The length of the base of a rectangular pyramid is tripled, the width of the base remains the same, and the height of the pyramid is divided by 7. What volume formula reflects these changes?

Answer with Step-by-step explanation:

The volume of a rectangular pyramid is given by:

V=lbh/3

Where l is the length

b is the breath

and h is the height.

Now, l’,b’ and h’ be new length,breath and height

Then, l’=3l

b’=b

and h’=h/7

New volume=V’=l’b’h’/3

=

=

Hence, Volume formula which reflects these changes is:

Why is an ecosystem’s net primary production (NPP) lower than its gross primary production (GPP)? A.NPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers. B.NPP reflects the gain of oxygen due to respiration by the primary producers. C.GPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers.

Hi. I think it would be A. Heres how NPP and GPP work:

NPP stands for net primary productivity and GPP means gross primary productivity. GPP is basically the entire amount that an ecosystem or area has. NPP is the amount minus the amount lost to the environment. You might already know that as you go up the food chain energy is lost in respiration and doesn’t get absorbed by the thing that eats it. Therefore, the NPP=GPP-lost energy.

If you have any questions about this please comment 🙂 sorry if this was unclear at all.

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.

At the end of chapter 2 of The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Ivan Ilyich reflects on the divide between work and family. To him, work always comes first, and family is what he tries to avoid. In chapters1–4 of his novella, how does Tolstoy portray Ivan Ilyich’s priorities in life? Based on what you have learned about Leo Tolstoy, would he agree with Ivan Ilyich’s priorities? Use textual evidence to support your response.

Answer:Leo Tolstoy wrote the novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich to criticize the emerging middle class of modern Russia in the nineteenth century. Ivan Ilyich, his family, and his friends are part of this budding middle class. Tolstoy’s aim in writing this novella was to criticize the thoughts and the approach of middle class people toward their families, their jobs, and society. He used the life of Ivan Ilyich to demonstrate all the aspects of the middle class that he believed were wrong. Tolstoy portrays Ivan Ilyich as a man whose life decisions are based on social acceptance. He chooses his friends and even his wife based on their social standing. When he starts to find his family life unpleasant because of his wife’s constant nagging, he limits his interactions with the whole family. Instead, he seeks comfort in his work. He assumes a formal relationship with his family members, particularly his wife. This change in his feelings and attitude toward his family does not seem strange to him. On the contrary, getting away from his family becomes his life goal:

This aloofness might have grieved Ivan Ilyich had he considered that it ought not to exist, but he now regarded the position as normal, and even made it the goal at which he aimed in family life.

Tolstoy deplored the middle-class habit of maintaining distance with family members in private but keeping up appearances of closeness for the public. Tolstoy shows his character Ivan Ilyich making the effort to maintain this detachment from his family members while ensuring that his family appears on the outside to be a regular and happy family. Even when he has to be at home with his family, he makes sure that they have guests. That way, he can avoid confrontations or meaningful discussions with his family:

His aim was to free himself more and more from those unpleasantnesses and to give them a semblance of harmlessness and propriety. He attained this by spending less and less time with his family, and when obliged to be at home he tried to safeguard his position by the presence of outsiders.

Ilyich’s work soon becomes an obsession, and everything else, including his family is secondary to his job:

The chief thing however was that he had his official duties. The whole interest of his life now centered in the official world and that interest absorbed him.

Through Ivan Ilyich, Tolstoy portrayed a class of people who make determined efforts to escape human contact and suffering by seemingly living in denial. They are people who run away from love and relationships, and they are unwilling to reflect on their lives. Instead, they choose to exist in their self-centered world until they are jolted into reality. In Ivan Ilyich’s case, this jolt comes in the form of his illness in chapter 4.

Tolstoy would not have agreed with Ivan Ilyich’s priorities. Unlike Ivan, Tolstoy looked inward throughout his adult life. He searched for a deeper meaning and purpose, especially in regard to his political and religious ideals. While those ideals eventually caused Tolstoy to avoid his wife, he generally had a close relationship with his family. By all accounts, he seemed very much a man who loved and cherished his wife and their 10 children. While Tolstoy was dedicated to his writing, his family seemed to inspire him, rather than get in the way of his literary genius. His wife was involved in his work, having transcribed most of his writing. Even Tolstoy’s last days were spent on a pilgrimage that he embarked on with his youngest daughter.

What is the transformation that occurs to the parent function y =(1/2)^x power if the equation changes to y =(1/2)^-x? A. The graph moves 1 unit up. B. The graph reflects across the y-axis. C. The graph reflects across the x-axis. D. The graph moves 1 unit down.

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.

The historian Procopius attributes this speech to Theodora. She supposedly said it to Justinian when he wanted to flee from the Nika Riots. “Now if you wish to save yourself, O Emperor, this is not hard. For we have much money; there is the sea, here are the boats. But think whether after you have been saved you may not come to feel that you would have preferred to die. As for me, I like a certain old proverb that says: royalty is a good shroud (burial garment).” —History of the Wars, Procopius Which of the following reflects Theodora’s attitude about dealing with the Nika Riots? It is too dangerous to flee the rioters. It is shameful for an emperor to flee the rioters. It is politically savvy to flee the rioters. It is honorable for an emperor to flee the rioters.

The correct answer is A. As a result of the Embargo Act, British and French merchants suffered because they sold fewer goods.

Explanation:

The Embargo Act of 1807 sought to restrict foreign trade on the American coast. The act was passed by Congress during the second administration of President Thomas Jefferson.

It originated as a result of the Chesapeake-Leopard Affair involving the British warship Leopard and the American frigate Chesapeake, that was caused by a British ban on American commerce with France. The two European countries were at war (Napoleonic Wars), while the United States had remained neutral, but traded in secret with both sides.

According to Jefferson, the British violated the rights of Americans on the high seas and the embargo laws were passed in retaliation. These measures caused great damage to the American Economy, that of an export of \$ 108 million in 1807, went to \$ 22 million in 1808. The acts were repealed even at the end of the Jefferson administration. A modified version would come back with the restrictions during a brief period of 1813, in the administration of James Madison, that replaced Jefferson.

In jane eyre, which theme reflects a philosophical assumption charlotte bronte holds

The correct answers are:

C. If we were left solely to the wordy wit of legislators in Congress for our guidance, uncorrected by the seasonable experience and the effectual complaints of the people, America would not long retain her rank among the nations.

D. Even the Chinese philosopher was wise enough to regard the individual as the basis of the empire.

E. There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.

David Thoreau’s “The Civil Disobedience” emphasizes the need to prioritize the conscience of individuals over what laws dictate them to do. He defends and tries to encourage citizens to institute a better government, a government that respects individuals. To do so, Thoreau defends that the government is formed by the people and for the people, this way, when a government abuses its powers people have the right to regain power.

Thoreau refused to submit himself to regulations and taxes that were imposed by the government, he believed that they were unfair to him and all Americans.

He deemed vegetarianism to be a foolish and unhealthy fad. C. He believed wars should only be fought if a greater good is at stake. D. He thought that capitalism, as an economic system, is highly problematic.

25. The incorrectly punctuated sentence is the third option. This is because the comma is unnecessary and chops up the sentence. You should only put a comma before a conjunction (words like and, but, or) when there is a list (like in the last option) or when the words following the conjunction include a noun and verb (like the second option).

26. The correctly punctuated sentence is the second option. With dates specifically, there will always be a comma between the day and year (canceling out the first and third options), and if the sentence continues after the year, then there needs to be a comma after the year (which cancels out the last option).
