## What price do farmers get for the peach crops? in the third week of June, a random sample of 40 farming regions gave a sample mean of \$6.88 per basket. assume that the standard deviation is known to be \$1.92 per basket. find a 90% confidence interval for the population mean price per basket that farmers in this region get for their peach crop

Given:
Sample size, n = 40
Sample mean, xb = \$6.88
Population std. deviation, σ = \$1.92 (known)
Confidence interval = 90%

Assume normal distribution for the population.
The confidence interval is
(xb + 1.645*(σ/√n), xb – 1.645*(σ/√n)
= (6.88 + (1.645*1.92)/√40, 6.88 – (1.645*1.92)/√40)
= (7.38, 6.38)

Answer: The 90% confidence interval is (7.38, 6.38)

## Why did the people in neighboring regions learn to fear Genghis Khan’s relatively small armies?

Genghis Khan was ruthless and gruesome. His strategy was to scare people into submission. When they were scared, they would surrender easily and it would save Khan’s army much money, time and resources. however, in order to do so, Genghis would ruthlessly slaughter men, women, and children to prove his point.

## Religion plays a large part in shaping the different cultural regions of the world. Central and South Asia, East Asia, and Southeast Asia share some of the same religions and religious history, though none of them is a distinct cultural region. In what ways are the religions of these Asian regions culturally similar to one another? In what ways are the regions culturally different due to religion?

Each religion has a different culture. Many religions restrict eating certain foods, wearing certain clothes or associating with certain people. In Central Asia, Chinese religion such as Buddhism and many other religions live by certain values, whereas in South Asia such as India, there are a whole new set of different religions. These religions and their restrictions greatly separate people from each other and create socially and culturally diverse regions

## What best describes tactics used by the Arab Empire when it captured a region?A) The conquerors used Visigoth mercenaries to maintain order.B) The conquerors forced the populace to convert Islam.C) The conquerors used the region’s existing leaders as governors to collect taxes.D) The conquerors forced the populace to convert to Orthodox Christianity

B) The conquerors forced the populace to convert Islam.

Explanation:

Muslim expansion or the expansion of Islam began in the Arabian peninsula in southwestern Asia. It is the denomination that usually occurs to the military conquests or the trade reforms of the Arab Muslim civilization in which the Sassanid Empire, North Africa, and the Iberian Peninsula, including parts of the Byzantine Empire, would fall. Also included in this denomination is the influx of merchants in the Maghreb and in Africa, and missions made in the Philippines.

During the following centuries, Islam achieved several advances in other fronts, as in the rest of Central Asia, in Asia Minor, in southern Italy, in Eastern Europe, in Southeast Asia and in sub-Saharan Africa. However, all these advances were produced by different States independent of each other. While these advances were taking place, Islam was forced to retreat in Western Europe, especially by the so-called Spanish Reconquista. In the last third of the sixteenth century, a last Muslim state with universal pretensions, the Ottoman Empire, reached its maximum expansion.

## Read the following sentences from the passage. In the late 1820s, gold was discovered in the northern and central regions of Georgia. With thoughts of easy money, many European settlers came to the regions. Which is the best way to rewrite these sentences? In the late 1820s, gold was discovered in the northern and central regions of Georgia. With thoughts of easy money, these regions were settled by many Europeans. In the late 1820s, explorers discovered gold in the northern and central regions of Georgia. With thoughts of easy money, many European settlers migrated to these regions. In the late 1820s, explorers discovered gold in the northern and central regions of Georgia. With thoughts of easy money, many European settlers infiltrated to the region.

Option b. The following is the best way to rewrite the sentences:

In the late 1820s, explorers discovered gold in the northern and central regions of Georgia. With thoughts of easy money, many European settlers migrated to these regions.

Explanation:

The first comma after 1820s is used to separate the dependent clause that initiated the sentence with the rest of it. Then a full stop is used as the sentence had made a full concept that does not need further adding, instead it is time to start a new sentence that will further explain what happened after explorers discovered gold in Georgia. In this second sentence, a comma is again used to separate the two clauses that constitute the sentence.

## Which of the following regions had the lowest population increase between the years 2000 and 2010

Not sure if this is a “Select all that apply” question, because most of these could work. However, I’m going to assume the answer is easy movement on people, products, and ideas.Improve transportation has allowed better import and exports, faster transportation cross country, even around the world. At the same time, the answer could be increase greenhouse gases and increase pollution, because they release toxic fumes through exhaust. So, if it’s a Select all that apply question, i would select those three.

## Which factor most affected the balance of power and led to the start of World War I? Territorial disputes in the Balkans led the Triple Alliance to attack the Triple Entente. Economic disputes in Europe led the Triple Entente to attack the Triple Alliance. Ethnic unrest in the Balkans and Ottoman Empire caused conflict between the alliances. Uprisings in many of the colonized regions of Africa caused conflict between the alliances.

Karl Marx developed the economic theory of communism.

Further Explanation:

One of Karl Marx’s most famous contributions came in his book the Communist Manifesto. This book explained Mark’s views on government, the economy, and ultimately lead to the creation of communism as an idea.

A communism system is one that is economic and political in nature. In this system, the government would control the means of production, the distribution of goods and resources, and would overall have significant control over society. This system of communism is the opposite of the capitalist/democratic system used in America today. These two ideologies would clash during the mid 20th century in what is now known as the Cold War.

Marx’s ideas were based on his observations of the world around him. He felt that the mistreatment of labor by industry and private corporations would ultimately lead to an uprising by angry laborers all over the world.

C. Yes, because the population values appear to be normally distributed.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given is a graph which shows the distribution of values of a population

The graph has the following characteristics

i) Bell shaped

ii) symmerical about mid vertical line

iii) Unimodal with mode = median =mean

iv) As x deviates more from the mean probability is decreasing and also curve approaches asymptotically the x axis

Hence we find that the curve is a distribution of normal

Option C is right

C. Yes, because the population values appear to be normally distributed.

## How has the history of the Arabian Peninsula helped to shape the region’s culture? a. The region has been conquered multiple times, which has led to a variety of languages. c. There are a variety of Muslim sects in the region because of a historic conflict in Islam. b. The region is the birthplace of Islam, which has influenced the region’s religion. d. All of the above

For Sure:
Atmospheric or Oceanic circulation patterns: As circulatory patterns change, the change can occur with having, for example tsunami’s in a certain area while there is a drought in another. The circulatory patterns have a big impact in the amount of rain one can get from the ocean, for that is where some clouds are formed.
Volcanic Activity: Volcanic Activity has a big impact on climate change, for before an Volcanic eruption, the area surrounding the place can be peaceful, quiet, and have a certain amount of plants growing. The soil may also have become poor. However, once a volcano erupts, most plants are killed, and nutrients are returned into the soil via volcanic dust and lava.

Not so Sure, but may be:

Plate tectonics: changes in the tectonic plates CAN change, however not always. As a plate pulls away from another, it can casue earthquakes or fissures, which can damage both the land that is there and the lands around it. In the case of earthquakes, the land around it is damages, while in the case of fissures, the earth “drops away” into the core.

The moon’s gravitational pull: May be one of the not-so-well known ones but can have a great impact on earth. Without the Moon’s gravitational pull, we may not be existent on earth, as we are circling perfectly, without it being 1 milimeters closer or farther from the sun. If we were, we wouldn’t be alive today, for it would have been too hot, or way too cold.

An example is Queen Amina of Zaria, who dominated many of the Saharan trade routes and extended her kingdom as far as the Niger River. A. Benin B. Ethiopia C. Ghana D. Hausa states

The correct answer is D: States.

*When referring to the geographic delimitation of North American’s countries, the matter isn’t uniform. Some specialists in the matter state that North America spans three countries: Canada, the United States and Mexico. Others also include Central American’s countries in the delimitation. And, even others only consider the U.S. and Canada as part of North America. The following answer is based on the first delimitation given.*

The most numerous in North America are the States, which in total are 89.

• Number of States in North America: 89.

32 states in Mexico, 49 states in the United States (the U.S. has 50 states in total, however in North America are only 49 since Hawaii is geographically located in Oceania) and 10 provinces in Canada (Notice that Canada uses the term “Province” to describe its divisions).

Canada, The United States and Mexico.

North America is bounded by the Arctic Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.

New England, The Foundry, Dixie, The Breadbasket, The Islands, Mexamerica, Ecotopia, Québec and The Empty Quarter.

## How are bacteria beneficial to the body? a. they provide us with needed nutrients c. they invade sterile regions in our body b. they form biofilms d. they fight the immune system

The synthesis of protein takes place in two basic steps: transcription and translation. At the time of transcription, the information encrypted in DNA is reproduced in mRNA and the mRNA moves out of the cell’s nucleus into the cytoplasm. After this the process of protein synthesis, that is, translation takes place. The following are the steps for protein synthesis:

1. RNA polymerase unzips DNA and free RNA nucleotides join DNA to form mRNA.

2. mRNA is transported from the nucleus of the cell to the ribosomes of the cell.

3. mRNA joins the ribosome, and the anticodons from tRNA join mRNA to produce a chain of amino acids.

4. A chain of amino acids is formed from peptide bonds, creating a protein.

5. Once the protein is made, the gene for a particular trait is expressed.

A. a treaty signed to form a military alliance B. a puppet government that was supported by foreign rulers C. a military invasion that was implemented to put down revolutionary factions D. a commercial firm that exerted political and social power in colonized regions

Answer:  A fear that communists and radicals were plotting revolution in  the United States.

Explanation:

What historians refer to as the First Red Scare occurred from 1919 to 1921, following the end of World War 1 — but more so following the Bolsvhevik Revolution which brought communism to power in Russia.   The Bolsheviks (meaning “the Majority”) were the communist faction that led a successful overthrow of the regime of the tsar in Russia in 1917.   They weren’t a “majority” in Russia, but they were the dominant group within the Russian communist movement.  Civil war in Russia followed during the next years, from 1917 into the early 1920s, ultimately leading to the establishment of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1922.  There was fear in the United States (as there was elsewhere in the world) that communism would begin to spread further, beyond Russia.

The more common reference to “The Red Scare” usually refers to what historically was the Second Red Scare, from the late 1940s to late 1950s in the United States.  Following World War 2, as the Cold War developed and the Soviet Union was gathering allies, there was even greater fear — and fear-mongering — in the United States about the threat of communism.   The Second Red Scare was when  The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was created and when Senator Joseph McCarthy began a campaign of accusations against suspected communists in various sectors of American life.

## The land that was included in the Louisiana Purchase was mainly located in which of the following regions of the present-day United States? A. central United States B. Pacific Northwest C. southwestern United States D. Pacific Coast

International Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. International Women’s Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

Since those early years, International Women’s Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women’s movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women’s conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women’s rights and participation in the political and economic arenas
