#### can someone explain how to remember the difference between accept and except?

i can mix these up sometimes

Asked by Virginia from Tacoma, WA

Accept and except are opposites which could be remembered best by thinking of them like this: A for Accept: meaning Allow E for Except: meaning Exclude Examples of usage: I accept the \$100 dollars and will deposit it into my bank account. I will deposit the money I received except for the \$100 counterfeit bill! In the first sentence you "allow" the \$100 to be deposited in the bank. In the second sentence you "exclude" the \$100 from the bank deposit. I hope this is helpful to you!

#### Factor the Trinomial

x² - 5x - 14

Asked by Whitney from Wichita, KS

Hi Whitney!

As tutors, we are here to help guide you without doing the homework problems for you.  Have you attempted to factor this trinomial yet?  If you haven't and it is because you aren't sure of the FOIL method, I feel confident that you could get a mini-lesson on the website:  Khan Academy.  If you haven't used it before, it is a great resource for algebra!  I used it quite a bit when I'd forget how to perform a function or method in College Algebra.

After reviewing the FOIL method, please attempt to factor the trinomial and post your work here.  I will let you know if you've factored it correctly or not.  If not, I'll show you the proper way to factor the problem.  It's important that you show your work here as it would be academically dishonest for us to provide you with an answer without having seen your work.

I hope this is helpful to you!

Go to OWL@purdue.edu and search for thesis statement.  This should help you get started.

#### What are the differences between plant and animal cells?

is there also an easy way to remember the differences?

Asked by George from Vernon Hills, IL

Hi George,

There are a couple of ways you can learn the differences between plant and animal cells.  You can set up a comparison grid and list which of the exterior structures (eg. cell wall, cell membrane, flagella/cilia) and interior structures are applicable to each type of cell.  For instance, there is no cell wall in animal cells because they have an extracellular matrix instead.  Animal cells secrete a mix of glycoproteins (similar to the fibrous collagen protein found in our tendons and ligaments) which surrounds the animal cell forming a protective surface.  A complex mixture of molecules forms a web which is attached to the cytoskeleton of the animal cell.  Unlike the plant cell, this matrix is not a "cell wall" which is quite strong and thick in plants.  This is one of the primary differences in the two types of cells.  Plant cells have a cell wall and animal cells do not have cell walls.  Animal cells have an "extracellular matrix" or "ECM" (Raven, 82).

The other method you can use to learn the differences in the two types of cells is to sketch each cell and label all structures, interior and exterior.  I'll leave it to you to look up the list of structures for each cell type, otherwise, I'd be giving you the answers which is considered academic dishonesty.  The quickest and easiest way to find them is to check your textbook or just Google each cell type!  Hope this is helpful to you.  Happy Holidays!
