## 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.

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

## Robert putnam and others have expressed concern about how social and technological developments in the last few decades have weakened peoples social ties with one another. identify the consequences of this weakening.

Robert Putnam called “social capital” the set of social norms and practices established in society through a relationship of trust and cooperation between men. Putman criticized the capitalist mode of production that aimed exclusively at profit. In his view, the focus of production should not be commodity and profit, but benefits to workers through the equal distribution of labor and tent.

5. Since more people are employed, thus
production also increases

B. A tight money policy is a course of action to restrict spending
in an economy that is growing too quickly or to hold back inflation when it is
rising too fast. This can lead to recession when uncontrolled. The

## Mao zedong’s proclamation creating the communist people’s republic of china was announced in: 1911 1983 1949 1976

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.

Hungary

In Hungary, the Soviets imposed harsh conditions that seized key raw materials and interfered in the internal affairs and social, policymaking. The Red army set some vigilance with police to persecute political opponents and enemies of the state.

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.

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

## Which of these quotations from “Thanksgiving: A Native American View” shows logic in argument? A.) Nearly 70 percent of all crops grown today were originally cultivated by Native American peoples. B.) By 1623, Mather the elder, a Pilgrim leader, was giving thanks to his God for destroying the heathen savages…. C.)

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.
