## Questions

### Subject: Writing

How do we overcome prejudice and social bias? How do you create meaning in a text? What if no one could artistically express themselves?

All of the writing prompts listed above are essential questions. An essential question is a question that requires thought. It can't be just a yes or no answer. I think that in order to write something great, you must begin with an essential question that relates to your topic. This will make your work thought-provoking and interesting.

### Subject: Algebra

Amber spent $50 on shoes. This was $18 less than twice what she spent on a pair of earrings. How much did the earrings cost?

Every word problem has an "unknown." In this problem, the unknown is the cost of the earrings. So we will let the cost of the earrings be "x." The equation would look like this: 2x-18=50 We have to isolate the x. In order to do that, We will add 18 to both sides. The new equation will look like this: 2x=68 Next we have to divide by two on both sides in order to get x by itself. The solution would be x=34 dollars
