Suppose that people’s heights (in centimeters) are normally distributed with a mean of 170 and a standard deviation of 5. We find the heights of 50 people.

[ad_1]

We have
mean=mu=170
standard deviation=sigma=5

can now calculate the Zmin and Zmax using Z=(X-mean)/standard deviation
Zmin=(165-170)/5=-1
Zmax=(175-170)/5=+1
From normal probability tables, 
P(z<Zmin)=P(z<-1)=0.15866
P(z<Zmax)=P(z<+1)=0.84134
P(165<x<175)=P(Zmin<z<Zmax)=0.84134-0.15866= 0.68269

PLEASE HELP Mr. Utterson the lawyer was a man of a rugged countenance, that was never lighted by a smile; cold, scanty and embarrassed in discourse; backward in sentiment; lean, long, dusty, dreary, and yet somehow lovable. At friendly meetings, and when the wine was to his taste, something eminently human beaconed from his eye; something indeed which never found its way into his talk, but which spoke not only in these silent symbols of the after-dinner face, but more often and loudly in the acts of his life. He was austere with himself; drank gin when he was alone, to mortify a taste for vintages; and though he enjoyed the theatre, had not crossed the doors of one for twenty years. But he had an approved tolerance for others; sometimes wondering, almost with envy, at the high pressure of spirits involved in their misdeeds; and in any extremity inclined to help rather than to reprove. "I incline to, Cain's heresy*," he used to say. "I let my brother go to the devil in his quaintly 'own way.'" In this character, it was frequently his fortune to be the last reputable acquaintance and the last good influence in the lives of down-going men. And to such as these, so long as they came about his chambers, he never marked a shade of change in his demeanour. No doubt the feat was easy to Mr. Utterson; for he was undemonstrative at the best, and even his friendship seemed to be founded in a similar catholicity of good-nature. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity; and that was the lawyer's way. His friends were those of his own blood or those whom he had known the longest; his affections, like ivy, were the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object. Hence, no doubt, the bond that united him to Mr. Richard Enfield, his distant kinsman, the well-known man about town. It was a nut to crack for many, what these two could see in each other, or what subject they could find in common. It was reported by those who encountered them in their Sunday walks, that they said nothing, looked singularly dull, and would hail with obvious relief the appearance of a friend. For all that, the two men put the greatest store by these excursions, counted them the chief jewel of each week, and not only set aside occasions of pleasure, but even resisted the calls of business, that they might enjoy them uninterrupted. *The biblical story of Cain and Abel is a story about two brothers who gave offerings to God. Abel’s offering was accepted by God, but Cain’s was not. Jealous, Cain killed his brother. When God asked Cain where Abel was, Cain said, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” By saying this, Cain implied that what his brother did was his own business. (Genesis 4:1-16) What is significant about “Cain’s heresy” in this passage? A.It shows that Mr. Utterson is a deeply religious and righteous person. B.It shows that Mr. Utterson tries not to judge others or get in their business. C.It shows the Mr. Utterson wants to steal from other people’s businesses. D.It shows that Mr. Utterson does not believe in any kind of religion at all.

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America. 

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.

Poland Hungary Bulgaria

In the aftermath of World War II, the influence of the Soviet Union extended through the countries that were invaded by fascists in the Eastern Front, such as Poland, Hungary, and Bulgaria.

Poland

In January 1947, elections were held, resulting in the communist Republic of Poland. Previously elections were intervened so the communist candidates could turn victorious, and the members of communist resistance continued to resist in the territories near to Ucrain but fierce soviets intervention turned to mass arrest where all kinds of executions, deportations, and imprisonment took place.

Bulgaria

In September 1944, The Soviets declared war on Bulgary, under the argument that this country allowed its territory where the Wehrmacht (Germany) crossed and continued to press the frontlines eastwards. The Red Army motivated a coup d Etat where communists also set favorable conditions for the creation of a communist regime.

-This countries became to form the Eastern bloc, a period that lasted several decades until the 1989 Revolutions set an important amount of political and social changes in Europe in East and Central Europe, causing most of the socialist states, formerly puppet states to Soviet Russia to collapse and engage in democratic process and incorporate a different economic model.

It created a weak central government

The Articles of Confederation (1781), the first U.S.’s Constitution, was characterized for establishing a very weak central government consisting only of a Congress, it didn’t even have a President, and for giving more power to the states, who had sovereignty.

Under the Constitution, the Congress had the power to make treaties and alliances, coin money, pay the war debts, maintain an army, appoint military officers, control Indian affairs, and to regulate foreign affairs, war, and the postal service. However, it did not have the power to levy taxes to the states to pay for those things, which eventually bring the newly independent America to an economic disaster

Answer:

One of the many different themes that is dealt with in the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”, by Richard Connell, and which is really interesting, is the reality of human brutality, and cruelty that is disguised by civilization and education.  

Explanation:

This can be seen in the story when Mr. Rainsford, the main protagonist, and an acknowledged hunter, meets General Zaroff, and lives as a guest under the man´s roof. This portrayal of the real brutality and cruelty that lies in human hearts, and that is covered through the hypocrisy of outward civilization and education, is the first thing that meets the reader´s eyes when we see how the general surrounds himself, within a jungle, by all that had once been a part of his European and aristocratic lifestyle. He is a gentleman in all manners, even when he is talking about the need to hunt human beings because he has become bored by animal hunting, but in truth, deep within, General Zaroff is just as brutal, and cruel, as the most vicious of all animals, and even worse, because he hides behind the guise of education and manners. This is why I chose this as one of the most interesting psychological themes in the story.

Which evaluation of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman makes an accurate conclusion about Wollstonecraft’s beliefs and correctly supports it with text evidence? Wollstonecraft writes, “Such deeply rooted prejudices have clouded reason.” This supports the idea that she believes people must overcome existing prejudices to reason correctly. Wollstonecraft writes, “Men, in general, seem to employ their reason to justify prejudices.” This supports the idea that she believes all men are prejudiced and are therefore unable to reason truthfully. Wollstonecraft writes, “The society is formed in the wisest manner.” This supports the idea that she believes that humans are so smart that their ability to reason is unquestionable. Wollstonecraft writes, “For why should the gracious fountain of life give us passions.” This supports the idea that she believes that people’s passions should be ignored in favor of their reason.

The correct answer is C. Demonstrates a lack of organization

Explanation:

A rubric is a tool used to assess or evaluate the quality of someone’s work such as essays or presentations. Because of this, in educational contexts, rubrics are widely used tools to assess students performance in some task assigned by the teacher. Rubrics are usually charts that work as scoring guides and that contain the criteria to evaluate some specific work, in this way, rubrics usually contain the aspects that will be evaluated such as coherence, development of ideas, grammar accuracy or organization and the levels of performance of these aspects expressed by qualifying words such as excellent, good, needs improvement or by a rate of numbers in which 1 or 0 shows the lowest level of performance. Additionally, each chart of a rubric describes the criterion according to each rate, for example, if you receive a rate of 0 for coherence the criterion for this would be “complete lack of coherence” or “a text that is not logically connected”. Considering this, the criterion that would give Dana a score of 1 in the organization category would be “Demonstrates a lack of organization” as a score of 1 is a synonym of the lowest level of performance which means Dana essay is not well organized.
