Shmoop Answers:

 

1. Which of the following is the correct order to graph the numbers -3, -8, -2, 2, -9 on a horizontal number line from left to right?  6th Grade Math Semester A 

 
Answer: D) 9, -8, -3, -2, 2 . On a horizontal number line, positive numbers are graphed to the right of zero and negative numbers are graphed to the left of zero. So the most negative number should be first and the most positive number should be last.
 

 


 

2. If you're a human being (which we assume you are), what body system do you have that should work without your having to think about it? 8th Health 

D) Respiratory.

 

Answer: B) All of these. Yup, all of these work without your thinking about them and they also work in unison, without your having to give them a second though

 


 

3. How do societal expectations affect a person's gender? AP® Psychology—Semester B

E) Society determines gender identity (an individual's maleness or femaleness).

Answer: C) Society defines gender roles. While different societies have different ideas about how men and women should act, they pretty much all weigh in on the question somehow.

Producing beyond our ________ will most likely lead to our costs increasing quite dramatically.

 

 
Answer: A) Production possibility frontier. We can get beyond the production possibility frontier, but our costs go up—probably dramatically. It’s also most likely unsustainable, at least in the long run. People can work overtime for a while, machines can run hot for a while...but sooner or later the piper comes calling. Translation: we’ll have to pay for it at some point. 
 
Production possibility curves can be used to show how much a country can produce. If a country wants to produce more, the law of increasing costs says it will be more expensive than producing inside or on the production possibility frontier.

News Flash: Students enjoy humor.

Shmoopers tend to stick around once they give us a try. We have a knack for getting them results and making sure they don't fall asleep in the process. We love it when students laugh with (or at) us as, long as they're engaged and learning. It helps motivate them on their rigorous and effective test preparation journey.

Shmoop’s goal is to make students want to learn. We give students the tools to succeed and, along with amazing teachers and administrators, we makestudents believe they can ace any test they take. Using Shmoop in the classroom or at home is a commitmentto saying that learning is exciting, achievable, and doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings.*

It motivated me more than other test prep would. Not only is the material humorous, but Shmoop teaches in a way that is easy to understand and relate to.
