Question:

What's the difference between 私は and 私の?

Crystal d.
Answer:

To understand, we must realize that the particles は and の are different and how they're used. Particle は is used in beginning Japanese as a topic marker. For example: I am Jim. 私はジムです. I like ramen. 私はラーメンが好きです. While particle の in this instance is used in the possessive form to mark something as yours or someone else's. For example: It is my pen. 私のペンです. Sam's mother is a teacher. サムさんの母は先生です. In "Sam's mother is a teacher." you can see how は and の are used together in the sentence. Sam's mother is the topic while の indicates whose mother it is. If you're still struggling you can look at it this way. Which would you say in English? Option 1: It is my pen. 私のペンです Option 2: I am a pen. 私はペンです. Option 1 is the best use.

Question:

How do I structure an essay?

Crystal d.
Answer:

The structure can change depending on the type of essay or the teacher's requirements. Generally, every essay will have an introductory paragraph where you introduce your subject and the main point of your essay. It will have at least one body paragraph where you show evidence that supports your main point and a summary (conclusion) paragraph that summarizes arguments and the main point.

Question:

How do we round to the nearest hundred?

Crystal d.
Answer:

Rounding to the nearest hundred is a bit different than rounding to the nearest whole number. For example, instead of taking 152 and rounding based on the 2 to 150, you would take 152 and base it on the 5. Anything 5 or larger is rounded up. Therefore, 152 rounded to the nearest hundred becomes 200.
