What happens if I drag the box in the corner of the cell down?
By dragging down the box, you will either copy the initial input into all those boxes or apply the same formula to all the boxes. It ends in the last cell that you selected.
Subject: Library and Information Science
A patron needs information on the Gracchi Brothers, who were generals in Roman history. However, they cannot find books specifically on the generals. How would you look for this information?
First, I would look for any databases that the library has so I can search for online information. If the patron is required to have a book for the project, I would go to the Roman section of the 900s and look through the books' indexes. While there may not be a book specifically about the generals in the library, there may be small sections within the books. The index usually is more specific about the topics found within the book and can narrow down useful information. Finally, depending on when the patron needs the materials, I would also search to see if any other libraries have books on the topic. These can be placed on hold for the patron. I would continue to ask questions during this time to get more information on the topic and what actions the patron has already taken. This way, I can help them the most.
What is the difference between Shakespeare's categories of plays?
Shakespeare's plays are divided into comedies, tragedies, and histories. An example of a tragedy would be Romeo and Juliet. A comedy would be Twelfth Night and a history would be Henry V. Some plays can fall into multiple categories. Historical plays covered events in English history and a majority covered the lived of different monarchs. Tragedies had characters make mistakes and then have to deal sadly with the results of those mistakes. For instance, although Romeo and Juliet starts happily, Romeo's actions cause him to be exiled and eventually believe that Juliet is dead and kill himself to be with her. This ultimately leads to Juliet's death as well. Comedies are usually fun and light-hearted and while mistakes are made, turn into happy circumstances by the end. They often have assumptions or mistaken identities involved. Twelfth Night has characters swap genders while pining for people from afar. This creates hilarious events because people don't realize that they have fallen in love with other people.
