Question:

Which of the following sentences is grammatically correct? Mon frère es grand et brun. Mon frère est grand et brun.

Answer:

"Mon frère est grand et brun." "Mon frère" translates to "my brother," which is the third person singular subject of the sentence. The third person singular conjugation of the verb "être" (to be) is "est." In the incorrect sentence, the conjugation used ("es") is actually the second person singular conjugation. All of the conjugations of "être" are as follows: I am : Je suis You (singular) are : Tu es He/She is : Il/Elle est We are : Nous sommes You (plural) are : Vous êtes They are : Ils/Elles sont

Answer:

Neapolitan 6th (N6, flat II). In any key, the major chord created by lowering scale degrees 2 and 6 by a half-step (in this example, we lowered A# to A natural, and E# to E natural) is known as the Neapolitan 6th or Flat II. This chord can be used as a predominant chord in any chord progression.

Question:

Solve for 'x': 5x + 7 = 37

Answer:

x = 6 5x + 7 = 37 5x + 7 (- 7) = 37 (-7) 5x + 0 = 30 5x = 30 5x (/ 5) = 30 (/ 5) x = 6 When we solve for x, we begin by doing the Order of Operations (PEMDAS) backwards on the equation we are solving in order to isolate 'x'. So, in this equation, we would begin by undoing the addition of 7. To do this, we subtract 7 from both sides of the equation, leaving us with 5x (+0) = 30. In order to isolate 'x' from 5x = 30, we divide both sides by 5, leaving us with x = 6.
