Question:

How do I write an organized paragraph?

Michael S.

Remember that a paragraph is like a body of information where the information within it is all related to the topic sentence of our paragraph. The key to having an organized paragraph is to having a clear topic sentence, which tells the reader what you are going to describe in the paragraph. This first sentence acts as a "map" for your paragraph. When you have written your paragraph, make sure to go back and check to see that all information relates back to the topic sentence and you have included all relevant details. Finish your paragraph with a concluding sentence which summarizes the main idea of the paragraph. Then you can go ahead and check for errors in grammar and punctutation.

Question:

How do I find the slope of 3y+2x=5?

Michael S.

In order to answer this problem, remember that first we must remember the slope-intercept form of a linear equation, y=mx+b, where m represents the slope. Currently we have the standard form of the equation and must convert to the slope-intercept form in order to find our slope, or "m." Step 1: 3y+2x=5 (First, subtract "2x" from both sides, since we want the term with "y" to be all by itself) Step 2: 3y= -2x+5 (Now, we must divide both sides by 3 so that we can get "y" by itself. Remember that whenever we are finding the slope-intercept form, we want y to have a coefficient of "1.") Step 3: y=(-2/3)x+5 (Now we have our slope-intercept form. What is the slope?) Step 4: m= -2/3 (The slope is equal to -2/3 because it is the coefficient of x in slope-intercept form. We are done :) )

Question:

How are the central and peripheral nervous systems different? How are they similar?

Michael S.

The central nervous system is central to the main parts of our body, including the brain and spinal cord. Differently, the peripheral nervous system is on the "periphery," and therefore it includes the nervous connections that stem out from the brain and spinal cord. These nerves can be more specialized and connect to things like our muscles. The peripheral and central nervous system work together by relaying information to each other. Information from sensory neurons are processed in the periphery and are relayed back to the brain (PNS --> CNS) for processing. The brain then sends another signal for an action to take place, such as pushing back your hand when you touch a hot stove (CNS --> PNS).
