Answer:

There are principles of excellent writing that are consistent regardless of audience. However, there are clear distinctions between technical writing, analytical writing, professional writing, and storytelling. It is just as important to be familiar with the tone associated with each type of writing so that you can strike the right chord with the right audience as it is to be a proficient writer. Reading plenty of source material in the desired category helps a great deal, and there are many references available for every kind of writing out there.

Question:

Which of the following functions is least likely to be occurring in the nucleus: replication of the genome, processing of pre-mRNA, post-translational modification of secreted proteins, or assembly of ribosomal subunits?

Answer:

Post-translational modification of secreted proteins is the correct response. This will occur in the rough ER and the Golgi apparatus. Replication, RNA processing, and ribosomal subunit assembly all occur in the nucleus.

Question:

Solve for x: x^2 - 9x = -18

Answer:

x = 6,3 First, add 18 to both sides: x^2 - 9x + 18 = 0 This allows us to factor the equation into the form (x + a)(x + b) = 0 We're looking for factors for 18 that sum up to 9; this gives us 6 and 3. In order to determine the sign for these factors, we note that the 9 is negative while the 18 is positive. This means that both terms need to be negative. This gives us (x - 6)(x - 3) = 0 We set each parenthetical equal to 0 and solve for x, giving us the two values of 6 and 3.
