Question:

Name and define the four types of operant conditioning. Give unique examples for each type.

Amanda T.
Answer:

1. Positive Reinforcement is defined as giving a pleasant stimulus to the subject to increase target behavior. Ex. Give a treat to your dog when he sits on command. 2. Negative Reinforcement is defined as removing an unpleasant stimulus from the stimulus to increase target behavior. Ex. A child does not have to mow the lawn if they complete all of their homework. 3. Positive punishment is defined as adding an unpleasant stimulus to decrease the target behavior. Ex. A dog gets an unpleasant zap from a collar when it barks. 4. Negative punishment is defined as removing something good to decrease target behavior. Ex. A child doesn't get dessert if they don't do their homework.

Question:

Correct these sentences and explain each correction. 1. Me and my friends went to the beach and we watched the waves for hours. 2. The cat was carried by the little girl all the way over their. 3. Sherry practiced every day because she was determined to correctly perform her routine, but others on the dance team were not that dedicated.

Amanda T.
Answer:

1. My friends and I went to the beach and we watched the waves for hours. Explanation: In the first sentence, the subject is 'me' and the verb is 'went.' If we remove the added detail of 'my friends,' the sentence reads as "Me went to the beach..." Change the subject to 'I' so that the subject and verb agree. 2. The little girl carried the cat all the way over there. Explanation: The original sentence was in passive voice, placing the object being acted upon (the cat) before the subject (the girl). This sentence also uses the incorrect word choice for 'there.' 'There' denotes a place, whereas 'their' signifies possession. 3. Sherry practiced every day because she was determined to perform her routine correctly; but others on the dance team were not that dedicated. Explanation: The original is a run-on sentence with two independent clauses. Because the second clause is closely related to the first, we use a semi-colon. The first clause contains a split infinitive. It is incorrect to place an adverb between the infinitive 'to' and the following verb, 'perform.' Place the adverb elsewhere in the sentence.

Question:

Solve the equation and simplify your answer: (x - 1)(x - 2)(x - 3)

Amanda T.
Answer:

Step 1: Multiply the first two polynomials (x - 1)(x - 2) = x(x - 2) - 1((x - 2) = x² - 2x - x + 2 = (x² - 3x + 2) Step 2: Multiply the product of the first two polynomials by the third (x² - 3x + 2)(x - 3) = x(x² - 3x +2) - 3(x² - 3x + 2) = x³ - 3x² + 2x - 3x² + 9x - 6 = x³ - 6x² + 11x - 6 x³ - 6x² + 11x - 6 is our answer!
