Read the following excerpt from Leslie Marmon Silko’s story “The Man to Send Rain Clouds.” They turned off the highway onto the sandy pueblo road. Not long after they passed the store and post office they saw Father Paul’s car coming toward them. When he recognized their faces he slowed his car and waved for them to stop. The young priest rolled down the car window. “Did you find old Teofilo?” he asked loudly. Leon stopped the truck. “Good morning, Father. We were just out to the sheep camp. Everything is O.K. now.” “Thank God for that. Teofilo is a very old man. You really shouldn’t allow him to stay at the sheep camp alone.” “No, he won’t do that any more now.” What does this dialogue reveal about the priest’s standing within the community? He is a trusted leader of the tribe. He is considered to be an outsider. He is a spiritual guide to the people. He is disliked by most of the people.

Answer: The right answer is the B: He is considered to be an outsider.

Explanation: Leon and his brother-in-law, Ken, had found Teofilo’s corpse under a tree. However, when Father Paul, a Franciscan priest, asked them if they had found him, Leon did not mention that Teofilo had died. He did not openly lie to the priest, but he avoided mentioning Teofilo’s death to him. This shows that Father Paul was not considered part of the tribe, but an outsider that was trying to “impose” his faith and his religious practices on a community that already had its own.

Which line from act 1 of the importance of being earnest is an epigram? A. “There is no good offering a large reward now that the thing is found.” B. “… you have no right whatsoever to read what is written inside.” C. “More than half of modern culture depends on what one shouldn’t read.” D. “Well, if you want to know, Cecily happens to be my aunt.”

[ad_1]

“More than half of modern culture depends on what one shouldn’t read.”

An epigram is a clever or witty saying that expresses an idea. This line epitomizes how Wilde feels about the ideals of morality during his time period. A strict set of rules that most people don’t follow. This also fits with the title as Ernest turns out not to be very earnest. The other lines are simply statements from the characters.

Which statement correctly describes the slope of the linear function that is represented by the data in the table? Table (It may move to the left a bit when it is actually posted, sorry. It shouldn’t be hard to read though) x y 8 -8 8 -4 8 0 8 4 8 8 a.The slope is positive. b.The slope is negative. c.The slope is zero. d.There is no slope.

[ad_1]

Answer: d. There is no slope.

Step-by-step explanation:

We know that slope ==frac{text{change in y coordinate}}{text{change in x coordinate}}

For the given table, since there is no change in x coordinate .

Thus the change in x coordinate is 0.

Therefore, slope==frac{text{change in y coordinate}}{0}=infty

which means the slope does not exist.

Hence, (d) is the right option. There is no slope.

5x^2-90=0 this shouldn’t be that hard

Answer:

The probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive is 0.9975

The probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive is 0.999875

Step-by-step explanation:

There is a 5​% rate of disk drive failure in a year

So, probability of failure q = 0.05

Since the sum of probabilities = 1

So, probability of success p= 1-0.05

                                            =0.95

Part a : all your computer data is stored on a hard disk drive with a copy stored on a second hard disk​ drive

So, n =2

We are required to find what is the probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive

So, he probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive :

1-(^2C_0 times p^0times q^2)

1-(frac{2!}{0!(2-0)!}times (0.95)^0times(0.05)^2)

1-(1times0.0025)

0.9975

Hence the probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive is 0.9975

Part b :  If copies of all your computer data are stored on three three independent hard disk​ drives, what is the probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive?

Since there are 3 copies so, n =3

So, the probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive:

1-(^3C_0 times p^0times q^2)

1-(frac{3!}{0!(3-0)!} times (0.95)^0times(0.05)^3)

1-(1times0.000125)

0.999875

Hence the probability that during a​ year, you can avoid catastrophe with at least one working​ drive is 0.999875
