## What chronology is described in the excerpt? A. the country’s recovery from the 2004 tsunami. B. the initial successes of World Bike Relief C. a life transformed by bicycle ownership D. a volunteer experience with World Bike ReliefRead this excerpt from Wheels of Change by Sue Macy.In efforts to restart the lives of those devastated by the crushing waves of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, my husband, F. K. Day, and I founded World Bicycle Relief (WBR). WBR works to provide access to independence and livelihood through the power of bicycles. During our work in Sri Lanka in 2005-2006, we put more than 24,000 new bicycles into the hands of those rebuilding their lives. Since 2006, we have moved into Africa where we currently work in Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya addressing oppressive poverty and the AIDS pandemic by mobilizing volunteer caregivers, students, and entrepreneurs with bicycles.

The chronology that is described in the excerpt Wheels of Change by Sue Macy is a life transformed by bicycle ownership. The answer is letter C. It is shown in the excerpt above that the couple tried their best to help the people in Sri Lanka get on with their lives by helping them own a bicycle which will produce energy at a much lower cost.

## Triangle PQR is transformed to similar triangle P’Q’R’. A coordinate grid is shown from negative 10 to 0 to positive 10 on both x- and y-axes at increments of 1. A triangle PQR has P at ordered pair 4, 4, Q at ordered pair 8, 4, R at ordered pair 4 and 8. A polygon P prime Q prime R prime has P prime at ordered pair 1,1, Q prime at ordered pair 2,1, R prime at ordered pair 1, 2. What is the scale factor of dilation?

The length of the legs, PQ and PR are 4 units.
The lengths of the legs, P’Q’ and P’R’ are 1 unit.
Since the legs (and triangle) got smaller we know that the scale factor is between 0 and 1.
So.. 4 * x = 1
divide both sides by 4
x = 1/4
The scale factor is 1/4

## The graph of f(x) = |x| is reflected across the x-axis and translated to the right 6 units. Which statement about the domain and range of each function is correct? Both the domain and range of the transformed function are the same as those of the parent function. Neither the domain nor the range of the transformed function are the same as those of the parent function. The range but not the domain of the transformed function is the same as that of the parent function. The domain but not the range of the transformed function is the same as that of the parent function.

D. The domain but not the range of the transformed function is the same as that of the parent function.

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given,

The function is reflected across x-axis, which gives .

And then the function is translated to the right by 6 units, which gives .

Thus, the transformed function is

So, from the graph shown below, we get,

Domain of both the functions f(x) and g(x) is set of all real numbers.

Range of f(x) is .

But, Range of g(x) is .

Hence, the correct option is,

D. The domain but not the range of the transformed function is the same as that of the parent function.

## There was a time when the Church was very powerful … In those days the Church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. Wherever the early Christians entered a town the power structure got disturbed and immediately sought to convict them for being “disturbers of the peace” and “outside agitators.” Things are different now. The contemporary Church is so often a weak, ineffectual voice with an uncertain sound. It is so often the arch-supporter of the status quo. Far from being disturbed by the presence of the Church, the power structure of the average community is consoled by the Church’s silent and often vocal sanction (approved action) of things as they are. What is the main idea of this paragraph?

Since a tiny tender child of four,
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.

8 lines. Rhyme scheme aabbccdd. If I managed to write that in about 4 minutes, you could write something much better and longer in like 30 minutes. You can use my rubbish poem as inspiration lol. Good luck X

## In The Metamorphosis, Kafka makes it evident that Gregor endures a hellish existence as . Being the sole of the family also takes its toll. He yearns to be free of his job and his familial obligations. It seems as though his wish has been granted when he is transformed into an insect. However, Gregor cannot bask in the joy of his freedom because his physical condition causes , and he is forced to live within the confines of his room. Gregor’s condition is also a symbol of his from society, which burdens him with too many expectations and unrealistic goals.

## The graph of y=[x] is transformed as shown in the graph below. Which equation represents the transformed function.

Option b is correct

Step-by-step explanation:

The direct variation says that:

, then the equation is of the form:

where, k is the constant of variation.

As per the statement:

If y varies directly as x.

By direct variation:

….[1]

If y = 18 when x = 5

Substitute these values in [1] we have;

Divide both sides by 5 we have;

or

……[2]

We have to find the value of y when x = 11.

Substitute x = 11 in [2] we have;

Therefore, the value of y is,
