When we analyze the placement of a word within a sentence, the ideas being presented around the words and utilizing our Greek and Latin roots, we are using our _____. metaphor context clues prior knowledge critical thinking skills


This answer is obviously not “prior knowledge” because we are not robots. The question is asking what are the ideas being presented around the words called. I also had this question in my english lesson,and the correct answer is context clues. Also the word context clues is pretty self explanatory.

How did jazz spread from its roots in the 1920s?


I am pleased to share with you this unclassified version of a new National Intelligence Estimate on the reemergence of the threat from infectious diseases worldwide and its implications for the United States.

This report represents an important initiative on the part of the Intelligence Community to consider the national security dimension of a nontraditional threat. It responds to a growing concern by senior US leaders about the implications–in terms of health, economics, and national security–of the growing global infectious disease threat. The dramatic increase in drug-resistant microbes, combined with the lag in development of new antibiotics, the rise of megacities with severe health care deficiencies, environmental degradation, and the growing ease and frequency of cross-border movements of people and produce have greatly facilitated the spread of infectious diseases.

In June 1996, President Clinton issued a Presidential Decision Directive calling for a more focused US policy on infectious diseases. The State Department’s Strategic Plan for International Affairs lists protecting human health and reducing the spread of infectious diseases as US strategic goals, and Secretary Albright in December 1999 announced the second of two major U.S. initiatives to combat HIV/AIDS. The unprecedented UN Security Council session devoted exclusively to the threat to Africa from HIV/AIDS in January 2000 is a measure of the international community’s concern about the infectious disease threat.

As part of this new US Government effort, the National Intelligence Council produced this National Intelligence Estimate. It examines the most lethal diseases globally and by region; develops alternative scenarios about their future course; examines national and international capacities to deal with them; and assesses their national and global social, economic, political, and security impact. It then assesses the infectious disease threat from international sources to the United States; to US military personnel overseas; and to regions in which the United States has or may develop significant equities.

P(x)=x^5+6x^3+5x^2+30 what is the real number roots of p and how many distinct, real number roots does p have.


Answer:

Option C – BD=76 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : You are designing a diamond-shaped kite. you know that AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm, and AC = 84.8 cm.

To find : How long BD should it be?

Solution :

First we draw a rough diagram.

The given sides were AD = 44.8 cm, DC = 72 cm and AC = 84.8 cm.

According to properties of kite

Two disjoint pairs of consecutive sides are congruent.

So, AD=AB=44.8 cm

DC=BC=72 cm

The diagonals are perpendicular.

So, AC ⊥ BD

Let O be the point where diagonal intersect let let the partition be x and y.

AC= AO+OC

AC=  x+y=84.8 …….[1]

Perpendicular bisect the diagonal BD into equal parts let it be z.

BD=BO+OD

BD=z+z

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔAOD

where H=AD=44.8 ,P= AO=x , B=OD=z

H^2=P^2+B^2

(44.8)^2=x^2+z^2  ………[2]

Applying Pythagorean theorem in ΔCOD

where H=DC=72 ,P= OC=y , B=OD=z

H^2=P^2+B^2

(72)^2=y^2+z^2 …………[3]

Subtract [2] and [3]

(72)^2-(44.8)^2=y^2+z^2-x^2-z^2

5184-2007.04=(x+y)(x-y)

3176.96=(84.8)(x-y)

37.464=x-y ……….[4]

Add equation [1] and [4], to get values of x and y

x+y+x-y=84.8+37.464

2x=122.264

x=61.132

Substitute x in [1]

x+y=84.8

61.132+y=84.8

y=23.668

Substitute value of x in equation [2], to get z

(44.8)^2=x^2+z^2

(44.8)^2=(23.668)^2+z^2

2007.04-560.174224=z^2

z=sqrt{1446.865776}

z=38.06

We know, BD=z+z

BD= 38.06+38.06

BD= 76.12

Nearest to whole number BD=76 cm

Therefore, Option c – BD=76 cm is correct.

The quadratic equation whose roots are the am and hm between the roots of the equation 2×2 – 3x+5=0


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

d=sqrt{(c-a)^2+(d-b)^2}.

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

d=sqrt{(x-8)^2+(y-9)^2}.

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

d = 10.

Therefore,

10=sqrt{(x-8)^2+(y-9)^2}.

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.

Tommy, in an effort to maintain clowning’s positive roots, invite dancers to weekly performance battles. How should the sentence above be rewritten to correct the subject-verb agreement error?


Here we can observe that the verb used doesn’t reflect the correct tense to express when this action took/is taking/will take place. There are many tenses where you could choose from, depending of the time of action:

Tenses: Simple, Progressive, Perfect, Perfect progressive
Times: Past, Present, and Future

Imagine all the combinations!

The simplest example we could make is if this action is a routine that happens continuously, the action verb (invite) is changed to simple present for the third person of singular (invites): 

Tommy, in an effort to maintain clowning’s positive roots, invites dancers to weekly performance battles.

The graph shows the system of equations that can be used to solve x^3+x^2=x-1.Which statement describes the roots of this equation?


Answered by answersmine AT 20/10/2019 – 03:05 AM

Answer:

Equation has 1 real root and 2 complex roots.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : x^{3} +x^{2} =  x -1.

To find : Which statement describes the roots of this equation.

Solution : We have x^{3} +x^{2} =  x -1.

We can write it as  x^{3} +x^{2} - x -1.

Graphs of both these functions shows one common point, this means that the equation x^{3} +x^{2} =  x -1 has one real solution (approximately, x≈-1.839).

But degree is 3 .

So, it has maximum 3 root.

Therefore, Equation has 1 real root and 2 complex roots.

Solve the system below using any method: X+2y=1 5x-4y=-23

I’ll use substitute method.
x + 2y = 1. (1)
5x – 4y = -23. (2)

from 1,
x = 1 – 2y. (3)
then I’ll substitute (3) into 2,
5(1-2y) – 4y = -23. (this way we only need to calculate y, as x is isolated out)
5 – 10y – 4y = -23
5 – 14y = -23
-14y = -28
y = 2

now we can substitute y = 2 back into (3)
x = 1- 2(2)
x = -3
therefore we get that x is -3 and y is 2.

What is the solution to this system of equations? X=12-y 2x+3y=29

You can use substitution to solve this.
Let’s look at the 2nd equation. 2x+3y=29.
In the first equation, we know that x=12-y. So, substitute that in for the 2nd equation. Do that and we have 2(12-y)+3y=29.
Distribute the 2.
24-2y+3y=29.
Combine like terms.
24+1y=29
Subtract the 24, then subtract on the other side of the equation too.
24-24=0, 29-24=5
So now we know that y=5.
Substitute this for the first equation now to find x.
x=12-5
x=7
Final answer: (7,5) or x=7 y=5

Which of the following best explains why deforestation increases the risk of floods in an area? a. Tree leaves catch and retain rain water. b. Trees block the free flow of water. c. Deforestation increases precipitation. d. Tree roots improve soil water retention.

Velocity of the boat relative to the stream = b

Velocity ot the boat downstream = b + 8

Velocity of the boat upstream = b – 8

v = d / t => t = d / v

Time downstream = 80 /  [b + 8]

Time upstream = 80 / [b – 8]

Total time 80 / [b + 8] + 80 / [b – 8] = 17/3 … [ I converted 5 h + 20 m to 1/

 hours]

Now you have to solve

 80 / [b + 8] + 80 / [b – 8] = 17/3

80[b – 8] + 80[b + 8] = [17/3](b+8)(b-8)

Divide by 80

b – 8 + b + 8 = [17/(80*3)] (b^2 – 64)

2b = [17/240]b^2 – 64*17/240

0.0708b^2 -2b – 4.53333 = 0

Use the quadratic formula to solve. You will obtain b = – 2.11 and b = 30.36

Only the positve result make sense. Then the answer is b = 30.36 mph.

Let’s verify that that result is coherent:

Downstream velocity = 30.36 + 8 = 38.36 mi / h
Downstream time = 80mi / 38.36 mi/h = 2.085 h

Upstream velocity = 30.36 – 8 = 22.36 mi / h
Upstream time = 80 mi / 22.36 mi/h = 3.578 h

Total time = 2.085 h + 3.578 h = 5.663 h, which is 5 h + 20 min; then, the result is correct.
