What are the general consenus of using personal pronouns in an academic, research, or scientific related paper?
It is generally advisable to avoid personal pronouns and stick with a more neutral, objective third-person tone throughout.
The driver (asked would we) move to the back of the bus to make room for people getting on. A. asked would we B. asked would we please, C. asked if we would D. asked us, if we would E. asked, would we
C. asked if we would---- is the correct answer because it aids to the flow of the sentence. Answer A does not flow properly and sounds off when spoken aloud. Answer B the comma is incorrectly diving the sentence. Answer D Comma's placement is unnecessary. Answer E is not necessary either since the rest of the sentence is not a quotation.
5 (- 3 x - 2) - (x - 3) = - 4 (4 x + 5) + 13
First, let's deal with the problems associated with the parenthesis: 5(-3x-2). It's important to separate the numbers in the parenthesis: (-3x) and (-2). Understanding that these are two different things is important to accurately solve the problem. Multiply 5 to both parts separately: 5 x (-3x) = -15x and 5 x (-2) = -10. -15x - 10. The next part is factoring out - (x - 3). Imagine there is a negative one, even if it is not outlined, before the parenthesis so it will be -1 (x-3). Now, factor: -1 x X= -X and -1 x -3= 3. So the entire left side of the equation should look like -15x - 10 - x + 3. Just combine like terms from here (-15x - x) and ( -5 + 3 ) which comes out to -16x - 7. Now handling the right side of the graph with the same method as the left it should come out to -16x - 7. So it should be like this towards the end -16x - 7 = -16x - 7 which ultimately reduces to 0=0
