A topic sentence helps support the main idea of a paragraph.
True
False

A topic sentence helps support the main idea of a paragraph. It is true.
A writer will state his/her main idea explicitly somewhere in the paragraph. That main idea may be stated at the beginning of the paragraph, in the middle, or at the end. [ The sentence in which the main idea is stated is the topic sentence of that paragraph.
The topic sentence announces the general theme ( or portion of

the theme) to be dealt with in the paragraph. Although the topic sentence may appear anywhere in the paragraph, it is usually first - and for a very good reason. This sentence provides the focus for the writer while writing and for the reader while reading. When you find the topic sentence, be sure to underline it so that it will stand out not only now, but also later when you review.

Next you get 2x+1=37
then solve the equation by 37-1=36
then divide by 2 which gives you 18
so x=18
now finally you get x+1 as 19
Here are the answers

Two consecutive integers have a sum of 37, the numbers are 18, 19.

If the smaller number is n , another number is n +

n + n + 1 = 37

2n + 1 = 37

2n = 36

n = 18

n + 1

= 18 + 1

= 19

If the smaller number is n , another number is n +

n + n + 1 = 37

2n + 1 = 37

2n = 36

n = 18

n + 1

= 18 + 1

= 19

If x varies directly as y, and x = 4 when y = 14, find y when x = 9. **Weegy:**
1) y = (14/21) * 45 = 30
2) y = (4 * 10)/20 = 2
3) y = (3 * 9)/27 = 1
4) commision = 4500*225000/150000 = 6750
5) Money made = 225 * 12000/4500 = 600
