Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five A company is projecting sales (S), measured in thousands of units, of a new product. To do so, it is using this formula, in which "m" refers to the months after production starts:36 = -¾ m2 + 6m + 51 S = -¾m2 + 6m + 51 In what month will sales drop below to 36,000 units?(a) Month 8(b) Month 9(c) Month 10(d) Month 12Math

### Title Text:

Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five (d) is the correct answer. This is a quadratic equation. Set S to 36 and solve: 36 = -¾ m2 + 6m + 510 = -¾ m2 + 6m + 15You can now use the general quadratic formula (which test takers are given) Putting in the numbers for a, b and c, you have: That works out to ... and the two solutions are -2 and 10. You could also do the problem by trial and error, substituting the four answer choices into the original equation. Mathbacknext

Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five is the correct answer. In the original sentence, the verb “is” does not agree with the subject “extra pens and notepads.” The revision in answer (a) fixes the problem by using the verb “are” which agrees with the subject.Reasoning Through Language Artsbacknext

Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five Clay soil forms a fairly effective barrier against the movements of water. It also swells and shrinks significantly as its water content changes. Sandy soil, in contrast, allows water to move freely and does not change shape as the water content varies. In which statement is the appropriate soil selected for its intended site?(a) Sandy soil would make a good lining for a toxic waste site.(b) Clay soil would work well in a drain field (c) Clay soil would be a good foundation for a large building. (d) Clay soil would form a good liner if a person built a pond.(e) A sandy lake bottom would prevent water from seeping out of the lake.Scienceback

### Title Text:

Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five (d) is the correct answer.Clay soil absorbs and holds more water than sandy soil. Its ability to swell or shrink as the water content changes should help to maintain the pond by retaining more water. Because of its shifting characteristics, clay soil would not be a good choice for building a stable foundation. Sciencebacknext

Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five Choose the one best answer to each question.Questions 1 and 2 are based on the following information.The history of the world is filled with stories of people migrating. Migration is the movement of people from one place to another as they seek a new home. Famine, overpopulation, limited resources, war, and religious and political persecution "push" immigrants to move to another country. Hopes for employment and a better life "pull" immigrants to new places.Millions have migrated to North America since the 1600s. Spanish, French, English, and Dutch immigrants were the first European settlers to establish permanent colonies. They settled in lands originally populated by people from Asia. Many people from Africa were driven from their homes at this time to be enslaved to work in colonies in the Americas.Social Studiesbackcontinue

Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five Throughout the 1800s, immigrants looking for employment came to North America from Japan, China, and southeastern Europe. In the 1970s and 1980s, Southeast Asians, Latin Americans, and Caribbeans migrated to North America. Many of these immigrants fled from war-torn countries, political persecution, and economic difficulties.Question 1: The government of a country may restrict the number of immigrants allowed to enter that country. These restrictions on immigration are most likely based on what belief?(a) An economy can support unlimited numbers of people.(b) The “push” factors justify most immigration.(c) Immigrants enrich the culture of a country.(d) A country has a limited number of jobs and services. (e) A government should not interfere with the migration of people. Social Studiesback

### Title Text:

Title Text Body Level One Title Text Body Level Two Title Text Body Level Three Title Text Body Level Four Title Text Body Level Five (d) is the correct answer.This question requires you to focus on a universal immigration issue that is related to the information but newly introduced by the question. It is a general case of a concrete situation that faces all countries—that is, the regulation of immigration to a country. The concept of scarcity is the only logical reason for restrictions among the alternatives offered. Social Studiesbacknext

For your first pick, there are 10 marbles, and you have 8 chances to pick a red or blue. If you are successful, then 9 marbles remain, and you have 4 chances to pick one that is not yellow and not the color you picked first. Multiply the probabilities: 8/10 * 4/9 = 0.3555, or about 36 percent..Mathbacknext
