## A fence 6 feet tall runs parallel to a tall building at a distance of 5 feet from the building. what is the length of the shortest ladder that will reach from the ground over the fence to the wall of the building?

Looks too ugly to me, but this is what I get:

First, draw the triangle of the ladder, with the fence and the building.

There are two similar right triangles: the one from the ground to the fence, and the one from the ground to the building. Let’s call L the length of the ladder and l, the length of the ladder from the ground to the fence, then:

L/(x+d) = l/x, where x is the horizontal distance from the point where the ladder touches the ground to the base of the fence and ‘d’ is the distance between the fence and the building (d=5 ft).

L = (x+d)/x*l, now l = sqrt( x^2+h^2), where h is the height of the fence (h=6 ft).

Then, one usually squares it, because the point where the maximum or minimum is attained is the same when optimizing a distance.

So that, one could look for the minimum of L^2 = (x+d)^2/x^2*(x^2+h^2), where d = 5 ft, and h = 6ft.

What I don;t like, is that L’ = dL/dx is a bit lengthy to calculate and then you have to set it = 0. I think all this is right, but I expected a somewhat simpler expression, unless you’re doing AP or similar.

## If Denise wanted to create a function that modeled an exponential function with base of 12 and what exponents were needed to reach specific values, how would she set up her function? f(x) = x12 f(x) = log12x f(x) = 12x f(x) = logx12

Denise creates the exponential function

assume she want to find for what value of x, her function reaches the value, 3, or 8.2, or any value a (larger than 0)

so she shants to solve    (“for what value of x, is 12 to the power of x equal to a?”)

this expression is equivalent to

(so 12 to the power of x is a, for x=)

we can generalize this result by creating a function f.

In this function we enter x, the specific value we want to reach. f will calculate the exponent needed, in the following way:

(example: we want to calculate at which value is equal to 5?

check:, which is true, by properties of logarithms)

This problem is to apply Roult’s Law.

Roult’s Law states that the vapor pressure, p, of a solution of a non-volatile solute is equal to the vapor pressure of the pure solvent, Po solv, times the mole fraction of the solvent, Xsolv

p = Xsolv * Po sol

X solv = number of moles of solvent / number of moles of solution

The solvent is water and the solute (not volatile) is glycerin.

Number of moles = mass in grams / molar mass

mass of water = 132 ml * 1 g/ml = 132 g

molar mass of water = 18 g/mol

=> number of moles of water = 132 g / 18 g/mol = 7.33333 mol

mass of glycerin = 27.2 g

molar mass of glycerin:, C3H8O3: 3 * 12 g/mol + 8 * 1 g/mol + 3*16 g/mol = 92 g/mol

number of moles of glycerin = 27.2g / 92 g/mol = 0.29565

total number of moles = 7.33333 moles + 0.29565 moles = 7.62898 moles

=> X solv = 7.33333 / 7.62898 = 0.96125

=> p = 0.96125 * 31.8 torr ≈ 30.57 torr ≈ 30.6 torr.

## You have \$36,948.61 in a brokerage account, and you plan to deposit an additional \$3,000 at the end of every future year until your account totals \$280,000. you expect to earn 11% annually on the account. how many years will it take to reach your goal? round your answer to two decimal places at the end of the calculations.

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

= 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

Kamala Markandaya  was a pseudonym used by Kamala Purnaiya Taylor who was born on 01 January 1924 and died on 16 May 2004. She was an Indian novelist and journalist. A native of Mysore, India, Markandaya was a graduate of Madras University, and afterwards published several short stories in Indian newspapers. After India declared its independence, Markandaya moved to Britain, however, she still considered herself an Indian expatriate long afterwards.

Known for writing about culture between Indian urban and rural societies, Markandaya’s first published novel, Nectar in a Sieve, was a bestseller and cited as an American Library Association Notable Book in 1955.

The book is set in India during a period of intense urban development and is the chronicle of the marriage between Rukmani, youngest daughter of a village headman, and Nathan, a tenant farmer. The story is told in the first person by Rukmani, beginning from her arranged marriage to Nathan at the age of 12 to his death many years later.

Food is a critical aspect in the development of the story, Rukmani and Nathan struggle to feed their children and to pay the rent on the land that gives them life. Although difficulties continue to worsen, they quietly resign themselves to ever-increasing sufferings: flood, famine, even death, yet they stick to their hopes for a better future.

One definition of the word season as it is used in Nectar in a Sieve is that:

it is a period of the year associated with something in particular that happens every year

“Identical twins” who have been raised apart are typically more similar in intelligence level than biological siblings raised together because they have been born with the same genetic code.

Identical twins originate from a single fertilized egg that parts into two. Before it parts, it is either male or female. After it parts, there are either two guys or two females. The two sections of the fertilized egg embed in the uterus and every create one of the twins.

Identical twins have the equivalent hereditary source. No immediate reason for monozygotic twinning has been resolved; it isn’t innate. Monozygotic twins speak to around 33% all things considered. They may look strikingly comparative, and it might be hard to reveal to them separated.

3. The answer is “D.  showing a learner how to correct common mistakes”.

The term scaffolding alludes to a procedure in which instructors display or exhibit how to take care of an issue, and afterward venture back, offering support as required. Analyst and instructional architect Jerome Bruner first utilized the term ‘scaffolding’ in this setting, harking back to the 1960s. The hypothesis is that when understudies are given the help they require while discovering some new information, they stand a superior possibility of utilizing that learning freely. Bruner suggests positive association and three methods of portrayal amid educating: activities, pictures, and dialect.

## Which food choice would you reach for first at the salad bar if you wanted to increase your iron intake?

Initial price, P₀ = \$1.25
Initial demand, Q₀ = 30 million

New price, P₁ = \$1.75
New demand, Q₁ = 35 million

By definition, price elasticity is

η = (5/65)/(0.5/3)
= 0.4615

Answer: η = 0.46 (nearest hundredth)

This means that greater demand makes it possible to increase the price. Usually, this is not the case because lowering the price increases sales.

## A motorist drives along a straight road at a constant speed of 15.0 m/s. Just as she passes a parked motorcycle police offi cer, the offi cer starts to accelerate at 2.00 m/s2 to overtake her. Assuming that the offi cer maintains this acceleration, (a) determine the time interval required for the police offi cer to reach the motorist. Find (b) the speed and (c) the total displacement of the offi cer as he overtakes the motorist.

a) The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) The total distance traveled by the officer was 225 m.

Explanation:

The equations for the position and velocity of an object moving in a straight line are as follows:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

v = v0 + a · t

Where:

x = position at time t

x0 = initial position

v0 = initial velocity

t = time

a = acceleration

v = velocity at time t

a)When the officer reaches the motorist, the position of the motorist is the same as the position of the officer:

x motorist = x officer

Using the equation for the position:

x motirist = x0 + v · t (since a = 0).

x officer = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

Let´s place our frame of reference at the point where the officer starts following the motorist so that x0 = 0 for both:

x motorist = x officer

x0 + v · t = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²      (the officer starts form rest, then, v0 = 0)

v · t = 1/2 · a · t²

Solving for t:

2 v/a = t

t = 2 · 15.0 m/s/ 2.00 m/s² = 15 s

The time the police officer required to reach the motorist was 15 s.

b) Now, we can calculate the speed of the officer using the time calculated in a) and the  equation for velocity:

v = v0 + a · t

v = 0 m/s + 2.00 m/s² · 15 s

v = 30 m/s

The speed of the officer at the moment she overtakes the motorist is 30 m/s

c) Using the equation for the position, we can find the traveled distance in 15 s:

x = x0 + v0 · t + 1/2 · a · t²

x = 1/2 · 2.00 m/s² · (15s)² = 225 m

## A projectile is thrown upward so that it’s distance above the ground after t seconds is h=-16t^2 +672t. After how many seconds does it reach its maximum height?

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

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

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

d = 10.

Therefore,

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.

Television helped advertisers reach a wider market, and Americans were encouraged to buy the many products they saw in ads. all of the above

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.

What about a compromise? Keep all firearms, but add a new, large tax on ammunition. Which change to the article would show bias in favor of one side of the gun-control debate? “It is important that we reach a compromise!” “Many Floridians think that the gun-control issue is important to address.” “Most people know that limiting access to firearms will make the nation safer.” “Others believe that this goes against their constitutional rights as Americans.”

C) Nations begin to rely on each other for things they cannot produce themselves.

Explanation:

Globalization can lead to interdependence among nations. One of the most common ways in which this happens is through free trade. When two countries trade, they exchange goods and services. If the relationship is long and stable enough, the population can come to rely on the other country’s goods, which might not be produced in their country, or might be produced at a much higher price.

## You reach into a bag of coins and withdraw two coins. what is the probability you withdrew a nickel and then a dime if the bag held 5 pennies, ten nickels, and four dimes?

The Venn diagram is not included, so I am going to explain the procedure and you will be able to calculate the result just plugging the numbers.

From Vend diagram you will be able to conclude two numbers:

1) the total number os students surveyed that participate in band (B)

2) the total number of students surveyed that participate in track (T)

3) the total number of students surveyed that participate in both band (B) and track (T) = B∩T

4) ) the total number of students surveyed, which is: total number of students in band B + total number of students in track – less the number of students that participate in both. = B + T – (B∩T)

So, the probability that one student that participate in band (B) also participate in track (T) =

Number of students that participate in both / number of students that participate in band = (B∩T) / B

Now, you just have to find B∩T and B from the diagram and plugg in into the formula (B∩T)/B. That’s it.

## What are thermal plasmas? A) Plasmas that have particles that collide infrequently… B) plasmas that reach a temperature equal to their surroundings.. C) plasmas that do not reach thermal equilibrium…D) plasmas that only have a few particles ionized at any given moment.

Answer is: A. f > d > p > s.

Aufbau principle is a scheme used to reproduce the electron configurations of the ground states of atoms by successively filling subshells (orbitals) with electrons in a specific order.

Filling subshells in the following order: 1s, 2s, 2p, 3s, 3p, 4s, 3d, 4p, 5s, 4d, 5p, 6s, 4f, 5d, 6p, 7s, 5f.

The azimuthal quantum number (l) determines its orbital angular momentum and describes the shape of the orbital.

s-orbitals (for example 1s, 2s) are spherically symmetric around the nucleus of the atom.

p-orbitals are dumb-bell shaped. l = 0,1…n-1, when l = 1, that is p subshell.

d-orbitals are butterfly shaped.

f-orbitals are similar to the d orbital, but cut in half (eight lobes instead of four).

## When a 10.00 mL sample of a hydrochloric acid is titrated, 22.50 mL of 0.250 M NaOH solution is required to reach the end point. What is the acid concentration in moles per liter.

To answer this item, we assume that the gases are ideal for us to be able to use the ideal gas law.
PV = nRT
where P is pressure, V is volume, n is the number of moles, R is the universal gas constant and T is the temperature (in K)

Substituting the known values,
(0.963 atm)(6.92 L) = n(0.0821 L.atm/mol.K)(298 K)
The value of n from the equation is n = 0.27237 moles

We let x and y be the number of moles of NO2 and N2O4, respectively. Given the calculated total moles above and the total mass,
x + y = 0.27237
30x + 60y = 12.55
The values of x and y are:
x = 0.126 moles
y = 0.146 moles

The mole fractions of each gases are therefore:
mole fraction of NO2 = 0.126/(0.126 + 0.146) = 0.46
mole fraction of N2O4 = 0.146/(0.126 + 0.146) = 0.54

## William cycles at a speed of 15 miles per hour. He cycles 12 miles from home to school. If he increases his cycling speed by 5 miles per hour, how mucg faster will he reach his school?

What it is asking for is a distance over time in HOURS.
It isn’t specific about the distance units so, we can assume km is OKAY to use!

Now we need to convert 190 days to hours. Let’s set up some conversion factors.

1 Day = 24 Hours

I recommend setting up conversions like the way I did above. To do so simply make the units cancel out. Similar to how 3/3 cancel out, units also cancel out in the same way. So when you are trying to figure out whether or not you divide or multiply by the conversion factor simply use this method. Say we had 190 hours, the hours unit would need to be on the bottom, and the days on top. It’d be 1/24, thus you would divide by 24.

= 4560 hours.

Now what it is asking for his a rate of distance per hour. This rate is also called speed. Remember in the statement it said how far per hour. Meaning when dividing the units should look like this:

= 0.5607

0.5607
