Question:

Intermediate Spanish question. Most letters in the Spanish alphabet are pronounced roughly similar to English or have a corresponding sound (the letter "J" in Spanish is pronounced as "H" in English, for example Hijo which means Son is pronounced as "Eeho"). But there is one letter which can be hard to pronounce, this is the letter "Z". Provide examples of English words that can show how to pronounce this letters in Spanish.

Answer:

In Spanish, the correct way to pronounce the letter "Z" is to similar to how the letters "TH" are pronounced in English. For example, the word Zapato which means shoe, is pronounced as "Thapato". Another example is the word Abrazar which means to Hug. It is pronounced as "Abrathar". A good rule of thumb is to remember it is to think of saying Thank You with a Z!

Answer:

PDCA, or the Deming Cycle, is an acronym for Plan Do Check Act which revolves around four clear steps that seek to improve quality overall in a process as well as for a specific problem. These steps are the following. 1) Plan: Gather data and determine the specific actions necessary to improve the process. 2) Do: Implement the changes, determined in the previous step, that will fix the problem or improve the process. 3) Check: Evaluate, validate, and analyze how the changes are fixing the issue or improving quality. Be as specific as possible and gather as much data as feasible. 4) Act: Also know as "adjust" because the final observations and recommendations are given, based on the results of the previous evaluation. This step also provides the bases for starting the cycle all over again in the search for continual improvement.

Question:

Solve the following equation to determine the value of $$ x $$. $$ \frac{5x-3}{2}=11 $$

Answer:

First, we need to make the equation simpler, so we will remove the two from the denominator on the left side. How do we do that? We need to multiply by two and if we do this, then we have to apply it on both sides of the equation, as follows: $$ 2(\frac{5x-3}{2})=2(11) $$ resulting in $$ 5x-3=22 $$ Now remove the negative 3 from the left side of the equation by adding three, and if we do this on one side, we need to do it on both side, as follows: $$ 5x-3+3=22+3 $$ resulting in $$ 5x=25 $$ Finally, to determine the value of $$ x $$, we simply remove the five by diving the expression $$ 5x $$ by five, and if we do this on one side of the equation we must certainly do it on the other side, as follows: $$ \frac{5x}{5}=\frac{25}{5} $$ resulting in $$ x=5 $$ Congratulations! You have solved the equation and successfully determined the value of $$ x $$.
