In writing we want our sentences to be effective, yet concise. Rewrite this sentence to be both effective and concise: At this point in time, there are already 10 people interested in the position that was just posted yesterday.
Here is one possible answer: There are 10 people interested in the position. If the fact that the position was posted yesterday is necessary information, you may want to say: The position posted yesterday has 10 interested applicants. It is important to remove or replace wordiness. For example, "at this point in time" could simply be "now"-- if it is actually necessary in the sentence.

8 is what percent of 40?
First, we need to make this into an equation: 8 = n x 40 ("is" means "=", "of" means multiply, and we need to find the percent so it becomes a variable (n)) Next, we need to get the variable (n) by itself. We divide 40 by 40 (cancels out) and what we do to one side has to be done to the other so we divide 8 by 40 and that is 0.2 which is the same as 20%.
Choose the correct spelling for the missing words in this sentence: (Their, There, They're) bringing (their, there, they're) dog to the park today.
They're bringing their dog to the park today. If "they are" makes sense in the sentence then you should use they're ("they are bringing") because it is a contraction. "Their" refers to people and in this sentence, the speaker is referring to a group of people bringing a dog to the park. We did not use there in this sentence but we could have if a place was not used because "there" refers to a place. For example: "They're bringing their dog over there." OR "The new park opened last week. Have you been there yet?"
