Meter is the rhythm established by a poem, and it is usually dependent not only on the number of syllables in a line but also on the way those syllables are accented.

why is math so hard ?
Weegy: Math is hard because you are learning a lot of things at once. Math has its on language, new words and context and arrangement. Math introduces us formally to logic. The investigation and classification of the structure of statements and arguments. [ It teaches us how to think and reason. For some of us this is the first time and it is hard. Math often is a non-tangible as it takes place entirely in the mind. and not out where we can put our hands on it. Math trains the mind. Just as we learned to walk it takes a long time and we have to go through beginning steps such as crawling and there are a lot of falls. If you understand now what you studied last year you are probably doing ok. Each piece of math is built upon what has gone before. Its hard because we are not taught to think or use logic normally. ] (More)
