### Subject: Writing

If you could travel to any country in the world, where would you go?

As a writer, it is important to capture your reader's attention. Before writing, you need to brainstorm about your topic and narrow down what it is that you want to convey to your reader. We will use the following process to write a cohesive essay on a destination you would like to visit and why! Take the reader with you on a journey and help them feel the emotions and culture of the country you have chosen. Be descriptive! Brainstorm: Jot down three countries that you would like to visit and write down three reasons for why you want to visit each country. Research: Conduct research on those countries and narrow down to one country that you find yourself most drawn to. You can use TripAdvisor to find cultural spots, websites to learn about the history, etc... as this will help you determine which country has more content you can cite in this process. Rough Draft: Begin writing. Do not worry about writing complete sentences. Use your research to write down anything and everything. This is the process where you can use broken English if desired. It is simply a measure of getting your ideas on paper and from there we will cross out, rearrange, and create an essay that is organized and has a nice flow. Revise: Here we do exactly what I have mentioned above. We will rearrange your paper. We will work on developing sentences that make sense in terms of grammar, punctuation, and also get rid of any unnecessary fluff. While it is important to be descriptive, we must avoid repeating thoughts and phrases. Final Draft: Proofread, proofread, proofread! Read the essay and see if it flows. Does the writing make sense? Are we diverting from any topics and including any unnecessary sentences? This is where we finalized our masterpiece before submission! Your essay is complete!

### Subject: Basic Math

Two angles in a triangle equal 120 degrees. What is the measure of the third angle?

A triangle is 180 degrees and there are three types of triangles -- an equilateral triangle which means all three angles equal the same, an isosceles triangle in which two angles are equal, and a scalene triangle in which all three angles have different measurements. Because we already know the sum of two angles, we simply need to subtract the total of those two angles from the 180 degrees. 180 - 120 = 60 degrees. The measure of the third angle is 60 degrees.

### Subject: Algebra

4x + 5 = 8 + 2x

In this problem, we need to determine the value of x. In order to do that, we must shift the components of our problem around to where all the values with an 'x' are on one side. 4x + 5 = 8 + 1x We will keep 4x where it is and bring the + 1x from the right side of the equation to the left. As we shift the + 1x, we need to be mindful of the signs associated with each number. As the 1x is a positive value, it will acquire a negative value as it moves to the opposite side of the equation. Hence becoming 4x + 5 - 1x = 8. Since our primary purpose is to get all the values with an 'x' to one side, we will shift the +5 to the right side of the equation. Again, we need to be mindful of the signs meaning +5 will become a -5 as it moves to the right side becoming: 4x - 1x = 8 - 5 We are able to subtract 4x - 1x because both values have an x. It would not be possible to perform this action if 1x was 1y. 4x - 1x = 3x and 8 - 5 = 3 Now our equation is 3x = 3. We still need to determine the value of x. In order to do so, we must separate 3x. When there is no sign between two numbers, it means that we are multiplying the two values and the opposite of that operation is division. As we take the 3 from 3x to the other side of the equation, we will divide. x = 3/3 x = 1 The value of x = 1.
