If a is an odd integer and b is an even integer, which of the following is an odd integer? A. 3b B. a+3 C. 2(a+b) D. a+2b E. 2a+b
The answer is D. A cannot be right because an even integer times an integer will give an even integer. B cannot be right because two odd integers added together will give us an even integer. C cannot be right because 2 times an integer gives an even integer. D is correct because 2b must be even, so adding the odd integer a will give us an odd integer. E cannot be right because 2a must be even, so adding the even integer b gives us an even integer. You can test this by making a=1 and b=2 and plugging those values into each choice to see which one comes out odd. It might be faster just to do that from the beginning.
Name several ways to convert the following statement into a question in French: "Vous comprenez très bien le français canadien."
1. Est-ce que vous comprenez très bien le français canadien? 2. Comprenez-vous très bien le français canadien? 3. Vous comprenez très bien le français canadien, n'est-ce pas? 4. Vous comprenez très bien le français canadien? (Using voice inflection.)
Denise and Peter are enjoying a few drinks at their favorite bar. After having a few too many, Denise writes on a cocktail napkin "I promise to sell my car to Peter for $25." and both sign it. Is this a legally binding contract? Analyze why or why not.
The contract is probably not binding for numerous reasons. In favor of enforceability, there is a mutual manifestation of assent (offer and acceptance) because both parties signed the contract, even though it isn't traditional to make a contract on a napkin. There is consideration on both sides, the promise to sell the car and the payment of $25. However, the contract lacks specificity as to when the sale is to take place or the specific car to be sold. But even more importantly, a reasonable person would not likely conclude that Peter thought the contract was serious; it was a joke. Depending on how much Denise had to drink, she may have lacked the capacity to enter into a binding contract.
