“That you want us to call him Nikhil.” “That is correct.” Mrs. Lapidus nods. “The reason being?” “That is our wish.” “I’m not sure I follow you, Mr. Ganguli. Do you mean that Nikhil is a middle name? Or a nickname? Many of the children go by nicknames here. On this form there is a space—” “No, no, it’s not a middle name,” Ashoke says. He is beginning to lose patience. “He has no middle name. No nickname. The boy’s good name, his school name, is Nikhil.” Mrs. Lapidus presses her lips together and smiles. “But clearly he doesn’t respond.” “Please, Mrs. Lapidus,” Ashoke says. “It is very common for a child to be confused at first. Please give it some time. I assure you he will grow accustomed.” Which statement best explains how Lahiri explores conflict brought on by globalization? 1.Lahiri uses descriptions to compare elements of traditional schooling in different cultures. 2.Lahiri uses the characters’ actions to show how people from different cultures can work together to resolve conflicting values. 3.Lahiri uses the setting to highlight her opinions on the educational systems in both the United States and India. 4.Lahiri uses dialogue to show how people from different cultures can have difficulty relating to each other’s experiences.

The answer is D. Lahiri want’s to bring attention to how much cultural tension there is between an Indian transfer student and a typical American school. In this  example the conflict isn’t between the child and the teacher: but the communication barrier they have over his name.

A construction crew is lengthening a road. The road started with a length of 59 miles, and the crew is adding 3 miles to the road each day. Let L represent the total length of the road (in miles), and let D represent the number of days the crew has worked. Write an equation relating L to D . Then use this equation to find the total length of the road after the crew has worked 34 days. Equation: Total length of the road after 34 days: ____miles

Owners of a recreation area are filling a small pond with water. They are adding water at a rate of 25 liters per minute. There are 400 liters in the pond to start. Let W represent the total amount of water in the pond (in liters), and let T represent the total number of minutes that water has been added. Write an equation relating W to T . Then use this equation to find the total amount of water after 14 minutes. Equation: Total amount of water after 14 minutes: liters

Mai is putting money into a savings account. She starts with \$350 in the savings account, and each week she adds \$60 . Let S represent the total amount of money in the savings account (in dollars), and let W represent the number of weeks Mai has been adding money. Write an equation relating S to W . Then use this equation to find the total amount of money in the savings account after 12 weeks. Equation: Total amount of money after 12 weeks: \$

S=60w+ 350. Because you get \$60 times the amount of weeks,plus the first \$350 she started with. She ends up with \$1070 dollars because \$60 x 12= 720, then you add the first \$350 and get \$1070. Hope this helped.

___________ efficiency is gaining the most output with a given amount of input, but not relating output to consumer utility.

Depreciation=(equipment cost-salvage value)/useful life

Depreciation=(16,950−4,200)÷6
=2,125 per year

Book value after 3 years
=16,950−2,125×3
=10,575

Now find the amount of depreciation to be charged against the equipment during each of the remaining years of its useful life
Depreciation=(equipment cost-salvage value)/useful life

Depreciation=(10,575−1,695)÷3
=2,960
