## Which excerpt from “The Man to Send Rain Clouds” best illustrates how Leon’s beliefs differ from those of Father Paul? “Well, I’m glad you understand. I hope I’ll be seeing you at Mass this week—we missed you last Sunday. See if you can get old Teofilo to come with you.” The priest smiled and waved at them as they drove away. Leon walked toward the old man’s bed. The red plaid shawl had been shaken and spread carefully over the bed, and a new brown flannel shirt and pair of stiff new Levi’s were arranged neatly beside the pillow. It was noontime now because the church bells rang the Angelus. They ate the beans with hot bread, and nobody said anything until after Teresa poured the coffee. Leon turned to look up at the high blue mountains in the deep snow that reflected a faint red light from the west. He felt good because it was finished, and he was happy about the sprinkling of the holy water; now the old man could send them big thunderclouds for sure.

Answer: D) Bountiful harvests, to suggest Gant’s agricultural success.

Explanation: In the given excerpt we can see many sensorial details like “His grape vines thickened into brawny ropes of brown” and “And the flowers grew in rioting glory in his yard—the velvet-leaved nasturtium, slashed with a hundred tawny dyes”, these sensorial details about Gant’s harvests helps to create an image of abundance, and products of great quality, which demonstrates Gant’s agricultural success.

## Marissa researched the cost to have custom T-shirts printed by several local and online vendors. She found that each store’s charge for the job could be modeled by a linear function that combined a flat charge for artwork with a per T-shirt rate. Marissa plotted the functions on a coordinate grid and found that two of the functions produced lines that had the same y-intercept. How should Marissa interpret this result? A:Those two vendors charge the same rate per shirt. B:Those two vendors charge the same flat rate for artwork. C:Those two vendors will have the same total cost to produce one shirt. D:Those two vendors will charge the same total cost for any size job.

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.

## You are going shopping and you plan to buy 3 new pairs of pants, 2 new shirts, and a pair of boots. The total cost of this shopping trip can be represented by the expression 3p + 2s + b where p stands for the cost of each pair of pants, s stands for the cost of each shirt, and b stands for the cost of the boots. If each pair of pants cost \$39.99, each shirt costs \$17.89, and the boots cost \$49, what is the total cost of the shopping trip? Show Work Here: Final answer here:

The correct answer to the question: What is the moral dilemma that the author faces in “Dairy 33”, from The Freedom Writers Diary, by Erin Gruwell and the Freedom Writers, would be: She must decide between remaining loyal to her family and telling the truth.

Explanation:

“The Freedom Writers Diary” and the “Freedom Writers”, are both a teaching strategy turned to literature, and a literary movement, that was started by educator Erin Gruwell, after she faced the terrible ordeal of ethnical and racial hatred in the U.S in 1992-1994. As a new teacher at Wilson High School, in Long Beach, California, she faces a group of students who are victims of the terror of ethnic segregation and discrimination, and gang violence. She also faces a group of students who, given their social and economical circumstances, are fulfilling their own prophecies of academic failure. But Ms. Gruwell does not give up and starts a project by exposing her students to the horrors of ethnic and racial hatred  through the stories of others who have experienced them, especially Anne Frank, and Zlata Filipovic. She also encourages her students to start a writing project through which these students are able to start making sense of their lives, and become empowered to change and find better chances. The project has grown, and became famous, and now they are known as the “Freedom Writers” and the writing project became a series of journal entries, known as “Freedom Writers Diary”.

## Eight identical shirts cost a total of \$152. how much does one shirt cost?

Ursula can make two batches (2) of brownies with fraction 1 over 2 cup of butter.

Step-by-step explanation:

A fraction of 1 over 2 is .

A fraction of 1 over 4 is .

Ursula has cup of butter available to make brownies, and we know that she uses cup of butter to make a batch of brownies.

We are obviously dealing here with fractions, and we have to remember:

• How to divide two fractions.
• If we compare two fractions with the same numerator, the fraction with the smaller denominator is the largest one.

Therefore, is larger than .

### Part A

How many batches of brownies can Ursula make with fraction 1 over 2 cup of butter?

Because Ursula uses cup of butter to make a batch of brownies, and she has cup of butter, then she needs to know how many times does fit into (we already know that is larger than ), or

÷ which is , or, equivalently:

.

That is, there are two into . So, if Ursula can make one batch of brownies with cup of butter, then she can make two batches of brownies with two cup of butter.

We can see that two is , which gives us the total of butter available or .

Then, the answer is that Ursula can make two batches of brownies with the cup of butter available.

### Part B

There is a sketch as an attachment of the total of butter that Ursula has to make brownies (see below) labeled Making a Batch of Brownies.

We can divide the cup of butter into four equal parts. Each part is equivalent to of the total of butter available. In other words, we divided the cup of butter into four equal parts.

We also know that Ursula has cup of butter available, and we can appreciate from the sketch that she only has two or two quarters of butter, which is equivalent to or a half of a cup of butter, because .

So, she can make two batches of brownies with the available butter because she uses cup of butter to make each one, which confirms the result obtained in the Part A.

## The sales tax rate in Linda’s state is 5%. How much tax does she have to pay on the shirt that cost \$29? Show work please.

Option C) Students in Class 1 took less time to complete the test than students in Class 2, and their times were more variable

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that median time of class 1 is 37 and range is 8 minutes

This implies the time has minimum as 33 and maximum as 41.

Median time for class 2 is 45 with range 4 minutes

This implies minimum time for class 2 is 43 and maximum time is 47.

On comparing we find that class 1 took less time to complete the test than students in class 1

But since there is more difference i.e. range is double for class I as that of class II there is more variability in class I than II.

C Students in Class 1 took less time to complete the test than students in Class 2, and their times were more variable

## Neela is buying shirts that are on sale at two for the price of one. the original price of each shirt was s dollars. she buys 4 shirts for \$24. which equation shows an equality between two different ways of writing how much neela spends on the shirts?

Step-by-step explanation:  Given that two triangles have equal perimeters.

As shown in the attached figure, let us consider two right-angles triangles, ΔABC and ΔDEF, with sides AB = 3 cm, BC = 4 cm, AC = 5 cm, DE = 4 cm, EF = 3 cm and DF = 5 cm.

So the perimeters of both the triangles = 3 + 4 + 5 = 4 + 3 + 5 = 12 cm.

Since volume term is not valid in case of triangles, so they cannot have equal volumes. Therefore, option (A) is incorrect.

Area of ΔABC is

and area of ΔDEF is

Therefore, they may have equal areas and so option (B) is correct.

If the triangles have equal bases, then the heights will also be equal and both the triangles will be same. Similar is the case with equal heights. So, options (C) and (D) are incorrect.

Thus, the correct option is (B). equal areas.
