Use this information to answer parts a and b. Kayla scored 10 points when her basketball team won 24 to 16 on November 3. To make the playoffs, her team must win two of the next three games. a.) How many points were scored by Kayla’s teammates? b.) Kayla’s team has won 6 games and lost 5 games. Altogether, how many games does Kayla’s team need to win to make the playoffs?
a.) To solve this problem, you would take the total amount of points Kayla's team scored and subtract the amount of points Kayla scored. This would be 24 - 10, or 14 points scored by Kayla's teammates. b.) We know that Kayla's team has won 6 games. The information above tells us that they must win two of their next three games. In order to solve how many games they need to win altogether to make playoffs, we add the number of games they have won to the number of games they still need to win. This is 6 + 2, or 8 games altogether to make playoffs.
Think of the novel "The Great Gatsby." Think of a different ending to this novel. How would the rest of the story have to be changed to fit the new ending?
In my new ending of "The Great Gatsby," Jay Gatsby would not have been murdered in his swimming pool. There would have to be drastic changes to the plot in order for this to happen. When Daisy, Tom, Gatsby, and Nick go to the city, they would not stop at the gas station owned by the Wilsons. This would prevent Myrtle and her husband from seeing Daisy and Tom together in the big yellow car. Since the Wilsons would have never seen them or the car, it is safe to say that Myrtle would not have run out to stop the car. If Myrtle did not run out to stop the car because she thought Tom was in it, she would not have gotten run over by Daisy. Since, in this new ending, Myrtle was not killed by Gatsby's yellow car, her husband George would not even know about who to look for to exact revenge. Since her husband is not actively seeking revenge for the murder of his wife, Gatsby would live another day, floating lazily in his pool.
