### Subject: Education

Motivation can be broken into two categories: intrinsic and extrinsic. Please define the two types and give an example of these types of motivation in effect in a classroom.

Intrinsic motivation is when a student is motivated by internal, controllable factors like their pride and their desire to learn or succeed. For example, an intrinsically motivated student would want to pass to the next math group due to his or her desire to continue improving on math skills and feel accomplished. Extrinsic motivation is when a student is motivated by outside factors like rewards or praise. An extrinsically motivated student would want to pass to the next math group if doing so resulted in him or her being congratulated by the whole class or receiving extra credit for moving up.

### Subject: Algebra

Solve for X. 3x-24=6-2x

By simplifying the equation as shown below, you can solve for X. Remember that anything done to one side of the equation must also be done to the other. 3x-24=6-2x (add 24 to both sides) 3x=30-2x (add 2x to both sides) 5x=30 (divide both sides by 5) x= 6
