### Directions: In the chart below describe the problems the author “A Modest Proposal” associates with each group listed. Next, explain the author’s solution to the problem and in the final column, describe the supposed “benefits” which will result from the implementation of this “modest proposal”. Babies Problem: Solution: Benefits: Children Ages 1 - 12 Problem: Solution: Benefits: Elderly, Maimed, or Ill Problem: Solution: Benefits: Write a paragraph in which you describe the ACTUAL solution which Swift wants to be implemented.

Answer: In “A Modest Proposal” the author argues about his proposal (eating babies) which according to him could be a great solution to Ireland’s devastating food shortage, stimulate the economy, and also curtail overpopulation. He goes on by saying that the flesh of newborns would provide the tenderest meat and it would also change the moral of parents and children.

I hope it helps, Regards.

QUESTION POSTED AT 17/02/2020 - 12:16 PM

### Sum of two consecutive even intergars divided by 4 is189.5

My suggestion to you is to "solve" for the sum of your two numbers (a+b). This will help a lot!

To solve for our sum (a+b) multiply both sides by 4. You get the following equation after you multiply 189.5 by 4 and cancel out the 4/4 on the left:

a+b = 758

Now our job is pretty simple from here. Simple divide 758 by 2.

= 379

If you remember from basic math division is the same as saying what "x" amount of numbers added together equal my number. Where "x" is the number you divide by. So what we have is two numbers which add to equal our number. We need the number to be two consecutive even numbers. Consecutive meaning back to back.

We currently are looking at this equation:

379 + 379 = 758

While it is correct, we need to change it a bit. Think about how we can make the numbers consecutive even numbers without changing what they add up to. Add and Subtract 1 from the problem.

379 + 1 + 379 - 1 = 758

378 + 380 = 758

So, our two numbers are 378 and 380. If you want you can check it with our original equation.

= 189.5

Turns out that the statement is true, so these two numbers work!

**Once again the answers are:**

**378, and 380**

### The difference between a number and 21 1/2 is no more than 14 1/4

**Answer: **Hello!

ni this problem i consider that the notation 21 1/2 is equivalent to 21 + 1/2 = 21.5

our phrase is:

**"The difference between a number and 21 1/2 is no more than 14 1/4"**

we can break it into two parts to make it easier.

**"The difference between a number and 21 1/2"**

this is a subtraction, here you are subtracting 21 1/2 to a number, let's call this number x, then we can write this as:

x - 21 + 1/2

or x - 21.5

the second part says: **"is no more than 14 1/4"**

then the thing that we got before, is less or equal than 14 1/4 (or 14.25), this is

x - 21.5 ≤ 14.25

now you can add the same number in both sides of the inequality and it remains the same, then you can add 21.5 to both sides and:

x - 21.5 + 21.5 ≤ 14.25 + 21.5

x ≤ 35.75

### Solve. 3(x + 1) - 2x = -6

**The answer would be x = 9.**

3x + 3 - 2x = -6 (Expand)

x + 3 = -6 (Simplify 3x + 3 - 2x to x + 3)

x = -6 - 3 (Subtract 3 from both sides)

x = -9 ( Simplify -6 - 3 to -9)

3x + 3 - 2x = -6 (Expand)

x + 3 = -6 (Simplify 3x + 3 - 2x to x + 3)

x = -6 - 3 (Subtract 3 from both sides)

x = -9 ( Simplify -6 - 3 to -9)
