The way people greet each other when they meet for the first time varies from culture to culture. In some cultures, people bow, and in others, they shake hands. How one shakes hands sends an important message about one’s character. In English-speaking countries, shaking hands is the custom. If done properly, a handshake gives the impression of strength and honesty, and if done improperly, it conveys weakness and dishonesty. A proper handshake has four ingredients: pressure, pumps, eye contact, and verbal message. Mr. X went to Mexico from England to manage a milk pasteurization plant. For eight months, he tried every way possible to convince his workers of the importance of punctuality and of checking every detail of their work. The response was always, “Yes, yes, we will do our best,” but nothing ever changed. Then one day an impressive new pasteurization unit arrived and was installed. To celebrate the occasion, Mr. X decided to throw a big party at the plant. The employees did most of the planning and draped the new unit with garlands. During the party one of Mr. X’s supervisors took him aside and said, “Now we see that you are Buena gente; from now on I am sure everyone will really try to do their best for you.” And so it was – neither punctuality nor quality checks were any longer needed. The party was great success, and everybody had a good time. This story illustrates the need to understand that doing business in a different culture demands an understanding of the culture. In 1976, an earthquake in Tangshan, China, killed over 250,000 people. Iran suffered more than 80,000 deaths in two massive quakes in 1990 and 2003. In an average year, earthquakes kill 10,000 people worldwide and cause millions of dollars worth of property damage. Scientist keep trying to find ways to predict earthquakes – so far without much success. Currently under study are four main methods for predicting when and where the next Big One will occur.

...specify in a variable declaration?
You must specify the variable type and an identifier.
int n; // type - int, identifier - n
6. What value is stored in uninitialized variables?
is a variable that is declared but is not set to a definite known value before it is used.
Algorithm workbench
3. Write assignment statements that perform the following operations with the variables a, b, and c.
a. Adds 2 to a and stores the result in b
b. Multiplies b times 4 and stores the result in a
c. Divides a by 3.14 and stores the result in b
d. Subtracts 8 from b and stores the result in a
Assignment statements that perform operations with the variables a, b, and c* (*Actually none of these operations involves the variable c at all... is this an error, or a 'trick answer'?):
b = a + 2
a = b * 4
b = a / 3.14
a = b – 8
4. Assume the variables result, w, x, y, and z are all integers, and that w = 5, x = 4, y = 8, and z = 2. What value will be stored in result in each of the following statements?
a. Set result = x + y
b. Set result = z * 2
c. Set result = y / x
d. Set result = y – z
result = x++ - y;
Answer -4
result = 4 – 8 = -4
result = ++w + y;
Answer
w = w + 1 = 5 + 1 = 6
result = 6 + 8 = 14

...Proportions
Problem 1
Bear population. To estimate the size of the bear population on the Keweenaw Peninsula, conservationists captured, tagged, and released 50 bears. One year later, a random sample of 100 bears included only 2 tagged bears. What is the conservationist's estimate of the size of the bear population?
I think using a simple ratio equation would work here,
let b = bear population
=
cross multiply
2b = 50*100
2b=5000 divide 2 by 5000
5000 =b
2
b=2500 answer
Problem 2
For the second problem in this assignment I am asked to solve this equation for y. The first thing I notice is that it is a single fraction (ratio) on both sides of the equal sign so basically it is a proportion which can be solved by cross multiplying the extremes and means.
y-1 = -3 this problem is a proportion
x+3 4
y-1 (x+3 = -3 (x+3) multiply both sides by x+3 – using the extreme means
x+3 4 property
y-1= -3x+3 add 1 to 3. A number that appears to be a solution but causes 4 0 in a denominator is called an extraneous solutions
y=-3x+4
4 answer
The form of equation I ended up with in problem 10 would be a linear equation. I noticed that the coefficient of x is different than the original problem is that x+3 and in my problem it is -3x/4. I could solve the problem by cross...

If x > 100 then
Y=20
Z=40
End if
2.) Design an if-then statement that assigns 0 to the variable b and assigns 1 to the variable c if variable a is less than 10. (Simple if statement)
3.) Design an if-then-else statement that assigns 0 to variable b if variable a is less than 10, otherwise it should assign 99 to variable b. (Alternative if statement)
If a < 10 then
B = 0
Else
B = 99
