First, we solve the first equation for $$x$$: $$4x-\frac{y}{2}=32$$ $$(4x-\frac{y}{2})*2=(32)*2$$ $$4x-2=64$$ $$(4x-2)+2=(64+2)$$ $$4x=66$$ $$x=16.5$$ Next, we use the value we found for $$x$$ to find the value for $$y$$ in the second equation: $$\frac{2x}{y}=3$$ $$(\frac{2x}{y})*y=3y$$ $$2x=3y$$ $$2(16.5)=3y$$ $$33=3y$$ $$\frac{33}{3}=\frac{3y}{3}$$ $$11=y$$ Solution: $$x=16.5$$ and $$y=11$$

Question:

Analyze the imagery in Woodsworth's poem "We Are Seven."

The imagery primarily speaks to the child’s blended understanding of life and death. In the eighth stanza the girl describes the resting place of her siblings, describing: “Two of us in the church-yard lie, / Beneath the church-yard tree” (31-32). A churchyard, at that time, was used for burials. Graveyards typically have eerie connotations due to their function and quiet nature. However, this silence could also be interpreted as peaceful, especially when examining the image of the brother and sister under the tree. Lying beneath a tree connotes feelings of tranquility. The combination of the setting and action show the country girl’s comfort with the graveyard, and to extrapolate further, death. Her comfort with death is addressed again through imagery when she shares, “And there upon the ground I sit, / And sing a song to them” (43-44). This auditory image is one of lightheartedness and contentment. Singing is an innocent and cheerful pastime, yet she performs this action in a graveyard, a place traditionally associated with somberness. This situation seems almost paradoxical, yet the contrast only further highlights her acceptance of death as a part of life. Furthering the sense of contentment, the child’s illustration of her siblings’ grave brings light to their continued presence in her world. She describes their resting place as “green,” a color signifying spring, renewal, and life (37). This image juxtaposes the traditional idea of death as a loss in which life ceases to exist. Instead, this “green” symbolizes renewal, growth, and the continuation of their presence in her life. Their lives now take on a new dimension in her world, despite the fact they cannot be there physically. She again blurs the lines between joviality and mourning when she describes John’s death, explaining he died “When the ground was white with snow / And I could run and slide” (57-58). This passage depicts winter, a time symbolizing death, sadness, and despair. Again, however, there is the image of playfulness to contrast this time of loss.
