one way is to remove teemptations such as TV, etc. you can also get bored whilst reading so take short breaks in between which helps!

1. c=8.5p+125 a) 8.5(50) + 125 = c b) 8.5(100) + 125 = c c) 8.5(150) + 125 = c d) 8.5(200) + 125 = c e) 8.5(250) + 125 = c 2) p1 = 20yd, p2 = 10yd, p3 = 30yd. Third piece, 30yards. 4) Divide to find the "unit time" or average time Race 1: 100/10 = 10m/s Race 2: 240/20 = 20m/s Race 3: 800/125 = 6.4m/s Race 4: 5000/800 = 6.25m/s Race 4 had the fastest average speed. Glad to help =) Race 4
2) I will answer this with variables. X=first piece of string Y=second piece of string Z=third piece of string The known information: X+Y+Z=60 X=2Y --> it says "twice the length of second piece", so multiply by 2 Z=3Y --> same concept as above Use substitution in the first equation. So... you can replace X and Z with the equations for them: 2Y+Y+3Y=60 --> at this stage just solve for Y, if you know how... Add common variables: 6Y=60 Divide both sides by 6 to isolate Y: Y=10 yards. Now solve for the two other variables using substitution once again: X=2Y X=2(10) X=20 yards Z=3Y Z=3(10) Z=30 yards... So the third piece of string is the longest: 30 yards. I'm glad I could help! I'm in 6th Grade and in Algebra 1. I understand if you don't trust my answer since my small age, but I'm pretty sure I did it correctly. Don't base your answers for math off of the internet though: ask your teacher or other students in your class for help.

Well,if you haven't tried it yet, a calender really helps. It reminds you what and when you need to do things and it kinda mocks you if you don't do it. If the Mocking thing works then sticky notes help also! Using your email you can set reminders. If you have a cell phone it reminds you also. It kind of sounds like your a procrastinator. Something that will really help you get motivated if you are is to spread out your work into days if you have that much time. I hope i helped!

Try pain. If you think reading is a pain, try REAL PAIN. When you get home, instead of doing something you enjoy to avoid work, try pain. Hit yourself with a blunt object. Don't stop until you start reading. Take off your shoes. Stand on broken glass. Don't get off until you start reading. Sit on a sharp stick. No pants. Then stand up & read. Which do you prefer? Let your father hit you until you start to read. (He may encourage you not to read, but that's another issue...) Stand in an open window. Never mind. That would make YOU a pane... (OK, I'm kidding. But I hope you get the point.)

I think you need to set up a routine for doing homework with your kid. For example, after coming home from school, let your kid have snack and let her talk about her school day. Then, help her take a bath and relax a little bit. When doing homework with your kid, you need to find a quiet area without any distraction like TV or computer. If she can complete her homework within certain amount of time ( let's say in one hour), give her a sticker on a chart. When she has 5 stickers, you can trade them with a small prize that she really likes. Also, giving her compliments and encouragement is needed. Otherwise, she may not have the habit of doing homework. That may affect her academically in the future.
