We know that 8 pigs can eat 6 bags of feed in 20 days. Now, we want to find out how long it will take 10 pigs to eat 15 bags of feed at the same rate. First, let's find the rate at which one pig eats in one day: Rate = (Bags of feed eaten) / (Number of pigs * Number of days) = 6 / (8 * 20) = 6 / 160 = 3 / 80 So, one pig eats 3/80 of a bag of feed in one day. Now, we want to find out how long it will take 10 pigs to eat 15 bags of feed. Let's use the formula: Time = (Amount of feed) / (Rate * Number of pigs) = 15 / ((3/80) * 10) = 15 / (30/80) = 15 * 80 / 30 = 40 days Therefore, it will take 10 pigs 40 days to eat 15 bags of feed at the same rate.

Which statement best describes the key changes in perspectives on inclusion? An inclusive program must consider the unique experiences of every child and family as well as the child's strengths and needs. There is a shift in thinking about individual programs as "inclusive programs" to thinking about inclusion as something that reflects the cultural influence of the family. There is a greater emphasis on barriers to full participation and the acknowledgement that all children are unique and must be fully and meaningfully engaged in a program. In an inclusive program all participants are accepted by their peers and other members of the community.
