Answer:

The correct answer to this problem is B. The verb "aller," when conjugated in the passé composé, is part of the verbs that fall into the "house of être." These verbs in the past tense do not conjugate with the past tense of avoir, but rather être. Thus, the sentence should read as follows: Hier, je suis allée chez Margot pour faire les photos.

Answer:

The correct answer to this problem is C. Sometimes it can be difficult to recognize poor grammar, especially when the grammar mistakes are those involving commas. I can help you to recognize improper grammar to further elevate your writing abilities. The comma used after the word "demanding" is unnecessary, as it takes away from the clarity of the sentence. It would be better phrased in the following manner: Basketball is demanding, but it is a rewarding sport that puts my physical abilities to the test. or, Basketball is a demanding, rewarding sport that puts my physical abilities to the test, or, Basketball may be demanding, but fact that it puts my physical abilities to the test makes it a rewarding sport.

Question:

If x=2 and y=6, how much greater is the value of (3x+y^2) than (2x^2+y)?

Answer:

Let's look at each equation separately, then compare the end values. If we plug the numbers 2 and 6 into the places of x and y, respectively, then in the first equation we end up with the equation of 3(2)+(6^2). We can simplify this down to (6+36), which comes out to 42. Let's do the same for the second equation. If we plug in our values, we get (2(2^2)+(6)). Because of order of operations, we will first take care of the exponent present, reducing our equation to 2(4)+(6). After multiplication, we are brought to (8+6), which is equal to 14. Finally, since the question is asking for how much greater the value of the first equation is than the second, we will subtract the value of (2x^2+y) from (3x+y^2). Thus, (42-14), which gives us a final answer of 28.
