The correct answer is e) both B and C. Algeria and Libya border the Mediterranean Sea, not the Red Sea. While it is not necessary to know which sea each countries borders, you can use process of elimination to single out the countries that do not border the Red Sea.

x = 3 Begin with distribution-- multiply 3 by 4x and then by 10 3 (4x + 10) = 66 12x + 30 = 66 Next, subtract 30 from both sides 12x + 30 = 66 12x = 36 Lastly, divide both sides by 12 to find the solution for x 12x = 36 x = 3 One helpful strategy to check your solution is plugging it in to the original equation and making sure that you get that same number on each side. 3 (4x + 10) = 66 3 (4(3) + 10) = 66 3 (12 + 10) = 66 3 (22) = 66 66 = 66

Question:

In passage x, the author states, "The sun hung low in the sky, almost invisible behind the layer of thick clouds, making for a quite dismal evening." Which of the words below is a synonym for dismal? a) bleak b) nefarious c) doleful d) feverish e) both A and C

Inactive
Rosalyn H.

The correct is e) both A and C. In this example, bleak and doleful are the best synonyms for the word dismal. Nefarious is a synonym for words like evil, and feverish is a synonym for words like excited. To answer this question, the process of elimination may be the best strategy.
