science
The answer is NO - the universe is NOT geocentric. Geocetricity was a belief held many, but we have since found out that our Earth is not the ceter of everything; far from it.

Science
My fingers don't seem to be working properly this morning; it is "PLUTO", of course, NOT "Plut". Sorry!

Science
I would say the answer is b. Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are indeed located between Mars and Plut.

Science
That is correct.

geology - thank you
Thank you and I am glad I could contribute a tiny morsel to this wonderful site. I think you and all the other teachers are just fantastic. Thank you for all the help you are giving everyone every day.

geology - thank you
Thank you so much Ms. Sue and merci beaucoup SraJMcGin. I have found the term I was searching for; it is BAJADA.

geology
Merci beaucoup, Mme; je vais étudier les emplacements que vous avez proposés.

geology
Thank you Ms. Sue but, unfortunately, this is not the term I was searching for. (It is a longer name. I know there is a pediment, but that, too, is due to erosion, if I remember correctly.)

geology
I know that a peneplain is a flat area due to erosion, but what is the term for a flat area due to deposition? I am generally very successful with searching the internet, but I could not find the term I am looking for. Could you please help? Thank you!

5th grade
How much is 3x8, and can you divide that number by 6???

????
Could you, perhaps, be referring to Andea Bocelli?

english
Here is one I wrote sometime ago (and hold the copyright to): "A Summer's Night" Calm and peaceful is the night, All the stars are gleeming bright; Just a gentle evening breeze Is tenderly flirting with some leaves. Then, suddenly, vivid and strong A turbulent st...

German
Maybe you could write your first sentence in English, so I can translate it into proper German. As you wrote it, I don't know what you would like to say.

German
Sorry, I just noticed a typing error: ".....weil mein Vater ein Freund des Vizepräsidenten......"

German
The first sentence does not make any sense to me. Es ist gut in der Lage zu sein, mit anderen Menschen über gute Programme sprechen zu können. Obwohl jeder andere Interessen hat, gibt es doch immer etwas, worüber man diskutieren kann. Ich denke, daß es bes...

English
3. small typing error: The temperature here is neither low nor high.

English
Thank you so much!

English
One more question, please. I know it is commonly accepted to say, for example: He is taller than her. But isn't that grammatically incorrect? Should it not be: He is taller than she (is) Thank you!

English
Thank you very much!

English
Could you please tell me if I placed these commas correctly? 1) With all this rain, I, too, am beginning to miss the sunshine. 2) They predicted a nice weekend, though. 3) Luckily, it isn't cold. Thank you.

English
I think when saying "I am listening to the news", we usually mean that we are listening to a news program (maybe on the radio).

English
I would say that 2, 4, 5, 7 & 8 are correct. I have never eaten gimbaps, but I know what they are.

English
Sandy could be short, among others, for Sandra, Alexandra (female) or Alexander (male).

Reading
Are you asking whether it is a meteor or a meteorite that hit the beach? If so, then it is a meteorite. (Meteor is the streak of light that you see in the sky.)

English
I think the grammatically correct answer should really be: "neither do I"

Fracture Math words
Deduct the number of letters and you'll get the answer. For example: 3/4 of cube is a young bear - use only three of the letters in "cube" and you'll get CUB (a young bear). Now you try the others.

Fracture Math word
1) Find three adjacent letters in the word "kilogram" that represent something consisting of wood. 2) Skip one of the five letters in "space" and you will find the answer.

Fracture Math word
Use only three of the five letters from the word "digit"; what does one generally do with a shovel?

geography
I believe the correct answer is D

math
Reiny is right - the answer is 3:50

French
Oh, I see - thank you so very, very much!!!

French
Could you please tell my why it is: "Une vraie joie de vivre habite cette famille" and not: "Une vraie joie de vivre vit cette famille" Merci beaucoup!

french
I think it should be: Samedi je jouerai au tennis avec mon père.

Grammar (will you check these please)
I am sorry Ms. Sue and GuruBlue - I didn't see your answers. They came up while I was writing and posting.

Grammar (will you check these please)
On 6: I would have said: More favorably received 15: I listened more calmly 3: farthest from my mind ??? 4: most finely carved 7: ran fastest 10: went most smoothly But I am only guessing!

English
For 7 I would have put: When the students want to raise their grades, you usually study more. For 8: We used to have a problem with the dofgs; now you can't hear them bark at all. For 9: The baseball was thrown far and wide, so the pitcher ruined his image. I am only guess...

English
Can't is a contraction of the two words CAN NOT; therefore: "I can't do it" is the same as saying "I can not do it."

English
You're welcome.

English
I think that 2 is correct. If the word ends with an "s", then we do not add another "s" after the apostrophe.

English
I think it means to do things in a different way than they are ususally done.

English
I would have chosen "approachable" also.

language
Thank you, Ms Sue; I enjoy helping others.

language
Sorry, Ms. Sue - your post came in while I was writing.

language
thirsty - thirst angry - anger grocery - groceries navy - navies pay - payed (the noun:payment) health - has no plural I don't think there is such a word as "prettiness"

English
5. I am not sure that a fashion designer actually MAKES the clothes he/she designs. 6. fashion

grammer
Also, please note that it is grammar, not grammer.

grammer
In my opinion the correct one is 3.

Earth science
If I remember my geology lesson correctly, Earth's layers are from center to the top: inner core outer core lower mantle upper mantle astenosphere mantle crust lithosphere

Earth science
That would be the outer core.

English
I have seen samulnori perform and they were excellent.

synonyms
I don't believe that from the choice you have given that "d" is the correct answer. "Retrogression" means "going back".

language expression
In addition to what Writeacher has told you, please recheck your answers to 12, 13, 15 and 17.

language expression
You're very welcome.

language expression
1) B 4) H 5) B

grammer
Since "man" and "woman" are antonyms, I assume the answer could be: man:woman: : curved:straight

French
I may b e wrong, but shouldn't #6 have been : nous nous écrivons

English
Thank you, Ms. Sue!

English
Sorry, Ms.Sue, when I posted my answer, yours didn't show up on my computer yet, or I would not have answered that post.

English
20a is correct My best friend and I are going.....

French/Sra
Thank you, Sra.

French/Sra
Shouldn't it have been: "j'ai besoin DES nouvelles sandales blanches"

Science
I believe they are called isotopes.

English
In certain parts of Europe persimmons are called "kaki".

French
Something appears to be wrong with 1.6 I would say: je ne la parle pas 2.2 I am not sure if it should not have been: j'en ai aucune 3.2 Should it not have been: "jus d'orange"?

math
Thank you so much for that explanation. Have a great day!

math
I am sorry to ask this question, but should the ft not have been converted to inches first? The way I see it, the model is 1/80 of the original. 60' = 720" 720" divided by 9" = 80" 35' = 420" 420 divided by 80 = 5.25 Am I correct in my reasoning?

Earth Science
I think it's A (rhyolitic)

French

6. Ne sont-ils pas tristes?

One more pronunciation: au - similar to the "ow" in "town".

german
There is still "ei" which is pronounced similar to the "i" in "like",and there is "ie" which is simply a longer "i". Also, vowels that are followed by two consonants are pronounced shorter; e.g. the "a" in "das F...

The German alphabet is 26 letters, like in English. (Of course there are still the Umlaute and the "scharfe S", but you don't use these when saying the alphabet.) As to the pronunciation, I know how to pronounce it, but don't know quite how to "write&quo...

GERMAN for BRITT
Just in case you didn't see my correction to your earlier post, I am repeating it here. Because the gender for "Mädchen" is neutral, you need to replace "sie" with "es" throughout your story. "Es war einmal ein junges Mädchen. E...

I just found another word for fashion designer: STYLISTE

French
You're welcome.

Possibly, but I really don't know. I'm sorry.

French
I believe it's couturier.

5th grade
You are very welcome.

5th grade
I am probably terribly wrong, and if so, I am sorry, but should the answer not have been 3 7/12 Should 4 10/12 not have been SUBTRACTED from 8 3/12?

GRAMMER
Also, I think you meant to say: HESITATION, not hassitation.

GRAMMER
4. can't (not "cant")

German rules for JJ
Many of your questions had to do with CASES; in German there are three genders (masculine, feminine and neutral) and the CASES for them are as follows: MASCULINE: nominative - DER Vater ist groß the father is big genitive - der Hut DES Vaters ist neu the father's hat...

History Quick?
I read somewhere, that Andrew Jackson wanted ALL white men to vote, not just upper-class ones. So, if that is true, then your sentence should have read: Jackson's supporters felt like all white men should be allowed to vote.
