Question:

What is a thesis statement?

Dana H.

A thesis statement is typically one or two sentences near the beginning of a paper that state the main argument to the reader. It tells the reader what to expect from the rest of the paper, and essentially summarizes the point or position to be argued.

Question:

A homeowner is buying paint for his living room walls. If each 1-gallon can of paint covers 400 square feet, and the living room is 1500 square feet, what is the lowest number of 1-gallon paint cans that he can buy? Will he have any paint leftover? If so, how much space will the leftover paint be able to cover?

Dana H.

The homeowner needs to buy four gallons of paint in order to paint his entire living room. 400 multiplied by 4 is 1600, so he will have enough paint leftover to cover 100 square feet.

Question:

What is "literary analysis," and what is involved?

Dana H.

Literary analysis involves examining the elements of a work of literature and the ways in which they interact with one another. Often, a literary analysis involves making a claim about the work, and supporting it with evidence from the text. For example: In her gothic novel Frankenstein, Mary Shelley uses figurative language to emphasize the dangers of solitude.
