Question:

Plant A is currently 1.5in tall. It can grow 12-1.5in = 10.5in before it outgrows the greenhouse. In order to determine how long it will take the plant to grow 10.5in, 10.5/2 = 5.25 weeks, because it will grow 2in a week, meaning to convert the length into weeks it must be divided by the conversion given in the problem of 2in to 1 week. The same can be done for Plant B using cm. First, the height of the greenhouse needs to be converted from feet to inches to centimeters. 1 ft = 12 inches x 2.55 cm = 30.6 cm Plant B can grow 30.6 - 6 = 24.6 cm before it outgrows the greenhouse. It will take 24.6cm/5cm = 4.92 weeks for Plant B to outgrow the greenhouse. Plant B will outgrow the greenhouse in 4.92 weeks, compared to Plant A outgrowing it in 5.25 weeks, meaning Plant B will outgrow it first.

When examining classic literary characters, Emma, the title character from Jane Austen's "Emma" stands out as a clear choice to adapt for the 21st century. In the novel she is presented as a member of the upper class who is invested in matchmaking those she perceives as "less fortunate." Emma would thrive in the social media fueled environment of the past decade. She is constantly gossiping with her friends and family in the novel and uses the surface information she can glean from small talk to and discourage her protege, Harriet, from marrying a farmer and instead encouraging her to pursue the cold and unfeeling Mr. Elton. Emma's manipulation would fit right into the current culture of social media and reality tv. She would be able to judge future partners based on their profiles and how they are discussed on Twitter and use that information to set up the people in her life. Emma's toxic manipulation in the novel would be aided by the nature of social media. Emma's intelligence and driven disposition would help her to shine in the current culture of entrepreneurship and independence. The desire to be independent and in control within the confines of the societal roles expected of an upperclass lady in Regency England pushes Emma into manipulating her fellow characters. If she was given the opportunities of present day England she may use that same desire to pursue a more meaningful outlet. The Emma of the Regency era pales in comparison to who the Emma of the 21st century could be. Emma of current day England would thrive in the society built on social media profiles and the opportunities to be independent. She might even become a better version of herself when given the chances not afforded to her in the novel. With the chance to put energy into building a career, she could put aside her manipulative tendencies and instead see her friends and family as they are, without discouraging their relationships and pursuits, even with social media profiles to peruse and judge.
