What's the difference between weather and climate? Please define each and point out the differences. Describe factors that affect both.

Weather is what we experience (for example, rain or snow) and it varies by region. Climate is larger scale. It is a statistical representation of global averages of weather over time (temperature, humidity, rainfall, etc.). When I took an environmental science course in college, my professor described the difference as "climate is what we expect; weather is what we get". Climate models are created by scientists based off past weather patterns to try to predict future weather patterns. Climate is ultimately affected by the distance from the equator, ocean currents and winds, distance from a water source (ocean, lake, etc.) as well as topography. Although these factors may also influence weather, climate can be described as the total sum of the weather that occurs in a specific location over the span of time.

### Subject: Algebra

A,B,C and D play a game of cards. A says to B "If I give you 8 cards, you will have as many as C has and I shall have 3 less than what C has. Also if I take 6 cards from C, I shall have twice as many as D has". If B and D together have 50 cards, how many cards have A got? Please provide a quick discussion of how you got your answer.

A=40, B=27, C=35, and D=23. I began by writing down the equations listed in the word questions (for example: "A says to B 'If I give you 8 cards, you will have as many as C has and I shall have 3 less than what C has'" leads to the equations "A-8=C-3" and "B+8=C". The next sentence "I take 6 cards from C, I shall have twice as many as D has" leads to the equation "A+6=2D". The final part is represented by the equation B=D=50". From there, I used substitution of the equations to first solve for A (I began by substituting B with "50-D" from one of the initial equations), then once I found the value of A, I plugged the value of A into the other equations to solve for the rest!
