### Subject: French

Translate the following sentence: "Charles is hungry and wants to eat crepes."

First let's locate the subject of the sentence, Charles which is male. "is" translates to the verb "avoir"in French and since Charles is the subject, we will have to conjugate the verb "avoir" at the third person singular. The answer "a". Now hungry translates to "faim" and "and" to "et". So the start of the sentence is "Charles a faim et...". Let's look at theother half of the sentence. "Crepes" does not need any translation as it is a popular desert snack in France and known in the USA. "wants" is the verb " vouloir" which translates at the third person singular to "veut". Finally eat is "manger" and a determiner is required before the noun "crepes". The final answer is : " Charles a faim et veut manger des crepes".

### Subject: Geometry

What is the value of angle C in the following triangle when angle A= 34degrees and angle B=40degrees?

This problem requires us to recall a property related to the sum of the angles in a triangle. The sum of the angles in any triangle will be equal to 180degrees. Hence we can set up an equation with one unknown. 180= A + B+ C. OR 180= 34 +40 + C. We can hence determine add 34 to 40 equaling 74. Finally, 180-74=C C=106 degrees :)

### Subject: Calculus

Integrate 5x^3 from 1 to 2?

First, let's locate if there are any multiplying factors that we can take out of the integral. We can hence take out 5 from the integral. Now we are left with integrating x^3. This is a basic integration as we can follow a rule to do so. The result is x^4/4. Now we plug in our upper limit, 2, in x^4/4 which equal 16/4. We now need to plug in our lower limit in the result which results to 1/4. Lastly, we subtract the result from the lower limit from the result of the upper limit. (16/4)-(1/4)= 15/4. Voila!
