On the side of his house, a man is going to build two enclosures. One enclosure for a garden and another enclosure to keep his dogs in so the dogs aren’t roaming around. It is illegal to have any dogs roaming around. He bought 180ft of fence to use and one side is already existing. Refer to the picture on the next page.

Since there are three short sides and one long side, to set up the perimeter, the short sides will be x and the long side will be y. So the equation is 3x + y = 180. The 180 comes from the 180 ft of fence the man already has. To find the total area, we need to solve the equation for y. So we subtract 3x from one side to the other. So the equation will be y = 180 – 3x

The area formula is A = xy. So you substitute the final equation you got above with the y in the area formula to end up with A = x(180-3x). Then, you multiply everything in the parenthesis by x. You get 180x – 3x^2.

To find the domain, you divide the total amount of material by the number of x’s. 180 is the total amount of material and there are 3 x’s. So divide 180 by 3. The answer is 60. So the domain is (0, 60). To find the dimensions that yield maximum area, on the calculator press the y= button and type in the final area equation we got, which is 180x – 3x^2. Then before you graph, you press the window button and enter the domain in the Xmin and Xmax slots. So it would look like Xmin = 0 and Xmax = 60. You just leave the other ones alone. Then you press zoom and 0 and it shows the graph. Refer to graph on other page. Then you press the trace button and you get the dimensions x= 30 and y= 2700. Those are your dimensions for maximum area.

To find the maximum area, all you have to do is look at your dimensions. The calculator gives you x= 30 and y= 2700. The maximum area is the y you are given, which is 2700. So your maximum area is 2,700 sq. yds. x= 30 yds and y= 90yds.

1. Could you please tell us your current projects that u are engaged in?
Effective leadership is the ability to inspire followers to listen to and follow a vision; the ability to innovate and drive an organization or people towards new ideas and directions.
Leadership may be difficult to define, yet we all have an idea of what it means to be a good leader. If we’re lucky, we’ve had a firsthand experience with a strong, effective leader. Schools, teams, clubs, professional organizations, work; even friends and family often offer us an example of a leader who stands above the rest.
Having said that let me ask you few questions that I believe will help me more get a clear concept about leadership.
2. Who is a leader?
3. Do you consider yourself as a leader and if yes why?
4. Are leader made or born?
5. What Makes a Leader?
Leadership skills can be categorized as follows:
Sharing Information
Understanding Needs and Characteristics of the group

...Essay Option #2
"If you don't want to take school seriously, then I guess I’ll look forward to seeing you working your shift at McDonald’s when I stop by for the fries”. This is what my mom told me when I was an eighth grader. My parents are very accomplished people; my mother is a registered nurse and my father is a lawyer. So her words cut deep and hit me where it hurt. Why was she telling me this? Because I deserved every bit of it. I was at a point in my life when I was very immature. I was a bad egg, a wannabe “cool kid”, and a class clown.
I used to be a small kid, but I grew taller way before others in my own age group. So after a while, my self-esteem rose back to its normal height and I became used to being the biggest kid in my class. This followed me all through middle school. When I was an eighth grader, I took advantage of this and used the size of my body to inflict fear in other students. Not only did I utilize my height as a fear factor, but also I imposed dread with the people I hung around. I was what is described as a “tomboy”, and I was friends with guys that I would use as threats to get what I desired from others. I was a bully. My school was quite loose with the bullying policy, so every time I got in trouble, I would weasel myself out of the situation by getting my friends to bear false witness to my fabricated stories. By the middle of the school year, it seemed like I was more feared than adored by most of my fellow students....

...Sports are a very important part of my life, especially basketball. I have been playing my entire life because it was such a huge part of my life growing up with my father being a coach and my brother who was an exceptional player when he participated in grade school, high school, and college. I currently play for my dad who is the head coach and my brother who is an assistant coach at Holy Cross High School. They have taught me so much about the game and how it is much more than a game. They showed and continue to show me how basketball teaches team work, success, failure, and respect. Those are only a handful of things along with a plethora of others that the game teaches. But I am writing about basketball to tell a story of failure that changed my life forever. My sophomore year of high school our team made it to the semi-final in the state tournament losing to the soon to be state champions by two points. This loss struck me and my teammates hard but it made us willing to do whatever it took to get us one game further to the state championship next year and that's exactly what we did. We persevered and worked extremely hard and our dream came true, we won the semi-final game my junior year and went on to play in the state championship. We lead the whole game and then we fell apart. In the final quarter we depicted ourselves to hear that final buzzer and look at the score board seeing our dreams crushed as we lost by five points. This was more than just...

...As a little girl my mother had always told me that education was very important. She’d always emphasize that she wanted me to be the first one in my family to go to college right out of high school. Of course, I didn’t really understand or care because I was so young. Now that I am in high school I take into my mothers words and realize that college is important. But now the question is, “What college do I want to attend?” I have taken into consideration many other colleges. I believe that the University of Oklahoma is the best college for me. OU can offer me a wonderful education, a path to success, and a chance to major in Interior Design.
One reason why I believe the University of Oklahoma is the school for me concerns the significance of my education. I have always heard that OU was a great school but in all honesty I didn’t really know why. I began to do some research on this university and found out that it is ranked 101 nationwide out of over 1,600 schools. I have always known that there are over 40 sororities in this school. This university also has over 300 student clubs and organizations. In all case, what isn’t there to do in OU?
Not only will I get an education but I will also get a path to success. The faculty and staffs of OU is loyal and trustworthy. I know that they will lead me to the positive direction to success for a better future. Because I want to major in Interior Design, I know...

...high-achieving high-school seniors in the bottom quarter of family income went to one of the 238 most selective colleges, compared with 78 percent of students from the top quarter (Markell). Certainly, these numbers show that students that come from low income families aren’t getting the opportunities that they deserve. With college costs going nowhere but up, students from low-income families face tough decisions. Some students choose to attend communitycollege while some make the decision to take out additional loans. There are also those who choose to drop out because they can no longer sustain the cost of college. Those who don’t have the money to go to a selective college are often not reaching their full potential. Therefore, college cost should be lowered so that more people can have the opportunity to get higher education.
Such a push is needed; firstly, due to the continuous rise in tuition, higher education is becoming less and less affordable for low-income students. According to the Journal of College Admission, from 1982 to 2007, college tuition and fees increased by 439 percent, while median family income increased by 147 percent. Last year, the net cost at four-year public universities amounted to 28 percent of median family income, while a four-year private college or university consumed 76 percent of median family income...

...revised edition by Malcolm Cowley, 1951), is a beautifully written but disjointed account of the general decline of a few glamorous Americans in Europe. The book failed because readers during the Great Depression of the 1930's were not interested in Jazz Age "parties." Fitzgerald died before he completed The Last Tycoon (1941), a novel about Hollywood life.
Critics generally agree that Fitzgerald's early success damaged his personal life and marred his literary production. This success led to extravagant living and a need for a large income. It probably contributed to Fitzgerald's alcoholism and the mental breakdown of his wife, Zelda. The success also probably led to his physical and spiritual collapse, which he described frankly in the long essay The Crack-Up (1936). Fitzgerald spent his last years as a scriptwriter in Hollywood and died there on Dec. 21, 1940. A few years after his death, his books won him the recognition he had desired while alive.

In 1925, The Great Gatsby was published and hailed as an artistic and material success for its young author, F. Scott Fitzgerald. It is considered a vastly more mature and artistically masterful treatment of Fitzgerald's themes than his earlier fiction. These works examine the results of the Jazz Age generation's adherence...

12. When you flip a light switch, the light seems to come on almost immediately, giving the impression that the electrons in the wiring move very rapidly.
Part A: In reality, the individual electrons in a wire move very slowly through wires. A typical speed for an electron in a battery circuit is 5.0x10 to the -4th meters per second. How long does it take an electron moving at that speed to travel a wire 1.0 centimeter, or 1.0x10 to the -2nd?
Part B: Electrons move quickly through wires, but electric energy does. It moves at almost the speed of light, 3.0x10 to the 8th meters per second. How long would it take to travel 1.0 centimeters at the speed of light?
Part C: Electrons in an ordinary flashlight can travel a total distance of only several centimeters .suppose the distance an electron can travel in a flashlight circuit is 15 centimeters, or 1.5x10 to the -1st meter. The circumference of the earth is about 4.0x10 to the 7th meters. How many trips around the earth could a pulse of electric energy make at the speed of light in the same time an electron could travel through 15 centimeters of a battery circuit in 5.0x10 to the -4th meters per second?
For part A, the first step is to put (5.0) to the 10th to the -4th. The numerator would be (0.00050) if someone were trying to put 5.0x10 to the -4th in the form it’s supposed to be in. For the second scientific...
