Llena el espacio blanco con los opciones: a) hubo b) había c) habían d) hecho "Durante el verano yo iba a la playa con frecuencia. _______ una linea para entrar todos los días.

La respuesta correcta es b) había. El verbo correcto es "había" porque el narrador está hablando en el imperfecto. Esta significa que la acción no tiene una terminación definitiva en el pasado. Fue una acción que ocurrió con frecuencia. Entonces, la frase completa es "Durante el verano yo iba a la playa con frecuencia. Había una linea para entrar todos los días."

How many morphemes are in the word hopefully and what kind are they (bound, free, inflectional, derivational)?

There are 3 morphemes in the word hopefully. The first one ("hope") is a free morpheme because it can stand on its own and does not need to be attached to anything. The second one ("-ful") is a bound morpheme and it is derivational because it changes the category of the word "hope" from a noun to an adjective. The third one ("-ly") is also a bound morpheme, and it is also derivational because, again, it changes the meaning of the word. We go from "hopeful", which is an adjective, to "hopefully", which is an adverb.

If 5x-3y= 28, and -6x+2y= -24, then what is xy?

Start out by finding one variable first by getting the target variable by itself. We'll start by finding x. So for the first equation, you would get only x on one side by adding 3y to 28: 5x=28+3y Then, divide both sides by 5: x= (28/5) + (3/5)y Now that you have your answer for x, you can plug it in to the second equation: -6(28/5 + 3/5y) + 2y= -24 Now distribute: -168/5 + -18/5y + 2y= -24 Multiply both sides by 5: -168 -18y + 10y = -120 Combine like terms: -168 -8y= -120 Add 168 to both sides: -8y= 48 Divide by -8: y= -6 Now you can plug your answer for y into the other equation: x= (28/5) + (3/5)(-6) x= (28/5) + (-18/5) Subtract 18 from 28: x= 10/5 Simplify: x=2 Now finish the equation xy: (2)(-6)= -12
