Question:

Pick the word that will complete the following sentence correctly. Why is the word you chose appropriate? "As a young child I read ________" vociferously/voraciously

Inactive
Shannon H.
Answer:

The answer to this question relies on being able to know what these two similar-sounding words mean, Vociferous is defined as "(especially of a person or speech) vehement or clamorous", while voracious is defined as "having a very eager approach to an activity". Because of this, voraciously is the appropriate answer for this question.

Question:

What makes a strong thesis statement in an Essay? What is the purpose of our thesis?

Inactive
Shannon H.
Answer:

A thesis statement tells what the point of an essay will be. Your thesis should consist of both a specific topic that your essay will focus on, and a controlling idea that conveys to the audience the angle from which you are approaching the topic, and the argument that you will be making in your essay. Thesis statements should be clear, concise, and disputable. They should not be a plain statement of fact, or an explanation of what you will attempt to do in your essay.

Question:

Expand these two binomials by multiplying using FOIL (5z + 4) (6z+9)

Inactive
Shannon H.
Answer:

FOIL is a mnemonic telling us our order of operations when looking at this kind of expression. First, outer, inner, last. To start we will take the first term in both binomials, for 5z and 6y and we will multiply them to yield the result 30z^2. Next, we will take the outer two values, 5z and 9, which when multiplied gives 45z. Then, we will look at the inner two values 4 and 6z, which when multiplied give us 24z. Finally, we will look at the last values in each pair 4 and 9, which multiply to give us 36. Now we will sum these values together: 30z^2 + 45z + 24z+ 36. We are able to combine the terms 45z and 24z to get 69z. So, our final result will be 30z^2 + 69z +36.
