40. What does it mean if two quantities vary directly? What it means is that when two variables are related in this kind of way the ratio of their values always remain the same which the two variables are said to be in direct variation.

41. In your own words, explain how to solve a variation problem. When attempting to solve the best way to go about it would be to follow the 4 step process. The first step would be to write down the selected equation. All direct variation problems are solved by using the equation y=kx. The second step would be to use the information given in the problem to find the value of K which is called the constant of variation or the constant of proportionality. The next step in this process would be to rewrite the equation from step one substituting in the value of k found in step two. The final step would be to make use of the equation found in step three and the remaining information given in the problem to answer the question asked also when solving word problems it helps to include units in your final answer as well.

42. What does it mean if two quantities vary inversely? With two quantities with inverse variation as one quantity increases the other quantity decreases.

43. Explain what is meant by combined variation. Give an example with your explanation. Combined variation involves a combination of direct or joint variation and indirect variation. For example if y varies directly with x and inversely with z, and y = 25 when x = 10 and z = 2, find y when x = 18 and z = 9. | | First, write the general form for combined variation: Plug in the given values and solve for k:Cross multiply and solve for k:50 = 10kk = 5 Now plug our k value into the general equation: Now find y when x = 18 and z = 9 y = 10 | |

Psy 220 Week 2 Assignment

...University of Phoenix | Attachment Style and Relationships | PSY/220: Part 1 & Part 2 | | Lyndsey McMahon | 11/4/2012 | | Part 1 Sternberg's Theory of Love describes three components that make up different combinations or levels of love that can be shared between two people. The three components are intimacy, passion, and commitment. Intimacy refers to understanding and concern for the other person. This component deals with warm affection and getting to know each other on a deeper level. Passion refers to stronger feelings of emotion, excitement and physiological attraction. This component usually deals with sexual attraction and desire. Commitment refers to the conscious decision to stay in the relationship through the ups and downs. This component deals with putting in an effort to maintain the relationship and carries a sense of devotion for that relationship. By combining any of these components, you get different varieties of love. When combining intimacy and passion you get what Sternberg calls romantic love. For example, a summer love shows high levels of intimacy and passion, but no commitment to extend the relationship further. When combining intimacy and commitment in the model you gets what's called companionate love. An example of......

Hsm 220 Week 2

...HSM/220 External environmental factors are everything that is outside of the organization that helps it to operate effectively. The four external environmental factors are Economic, Sociological, Technological, and Political and Professional. Economic factors have to do with income and funding, and of course not forgetting the competitors. Sociological factors have to do with the target population. This determines what groups the organization will focus on. Target populations range from children, teenagers, and adults. Technological factors have to do with new technology and the need to stay up-to-date as well as keeping track of new ways to help people. Political and professional factors have to do with the laws and competitors, or people and business’s that they can work with. The six internal factors are made up of the organizations vision, mission, goals, culture, beliefs, and products. The organizations vision helps set goals and keeps the employees focused on the future. The mission statement outlines the organizations purpose and who they are. Goals are set up to motivate employees to strive for their best and the best of the organization. Culture has to do with how the vision of the organization will be carried out based on their values. Beliefs are the values of the organization, these values help to motivate. The products are the services which help to meet all of the organizations factors. The......

The National Council on Disability has made four main recommendations to meet the needs of this population more efficiently: 1. Increase and improve the capacity of the mental health care system to deliver evidence-based care. 2. Change policies to encourage more servicemembers and veterans to seek needed care. 3. Deliver evidence-based care in all settings. 4. Invest in research to close knowledge gaps and plan effectively. In addition to the suggested changes for the Veterans Association and Department of Defense, changes must also be made to the U.S. Healthcare system since this an issue that affects our society at large. Untreated mental illness is an issue that could potentially lead to an increase in homelessness, increase in domestic disturbances and violent outbursts, increase in likelihood of substance abuse which could all lead to an increase of inmates in our prison systems who, without proper mental health treatment, will remain in the system......

...Week 1 Writing Assignment 2 Karl von Busse EG 542 Economics and Change December 14, 2014 Rationing Bypassing the free market becomes necessary during war simply because the free market is not perfect and may not respond adequately to wartime material demands. During WW2 immediately following Pearl Harbor the government imposed a system of rationing on needed commodities such as steel, brass, rubber and gasoline. The reason was twofold. First, the demands of the war required massive amounts of of these items to supply the war effort. The military had to have a regular supply base. The second reason is related. In a free market, the sharp rise in demand would push prices much higher, hurting individuals and impairing the war effort (higher prices would mean money going into buying gasoline that could go to purchasing a wide range of other things just as important). The rationing system worked by restricting civilian demand, keeping supply high and in conjunction with price controls, kept prices more or less stable. In times of total war such as WW1 and WW2 government rationing works better than rationing by price. The government has a better idea of what the war effort needs than the civilian market. Furthermore rationing by price, under supply and demand rules, would cause the prices of the needed commodities to go up. The government would then have to pay the inflated price which could quickly make the war effort much too expensive. In the case of war accomplishing......

Cjs/220 Week 2 Assignment

...Week 2 Assignment: Law as a “Living Body” CJS/220 The U.S. Constitution provided the structure and framework for the American rule of law that was based from the structure of England. The U.S. Constitution, which was written and accepted in 1787, has influenced the American legal system giving the American people a structure to live by, law and order. Although all American laws are constitutional, when the Constitution was written in 1787 the American culture was very new and it only catered to the majority and nobody else that was brought to the United States. As time passed the comprehension of the Constitution was changed to integrate minorities like African Americans, women, Asian Americans and others to have the same rights as White Americans. The world has changed dramatically and the U.S. has made history since the creation of the U.S. Constitution having added to it in order for the land of the free actually be the land of the free. The term “laws on the books” refers to the actual written laws passed through legislation being by state or federal and recorded in the codified law books. “Law in action” refers to how the law is actually interpreted, carried out, and applied in the courts. As far as it being fair in the justice system, well it has its pros and cons. It’s not fair when a person is singled out by police because he looks different or out of place. It’s not fair when a person gets a ticket when going to speed of traffic. It is fair that we do...

The one disadvantage that will probably arrive in everyone’s mind first will be cost. In all actuality information systems can become costly, and they can cause budgets to have to be modified perhaps often. These budget changes could grow to be a bit challenging. These information systems may also not be as effective on a consistent basis. This problem will arise with seemingly any computer system. When these problems arise, human interaction may be called for to fix the problem, either by a member of the company or from the system’s manufacturer.
