Read the excerpts from different sections “The Scarlet Ibis.” Although Doodle learned to crawl, he showed no signs of walking, but he wasn’t idle. He talked so much that we all quit listening to what he said. It was about this time that Daddy built him a go-cart and I had to pull him around. At first I just paraded him up and down the piazza, but then he started crying to be taken out into the yard and it ended up by my having to lug him wherever I went. If I so much as picked up my cap, he’d start crying to go with me and Mama would call from wherever she was, “Take Doodle with you.” *** He’d nod his head, and I’d say, “Well, if you don’t keep trying, you’ll never learn.” Then I’d paint for him a picture of us as old men, white-haired, him with a long white beard and me still pulling him around in the go-cart. This never failed to make him try again. Based on these excerpts, what best describes the symbol of the go-cart within the story? It changes from a symbol of youth to a symbol of old age. It changes from a symbol of success to a symbol of failure. It changes from a symbol of hope to a symbol of desperation. It changes from a symbol of freedom to a symbol of captivity.

Which revision corrects the punctuation errors in this complex sentence with two dependent clauses? We picked these apples, when we went upstate which was on Tuesday. Remove the comma after “apples” and put a comma after “upstate.” Leave the comma after “apples” and add a comma after “upstate.” Remove the comma after “apples” and do not add any other commas. Remove the comma after “apples” and add a comma after “was.”


The answer to your question would be that the revision that corrects the punctuation errors in the sentence is the following one: Remove the comma after “apples” and put a comma after “upstate.”

The first comma should be removed (the one after apples) because it provides information that is considered essential to the meaning of the sentence, it states the time when they picked the apples. Then, there should be a comma after “upstate” because the information that follows (a relative clause further specifying the date) is non essential. As such, it should be separated from the rest of the sentence.

The time, t, required to pick some apples varies directly with the number of bushels of apples to be picked, b, and inversely to the number of people picking apples, p, and t=1.5 h when b=4 and p=3. find b if t=1.8 h and p=5


Stock A:

Zachary bought 40 shares of stock A at $80 a share. So he paid 40*80 = 3200 dollars for the shares of stock A.

He then sells stock A at $83 a share, so 83*40 = 3320 is the amount he gets back. The net result is 3320-3200 = 120. Divide this over the initial cost to get 120/3200 = 0.0375

So the rate of return (ROR) for stock A is 3.75%

—————————————

Stock B:

total cost = (number of shares of stock B)*(cost per share of stock B)
total cost = 80*160
total cost = 12800

Then he sells stock B at $166 a share

80*166 = 13280

He nets 13280 – 12800 = 480 dollars from stock B

The ROR for stock B is 480/12800 = 0.0375 = 3.75%

So far, we see that the ROR for both stocks (A and B) are the same at 3.75%

—————————————

Bond:

par value = $1000
coupon = (0.0525)*(1000) = $52.50

ROR = (coupon)/(price) = 52.50/775 = 0.0677 = 6.77%

—————————————

In summary, we have

ROR for stock A = 3.75%
ROR for stock B = 3.75%
ROR for bond = 6.77%

Stock A and B have a tie for the lowest ROR

so that’s why the answer is choice 1) Stock A and Stock B

Each of the numbers from 1 to 50 is written on a tile and the tiles are placed upside down on the top of the table. if a tile is picked up at random, what is the probability that the number on the tile is multiple of 7 or a multiple of 8?

Answer: Cost of pizza with 5 toppings is $22.75.

Step-by-step explanation:

Since we have given that

Cost of pizza with no toppings = $14.00

Cost of pizza with 2 toppings = $17.50

Let the number of toppings  be ‘x’.

So, first statement becomes

P = $14.00 ———(1)

So, second statement becomes

P+2x=$17.50------(2)

So, put the value of p in eq(2), we get

P+2x=17.50\\14+2x=17.50\\2x=17.50-14\\2x=3.5\\x=dfrac{3.5}{2}\\x=$1.75

So, Cost of pizza with 5 toppings would be

P+5x\\=14.00+5times 1.75\\=14.00+8.75\\=$22.75

Hence, Cost of pizza with 5 toppings is $22.75.

A number is randomly selected from {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}. A is represented by the event that the number picked is greater than 7. What is the probability of the complement of event A? 310 25 35 710


Hello there! 🙂

Answer:

1. B. 8. and x=8

*The answer must have a positive sign.*

2. D. Infinitely many.

3. D. -1 and y=-1

*The answer must have a negative sign.*

4. C. He didn’t add 13 to 26.

5. B. 4 and y=4

*The answer must have a positive sign.*

Step-by-step explanation:

1. First, you divide by 5 from both sides of an equation.

frac{5x}{5}=frac{40}{5}

Then, simplify.

40/5=8

Answer: → boxed{x=8}

_______________________________________________

2.  4x=4x both sides are equal and it’s true.

Answer: boxed{D.}

________________________________________________

3. First, switch sides of an equation.

y+9=8

Then, you subtract by 9 from both sides of an equation.

y+9-9=8-9

Simplify and solve.

8-9=-1

Answer: →boxed{y=-1}

________________________________________________________

4. First, add by 13 from both sides of an equation.

x-13+13=26+13

Then simplify and solve.

26+13=39

Answer: boxed{x=39} and boxed{C.}

_______________________________________________________

5. First, subtract by 9 from both sides of an equation.

y+9-9=13-9

Then simplify and solve.

13-9=4

Answer: boxed{y=4}

Hope this helps!

Thanks!

Have a great day!
