Correctly punctuate the following sentence: While driving home from work Kevins car began to slide on the snowy wet pavement fortunately he was able to safely pull over to the side of the road.
While driving home from work, Kevin's car began to slide on the snowy, wet pavement. Fortunately, he was able to safely pull over to the side of the road. "While" is a starter word for an introductory clause, which requires a comma to separate two clauses. "Kevins" requires an apostrophe because it is possessive; the car belongs to Kevin. A comma is necessary between the words "snowy" and "wet" because they are coordinate adjectives that separately modify the noun, "pavement." "Fortunately" requires a comma because it is an introductory adverbial element.
How does the media's representation of Violence Against Women influence society's views, specifically regarding who is responsible for ending the abuse?
With media's lack of focus on the responsibility of the abuser and society to put an end to the violence, women are led to believe that they must deal with the violence on their own. With the lack of information on society’s responsibilities and influences, abused women do not feel that they have support from society.
David has $30, which is six dollars more than twice what Julia has. How any dollars does Julia have?
The unknown amount that we are being asked to find will be represented by the variable x. The problem states that $30 is $6 more than two times x. Therefore, the equation will be: 2x + 6 = 30 To solve this equation we must get the variable, x, by itself: 2x = 30 - 6 2x = 24 x = 24 / 2 x = 12 We have found that Julia has $12.
