## Henry’s little brother has \$8\$ identical stickers and \$4\$ identical sheets of paper. how many ways are there for him to put all of the stickers on the sheets of paper, if only the number of stickers on each sheet matters?

The easiest way to visualize
and answer this is to list all possible combinations or arrangements on the 4 sheets of paper.

Take note that the arrangement is as following:

# of stickers on sheet 1 – # of stickers on sheet 2 – # of stickers on sheet 3 – # of stickers on sheet 4

8 – 0 – 0 – 0

7 – 1 – 0 – 0

6 – 2 – 0 – 0

6 – 1 – 1 – 0

5 – 3 – 0 – 0

5 – 2 – 1 – 0

5 – 1 – 1 – 1

4 – 4 – 0 – 0

4 – 3 – 1 – 0

4 – 2 – 2 – 0

4 – 2 – 1 – 1

3 – 3 – 2 – 0

3 – 3 – 1 – 1

3 – 2 – 2 – 1

2 – 2 – 2 – 2

Therefore there are a total
combinations of 15 arrangements of stickers on sheets of paper.

## Read the poem below and answer the question that follows. “Blazon” by Cecilia Woloch —after Breton My love with his hair of nightingales With his chest of pigeon flutter, of gray doves preening themselves at dawn With his shoulders of tender balconies half in shadow, half in sun My love with his long-boned thighs the map of Paris of my tongue With his ink-stained tongue, his tongue the tip of a steeple plunged into milky sky My love with his wishing teeth With his fingers of nervous whispering, his fingers of a boy whose toys were cheap and broken easily My love with his silent thumbs With his eyes of a window smudged of a train that passes in the night With his nape of an empty rain coat hung by the collar, sweetly bowed My love with his laughter of an empty stairwell, rain all afternoon With his mouth the deepest flower to which I have ever put my mouth Source: Woloch, Cecilia. “Blazon.” Blogalicious.

B. the initial successes of World Bike Relief C. a life transformed by bicycle ownership D. a volunteer experience with World Bike ReliefRead this excerpt from Wheels of Change by Sue Macy.In efforts to restart the lives of those devastated by the crushing waves of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, my husband, F. K. Day, and I founded World Bicycle Relief (WBR). WBR works to provide access to independence and livelihood through the power of bicycles. During our work in Sri Lanka in 2005-2006, we put more than 24,000 new bicycles into the hands of those rebuilding their lives. Since 2006, we have moved into Africa where we currently work in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya addressing oppressive poverty and the AIDS pandemic by mobilizing volunteer caregivers, students, and entrepreneurs with bicycles.

The chronology that is described in the excerpt Wheels of Change by Sue Macy is a life transformed by bicycle ownership. The answer is letter C. It is shown in the excerpt above that the couple tried their best to help the people in Sri Lanka get on with their lives by helping them own a bicycle which will produce energy at a much lower cost.

## 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

## Which lines by Emily Dickinson are an example of metaphor? A. We outgrow love like other things And put it in the drawer, B. Till it an antique fashion shows Like costumes grandsires wore. C. Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul, D. I’ve heard it in the chillest land, And on the strangest sea;

The line by Emily Dickinson that are an example of metaphor is option C.

Hope is the thing with feathers That perches in the soul,

A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes an object or action in a way that isn’t literally true, but helps explain an idea or make a comparison. A metaphor states that one thing is another thing. The different between the metaphor and the similes, is that the latter employs words such as “like” and “as” in order to create a comparison.

## 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.

Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

## Read the excerpt from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Nonsense,” laughed Rainsford. “This hot weather is making you soft, Whitney. Be a realist. The world is made up of two classes—the hunters and the huntees. Luckily, you and I are the hunters. Do you think we’ve passed that island yet?” Read the excerpt of Zaroff speaking from “The Most Dangerous Game.” “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if needs be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure. I am strong. Why should I not use my gift? If I wish to hunt, why should I not? I hunt the sc*m of the earth—sailors from tr*mp ships—lascars, blacks, Chinese, whites, mongrels—a thoroughbred horse or hound is worth more than a score of them.” How do these excerpts show the difference between Rainsford and Zaroff? a) Rainsford believes that animals are inferior to humans and therefore deserve to be hunted, while Zaroff feels this way about other humans. b) Rainsford has a deep feelings and sympathy for the prey he hunts, while Zaroff has no feelings or sympathy for his prey at all. c) Rainsford believes that it is acceptable to hunt all things as long as they are weaker, while Zaroff hunts only human beings. d) Rainsford hunts for pure amusement, while Zaroff believes he is performing a service by hunting the “sc*m of the earth.”

Hey there!

Correct answer is D. Comma or Period Inside Rule

A. Question mark or exclamation point inside: those are not really necessary.

B. Colon or semicolon: not, a semicolon would divide the whole sentence and it would be shorten; a colon would work but after requested, when there is already a comma.

C. Question mark or Exclamation Point Outside Rule: would not work, becase it is an very polite and affirmative sentence.

D: A comma or period inside rule: actually, just a comma would work. Please, Cooper’s dad requested, go… Cooper’s dad requested must be in between commas as it is a vocative.

## What was the main effect of poll taxes and literacy test put in place in the south at the end of the 19th century

Here are the following effects of loose money and tight
money policies on the actions being listed.

A. A loose money policy
is usually implemented as an effort to encourage economic growth.

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
effects are:

## Match these items a. Compound sentence b. Complex sentence c. Simple sentence d. Compound-complex sentence 1. A sentence that contains only one subject and one verb. 2. Two or more simple sentences put together with either a semi-colon, or a comma and a conjunction. 3. A sentence that consists of one independent clause and one or more dependent clauses. 4. Two or more independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses.

Your answer would be that the correct version of the sentence is the following one: My brother took out the garbage, and Motehr was very happy.

Explanation:

You should capitalize words such as Mother, Father, Brother, Sister, Grandmother, Son, Daughter when they are used in place of the person’s name. What is more, you should not capitalize them when they follow possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, our). In the sentence above, Mother is capitalized because it is not preceded by any pronoun, while brother is not because it follows the possessive pronoun my.

## Nick has 31 coins, make up of quarters, nickels, and dimes. if he had one more dime, he would have just as many dimes as he has nickels and quarters put together. if the total value of nick’s coins is \$4.70, how many coins of each does he have?

The triangle ABC is similar to triangle LMP. The order here is very important. The letters correspond to one another
A corresponds to L (first letters of each sequence)
B corresponds to M (second letters of each sequence)
C corresponds to P (third letters of each sequence)

In a similar fashion, the segments also correspond to one another.
AB corresponds to LM (first two letters of each sequence)
AC corresponds to LP (first and last letters of each sequence)
BC corresponds to MP (last two letters of each sequence)

————————————

AB corresponds to LM. AB is 4 units long. LM is 2 units long. So AB is twice as long as LM. This ratio (of 2:1) will be applied to every paired corresponding value.

Also, the right angle is at angle M for triangle LMP. The right angle will be at angle B for triangle ABC (since B corresponds to M). The answer will have an x coordinate of 7. So the answer is either choice B or choice C.

If we move 4 units down from point B, we land on (7,-10). That isn’t listed as an answer choice. Let’s try moving 4 units up from point B. We land on (7,-2). This is an answer choice

So the final answer is choice C) (7,-2)
