I don't really see your question in here. What do you need help with?
July 3, 2009

I figured I'd jump in here relatively shortly after you posted this just so you don't check back a day later and see this question. What have you done with these questions? Let us know so we know how to help you. Post your work and your solutions or post your question ...

Team building and conflict resolution
Hi Rene. We actually don't give out grades here at Jiskha, so we won't be graded on anything here. :-) Other than knowing what the Tuckman model is, I'm not sure what the problem is with this assignment. I would start by looking through your books and notes to find...

Be careful with that response, though. That tends to set up what one of my Theology teacher called a "Vending Machine God." This is where we simply ask God for stuff in prayers and it's like we think we're putting money into a vending machine. Enough prayers...

Hinduism Essay-help
You still must take a position and stick with it or you'll end up putting the reader to sleep and lose focus of your paper. I would begin with the idea of how Hinduism is different than Western religious traditions because it allows for such a wide range of beliefs. In ...

So you're basically asking if it's right that when someone has a broken foot, they sometimes need to use crutches? Yes...I think that's a pretty safe bet ;-)

pronoun case
Hi Nikki. I'm going to give you instructions on how to make something that will help make this easier to understand. Draw a circle on a piece of paper. In the middle of it, write "Verb." On the left of the circle, draw an arrow pointing left. Above that arrow ...

To add to Sra's answer, much of this depends on where the language is spoken. There are not many areas that use the Vosotros form. The way I learned in high school is to use the vosotros form there. This is because the "tu" is informal. When I got to college, my ...

Some problems to consider: 1) Death from a single car accident rarely, if ever, kills 5000. 2) Car accidents tend not to be intentional. More people die from car accidents every month - not car manslaughter. 3) The term "closer to home" is not very well defined here...

Hinduism's growth probably has more to do with the fact of its adaptability. Hinduism is not as dogmatic as other religious faiths. It developed over many different cultures and many different faiths over a very long period of time. As a result, it is still developing. And...

Let's break down what the words mean...then we'll understand it. Percent (%) means "per 100." So what you want to do is divide that number by 100. If you say 50%, that means 50/100 If you say 22%, that means 22/100 If you say 225%, that means 225/100 So since...

It means you forgot to post your thoughts of what the answer is or what you would do to try to solve the answer. If you don't post that, we don't know what you don't understand and we can't help you.

$142.60. You didn't read the question carefully is all it looks like. You figured out how much the markup would be rather than the price he paid for it. Subtract 230-87.40 and you get $142.60 So he will buy it for $142.60, mark it up 87.40, and sell it for $230. Matt

I know this seems like a somewhat silly question, but what shape is a pizza slice? I know most of us are going to say "triangle." Is it a triangle? Can a triangle have a curved line in it or do all lines have to be straight? I know we might say curvalinear triangle, ...

GUI/Web Editor Writing (HTML)
If you are not sure where to start, I always look at pages similar to the web page I am making. I write down what I see and what I like about each. I write down different elements. I then go to my notebook and sketch out a basic layout. From there, I write down the topics of ...

Social Studies
Remember also to identify the difference between empowering someone and enabling them. The people Ms. Sue mentioned were empowering people. They were able to give people the strength to do what they felt was the right thing. The Civil Rights movement in America got a huge kick...

I have to be honest and say I have not read the book. I might have read the Cliff Notes when I was in high school, but don't remember. And no, I don't recommend that to anyone. I feel like an idiot as an adult now when people my age discuss literature simply because I ...

The radius is 1/2 of the diameter, which is the width all the way across. Area = pi x radius^2 Circumference = pi x diameter If you have the radius, you can figure you the circumference. Circ = pi x 2 x radius Vice versa for Area if you have the diameter (divide that by 2 and ...

But we don't really have to think of conflict, etc. as abusive. Granted, violence is as is domination. In any group of people that are close to each other, especially ones that care about each other, there is always going ot be tension when they are around each other too ...

I don't think you even defined what you're researching. Disciplined? How? Spanking is discipline to some while it is out right retched to others. When did grades become the determiner for adjustment and socially skilled? I'm curious whether this was a last minute ...

Least and greatest values should be obvious. 1, 3, 5, 77, 1923, 9999, 1003938, Imagine it's money. The least value is what you DON'T want to have. (1) The greatest value is what you DO want to have ( 1003938 ) The median is different: a) Count how many numbers there ...

I assume that's polytheism. I won't give the answer directly, but will tell you how to figure this one out. Think about words with "poly" in it. Polynomial is a shape with MORE THAN ONE side. Polyangular means MORE THAN ONE angle. St. Polycarp...well..was ...

HUM 130 Religions of the World
I thought questions like this would be easy to answer until I actually moved to Asia. It is interesting to see how much stuff is done for actual religious reasons and how much is done simply because it's tradition. And this is in one small country - Taiwan. I'm sure it...

Anything is possible. It's POSSIBLE that your teacher might have a secret answer "z" that (s)he keeps in his/her back pocket. On the day you turn in the homework, it's POSSIBLE that the teacher might jump out and giggle while simultaneously crying and say, &...

A few key terms in your math problem: "is" means "equals" "of" means multiply. % is "per 100" (Think of 1 cent being 1/100 of a dollar) So, from there, translate your equation. We know that $300 is 12% of last year's budget. So: 300...

Good answer by Guru. To expand on it a little bit more, knowledge in itself isn't bad. The problem comes in with how we use knowledge. Notice that after eating the fruit, they are ashamed of themselves. Before that time, the focus of the world was how beautiful the world ...

Do you need to make it longer or is it time to tie it together? As someone who moved to the exact opposite - from the suburbs of Cincinnati to a crappy, noise-filled small town in Taiwan where people can't drive, I understood this completely and loved the essay. I think ...

Get y on one side alone: -2/4 = 1/3y Multiply both sides by 3y to get it out of the denominator: -6y/4 = 1 multiply both sides by 4: -6y = 4 Divide both sides by -6 y = -4/6 Check it: 1/4 - 2/(3)(-4/6) = 3/4 - 1/(3)(-4/6) 3*(-4/6) = -12/6 = -2 1/4 - -1 = 3/4 - -(1/2) 1 1/4 = 3...

I just wanted to say I have seen you getting better in math as time goes on. You take the ideas presented to you and do a really good job of figuring out how to apply them. Noticed your hard work and thought I'd give you a kudos. I notice other hard workers too. But I tend...
