Question and answer
Describe how the binary number system uses only 1s and 0s to represent numbers.
The binary numeral system (base 2 numerals) represents numeric values using two symbols, typically 0 and 1. More specifically, the usual binary numeral system is a positional notation with a radix of 2. [ Owing to its straightforward implementation in electronic circuitry, the binary system is used internally by virtually all modern computers. A binary number can be represented by any sequence
of bits (binary digits), which in turn may be represented by any mechanism capable of being in two mutually exclusive states. The following sequences of symbols could all be interpreted as the same binary numeric value: 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 | - | - - | | - | - x o x o o x x o x o y n y n n y y n y n The numeric value represented in each case is dependent upon the value assigned to each symbol. In a computer, the numeric values may be represented by two different voltages; on a magnetic disk, magnetic polarities may be used. ]

There are two basic organizational methods for a compare-and-contrast essay. Do you think one is a stronger method, or are they situational? Why?
Weegy: A Comparison or Contrast essay is an essay in which you either compare something or contrast something. A comparison essay is an essay in which you emphasize the similarities, and a contrast essay is an essay in which you emphasize the differences. [ [ [ We use comparison and contrast thinking when deciding which university to attend, which car to buy, or whether to drive a car or take a bus or an airplane to a vacation site. In this section, two classic organizational patterns of a comparison or contrast essay will be discussed. One is called block arrangement of ideas; the other is called point-by-point or alternating arrangement of ideas. Suppose you are interested in showing the differences between vacationing in the mountains and vacationing at the beach. You will then write a contrast composition. One way to arrange your material is to use the block arrangement which is to write about vacationing in the mountains in one paragraph and vacationing at the beach in the next. If you mention a particular point in the mountains paragraph, you must mention the same point in the beach paragraph, and in the same order. Study the following outline, which shows this kind of organization. The introductory paragraph is followed by the mountains paragraph, the beach paragraph, then the conclusion; the fully developed essay is just four paragraphs. ] (More)

What are some of the benefits of regular physical activity? Why is physical activity important and how might it improve health and wellness?
Weegy: Regular physical activity enhances the quality of life for people of all ages. [ Being physically active every day can significantly reduce your risk of injuries, many chronic diseases and premature death as well as improve mental function and emotional well-being, and increase energy. The nation is currently experiencing an inactivity or sedentary epidemic. Causes include: More use of cars and less time getting around under our own power. Less active jobs, more hours working. More time in front of screens - TV, computer, video games, etc. Less time for outdoor play and recreation Recreation that relies upon motor vehicles (boats, ATV's, snowmobiles, etc.) This contributes to overweight and obesity concerns and many other health issues.

However, there are important additional benefits to be gained from various types of exercise and the best strategy is to do both. ........... ] User: In what situations are compare-and-contrast essays effective?

Review the steps in the prewriting phase of essay writing. How important do you think prewriting is to the success of an essay? Can you skip the prewriting phase? Why or why not?
Weegy: No you can't if you want to write a quality essay. Pre-writing helps because it enables you to write a fluent essay that goes naturally from beginning to end. [ [ [ A bad essay jumps forwards and backwards as the writer thinks of new things to say but doesn't put them together in any order. ] The prewriting phase is very essential because it helps you generate and organize thoughts. In this case, it shouldn't be skipped. ] (More)

In what situations are compare-and-contrast essays effective? When would that style be ineffective? What is the difference? Explain.
Weegy: The compare and contrast essay is used to set up the process essay. There are two types of process essays: the instructional essay and the informative essay. [ [ The instructional essay is used to tell how to do something, while the informative essay is used to show how something happens or how to become something. A compare and contrast essay can be describe either as a whole or in parts. As a whole, the compare and contrast essay describes two or more things throughout the whole composition. On the other hand, in parts, the compare and contrast essay describes one topic in one paragraph, and then a separate topic in a different paragraph. ] User: Biases are not always negative; they can help you construct a strong argument. How can a bias negatively affect your essay? What can you do to prevent this? Weegy: When writing an essay there are usually two major opinions the reader will decide to side with. [ It lies in the writer's hand to provide all necessary information, being as precise and objective as possible. Once emotional effect to either of the opinions might cloud the writer's judgement, thus presenting the arguments in a rather subjective than objective way, making it harder for the reader to make up his mind on his own, without being already biased by the writer. In conclusion, to write an essay without letting bias affect your style, try staying as neutral as possible. A tip that sometimes helps is to pretend to be someone else, maybe someone with a different opinion or no opinion at all. Happy writing. ] User: Identify a serious error you find challenging to overcome in your own writing. What method will you use to avoid this error? Would you recommend the method to others? Why or why not? (More)
