### Subject: The Adobe Suite

Photoshop: How do you merge cut and paste two images together and then get proper lighting? InDesign: How do you apply page numbering to certain sheets?

Photoshop: This can be done a number of ways. Though it depends on the exact situation, I would recommend the following: First, you can use the polygonal lasso tool to select what you want from one image. Then, when you paste it into the next image, you'll want to adjust the levels, brightness, and contrast to get an effective similar feel. Finally, you can use the burn or dodge tool to get accurate reflections, highlights, and shadows. InDesign: Using master pages, you can format what you want and then apply them to other sheets. The easiest way to do this is: Go to a master page. Create a text box. Insert a "special character" in that text box, and choose page number Then, depending on the setup of your document, you may need to select the sheets you want to apply this master page to in order to get the page number to populate.

### Subject: ACT

Three questions: ENGLISH: Choose the sentence you consider best: A. Less then fifty years ago, though, only a small part of the ice had melted. B. Less than fifty years ago, though, only a small part of the ice had melted. C. Less than fifty years ago, though, only a smaller part of the ice had melted. D. Less than fifty years ago, though, only a smaller part of the ice had melt. MATH: What is the greatest common factor of 64, 80, and 126? A. 8 B. 4 C. 2 D. 1 SCIENCE: An experiment is conducted in which a wheel is turned at a rate of 5 degrees per second. As the wheel turns, it pumps water at a rate of 1 liter per 1 full rotation. The wheel completes 4 four rotations plus 120 degrees. Upon completion of the experiment, how much time has passed and how much water has been pumped? A. 312 seconds, 4.33 liters B. 312 seconds, 4.5 liters C. 244 seconds, 4.33 liters D. 244 seconds, 4.5 liters

ENGLISH: The answer is B. Choice A misuses "then" instead of "than." C and D misuse "smaller," which is an unnecessary use of a comparative, and D also misuses the past participle "had melt." MATH: The answer is C. Although 64 and 80 are divisible by both 4 and 8, 126 is not. (you cannot divide 126 by 4 and get a whole number). The only factor that they all share is 2. SCIENCE: The answer is A. The experiment takes 4 four rotations plus 120 degrees, which equals [4 rotations] x [360 degrees] + 120. That equals 1,560 degrees total. If you divide that by 5 degrees per second, you get 312 seconds. For the liters, it rotated 4 times, which is 4 liters, plus an additional 120 degrees. Divide the 120 by 360 to get one third, or .333. This equals 4.33 liters.

### Subject: Algebra

Given 5x + 2 = -8 , then [4 - x^2] = ?

To simplify that first equation, we can move the 2 to the other side. This gives us: 5x = -10 Then, we can divide each side by 5, which gives us: x = -2. Now we plug in that (-2) into the second equation, which looks like this: [4 - (-2)^2] We can write that out further like this: [4 - (-2)(-2)] which = [4 - 4] which equals 0.
