The data set shown below represents the number of times some families went out for dinner the previous week. 4, 2, 2, 0, 1, 6, 3, 2, 5, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1 Create a dot plot to represent the data. What can you conclude about the dot plot of the data set? Check all that apply. The range of the number line should be 0 to 7 to represent the frequency. Four families said they ate out twice the previous week. One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week. The data set is symmetrical. The median best represents the data set.


Answer:

The correct options are:

  • Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.
  • One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.
  • The median best represents the data set.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given a data set as:

4, 2, 2, 0, 1, 6, 3, 2, 5, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1

On arranging this data set in the frequency table we get:

Number of times they went for dinner    Number of families  

           0                                                          2

           1                                                           3

           2                                                          4

           3                                                           1

           4                                                           2

           5                                                           1

           6                                                            1

  • Hence, the range of the number line is between 0 to 6.
  • Also there are 4 dots above 2.

    Hence,  Four families said they ate out twice the previous week.

  • Also there is one dot above 5.

        Hence,  One family said they ate out 5 times the previous week.

  • The data set is not symmetrical since the median is 2 and the data points to the left and to the right do not have symmetry.

Hence, the data set is not symmetrical.

  • Also we know that the median of the data is the central tendency of the data and always best represents the data.

Hence, The median best represents the data set.

Maria is erecting a statue on a triangular plot of land. She wants to put decorative stonework edging around the site. The length of one side of the plot of land is 25 feet. If the angles at the end of this side are 65° and 38°, find the length of stonework edging needed to enclose the site on which the statue is erected.


Draw the triangle shown below to illustrate the problem.
Given:
a=25 ft, ∠B=65°, ∠C=38°.

Because angles in a triangle sum to 180°, therefore
∠A = 180 – 65 – 38 = 77°.

Apply the Law of Sines to find b and c.
b/sin(B) = a/sin(A)
b/sn(65°) = 25/sin(77°)
b = [sin(65)/sin(77)]*25 = 23.254 ft

c/sin(C) = a/sin(A)
c/sin(38) = 25/sin(77)
c = [sin(38)/sin(77)]*25 = 15.796 ft

The length of stone work required is
a + b + c
= 25 + 23.254 + 15.796
= 64.05 ft

Answer: 64 ft (nearest integer).

Stacey is writing a literary analysis essay on a play. What approach should she take to write a strong essay Stacey should (Examine each element of the play) or (focus on the plot) and (develop the central idea for the essay) or (write a summary of the plot)


Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

Please help! Which plot shows the greater interquartile range ?


Number of cans donated the first week = 132
Number of cans donated the second week = 146
Number of cans donated the third week = c, where c is some positive number

Add up the three values (132, 146, and c) to get 132+146+c. I’m choosing not to simplify because each answer choice hasn’t simplified either.

The expression of 132+146+c represents the total amount of cans donated for weeks 1 through 3. We want “at least 325 cans”, so that means the expression is 325 or larger. That translates to this inequality

132+146+c ge 325

The “greater than or equal to” sign indicates we want that sum to be 325 or larger.

Now we solve for c

132+146+c ge 325
278+c ge 325
278+c-278 ge 325-278
c ge 47

So the amount of cans donated for week three needs to be 47 or larger. If you collect exactly 47 cans for week three, then you meet the goal of 325 total cans. If you collect more than 47 cans for week three, then you exceed the goal of 325 total cans.

————————————

In summary we have the inequality 
132+146+c ge 325
which solves to
c ge 47

Meaning that the answer is choice D

Read the passage. From “The First Seven Years” by Bernard Malamud “Thanks,” Max said, nervously alert. He was tall and grotesquely thin, with sharply cut features, particularly a beak-like nose. He was wearing a loose, long slushy overcoat that hung down to his ankles, looking like a rug draped over his bony shoulders, and a soggy, old brown hat, as battered as the shoes he had brought in. Identify the plot element in this passage.


Well; You have the classics

1984, you might have been asked to read this one already in school, if not I suggest going ahead and reading it; its fun to be ahead of your class. 

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website. 

Personally I prefer fantasy novels; 

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist 
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery 

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind 
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

A mini-golf course is determining the par score for each of its holes. The dot plot shows the number of strokes required to place a ball in the ninth hole for a sample of 25 players. Which measure of center is best to use to determine the expected number of strokes required for the ninth hole? The mean is the best choice because the data is nearly symmetrical. The median is the best choice because data is clustered. The mean is the best choice because the data is skewed to the right. The median is the best choice because the data is skewed to the left.


Answer:

Option A – The mean is the best choice because the data is nearly symmetrical.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : A mini-golf course is determining the par score for each of its holes. The dot plot shows the number of strokes required to place a ball in the ninth hole for a sample of 25 players.        

To find : Which measure of center is best to use to determine the expected number of strokes required for the ninth hole?    

Solution :

To determine the expected number of strokes required for the ninth hole the best measure of center is the mean of the data as the data is nearly symmetrical about the center point 4 and 5.

We can also find the mean of the data,

Mean is defined as  the sum of observation divided by number of observation.

i.e, Sum of observation is

Referring the dot plot of ninth hole strokes.

sum f_ix_i=(2)1+(3)2+(4)3+(5)4+(5)5+(3)6+(2)7+(0)8+(1)9  

sum f_ix_i=2+6+12+20+25+18+14+0+9          

sum f_ix_i=106  

Total number of observation n= 25

Mean=frac{sum f_ix_i}{n}

M=frac{106}{25}

M=4.24

Therefore, Option A is correct.

The mean is the best choice because the data is nearly symmetrical.

2. Use the stem-and-leaf plot to answer each question. a. How many males are 65 inches tall? b. What is the height of the shortest male? The shortest female? c. What is the height of the tallest female?


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.

So, the right choices are a, c and g.

Find three points that solve , then plot on the graph. -2x-3y=-7


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

d=sqrt{(c-a)^2+(d-b)^2}.

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

d=sqrt{(x-8)^2+(y-9)^2}.

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

d = 10.

Therefore,

10=sqrt{(x-8)^2+(y-9)^2}.

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.
