" When any one of these changes 2 occur, it is likely the result of careful analysis conducted by transportation planners." For the sentence below, which of the following choices is the best substitute for the capitalized portion: "When any one of these changes OCCUR, IT IS likely the result of careful research conducted in the lab." A no change, B occur, they are C occurs, they are D occurs, it is

Choice D is the best answer because it maintains agreement between pronoun (“it”) and antecedent (“any one”) and between subject (“any one”) and verb (“occurs”). Choice D. This substitution maintains agreement between "it" and "any one" and between "any one of the changes" and "occurs". Say the other phrases out loud and see if any of them sound correct when said out loud in a sentence.

### Subject: Pre-Algebra

How would you go about solving a question that looks like this: 7((2/7) + 3x) = 7(5)?\ so that we can find the value of the x?

Remember the phrase "PEMDAS" whenever solving multi-step equations like this to keep the correct order of operations. "Parentheses, Exponents, Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract." By following this model, we'll see that our first operation will be to multiply 7 by 2/7 and then add it to 7 * 3x, as we know any time a number is lined up outside of a parentheses, we must multiply it. This will give us ((7 * 2)/7) simply giving us 2 as the 7s cancel themselves out diagonally in the numerator and denominator. Next, we add this to 7 *3x, which is going to equal 21x. Therefore, the left side of the equation has now become 2 + 21x. The right side of the equation is 35 after we multiply 7 and 5 together. Our new equation looks something like this: 2 + 21x = 35. Our next step is to subtract 2 from each side of the equation. This gives us 21x = 33 because we can only subtract whole numbers (without a variable next to them) directly from each other. In order to isolate the x, we will divide 21 by each side of the equation (as 21 is being multiplied by x). Our new equation will be x= 33/21, which we know can be reduced down to 11/7.
