An easy way to answer this question is by switching the division around. To solve for x, switch the problem to say 272 / 16 =. You will quickly find the answer to be 17!

The answer is 21.0212. Don't let the fact that these are decimals trip you up. At first, it seems difficult because 7.458 has three decimals and 13.5632 has four decimals. But just add a 0 to the end of 7.458 and add them that way!

What is the information cycle?

The information cycle is simply the progression of media coverage of a newsworthy event. Basically, after an event happens, information about that event becomes available in a certain pattern. With the invention of social media, information can become available almost the instant an event happens. People will tweet about it on Twitter, or share posts about it on Facebook or Instagram. The news and blogs will also report an event the day of. Later on, we have the week of -- newspapers primarily report events during the days after and week of an event. A week after the event, you may see popular magazines, such as Time or National Geographic, report an event. After more time has passed, let's say months after, you will see academic or scholarly journals report an event. This happens after there has been time to study and draw conclusions about the event. After even more time has passed, perhaps a year or more, this is when you see the event covered in books, government publications, and reference works such as encyclopedias.
