## Marty teaches music in his community. He teaches three classes a day, and each class has fewer than 8 students. If Marty teaches x students a day, which is the simplest inequality that represents this situation?

x<24

Step-by-step explanation:

We have that Marty teaches three classes a day, and each class has fewer than 8 students. Let’s suppose that each class has 8 students, in this case we have that the total number of students that Marty teaches is x = 3×8=24, because Marty teaches three classes a day and x represents the total students Marty has in a day. But we know that each Marty’s class has fewer than 8 students and not exactly 8, then we should have x<24. Because a good case for Marty would be to have 8 students in each class.

## What is a paradox? an author or character says one thing but means something else the audience or reader knows or understands something that a character does not know an inconsistency between what the audience or reader expects and what actually happens a statement or situation that seems to be contradictory but actually presents a truth

The answer is a situation that seems to be contradictory but actually, presents a truth. It seems unreal because it gives a different light of understanding a subject. A paradox has a possibility to happen although it looks impossible or contradicting.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

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.

Well; You have the classics

Originally published in 1949 by George Orwell, 1984 depicts a dystopian world of the ‘future’. The book is less of a prediction more then it is a warning of what could be. It follows one character who is desperately trying to remember what real life is like, and gets tangled up in all sorts of messes along the way.

You could read Alice in Wonderland or Mary Poppins, theres a million great classics out there Im sure you can find on any website.

Personally I prefer fantasy novels;

Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist
This book follows a young student through a steampunk style, magic infused world. It takes a moment to not chuckle at the concept of monsters that are essentially drawings, but its a very well done book with beautiful writing and mental scenery

Patrick Rothfuss’s, The Name of the Wind
This is my favorite book of all time. Patrick Rothfuss’s work is honestly amazing in this book. Mind you its probably not all that wise for the feint of heart through perhaps the second chapter; but it really is amazing. The sculpting of the world, the depth of the characters its utterly masterful. The story opens with Kote, a fairly normal seeming innkeeper and his dark haired companion Bast. Fairly normal until a man happens upon the inn, looking for a certain Kvothe, a man thought to just be a legend and a story… and Kote’s past is drug up, and other things that should probably be better left alone.

## Why is it that once witnesses state information as a fact or identify a person as the perpetrator, the witnesses are usually unwilling or unable to change their understanding of the situation, even after they are provided proof that their account is inaccurate? Based on what you learned in the article, explain why jurors should consider eyewitness testimonies carefully during a trial.

Hey there!

For your first question, consider the difference between emergency care and elective surgery. Elective surgery is planned out in advance and is considered a luxury to those who can pay for it only. In some situations, people can opt out of treating something with surgery, especially if it’s expensive, and may try other methods of treating what they have if other options exist. Also, as the price of a surgery procedure gets higher, less people will be able to pay for it, decreasing the demand. On the contrary, when it’s an emergency, people will often value the life of the urgent patient above all else, including money. Therefore, it can be assumed that urgent care will always be demanded regardless of its price fluctuation.

For your second question, consider the general consensus of people who purchase health care (in general). These people likely think about the possibility of falling ill and needing the health care in the first place. These people also likely think of all that could happen on vacation, especially to foreign countries where immunities and illnesses could be very different, and would like to minimize the possibility of getting ill as much as possible. So, it would make sense that someone who buys more health care would spend less on vacationing and vice versa.

Hope this helped you out! 🙂

## Jim enjoys playing basketball. he figures that he makes about 50% of the field goals he attempts during a game. in this situation, we’ll say success occurs when jim makes an attempted field goal. what is the value of p?

The following equation of parabola is given:

p(x)= – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

where p(x) = y

This is a standard form of the parabola. We need to
convert this into vertex form of equation. The equation must be in the form:

y – k = a (x – h)^2

Where h and k are the vertex of the parabola. Therefore,

y = – 5 x^2 + 240 x – 2475

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495)

Completing the square:

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + _) – (-5)* _

Where the value in the blank _ is = -b/2

Since b = -48        therefore,

y = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 495 + 81) + 405

y – 405 = -5 (x^2 – 48 x + 576)

y – 405 = -5 (x – 24)^2

Therefore the vertex is at points (24, 405).

The company should make 24 tables per day to attain maximum
profit.

## Civics Assume the European Euro is increasing in exchange value compared to the U.S. dollar. Who will benefit most in this situation?

The Reformation actually started after Columbus’s landing in North America.

Treaty of Tordesillas in 1494 was forced on Spain and Portugal by the Pope. The Pope basically said that all lands in the New World belonged to Spain and all new non-Christian lands in the Eastern Hemisphere belong to Portugal. No other Catholic countries can do anything in those areas without the approval of the owner.

The pope basically drew two lines on the globe setting the border. The western line started at the north pole cut half way through Greenland and ended at the south pole. The new world was everything to the west. Problem is that it ran through a chunk of Brazil which is why Brazil is an ex-Portuguese colony.

The Eastern line starts at the North Pole runs through siberia, through the pacific just west of Japan, and cuts Australia in half. Of course, Australia hadn’t been discovered yet. Everything to the the east of this line is the new world.

Obviously, this treaty didn’t hold up well, but the reformation gave the protestant countries an excuse to explore the new world since they didn’t have to take orders from the Pope. Even so, France, a catholic country, ignored it too.

Really, the only country that was effected by the reformation in the exploration of the Americas was England. All the other countries, changed their religion once and then went to war with the nearest catholic country. Sweden became Lutheran and stayed that way. The Dutch Republic became Calvinists and stayed that way.

England kept switching. First it was Catholic. Then, Henry VIII made it protestant. Then, Henry’s daughter Mary I made it catholic again. Henry’s other daughter Elizabeth I (with the two hit movies) made it Protestant again.

Years latter, Oliver Cromwell over through the monarchy, executed the King Charles I, and established a Protestant fundamentalist religious military dictatorship. He outlawed drinking,smoking, gambling, theater, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and anything generally fun. He would have made Saudi Arabia proud. Basically, all you could do is work, pray, and die. Sex was allowed for creating children, but you couldn’t enjoy it.

When Cromwell died, the people of England said enough was enough and brought back the King. Charles II kicked out the fundamentalists and brought back drinking, smoking, gambling, dirty books, sports, prostitution, and having fun during sex. Incidentally, those were also all his hobbies.

This brings us to the famous Pilgrims. They were part of Cromwell’s crowd. They kept agitating a return to the no-fun policy. They annoyed everybody. They weren’t persecuted for practicing their religion, they were persecuted because they kept trying to force their religion on everyone else. Sort of like Southern Baptists.

Charles II was the most easy going monarch in British history. Do realize how annoying you have to be to get him to throw you out.

Charles’s brother James II was obsessed with turning Great Britain catholic again. After four years of trying, they kicked him and his followers out.

## 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?

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.

## In a quiz contest, Mary answers 90% of the questions correctly without any additional clues from the quiz coordinator. The randomly generated numbers below simulate this situation. The numbers 0 to 8 represent questions answered correctly without additional clues, and the number 9 represents questions that needed additional clues.

To solve this problem, we should note that there are:

total questions = 100

questions that needed additional clues = 10

1. The first question is to find the probability that in the
third question, Mary would need additional clue. Therefore this implies that in
the first and second questions, Mary would answer it correctly. Therefore:

correctly) * (question 3 needed clue)

Probability = (90/100)*(89/99)*(10/98)

Probability = 0.08256 = 8.26%

2. The second question finds for the probability that two
