A subway system is expanded to provide service to a growing suburb. A bike-sharing program is adopted to encourage non-motorized transportation. 1. (To alleviate rush hour traffic jams in a congested downtown area, stoplight timing is coordinated.) Regarding the text in between parentheses, choose one of the following: Which choice best maintains the sentence pattern already established in the paragraph? A. NO CHANGE B. Coordinating stoplight timing can help alleviate rush hour traffic jams in a congested downtown area. C. Stoplight timing is coordinated to alleviate rush hour traffic jams in a congested downtown area. D. In a congested downtown area, stoplight timing is coordinated to alleviate rush hour traffic jams.
The answer is C because it most closely maintains the sentence pattern established by the two preceding sentences, which begin with a noun and passive verb phrase (“A subway system is expanded,” “A bike-sharing program is adopted”).
How important are AP and IB courses in high school?
The most selective colleges in the country look not only at extracurricular activities, they also look at International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement credits taken through high school. These can be of vital importance to receive college credit while taking college-level courses in high school! In my experiences, I already had an entire semester of college finished by the time I graduated high school! So, both AP and IB courses can be of great importance not only to you, but to your family, your future, and your chances to be admitted to your dream college, wherever that may be!
Three students are sitting on a school bus. Billy is 3 feet directly behind Michael and 4 feet directly left of Colton. Billy makes a paper airplane and throws it to Michael. Michael throws the airplane to Colton, who throws it back to Billy. How far has the paper airplane traveled?
Well, regarding the Pythagorean Theorem in Algebraic terms, the answer is 12 feet. The formula for the Pythagorean Theorem is a2 + b2 = c2. In this case, the "triangle" of friends is regarded as a "3-4-5" triangle, the 5 not being mentioned. By finding the unknown side using the formula listed above, 3 squared (9) plus 4 squared (16) is 25, the root being 5 and finding our missing side. If Billy throws it to Michael, that adds 3 feet. When thrown to Colton by Michael, we are adding our missing side of 5 feet, totaling to 8 feet. When Colton throws the plane back to Billy, it adds another 4 feet, with a grand total of 12 feet thrown among the three boys.
