The Richter magnitude of an earthquake is determined from the _____.

The Richter magnitude of an earthquake is determined from the measurement of the amplitude of the largest seismic waves (amplitude of the surface waves)

Further explanation

The SAT is a standardized test that widely used for college admissions in the United States

The Richter magnitude scale is the number scale used to tell the power or magnitude of earthquakes. Charles Richter developed the Richter Scale in 1935.

Earthquake is any ground sudden shaking caused by the passage of seismic waves through Earth's rocks.

The Richter magnitude of an earthquake is determined from the measurement of the amplitude of the largest seismic waves (amplitude of the surface waves).

Seismic waves, like all waves, transfer energy from one place to another without moving material. Seismic waves have two types such as compressional, longitudinal waves or shear, transverse waves. The amplitude of the largest seismic wave of a magnitude 5 quake is 10 times that of a magnitude 4 quake and 100 times that of a magnitude 3 quake.

As a plant grows, its mass increases. The matter that makes up this new mass comes mostly from air and water that the plant changes into organic compounds such as cellulose using the energy from sunlight. As an animal grows, its mass increases. The matter that makes up this new mass comes mostly from A. air and water that the animal changes into organic compounds using the energy from sunlight. B. organic compounds that the animal breaks down into water and carbon dioxide. C. substances that the animal has eaten but cannot digest. D. food that the animal has eaten and changed into other organic compounds.

To be honest I would most likely say D.just like humans were going to need food for growth...The food that animals  eat can be transformed into usable energy for cells or can be used to build new cells, which form tissues like skin and muscle. ... The process of growth involves eating food, breaking down food through digestion, absorbing nutrients from food, and building tissue.hope this helps

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/11/2019 - 09:42 PM

The benefit of taking a duel enrollment course instead of an ap course is: a. you can save on college tuition b. you can take the course at your high school c. dual enrollment courses are usually easier d. you are guaranteed college credit if you pass the class

D.
If you are also asking this from a personal standpoint, my advice is that the dual enrollment courses are much easier. However, this may not be the best option depending on which college it is based through (Dual credit is NOT universal, and there are some colleges, especially the ones that are harder to get into, that will not accept transfer credit from many colleges.) My advice would be, if you don't know where you are going to college yet, to take the AP and study a lot for that test. Or, if you know where you are going, to take advantage of CLEP tests, which are easier and strictly pass/fail subject tests. Most colleges would have the AP/Transfer Credit/CLEP requirements on their websites if you do a little digging.

How does scoring high on the SAT help someone receive a full academic scholarship to college?

Colleges often consider accepting students based on their test scores, as well as certain additional traits. Not all students accepted to college have high SAT scores, however, higher scores increase chances of an academic scholarship. If you are looking for a full academic scholarship, high SAT scores will be beneficial due to the fact that most colleges select students mostly based on test scores. However, you will need additional high grades and test scores in order to be considered for a full scholarship.

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/11/2019 - 09:47 AM

In the xy-plane, the point (p, r) lies on the line with equation y = x + b, where b is a constant. the point with coordinates (2p, 5r) lies on the line with equation y = 2x + b. if p does not equal 0, what is the value of r/p? A). 2/5 B). 3/4 C). 4/3 D). 5/2

Each point should satisfy the equation of the line it belongs to.
This means that:
for the equation of the first line (y=x+b), the point (p,r) satisfies this equation, thus: r = p + b ....................> equation I
for the equation of the second line (y=2x+b), the point (2p,5r) satisfies this equation, thus: 5r = 4p + b ...................> equation II
Subtract equation I from equation II to eliminate the constant b:
5r-r = 4p+b-p-b
4r = 3p
Thus, r/p = 3/4

Graduated Licensing  is aimed specifically to help teenagers gaining needed experience in driving before actually taking the test to obtain the driving license.  To obtain this licensing, the teenagers need to pass three steps:

1. Supervised learning period.

In which at least one person who already had a drivers license had to present during the driving.

2. Intermediate license.

No longer need supervision, but the time when teenage drivers could use the car is extremely limited

3. Intermediate license.

no longer need supervision and limited curfew.

In \bigtriangleup PNO △ P N O , PM is the median of side NO . What is the measure of side NM ?

In geometry, the median of the triangle is a line segment that connects between the vertex in the triangle and the midpoint of the side opposite to this vertex.
So, the median is mainly the bisector of a side.
Based on this, since PM is the median of the side NO, then M is the midpoint of NO and the measure of the side MN is half that of NO

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/11/2019 - 01:18 AM

A group of 202 people went on an overnight camping trip, taking 60 tents with them. Some of the tents held 2 people each, and the rest held 4 people each. Assuming all the tents were filled to capacity and every person got to sleep in a tent, exactly how many of the tents were 2-person tents?

Imagine x was the number that could held 4 people then 60-x would be the number that could held 2 people so our answer would be calculated in this way:

4*x + (60-x)*2 = 202
4x + 120 - 2x = 202
4x - 2x = 202 - 120
2x = 82
x = 82/2 = 41

As we said 60 - x could held 2 people, so the answer is 60-41=19
