I know mostly they make you learn up to 12 but would 20 or 100 be more useful? What number would be the best to learn up to so that I could do quick math in my head but so that it’s not useless?

*12 should be sufficient*

Hello everyone! My name is Giulia and I’m travelling to New York next July/August to improve my English! I would like to ask if anyone knows details about travelling from JFK Airport to Times Square… I mean, how much is it? Are there timetables? Is there a website with maps and explanations? What if I arrive at Newark International Airport? Will it be easier? Thank you very much!

please rate this out of 4. scale

The lesson I Learned

Procrastination is a obstacle that most Highschool students face at one point or another in their schooling career. Some people learn how to overcome it by forming good habits and others like me suffer for years by constantly putting things off. Although studying and being well-oragnized can be a challnege, the worthwhile reward is sucess. Narrowing down assignments helped me to create a well balanced shedule. Locating a differnt work station rather than in front of something thats distarcting or non resistet was a great remedy, also Another ambition I use is to use the reward system. By using these methods I was bound to hit glory and stop my terrible problem of procrasnating.

Narrowing down my assignments helped assist me to create a monethy timestable, where I could follow and work throughtout the course of the week or until the deadline. For instance when I had study for my science final in grade eight and I knew I had plan everything out so I could pass my class. Taking ten minute breaks in between my study period lets my mind be at peace and refreah memery so I can accompolish things more effecient. For example, my brain was so stressed out and could not think straight beacuse of finals week so instead I sliced an apple and took a few minutes to relax my body. As a result of that I manged to pull through and get good grades in most of my subjects.

Altering a new work station supported my focous, which I needed to control beacuse it was wondering into differnt dirctions. A location where I thought that was quiet and a place to hit the hay for books was the library for example, when I had learn the perodic table I had no where eles to study qiuet then the library so, I took the chance and I walked right in, and came out learning most of the elements from the table. Having a tutor gave me a better learing stuture of what I was learing in math class. For instances, when I was confused with algerbra and having a tough time learning the concept, I knew it was time to hire a tutor and ever since I never had a promblem with algerbra. Using these methods I was able to find a termendous learning envirnment so I could l work more effencenlty and independly.

Using the the reward system, did not just break my bad habit of procrasnating but increased my selfestem aswell. For intances, when I was complety finished my socials autobigrbephy I rewarded my self by giving ten minutes to use social netwroking sites such as Facebook, and surfing the internet. But also keeping in mind to say in between the limits and not abuse this privellge by playing internet games when I should stop. Rewarding myself would give me the oppertunity and goals which I could use in the future when I’m in a job.

Afterwards , I began to exert more effort in school work and began assembling a agenda and started to bugit my time when doing homeowrk. giving little treats to reward my self after comelting a task, would give me self motamotion. cutting down homework like do some in the library and then do the rest at home would leave me spare time to do other things that are important like working at a part time job. Although studying and being well-oragnized can be a challnege, the worthwhile reward is sucess. finally, these techenes i used were helpful however i also learned to take responsibily’s for my self actions as i was crossing down this road of sucess.
4=A 3=B 2.5=C+ 2=C 1=C-

I would give a C-
Very poor grammer, punctuation and spelling. Your thesis statement was ‘ok’ but you got worse and worse as you progressed through.

What would the driver look like in java BlueJ to get the multiplication table printed?

public class TimesTable
public static void main (String[] args) {
System.out.print(" |");
for (int i = 1; i <= 12; i++)
System.out.print(pad(i) + " ");
for (int i = 1; i <= 12; i++)
for (int i = 1; i <= 12; i++) {
System.out.print(pad(i) + "|");
for (int j = 1; j <= 12; j++) {
System.out.print(pad(i*j) + " ");
public static String pad(int x) {
String s = new String();
if (x < 10) s = " " + x;
else if (x < 100) s = " " + x;
else s = "" + x;
return s;

Ready my Friend

import java.util.Scanner;

* @author carlos juarez
class Main {

public static void main(String args[]) {
String name;

int n;
Scanner s;
s = new Scanner(;
System.out.println("Enter your name: ");
name =;
System.out.println("Enter the total number of subjects");
n = s.nextInt();
String[] subject = new String[n];
int[] marks = new int[n];

for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
System.out.println("Enter the name of Subject " + (i + 1));
subject[i] =;

for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
System.out.println("Enter the marks for " + subject[i]);
marks[i] = s.nextInt();

System.out.println("Name : " + name);
System.out.println("Number of subjects : " + n);

for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
System.out.println(subject[i] + "’s Score : " + marks[i]);

Im starting my first year at UBC in the faculty of Arts.
I’m just wondering, do you have to take the standardized timestable? On the date of the course registration, I didnt know about the standardized timestable, and picked my own courses. Is that okay?

As long as you’re not in Arts One or CAP, it’s fine.

echo "<td>";
if ($c != 0) {
echo $c;
echo "</td>";
echo "</tr>";

// Start the second row of numbers. This is the answer between the top right and first column of
// numbers multiplied by each other
for ($r = 1; $r < 13; $r++) {
// start the first column of numbers with a grey background
echo "<tr>";
echo "<td bgcolor=#cccccc>".$r."</td>";
for ($c = 1; $c < 13; $c++) {
// this number is the multiplication answer from the top row and first column numbers
echo "<td>";
echo $r * $c;
echo "</td>";
