contrast Brian Kennedy’s definition of visual literacy.

?Visual literacy is the ability to construct meaning from images,? says Brian Kennedy. It?s a form of critical thinking and a universal language that, he argues, is more necessary than ever in today?s digital age. [ [
Visual literacy is the reading and writing of visual texts.
Visual literacy is knowing which text to use
Think of all the different ways we can communicate: by writing,

speaking, drawing, or gesture; by using words, numbers, images, symbols, or colors. Each one is a different tool in the literacy toolbox.
If we use only one set of tools (words, sentences, paragraphs) our literacy is limited to those things best expressed with those tools.

explain william ryan's opinion on visual literacy **Weegy:** Missy Ryan
Yes and no. Strictly speaking, yes, if you can gain muscle without any accompanying fat gain, you will reduce your body fat percentage. [ [ However, the reality is that when you work the math, the impact of gaining muscle mass is minuscule approaching irrelevant, especially compared to the impact of actually losing fat through diet/activity.
To illustrate this, let?s consider an average lifter who is 170 pounds with 15% body fat. As I showed in Body Composition Calculations, we can determine the total amount of body fat (in pounds) that this person is carrying by multiplying their weight by 15% (or 0.15). So our lifter has
170 pounds * 0.15 = 25 pounds of body fat and 145 pounds of lean body mass. We don?t actually need the lean body mass number for any of the calculations I?m going to do.
Let?s look at how much of an impact gaining pure muscle mass has in terms of changing body fat percentage. For these calculations, I?ll assume that the lifter is gaining 100% muscle and no fat; please note that this is not usually a good assumption. But it makes the math easier.
The table below demonstrates how various increases in muscle mass affect body fat percentage; note that his fat mass will stay static at 25 pounds throughout the calculations. So all I?m doing is dividing total fat mass (25 pounds) by the new body weight after adding the muscle that was gained. For the unadulterated hell of it, in addition to more reasonable numbers, I?ve done the calculation assuming this lifter can gain a whopping 40 pounds of true muscle mass with zero fat gain.
Impact of Muscle Gain on Body Fat Percentage
Muscle Gain Fat Mass Total Weight Body Fat Percentage
5 pounds 25 pounds 175 pounds 14.2%
10 pounds 25 pounds 180 pounds 13.8%
15 pounds 25 pounds 185 pounds 13.5%
20 pounds 25 pounds 190 pounds 13.1%
40 pounds 25 pounds 210 pounds 11.9%
