Question:

Jackie earns 5 dollars for every barrel of apples she fills. Each barrel holds 10 apples. She also earns an additional 4 dollars for washing the apples. Which of the following represents an equation that could be used to determine how much money Jackie earns, based on the number of barrels she fils? Note: x refers to the number of barrels filled A. 10x+5+4 B. 5x+10+4 C. 5x+4 D. (10+5)x +4

Shelby R.
Answer:

The correct answer is C. 5x+4 In this case, the question told us that x refers to the number of barrels filled. The number of apples per barrel is extra information meant to distract the test taker because the question asks us to give an answer in the number of barrels, not in the number of apples. If Jackie gets paid 5 dollars for every barrel, we should multiply the number of barrels (x) by 5 (because she gets paid 5 dollars). Then, we would add 4 dollars for washing the apples. Since the 4 dollars is a flat rate we add the 4 dollars, insteady of multiplying x by 4.

Question:

Identify the error in the following sentence: Bicycling home from school, my helmet fell off my head.

Shelby R.
Answer:

The sentence has a dangling participle. Participles should describe the closest noun/pronoun in the sentence. In this case, the participle "bicycling home from school" is closest to helmet. Therefore, it is implies that the helmet was bicycling home from school. However, since helmets cannot bicycle, we know that the intended subject was me. The sentence can be corrected as follows: Bicycling home from school, I felt my helmet fall of my head. In this sentence, I (the subject) is adjacent to the participle (bicycling home from school).
