Question:

How should I format a 5 body paragraph?

Inactive
Molly S.
Answer:

Introduction The intro should start out very general and lead to the specific point of your thesis. Sometimes an attention grabber can be used in the first sentence. The thesis should describe your main point in one sentence. Main Body Paragraphs (3) Each main body paragraph will focus on a single reason that supports your thesis. Each paragraph will have a clear topic sentence (a mini thesis that states the main idea of the paragraph) and as much elaboration as needed to get your point across. Conclusion Your conclusion begins with a restatement of your main point. It needs to be reworded. Summarize the importance of your topic and create a tone that your readers will be left with. Start out specific and then generalize and you finish.

Answer:

Steps 1) Expand (x-1)^2 using FOIL. (first, outer, inner, last) -> x^2-2x-1 2) Expand (4√(x-4)^2) by multiplying the equation by itself. -> 16(x-4) *Updated equation x^2-2x+1=16(x-4) 3) Distribute the 16 to the (x-4) -> 16x-64 * x^2-2x+1= 16x-64 4) Move the like-terms to one side. x^2- 18x+65= 0 5) Factor the left hand side. (think of multiples of 65 that add to be -18) (x-13)(x-5)=0 6) Set each equation to zero and solve. x=13, x=5 Answer - 5, 13
