# 3 Reasons why

3 Reasons why I would not want to be stuck on this island:

This past month I have been reading the Lord of the Flies written by William Golding. I have came to the conclusion that being on the island would be a complete disaster and WOULD NOT BE FUN. Here’s why.

1. Everyone Would Smell

Imagine being on an island with multiple teenage boys. Not only are they teenage boys, they also haven’t showered for months. Months of sweating, eating, hunting, and playing the dirt, without showering. Sounds fun to me…Not. My mom won’t even allow me to eat dinner after practice until I shower.

2.  It would be a full time babysitting job!

The island not only has a bunch of stinky boys, it is also filled with little kids know as litluns. Could you babysit little kids everyday at the age of 12? I couldn’t. You would have to feed them, watch them, and put them to sleep, all while trying to take care of yourself and survive. If you lose Major props to Ralph for trying to taking care of all the little things while also trying to maintain order, as a kid!

3. There would no girls

Not only would being with a bunch teenage boys suck, there would also be no girls. Can you imagine trying to stay civilized while having no women to control you? I can’t. Not only would the island be less fun, there would also be no chance to repopulate and start civilization on the island. Which means life on the island would be a one way road to death.

# Trigonometry

In this section I learned about trigonometry and this included SOH CAH TOA

SOH  CAH TOA helped me when it came to finding each side of a right triangle

for example if the triangle gives you the hypotenuse and opposite then u should use the sin this is why it is SOH

And you use cos when u have the Adjacent and  hypotenuse

# Measurements 2nd half

This week I learned the difference between the metric and imperial systems and how to convert them;

• the imperial system is the american system which includes miles, feet, inches, and yards
• The metric system which most of the world uses, includes kilometers, meters, and cm

I also learned how to find the surface area and volume of prisms and cylinders;

Volume of prism= the area of the base of prism x height

Surface area of prism= add the areas of all the surfaces together

area of base= 2(pi)r

# Exponents

During our unit on exponents i have learned how to simplify and solve equations that included exponents. This included when multiplying two or more numbers with the same base you can add the exponents.

For example:  $x^4$ +$x^4$ = $x^8$
