What are the correct notes in a D Major scale? How do you know? Is the VI chord in the D major scale Major or Minor?

Answer:

D Major scale is as follows: d,e,f#,g,a,b,c#,d One of the ways to know this is to follow this consistent step pattern: Whole, whole, half, whole, whole, whole, half. This works for any major scale. Now we can locate the sixth chord (b,d,f#). This is a B Minor chord. In the B major scale the d is a D#. When we lower the middle note in a Major triad chord (to D natural in this case) the chord becomes minor.

Answer:

You first need to lower the affective filter. The affective filter can be viewed as a theoretical barrier or an umbrella that prevents meaningful information or language from reaching the student. Some of the factors that increase the affective filter include stress, low self-confidence, fear of bad grades, social anxiety, fear of performing badly, etc. When we create an environment that is calm, positive, and welcomes mistakes, we help to lower the affective filter. Language that is taught in this kind of setting will be better absorbed by the student.

Question:

Due to conservation efforts, the gray whale has been removed from the endangered species list. There are now 14,000 in the world, and the population is expected to grow by 11% yearly. Write an equation that models this scenario. A.y = 14,000(0.11)^x B.y = 14,000(1.11)^x C.y = 14,000(0.89)^x D.y = 14,000(1.89)^x

Answer:

Y= total population X=# of years After the first year (when X=1) you have this equation: Y=14000+14000*(0.11) A better way to condense this would be: Y=14000*1.11 X=2: the new total population plus 11% of that new total Y= [14,000*1.11] + [14,000*1.11]*0.11 Again condensing the equation we have: Y= [14,000*1.11](1.11) Or Y=14,000*(1.11)^2 Therefore, (B) Y=14,000(1.11)^x is correct
