### There were 350 students competing at the regional spelling bee. during the first round 20% of the contestants were eliminated. how many contestants were still in the competition at the beginning of the second round?

You answer can be determined by the following equation.

350 starting students x 0.2 = 70 students eliminated

If you are ever dealing with a % of a number, multiply the percent (in decimal form) by the total number.

350 starting students - 70 students eliminated = 280 remaining students

A. rule by the patrician class without plebian representation B. a code of written law called the Twelve Tables C. personal wealth and power valued more than loyalty to Rome D. growth in size and power after the Punic Wars

The correct options are: A - D

It is known by the name of the Punic wars to the three armed conflicts that faced between years 264 a. C. and 146 a. C. to the two main powers of the western Mediterranean of the time: Rome and Carthage. At the outbreak of the conflict greatly influenced the annexation by Rome of Magna Grecia, in the south of the Italian peninsula, but the main cause of the conflict between the two was the conflict of interests between the colonies of Carthage and the expansion of the Republic of Rome.

In Ancient Rome, the social order of the patricians was composed of the descendants of the thirty primitive curias. The name comes from pater (father), in reference to the founders, that is, to the first parents of Rome. He is the senator par excellence and is part of the primitive nobility of Rome, called nobility of blood and ilustrii or nobilitas patritii, and cultural substrate of all Europe. Around the emperor and patriarchal senators will develop all the Roman society, culture and civilization that will culminate in the Roman Empire.
