This is about the Igbo Women's War of Nigeria in 1929.
Women enjoyed higher status before colonization, and rebelled after the British began to dehumanize them.

Hi Nyia;
Ivan and Jeff buy a package of 8 pens for $4.00. Ivan wants 5 of the pens and jeff wants 3. how much should each student pay?
Ivan should pay ___$2.50___________ and Jeff should pay _____$1.50________.
cost-per-pen is...
($4.00)/(8 pens)
$0.50/pen

Hi Daisy;
I agree, the answer is B.

Hi Jessica;
22%=0.22
x=number
0.22x=58.52
Divide both sides by 0.22
(0.22x)/0.22=58.52/0.22
x=266
Let's check our work...
266(0.22)=58.52

Hi Faye;
25%=0.25
$620+[($620)(0.25)]
1.25($620)=$775

Hi Makayla;
area=pi(r2)
This is actually an equation, not expression. An expression does not have the = sign.
area=pi(5p-3m)2
We can expand the parenthetical equation.
Let's FOIL (5p-3m)(5p-3m)
FIRST...(5p)(5p)=25p2
OUTER...(5p)(-3m)=-15pm
INNER...(-3m)(5p)=-15pm

Hi Faye;
actual cost=x
20%=0.20
price mark-up=0.20x
selling price=$4,740
$4,740=x+0.20x
$4,740=1.20x
Divide both sides by 1.20...
($4,740)/(1.2)=x
$3,950=x
Let's check our work...
$3,950+(20% of $3,950)=$4,740
$3,950&...

Hi Carmalita;
f(x) = -7x2 + 3x + 1
There are two techniques to calculate the x-coordinate of the vertex...
x=-b/2a
x=-3/[(2)(-7)]
x=-3/-14
x=3/14
or
Take the first derivative of the equation and set to zero. We are setting to zero...

Hi Daisy;
Let's look at the context of answer A...
The green crest of the hill on which I sit;
And it is summer, glorious, deep-toned summer,
The very crown of nature's changing year

Hi Xin;
given f(x)=2x-5, construct a function g such that g(f(x))=x
g(x)=function such that when we replace x with 2x-5, the result is x.
We would begin with...
g(x)=(1/2)(.......)
(1/2)(2)=1, the coefficient of x.
We now have...
g(x)=(1/2)(x)
g(f(x))=(1/2)(2x-5)=x-2...

Hi Xin;
question 1: factor 6x^2-5x+10
I cannot factor this.
I can factor this...
6x2+4x-10
(3x+5)(2x-2)
or
(6x+10)(x-1)
question 2: factor kax-kay+shx+shy
I think this is 2(shx)
question 3: factor x^2+16
I cannot factor...

Hi Karen;
FIRST CAR...70 miles/hour....distance x
SECOND CAR....x miles/hour...distance (x-50)
After 2.5 hours, the FIRST CAR is...
distance=(velocity)(time)
s=vt
distance=(70 miles/hour)(2.5 hours)
The unit of hours is in the denominator and numerator. It...

Hi Karen;
length....x
width...(1/2)x-1
perimeter=64
perimeter=2(length+width)
64=2[x+(1/2)x-1]
64=2[(3/2)x-1]
64=3x-2
Add 2 to both sides...
64+2=3x-2+2
66=3x
Divide both sides by 3...
66/3=(3x)/3
22=x

Hi Sarah;
S=(A-RT)/(1-R)
This can also be written as...
S/1=(A-RT)/(1-R)
Cross-multiply...
S(1-R)=(1)(A-RT)
S(1-R)=A-RT
S-SR=A-RT
Add RT to both sides...
S-SR+RT=A-RT+RT
S-SR+RT=A

Hi Bella;
The most important issue here is the duration of Meade's employment; two years. There must have been a payment history. This may or may not be consistent with the oral agreement. If it is consistent, the oral contract is fully enforceable...

Hi Alex;
width...x
length...7x+3
perimeter=2(length+width)
54=2(x+7x+3)
54=2(8x+3)
54=16x+6
Subtract 6 from both sides...
54-6=16x+6-6
48=16x
Divide both sides by 16...
48/16=(16x)/16

Hi Sandy;
(70 mm)/(99 feet)=(4 mm)/x
Let's note that the unit of mm is in the numerators of both sides. It cancels...
(70 mm)/(99 feet)=(4
mm)/x
70/(99 feet)=4/x
The only unit remaining is feet. This is what we want...
Cross-multiply...
