Can the costitution be changed?

Yes, the constitution can be changed by changing the amendments. Also you can add onto the constitution and take off from the constitution, because some of the amendments are to be broken, because in America of the US you can be a free man/or woman, you are aloud to have freedom of speech, religions. Woman can vote now and the black people are not slaves and they too can vote, because most of all this is America and it's a free country to anyone and everyone.

What are the parts from the constitution that no longer apply?

Parts of the Constitution as originally approved have been changed by amendments. The first ten amendments to the constitution were, in general, additions to the constitution. Parts of the original constitution that have changed include amendments such as the one that provided for the direct election of United States Senators (they were once appointed by the individual State Legislatures.) Although the Fourteenth Amendment profoundly changed the relationship between the constitution and each citizen (by saying that all citizens had equal rights under the law and making the Bill of Rights applicable to all citizens) it was not an amendment that repealed any part of the original constitution specifically. But it did directly and fundamentally change portions of the original constitution in many ways. The Fourteenth Amendment changed the qualifications for elective national office by saying that officers of any state in rebellion against the United States were ineligible for such office, but this provision has essentially 'died off' as no one alive today meets that disqualification.

What is the number of formal admendments to the constitution?

There is a total of 27 amendments in the constitution. The first ten are known as the Bill of Rights and were added before the Constitution was ratified by 9 of the 13 states in 1789. The rest came off and on through the years. The 13, 14, and 15 are after the civil war and they make citizens of the slaves and give the right to vote to slaves. The 19th gives women the right to vote and was added in 1920. The last one added lowered the age of voting from 21 to 18 and that was added in 1971. It was argued that if a person could fight for their country at 18 they should be able to vote as well.
