Question:

Given the following, find 'x': 3x + (5x - (11 + x)) = 9x + 1

Andrew K.
Answer:

Answer: x = -6 Worked Solution: 3x + (5x - (11 + x)) = 9x + 1 3x + (5x - 11 - x) = 9x + 1 3x + (4x - 11) = 9x + 1 7x - 11 = 9x + 1 -2x = 12 x = -6

Question:

Identify and correct any errors in the following passage: Chambliss’ analysis of severity, visibility, demeanor, and bias eventually forms a conclusion of social construction; essentially, Chambliss argues that selective perception by a society has the power to facilitate or dictate the nature of delinquency, even influencing the path of one's life[1]. Ultimately, Chambliss’ piece is rather interesting in that it is not dampened by preconceived notions; rather, the piece examined the interaction of such notions with the reality of circumstance[2]. This conclusion - made possible by the collection and analysis of empirically sound data, proves the sociological implications of perception[3].

Andrew K.
Answer:

The passage, when corrected, should read as follows (or similarly, depending on revision): Chambliss’ analysis of severity, visibility, demeanor, and bias eventually form a conclusion of social construction; essentially, Chambliss argues that selective perception by a society has the power to facilitate or dictate the nature of delinquency, even influencing the path of one's life[1]. Ultimately, Chambliss’ piece is rather interesting in that it is not dampened by preconceived notions; rather, the piece examines the interaction of such notions with the reality of circumstance[2]. This conclusion, made possible by the collection and analysis of empirically sound data, proves the sociological implications of perception[3]. Changes: Plurality change in sentence [1]: 'forms' substituted with 'form,' as the subject of verb is plural. The appropriate conjugation for a plural subject would be 'form,' rather than 'forms.' Tense change in sentence [2]: 'examined' is substituted with 'examines' in order to maintain the proper tense throughout the passage. Punctuation change in sentence [3]: hyphen (-) is substituted with a comma, as 'made possible by the collection and analysis of empirically sound data' is a parenthetical phrase and must be bound by commas on either side.

Question:

Scientist A: Climate change is proving to be a deadly force; this summer, parts of India received record rainfall—37 inches fell in Mumbai in 24 hours, killing more than 1,000 people. The new extremes of wind and rain are part of a larger pattern that also includes rapidly melting glaciers worldwide, increasing desertification, a global extinction crisis, the ravaging of ocean fisheries, and a growing range for disease 'vectors' like mosquitoes, ticks and many other carriers of viruses and bacteria harmful to people. Scientist B: The health, environmental, and economic costs of human inaction regarding climate change are rapidly becoming unmanageable. We're seeing changes in asthma, heat wave deaths, and other events that are indicative of enormous changes affecting the environment. Climate is effectively 'stalking' humans, harming our life support systems. --- Under typical conditions, the migratory pattern of the species 'Culicidae,' commonly known as the mosquito, tends to remain the same over time. Suppose that the most recent patterns of migration have reflected a larger geographic area of movement. This would most closely reflect the viewpoint of __________. A) Scientist A only B) Scientist B only C) Both Scientist A and B D) Neither Scientist A nor B

Andrew K.
Answer:

Answer: A) Scientist A only Scientist A notes a 'growing range for disease 'vectors',' including mosquitoes. This 'growing range' reflects the larger geographic area of movement of this species. Scientist B, on the other hand, focuses more so on the anthropological implications of climate change, making no mention of mosquito behavior.
