**ap bio**

I am stumped on this one. Amontg bryophytes, which of the following contain distinct stemlike axis, small leaves, and rootlike rhizoids? a. cycads b. liverworts c. mosses d. hornworts e. algae I am leaning towards mosses, but I'm really not sure.

**ap bio**

Hornworts differ from mosses and liverworts in containing: a. small leaves b. photosynthetic sporophytes c. gametphytes d. sporophytes e. spores Well, First I thought ok its small leaves and that was wrong. Next I thought it would be spores and that was wrong. My next guess ...

**PreCalc (Just Can't Comprehend)**

When I graphed it, I got a reciprocal function not a parabola. I don't know how to find a minumum that's not a parabola or a cubic. Should I just go with the guess and check and call it 20 X 20?

Find the dimensions of the rectangle with minimum perimeter if its area is 400 square meters. Find the least perimeter. I know that a rectangle has two sides that are equal and two other sides that are equal but I am unsure about what type of equation to use. I thought maybe I...

**PreCalc (still confused)**

Ok, well now I'm really confused. I thought about substituting 400/x into y but I still don't have anything to put it equal to. Can you please try to explain it.

**PreCalc (still confused)**

So basically, I have to guess and check. 20 X 20 would be the smallest but is a square. How about 16 X 25 = 82? I would much rather have a mathematical way to go about it.

so if the liver is below the diaphram and the lungs are above the diaphram isn't it inferior. Am I looking at this incorrectly?

The question states the lung is ______ to the liver I think it is inferior

**anatomy**

Yes, I do know the meanings however I am confused because they both mean that they are away from the midline of the body Inferior is from the head down lateral is away from the mid I'm thinking lateral but still not positive can you clear it up for me?

is the liver inferior or lateral to the lungs
