Question:

After a full day of class, Julie goes home and spends and additional 2 hours reviewing and studying her notes. She does this each day for the next week, when her test is due. After a full day of class, Michael goes home and spends the rest of the night playing video games. He opens up his book to study 2 DAYS before his exam. Whose studying technique is more effective for passing their exam? Julie or Michael?

Answer:

Although Julie and Michael have covered all of their exam material before test day, one of them is more likely to lose this information on the day of the test. Since Michael crammed all of his studying in 2 days before, he is more likely to forget some of that information on test day, Julie trained her brain to retain her notes at least a week before, so she will not have this brain crash on test day. Therefore, Julie's method of studying is more effective.

Scenario 2 has the correct [no] response. Since the statement is commanding, a correct answer requires a firm response.

Answer:

First, plug in the value for x for all x's in the equation. 8(1)-6 should be the new equation. Next, using the laws of PEMDAS, you should multiply 8 x 1 before subtracting 6 from that value. 8x1 =8 8-6 =2 The CORRECT answer is 2!
