Do skin cells on your foot grow and develop via mitosis or meiosis?

Skin cells on the foot grown and develop via mitosis. A fun way to remember the difference between mitosis and meiosis is remembering the phrase "my toes itch" sounds like mitosis, which is normal cell growth and development vs. meiosis which involves sex cells.

### Subject: Calculus

Graph the equation 2x-3=y. Find the area under this curve on the interval x=[1,10]

Solving the definite integral on the interval x=[1,10], we will find that the area under the curve is 72 using the power rule (I would be able to explain this better if I had the proper access to a calculus notation keyboard!)

### Subject: Algebra

If Store A sells oranges for $0.50 per orange and Store B sells oranges for $1.00 for every 2 oranges a person buys, which store has the better price if someone buys 10 oranges?

Store A and Store B would offer the same price for 10 oranges. This can be shown either by solving 0.5(10)= $5 for Store A and (10/2)*1 =$5 for store B.
