Read this excerpt from Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death” and answer the question that follows. Here the case was very different, as might have been expected from the duke’s love of the bizarre. The apartments were so irregularly disposed that the vision embraced but little more than one at a time. There was a sharp turn at every twenty or thirty yards, and at each turn a novel effect. To the right and left, in the middle of each wall, a tall and narrow Gothic window looked out upon a closed corridor which pursued the windings of the suite. These windows were of stained glass whose colour varied in accordance with the prevailing hue of the decorations of the chamber into which it opened. That at the eastern extremity was hung, for example in blue—and vividly blue were its windows. The second chamber was purple in its ornaments and tapestries, and here the panes were purple. The third was green throughout, and so were the casements. The fourth was furnished and lighted with orange—the fifth with white—the sixth with violet. The seventh apartment was closely shrouded in black velvet tapestries that hung all over the ceiling and down the walls, falling in heavy folds upon a carpet of the same material and hue. . . .And thus were produced a multitude of gaudy and fantastic appearances. What kind of writing does the excerpt represent?

The answer should be D. Argumentative! It makes an argument that also persuades you in a different way but only of the sense that this time it is knocking what argument you made down. Have a good rest of your day!

There are 42 boys and girls participating in an essay-writing competition. Of the competitors, 21 are in seventh grade, 14 are in eighth grade, and 7 are in ninth grade. What is the probability of an eighth grader winning the competition? Which simulation(s) can be used to represent this situation?

[ad_1]

You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

 = 47,129,212,243,960 different ways the qualifiying round of 30 competitors can be selected from the 50 competitors.

March 4, 1933, was perhaps the Great Depression’s darkest hour. The stock market had plunged 85% from its high in 1929, and nearly one-fourth of the workforce was unemployed. In the cities, jobless men were lining up for soup and bread. In rural areas, farmers whose land was being foreclosed were talking openly of revolution. The crowd that gathered in front of the Capitol that day to watch Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Inauguration had all but given up on America. They were, a reporter observed, “as silent as a group of mourners around a grave.”
Roosevelt’s Inaugural Address was a pitch-perfect combination of optimism (“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”), consolation (the nation’s problems “concern, thank God, only material things”) and resolve (“This nation asks for action, and action now”). The speech won rave reviews. Even the rock-ribbed Republican Chicago Tribune lauded its “dominant note of courageous confidence.” F.D.R. had buoyed the spirits of the American people — and nearly 500,000 of them wrote to him at the White House in the following week to tell him so.
Hours after the Inauguration, Roosevelt made history in a more behind-the-scenes way. He gathered his Cabinet in his White House office and had Justice Benjamin Cardozo swear them in as a group, the first time that had ever been done. F.D.R. joked that he was doing it so they could “receive an extra day’s pay,” but the real reason was that he wanted his team to get to work immediately.
And that team came through brilliantly. In the next 100 days — O.K., 105, but who’s counting? — his Administration shepherded 15 major bills through Congress. It was the most intense period of lawmaking ever undertaken by Congress — a “presidential barrage of ideas and programs,” historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. observed, “unlike anything known to American history.”

She asks all 22 students in her science class and finds that 40% of her classmates enjoy watching reality TV shows. She claims that 40% of the school’s student population would be expected to enjoy watching reality TV shows. Is Carla making a valid inference about her population? No, it is not a valid inference because she asked all 22 students in her science class instead of taking a sample from her music class No, it is not a valid inference because she asked all 22 students in her science class instead of taking a sample of the students in her school Yes, it is a valid inference because she asked all 22 students in her science class Yes, it is a valid inference because her classmates make up a random sample of the students in the school

Answer:

60 feet

Step-by-step explanation:

The area of the school is

165(300) = 49500 square feet.

The area of the parking lot with the school is

(165+75)(300+75) = 240(375) = 90000 square feet.  This means the area of just the parking lot is

90000-49500 = 40500 square feet.

The area of the new expanded lot will be doubled; this means it will be

2(40500) = 81000 square feet.  Adding back the area of the school, this means the total lot will be

81000+49500 = 130500 square feet.

The width will be 375+x and the length will be 240+x; this gives us

130500 = (375+x)(240+x)

Multiplying the binomials gives us

130500 = 90000+375x+240x+x²

130500 = 90000+615x+x²

To solve this, we first set it equal to 0.  We do this by subtracting 130500 from each side:

130500-130500 = 90000+615x+x²-130500

0 = x²+615x-40500

We will use the quadratic formula:

x=frac{-bpm sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}

Substituting our values for a, b and c,

x=frac{-615pm sqrt{615^2-4(1)(-40500)}}{2(1)}\\=frac{-615pm sqrt{378225--162000}}{2}\\=frac{-615pm sqrt{378225+162000}}{2}\\=frac{-615pm sqrt{540225}}{2}\\=frac{-615pm 735}{2}\\=frac{-615+735}{2}text{ or }frac{-615-735}{2}\\=frac{120}{2}text{ or }frac{-1350}{2}\\=60text{ or }-675

We do not use negative numbers for measurement, so x = 60.
