## Questions

### Subject: Writing

Why is the example below not punctuated correctly? Example: I am as you probably noticed very nervous about how I portray myself on this tutoring website.

I am, as you probably noticed, very nervous about how I portray myself on this tutoring website. Since there is an expression that disrupts the flow of the sentence, we need to use commas to reflect that.

### Subject: Study Skills

Why should re-reading your notes or textbook not be considered studying?

Re-reading one's notes or textbook does not allow for you to actively engage with the information. The book Make It Stick contained some really great strategies such as self-quizzing and interleaving practice.

### Subject: Algebra

Starting with some number, if you multiply it by 5, divide by 3, and then add 28, you get 73. What number did you start with?

You can work backward with inversing each operation: 73 subtracted by 28, then multiplied by 3, and then divided by 5, which is 27.
