A bookstore has 50% more fantasy books than biographies. What is the ratio of fantasy books to biographies?
If there are 50% more fantasy books than biographies, then we can create false numbers and say that if there are 100 biographies, there will be 150 fantasy books. The ratio of fantasy books to biographies, then, is 150: 100. dividing by 50, the ratio simplifies to 3:2

two buildings in downtown Chicago stand across the river from each other. The first buildings height is 1,700ft and it casts a shadow that is 525ft long. If the second building's height is 1,450 feet, how long will its shadow be at the same time of the day (round to the nearest foot0?
If the height of the first building is 1,700ft while its shadow is 525ft, and the second building's height is 1,450ft tall, it sets up this proportion: 1,700/525=1,450/x. By cross multiplying and solving for x we find: 1,700x=761,250; x=448ft long,

For the beginner, Bridge can be complicated, but with time, effort, and a good teacher, even the novice can become proficient.
Composed of two main parts, bidding and playing, Bridge requires the player's undivided attention. The dealer deals the entire deck of playing cards evenly between the for players, with each person receiving thirteen cards.

A trick is one card played by each player for a total of four. After the lead player lays down his/her card, the other players follow suit, if possible. The highest card within the four "same suit" cards played wins the trick and picks up all four cards. if a player cannot follow suit, he/she plays any card, but to make the game more interesting and challenging, one suit is named a trump suit which means that if a player plays a card from the trump suit, it always wins the trick.

The Water Cycle
Water is needed to sustain practically all life functions on planet Earth. A single drop of this compound is composed of an oxygen atom that shares its electrons with each of the two hydrogen atoms.
The cycle starts when precipitation, such as rain, snow, sleet, or hail, descends from the sky onto the ground. Water that is not absorbed immediately from the precipitation is known as runoff.
The runoff flows across the land and collects in groundwater reservoirs, rivers, streams, and oceans.
Evaporation takes place when liquid water changes into water vapor, which is a gas. Water vapor returns to the air from surface water and plants.
Ultimately, condensation happens when this water vapor cools and changes back into droplets of liquid. In fact, the puffy, cotton clouds that we observe are formed by condensation. When the clouds become heavily laden with liquid droplets, precipitation ensues.

What effect does your voice have on others? Does it persuade or irritate, attract or repel? One of the worst qualities is harshness. If you ever get the feeling that people are uncomfortable when
you speak, it may be that your harsh tones are jarring their eardrums. Your voice will sound unpleasant if it is shrill, grating, hard, piercing, brassy, to loud, or too nasal. Harsh voice qualities usually come from too much tension in the throat and jaw. Tension tightens muscles
and blocks the relaxed voice tones essential to a pleasing impression. Because tension occurs in higher pitched voices, women tend to have shriller voices than men, which usually makes them less desirable public speakers, newscasters, or political candidates.

Golden Gate Bridge
Linking San Francisco to Marin County in California, the Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most
famous bridges in the world. The bridge crosses over a narrow strait which connects the Pacific
Ocean to San Francisco Bay. Prior to the bridge, people traveled by ferry boat across the strait.
Although most people thought a bridge was necessary to expedite travel, some residents of the
bay area felt the risk of building the bridge was too great. Joseph Strauss believed that nothing
was impossible, and dreams would never come to fruition if risks weren't taken. So, he decided
to gather the best and brightest builders, architects, and workers to embark on the challenge of
building a bridge across the Golden Gate Strait.
With safety nets in place, the construction began in 1937. Building the anchorages first, the builders then move on to the towers on each end, and then to the three-foot thick cables to
support the suspension bridge. Lastly, workers labored to complete the roadway which became the most dangerous and treacherous part of the entire task. The builders had to keep the bridge balance, so it wouldn't fall into the bay.
Today, over sixty-five years later, the bridge remains a lifeline for the people of the San Francisco Bay Area.
