa poured the coffee. Leon turned to look up at the high blue mountains in the deep snow that reflected a faint red light from the west. He felt good because it was finished, and he was happy about the sprinkling of the holy water; now the old man could send them big thunderclouds for sure.

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.

## Which pair of terms describes the same characteristic? a. compound: alveolar b. acinar: alveolar c. tubular: merocrine d. simple: tubular?

There are two systems in the human body that are responsible for the coordination between the functions of different systems to achieve the unity of the living organism’s body. These two systems are the nervous system and the endocrine system. The action of the nervous system is fast and takes a short time, while the action of the endocrine system is slow and takes a long time.

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.

## Name a pair of supplementary angles. A. angle A E B and angle C E D B. angle A E B and angle B E D C. angle A E C and angle B E D D. angle B E A and angle C E B

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.

## Which statement defines reduction potential when considering a pair of half-cell reactions? The half-reaction with the greater SRP has a greater tendency to gain electrons. The half-reaction with the lower SRP has a greater tendency to gain electrons. If each half-reaction has an SRP greater than zero, there will be two reduction reactions. If each half-reaction has an SRP less than zero, there will be two oxidation reactions.

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.

## Which pair of atoms has the highest electronegativity difference? H – S H – Cl N – H O – H C – H

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.

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.

DC=BC=72 cm

The diagonals are perpendicular.

So, 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.

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

## One of the most common causes of intellectual disability is ________ syndrome, which at one time was called mongoloidism and is caused by the presence of an extra of the 21st pair of chromosomes.

“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.

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.
