Short answers
5. What two things must you normally 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
5. Write a pseudocode statement that declares the variable cost so it can hold real numbers.
Declare Real price= 0.00
Display "the original price."

...PT1420 - Unit 5 Homework and Lab Assignment
Unit 5 Assignment 1: Homework
1.) Design an if-then statement that assigns 20 to the variable y and assigns 40 to the variable z if the variable x is greater than 100. (Simple if statement)
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
End f
4.) The symbols >, <, and == are all Relational operators.
5.) The if-then statement is an example of a conditioal structure.

...Graded Assignment
Unit Test, Part 2: Polynomials and Power Functions
Answer the questions and show your work. When you are finished, submit this assignment to your teacher through the appropriate dropbox basket.
(3 pts)
1.) Factor
100x^2 – 49
to factor, use the difference of squares formula, because both the terms are perfect squares
the difference of squares formula is a^2 – b^2 = (a-b)(a+b)
therefore
100x^2 – 49 = (10x)^2 – 7^2 = (10x – 7)(10x +7)
(5 pts)
2.) Solve
x^2 – 11x = -30
(x^2 – 11x) + 30 = -30 +30
x^2 – 11x +30 = 0
Reorder the terms:
30 + 11x + x2 = 0
Solving
30 + 11x + x2 = 0
Factor a trinomial.
(6 + x)(5 + x) = 0
Subproblem 1
Set the factor '(6 + x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:
Simplifying
6 + x = 0
Solving
6 + x = 0
Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.
Add '-6' to each side of the equation.
6 + -6 + x = 0 + -6
Combine like terms: 6 + -6 = 0
0 + x = 0 + -6
x = 0 + -6
Combine like terms: 0 + -6 = -6
x = -6
Simplifying
x = -6
Subproblem 2
Set the factor '(5 + x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:
Simplifying
5 + x = 0
Solving
5 + x = 0
Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.
Add '-5' to each side of the equation.
5 + -5 + x = 0 + -5
Combine like terms: 5 + -5 = 0
0 + x = 0 + -5
x = 0 + -5
Combine like terms: 0 + -5 = -5
x = -5 ...

What’s a Bucket List?
If you haven’t heard about the term “bucket list”, it is a list of all the goals you want to achieve,
dreams you want to fulfil and life experiences you desire to experience before you die.
Why Create a Bucket List?
If you don’t live your days by personal goals and plans, chances are you spend most of your time
caught up in a flurry of daytoday activities. Ever feel your days are passing you by without any
tangible output to speak of? What did you accomplish in the past 3 months? What are your
upcoming goals for the next 3 months? Look at the things you did and the things you’re planning
to do next – Do they mean anything to you if youare to die today? Having a bucket list reminds
you of what’s really important so you can act on them.
Even if you frequently live by goals or todo lists, they are probably framed within a certain
social context e.g. performance, career, health. A bucket list opens up the context. It’s a forum to
set anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to do, whether it’s big, small or random.
It’s just like planning ahead all the highlights you want for YOUR whole life. Even though goal ...

...Running head: FALSE RECALL
The Effect of Warning and List Type on False Recall
University of Minnesota
Abstract
This experiment (modeled after Watson, Balota, & Roediger, 2003) studied the effect of warning participants and list type on the DRM paradigm. Participants were split into warned and unwarned groups. Each participant was exposed to 12 lists containing four semantic, phonological, and hybrid list types and then asked to recall list items. It was found that hybrid lists produced the highest rate of false recall and warning participants about a critical lure reduced false recall in semantic and hybrid lists. It was concluded that hybrid lists activate both phonological and semantic representations making it more difficult to identify the critical lure. Also, it was more difficult to identify the lure in the phonological condition regardless of warning status.
The Effect of Warning and List Type on False Recall in the DRM Paradigm
What are false memories? According to Roediger, a leading expert in false memory research, false memories include remembering events that never happened or a distorted recollection of the events that actually took place (Roediger & McDermott, 1995). Interest in this subject has become increasingly popular with regard to the accuracy of eye witness testimony in court cases across the...

Week 2 Assignment

For our Week 2 assignment, in Intermediate Algebra, we were asked to solve the problem number 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. aside from completing the problem, we were also asked to write a two to three page paper while including the five given vocabulary words for the week. Please see the problem below:
Shipping restrictions. The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler.
a)
Write an inequality to describe this region.
b)
Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs?
c)
Will the truck hold 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs?
Kindly consider the five given vocabulary words:
Solid line
Dashed line
Parallel
Linear inequality
Test point
In order to solve the problem, we need to be aware that the formula to solve any linear equation is y=mx+b. with the said, we can say that we have our y- intercept which is 330. (The ordered pair 0,330 demonstrates that the y coordinate is 330). Since we have our y- intercept, we will now discover what our slope is. The formula to determine any slope of a line is
m=y1- y2
x1-x2
M= 330-0
0-100
After performing division and simplifying, we have found that the slope of our line is -3.
a) Write an inequality to describe this region.
The inequality to...
