Quote from WandereroftheDeep
Teachers usually want to hear that you think planning is most important, because it's in the planning stage that you determine the structure of your writing and your line of argument. Planning creates the skeleton, drafting the flesh, and revising adds the final touches, as it were.

so i chose the planning stage and did my speech on it because majority of the people i asked said planning is the most important. The professor said revising is more important though. Oh well i still got the credit because i backed up my point so no biggie. Thx for the help everyone smile

can someone reword this sentences?


"In practice, penalties never could be applied if we insisted that they cannot be inflicted on any guilty persons unless we are able to make sure that they are equally applied to all other guilty persons."


"If the death penalty were distributed equally and uncapriciously and with superhuman perfection to all the guilty"

you could try:
in practice, punishment cannot be inflicted upon a guilty party if we insist that each penalty affects every person guilty of the same crime equally.

ok, that's still a mouthful. let's try:
it is impossible to administer punishment upon a person, or even insist on a penalty, if we cannot prove that each person guilty of the same action will be given equal punishment.

ok, this isn't working. that's still too wordy. how much can i cut out and change here?

I'm not sure what type of rephrasing you need, but I'll give it a go~


If we were to insist (in making sure) that all applied penalties are equally inflicted on all guilty persons, we would never be able to apply penalties on any guilty persons.

or

If we were to assume that not all guilty persons are inflicted with equal penalties, we would not be able to apply any penalties on any guilty persons at all.


Oh, so it's rewording you need?
lolz I suck.


I'll try this, then:
Quote
3 steps in writing process: planning, drafting, and revising? which of these steps is the most important and why?


Planning.
Without it you can't draft or revise.

Quote from Sagaris
Yes, Mech is the answer to life, the universe, and everything.


Interesting, here is another sum for you:
1) Girls require Time and Money so:

Girls = Time x Money

2)we know that Time = Money so:

Girls = Money x Money = Money2

3)Money is the root of all evil (Money = sqrt-Evil) Therefore:

Girls = (sqrt-Evil)2

Girls = l Evil l

I am reviewing for my math exam and I came across these two word problems that I can't seem to figure out. Can anyone help me out?

1)A rectangular garden has a perimeter of 24 yards. Fencing across the length costs $3 per year and along the width $2 per yard. The total cost of the fencing is $62. Find the length and width of the rectangle.

I was thinking my two equations would be:
2x+2y=24 and 3x+2y=62
but I didn't get the correct answers with these equations.

2)You are choosing between two long-distance telephone plans. One plan has a month fee of $15 with a charge of $0.05 per minute for all long-distance calls. The other plan has a month fee of $10 with a charge of $0.75 per minute for all long-distance calls. For how many minutes of long-distance calls will the costs for the two plans be the same? What will be the cost for each plan?

For this one I was thinking something along the lines of
.05x+y=15 and .75+y=10
but again I didn't get the correct answers.

1). $62 is the total fencing, which is the length of 2x and 2y, so the equation is like this:
2x+2y=24
6x+4y=62, or 3x+2y=31 (as length and width is only half the rectangle)
You should eventually get x=7 and y=5.

2). 15+0.05x
10+0.75x
Set them equal to each other and solve for x
X=minutes. It's the same for both plan. The month fee is also within the cost, as you can think that in a month, plan A costs 15 + 0.05 * numbers of minutes talked, while in the same time interval, plan B costs 10 + 0.75 * numbers of minutes talked. You're trying to find numbers of minutes talked.

Oh gosh, you have no idea how silly I feel for forgetting to double up the 3 and 2 for the first one. lol I kinda want to go crawl in a hole now. laugh

And actually, I'm still not understanding the second one. The back of the book says 200 minutes and $25? none

I think you might have copied the problem wrong.
If the numbers are 15+0.05x=10+0.075x
then X=200 minutes, and the total amount comes to $25

Because you typed $0.05 per minute for plan A, and I guess is $0.5 per minute. In that case:

15 + 0.5x = 10 + 0.75x
5 = 0.25x
x = 20

So 20 minutes and $25 is the answer unless the figures are other ones XD.

Excuse my language but jesus christ, you are correct. You know what, I think I just might need glasses and a few more hours of sleep.
Really thank you so much! biggrin

my mistake was actually reading 0.075 as 0.75. xD oh gosh, I need to start reading A LOT more carefullly.

Ok, I need some help with Matlab code. (I know only a little about using Matlab and received this code from another person, so please don't get mad if the answer is obvious.)

I have a graph that I want to process, but it has a sort of jump between point numbers 1019-1020 and 2033-2034. So, first the code is supposed to "stitch" the graph so that it looks continuous. But it doesn't seem to be stitching the graph... Can someone tell me what's wrong with it and how to fix it so it will stitch?

Here is the link to the code and here are the links to what I am using for the input variables: 1, 2, 3, 4 (they should all be .m files)

Could you be more specific about what is going wrong for you?

I think I understand his problem, but don't have time to look at the code right now:

In a to-scale graph, sometimes you will have an enormous gap in your data, for example, if your data goes from x=100 to x = 105 but you appropriately label your coordinate axes with x beginning at 0, or if your y values normally range from 0 to 10 but you have an outlier at y = 1000.

In such cases, rather than make an enormous graph with hard-to-see data specks, the normal method is annotating the axes with two small arrows going into and out of the graph, that stands for "there is a large gap here that is not physically represented"

I know that matlab does have a function to cause a graph to manually generate such a visual tool, but I don't remember it offhand, and as I said, I have no time at the moment.

Edit: the normal way I see it rendered is like http://support.sas.com/kb/38/addl/fusion_38765_1_broken_axis. gif, but apparently some places render the axis break as a // like http://www.slidewrite.com/images/errybreak.gif
