  1. I disagree.

    In the poem (below), I've made bold the part of the poem in which the answer lies. Please re-think.

    In Flanders Fields
    by John McCrae, May 1915

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep,
    though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

  2. Thanks that helped :)

  3. You're welcome.

    WWI poetry is interesting to read through ... the work of many poets. This poem is an excellent contrast to Wilfred Owen's "Dulce et Decorum Est" and others, as well as Siegfried Sassoon's (and those of many other poets). Click on Collections (at the left) below:

    Can someone show how to this question. Loga(x+3) + Loga(x-3) = 3 I don't know if I'm typing this correctly the a is the base. So, I'm thinking, Loga((x+3)(x-3)) = 3 (x+3)(x-3) = 3^a x^2 - 9 = 3^a, x^2 = 3^a + 9 x = sqrt(3^a + 9)
