Question:

Are line breaks within a poem as random as they seem?

Inactive
Lily M.
Answer:

While line breaks in poetry seem random or unintentional at times, a successful command of where lines begin and end can not only work to control the reader's breath and reading pace, but also cause lines to read in a way that can provide the most accurate meaning. While the author's intentions are impossible to know and largely subjective for the reader, manipulation of line breaks is still an important tool for a writer to have.

Answer:

Words that have the same pronunciation, but different spellings, meanings, and origins (etymologies), are called homophones. In the English language, the differences between the words are connoted by the sentences we use them in and meanings we intend.

Question:

Please solve for x in this equation: 4x+4=12

Answer:

x=2: A possible way to solve for x would be to begin by subtracting 4 from both sides. This would leave behind "4x=8." To isolate the x, we would need to finish by dividing both sides by 4. This leaves "x=8/4," which is simplified to x=2.
