Math and Arithmetic

Math is the study of abstractions. Math allows us to isolate one or a few features such as the number, shape or direction of some kind of object. Then we can study what can be learned about the behavior of those features while ignoring everything else about the object.

How can you make yourself smaller if you are 14 and 5' 9'' and you want to be 5' 5''?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The only thing that can be done is to surgically remove four inches from each one of your legs. You don't want to do that. Being 5'9" isn't so bad.

AnswerMy daughter could have written the above answer.

She was 5'9 at 14 and hasn't grown much more. she is now 18 and 5'10.

When she was 14 she was the tallest in her class. Now some of the girls and most of the boys have caught her up.

She loves being tall. Her main problem is finding trousers to fit her 36" legs. I wish I had such a problem.

^^ Why on earth would you want to be smaller when you are 5'9"?! I understand that being so tall might get you unwanted attention or bullying, but I'm 5'2" and would literally kill to to be a couple of inches taller!! I wouldn't be so drastic if i were you. Being tall can really help you out sometimes you know. Spot a tastey looking cheesecake on that top shelf? Can't reach it if yer 5'2"! Think about THAT!! lol. Rant over.

Lets just say nobody knows how the brain works deep deep down. But there are binary things in the brain, like a neuron will either output a 1 (it fires) or a zero (it does nothing) depending on the number of electrical pulses sent to the neuron

When a house is left to more than one heir who controls whether it is sold?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I believe there is usually a trustee(s) that determine things like that. Otherwise, a mutual decision has to be made which can often times ruin families especially if the house has been in one family for many years and one person does not want it sold for sentimental reasons. When property is left to several heirs, they all become joint owners of that property. No one person has the right to decide on the disposition of the land simply because he may own a larger percentage of the property than some others. Nor does majority of owners rule. If some want to sell and some do not, usually the ones who do not want to sell just buy out the others interests on an agreed upon price. If they cant agree on a price, then any owner may file a lawsuit called an action in partition. Although it is called a partition action, the property is never physically divided unless the owners agree. Usually the court will order that the property be sold at public bidding. The owners that do not want to sell will have to beat whatever price the bidding goes to or the high bidder gets to buy the property and the owners get their percentages. (Minus all of their legal fees and court costs, of course.)

Only your your spoouse can answer this, reguardless of how long you are married, shoulld women tolerate this. There is no excuse for ANY FORM OF PHYSICAL, VERBAL ,OR OTHER ABUSE. As a man you should know that, your wife deserves your respect at all times. Mabye your wife is asking you to get help, sort out your own problems and be the man you were 27years ago.Having experieenced domestic violence myself' leaving a marriage, may I wish you luck. If necessary go for counselling,apologise and mean it GOOD LUCK I would say, that would be an accurate description, yes. Whatever the circumstances are that lead up to the "pushing", there is obviously something seriously wrong, if one can push the other. Get some help, now. No one deserves to be physically intimdated or pushed, hit, slapped, punched, bitten, kicked etc etc.

The problem is to convert cubic feet to liters.

Starting with 1 cu ft = 28.3168 liters

2 ft x 1 ft x 1 ft tank volume = 2 cu ft capacity

If tank is only half full that would be 1 cu ft of water which = 28.3168 liters

You put a thermometer on the surface of the ATM. The temperature should be much the same as the air temperature - unless there have been a lot of people withdrawing cash and the machine has been very busy.
