Question:

Answer:

1. The answer is c. fue Because the sentence begins with ayer, yesterday, it tells us that this is a past event and therefore must be conjugated using preterite tense. This narrows our answers down to fue and fui because va and vas are future tense. Fui is the conjugation for yo and fue is the conjugation for el/ella so our answer is Tim fue al mercado. 2. The answer is para The key here is that para is used for purpose. Tim's purpose for going to the store was to buy bread and cheese. Por is used more for time, or in exchange for something (ex: cost).

Question:

Describe the characters and setting of the following excerpt from a story and predict what you think will happen next: It was a cold and foggy morning. John and Frances held hands so that they would not lose each other in the misty forest. Their feet squished through mud as they walked around calling out, "Pip, here boy! Do you want a treat?". They were feeling worried now that Pip had been lost for over 2 hours.

Answer:

Identifying the characters in a story is very important because we wan to keep track of what they are doing, saying, and feeling. The characters we know of so far are John, Frances and Pip. We know that John and Frances are holing hands and that they are feeling worried. We know that Pip is lost but we don't know if Pip is a missing person, a dog or cat or chinchilla! That is something we will find out later. In describing the setting we want to think about when and where the story takes place. We can describe things like time of day, weather, scenery, location etc. From this story, we know it takes place on "a cold and foggy morning" and that it is set in a misty and muddy forest. The prediction for what happens next is up to you! We want to use the information we have no to make a logical prediction for what could happen next. For example, I might notice they are looking for Pip and predict that Pip is a dog and they find him stuck in the mud somewhere. You might predict that instead of finding Pip, John and Frances are confronted by a big bear! The possibilities are endless :)

Answer:

For me, the best way to approach an algebraic word problem is to take the words and write them into equations. We can use t to represent the number of apples Timmy has, s to represent the number of apples Sasha has and b to represent the number of apples Bob has. Lets break it down: Timmy has 3 apples. Easy! t=3 Sasha has twice as many apples as Timmy. s=2t or if you substitute 3 for t, s= 2*3= 6 s=6 Bob has 2 more apples than Sasha b= s+2 or if you substitute 6 for s, b= 6+2= 8 b=8 Switch this back into words and you have your answer: Bob has 8 apples!
