## Which of the following items could serve as a primary source for a historian studying the American Civil War? A. A journal written by a Civil War soldier describing a major battle B. A map of important Civil War battles printed in a military history textbook C. A documentary film describing important Civil War generals D. An essay about Civil War soldiers written by a modern graduate student

The correct option is A.
There are two basic sources which an author can draw from when writing an article. The first one is primary source and this refers to an account of an event or history by a person who actually witness the event or the person who experience the event directly. The second one is secondary source and it refers to those accounts of events that are drawn from primary sources.
Thus, a journal account about civil war by a civil war soldier who experienced the war is considered a primary source.

## The weights of certain machine components are normally distributed with a mean of 8.5 g and a standard deviation of 0.09 g. Find the two weights that separate the top 3% and the bottom 3%. These weights could serve as limits used to identify which components should be rejected. Round to the nearest hundredth of a gram.

To solve this problem,lets say that

X = the weight of the machine components.
X is normally distributed with mean=8.5 and sd=0.09

We need to find x1 and x2 such that
P(X<x1)=0.03 and P(X>x2)=0.03

Standardizing:

P( Z< (x1 – 8.5)/0.09 ) =0.03
P(Z > (x2 – 8.5)/0.09 ) =0.03.

From the Z standard table, we can see that approximately P
= 0.03 is achieved when Z equals to:

z = -1.88          and      z= 1.88

Therefore,

P(Z<-1.88)=0.03 and P(Z>1.88)=0.03

So,

(x1 – 8.5)/0.09 = -1.88 and
(x2 – 8.5)/0.09 =1.88

Solving for x1 and x2:

x1=-1.88(0.09) + 8.5   and
x2=1.88(0.09) + 8.5

Which yields:

x1 = 8.33 g

x2 = 8.67 g

Answer: The bottom 3 is separated by the weight
8.33 g and the top 3 by the weight 8.67 g.

The Contribution Margin per unit (CM) can be calculated
from the difference of Selling Price per unit (SP) and Total Expenses per unit
(TE).

First, let’s calculate the value of SP:

SP = Sales / Units sold

SP = \$1,043,400 / 22,200 units sold

SP = \$47

Second, calculate all expenses:

Direct materials per unit = \$234,948 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$8.4

Direct labor per unit = \$131,459 / 27,970 units
manufactured = \$4.7

Variable manufacturing overhead per unit = \$240,542 / 27,970
units manufactured = \$8.6

Variable selling expenses per unit = \$113,220 / 22,200
units sold = \$5.1

TE = \$26.8

Therefore the CM is:

CM = SP – TE

CM = \$47 – \$26.8

CM = \$20.2 per unit

## Identify the words that serve as context clues for the term mercenaries.

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂

## Why plants have specialized organelles animals and bacteria do not. Do those organelles serve a special function not needed in the other organisms?

Explanation:

Organic compounds are defined as the chemical compounds where one or more carbon atoms are covalently bonded to other atoms of hydrogen, oxygen or nitrogen.

They occur naturally in nature and the main sources of these organic compounds are petroleum, coal and natural gases.

Petroleum are the naturally occurring substances which contain organic compounds in the form of gases, liquid or semi-solid. Thus, they are a major source of organic compound.

Coal is also a form of fossil fuel which are the major source of organic compound.

Natural gas contains hydrocarbons and also is the major source of organic compounds.

Thus, the correct answer is all of these.

## Read this paragraph from The Dark Game. It may seem surprising that no Confederate sympathizers took action against Van Lew, given her strong and public views on secession and slavery. Surely there were suspicions, especially among her upper-crust neighbors, but the matter never went beyond those suspicions. Historians have suggested that the secessionists were victims of their own cultural bias, believing that no aristocratic person, and certainly not a lady, would ever consider taking part in anything as impolite as spying. A true lady managed her servants, prepared parties and gatherings, and blindly supported her husband. Such attitudes worked in Van Lew’s favor, diverting suspicion from her. What central idea is implied in this paragraph? A-Elizabeth Van Lew did not follow the rules society set forth for ladies of her time and social class. B-Elizabeth Van Lew was a successful spy because society did not expect a lady to serve in that role. C-Elizabeth Van Lew was able to disguise her spying activities because she kept her views about the war to herself. D-Elizabeth Van Lew created for herself an untrue but believable cover story: she was a wealthy lady living in a fancy neighborhood.

## If two pounds of meat will serve 5 people how many pounds will be needed to serve 13 people

Remark: the fence is clearly 420 yards, not 420420.

check the picture

The 2 adjacent rectangles (corrals) form one larger rectangle.

as shown in the figure, let x be the length of the fences perpendicular to the river, then the length of the side opposite to the river will be 420- 2x (yard)

so we can write the following function, which calculates the area A enclosed by the fence, as a function of x.

A(x)=2x(420-2x)

clearly A is a quadratic function, its graph is a parabola. This parabola looks downwards because of the minus of the term -2x

from A(x)=2x(420-2x) we can find that the x intercepts of the parabola are:

one of the roots is x=0

and

420-2x=0,
2x=420
x=210 is the other root.

The x coordinate of the vertex is the midpoint of (0, 210), that is 210/2=105

f(105)=2*105(420-2*105)=210*(420-210=2110*210=44,100 square yard.

the highest point of the parabola is the largest value the function takes, so the maximal area of the fence.

Answer: max area= 44,100 square yard.

## After FDR, who was the first Democratic president to serve two full terms?​

1- The correct answer is B, as one result of the Great Society was that the lives of many underprivileged Americans improved.

The Great Society was a set of US national reform programs announced by President Lyndon B. Johnson for the first time in a speech at Ohio University on May 7, 1964 and more fully illustrated on May 22, 1964 at the University of Michigan. These reform programs were subsequently presented to the Congress of the United States and largely approved during the 1960s, thanks to the consent of its supporters of the Democratic Party.

Two main goals of social reforms were the elimination of poverty and racial injustice. During this period new large spending programs were launched in the fields of education, medical care, urban problems and transport. Johnson’s “Great Society” was linked, in its objectives and policies, to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal program.

Some proposals of the Great Society resumed initiatives contained in the New Frontier program, interrupted by the tragic death of President John F. Kennedy. Johnson’s success in promoting and endorsing his reforms depended on his considerable congressional political influence, his persuasion, and the favorable historical circumstances resulting from the 1964 presidential elections, which allowed the Democratic Party to dominate Congress and to elect the House of Representatives with the largest number of exponents of the liberal current since 1938.

The evolution of the Vietnam war and the massive involvement of the American military machine in the conflict, however, partly undermined the success of the “Great Society” program. Growing, huge expenditures for the continuation of the war made more difficult to finance the reform programs. Representatives of the Democratic Party against the war in Vietnam complained that military spending decisively stifled the Great Society program. On the whole, however, despite growing political and economic difficulties, which forced the administration to eliminate or reduce the financing of some projects, President Johnson managed to activate a series of programs of great importance, including Medicare, Medicaid, the Older Americans Act and the federal education funding, which are still active.

2- The correct answer is C, as the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was necessary because the previous existing American immigration policies were discriminatory.

On October 3, 1965, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the law into effect, saying: “The [old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle according to which the valuation and reward of each man should be established on the basis of his merits as a man. It has been anti-American in the highest sense, because it has been unfaithful to the faith that led thousands to these shores, even before we were a country. ”

If the committee will consist of 3 councillors and either 1 or 2 planning staff, how many different committees could the council choose?

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.

“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.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that one of the only ways individuals will accomplish the objectives in each of his six stages was to participate in “consensus democracy” in small group settings.

Lawrence Kohlberg felt that the best way to support development through these stages was by discourse of good problems and by investment in consensus democracy inside small groups. Consensus democracy was rule by understanding of the gathering, not larger part rule. This would invigorate and widen the reasoning of youngsters and grown-ups, enabling them to advance starting with one phase then onto the next.

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.

Americans will pay more for goods produced in Mexico in 2011.

Explanation:

This is a situation of devaluation of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso. If in 2009 the dollar was worth 16 pesos, but in 2011 it is 14, it means that the purchasing power of the dollar in relation to the Mexican peso has decreased, although it is still high.

In that case, for an American to buy products produced in Mexico in 2011, he or she will spend a little more dollars than he or she would spend in 2009. This is common, since the currencies fluctuate according to the financial market . Thus, the dollar can be valued or devalued, as happened in this example.

If, for example, in 2015 the dollar will buy 20 pesos, it will mean that the dollar appreciated in relation to the peso, increasing the purchasing power of Americans for Mexican products.

Rates. This is calculated using the formula:

Overhead Allocation Rates = MOC / T

Overhead Allocation Rate (A) = \$160,000 / 30,000 machine
hours

Allocation Rate (A) = \$5.33 per machine hour

Overhead Allocation Rate (B) = \$360,000 / 21,000 labor

When a ray of light falls on a smooth and polished surface, then after striking it bounce back into the same medium, it is called reflection.

There are two types of reflection.

1. Regular or specular reflection: When some parallel rays incident on the smooth surface then after reelection, the reflected rays are also parallel to to each other, it is called regular reflection. In case of mirrors, the regular reflection takes place.

2. Diffused reflection: When some parallel rays falls on rough and unpolished surface, then after reflection, they are not parallel to each other.

The angle of incidence is 45 degree, in case of diffused reflection , the angle of reflection is some where between 0 degree and 180 degree.
